This morning when I went to turn on my bathtub faucet black specks came out of the water! The water seemed to have a grayish tint to it, and a lot of little black specks clinging to the bottom of my tub. Any idea what this is and what is causing it? I live in an apartment and my handyman is a total goof! About a year ago the apartments water softener system broke down and I experienced the same thing happening now--but he claims it is not the same thing now. I've asked my neighbors about their water and none of them have any complaints. Help! I can't stand the thought of taking a shower in this water!!!
