orange clay in hot water after no use for 3 weeks

orange clay in hot water after no use for 3 weeks

Had a new propane hot water heater installed. The hot water was rusty the first day. Then a few weeks latter left on vacation. When we returned the not water had an orange clay substance. We drained the tank and flushed the line until water was clear. Is there any action needed to prevent this from happening again?
