How to get dirty water in Phasmophobia

Sometimes if a ghost enters the sink area and interacts with the sink, the water will turn brown. Other times, the ghost will need a bit of persuading. There are a few things that will anger a ghost, it really doesn’t like being called by its name, so trying to find out its name using a ouija board or spirit box is a good idea. Doing other things to anger the ghost, like sticking together as a group, moving objects, and turning the lights on will also anger the ghost – making it likely that it’ll wander and flick on some taps.

Once the ghost interacts with the taps and the water runs brown, all that’s left to do is snap a picture. Make sure that the room is clear of smudge sticks and the crucifix as these items subdue the ghost and it won’t interact with the sink.
