|In response to Re: Particles in Water|
: Hello. When I fill the bath tub, I notice black fleck-like particles in the water. The particles do not disintegrate when rubbed between my fingers, but a knife can cut them. They are in the sink filters too. We are on community water lines, not on a well. The plumber said that they are most likely caused by a disintegrating anode rod. He recommended that I have the hot water heater replaced. The hot water heater is a Rheem built in 1991.
: I was skeptical because of the plumber's diagnosis because he did not check the rod; and everything I have read about disintergrating anode rods mentions a sulfur smell, not black particles.
: Can you please identify the problem with our water? Thank you!!
I had the SAME problem a few months ago. People thought I was crazy! I swear, there were black specks floating in my water!!! I noticed it in the kitchen.
