: I can not turn off the faucet completely. There are samll pieces of teflon looking plastic coming out of the faucet. I had a plumber fix it three weeks ago and he said he plastic pieces were scoring the inside of the faucet. He said the plastice was coming from the hot water heater. Does this make since? If so, should I replace heater with a better quality? I also took same plastic out of the kithchen facuet.
It sounds like you have a bad dip tube in your water heater which has disintegrated and is being pumped through the lines...if this is the situation replace the water heater...goog luck...
