|In response to Re: red tinged water w/ black particles|
: : 2nd bath (3 kids) has red tinged water with black particles settled on bottom. Thought it was old water heater, drained, same problem.
: : Replaced steam boiler and at same time decided to replace 50 gal. with high cap. 80 gal. 3 KIDS.
: : Same problem exists!
: A lot of LI (Wantah, PlainView, Smithtown, ETC) water is well water with lots of mineral content.
: I had a LI and Weschester Licenses and decided to concentrate on NYC, but I do remember installing filters prior to entering the hot water tanks to protect the tanks from mineral deposits being cooked inside the tank and possibly blocking the T&P.
: I am normally against whole house filtration as why filter water being flushed down a toilet?
: Have you water tested prior to installing any filters so you know what your up against.
: Not all LI water I would consider potable no matter what the powers that be say.
Have not tested the water yet was trying to determine the valididy of the filter concept.
This is an old house and strange things happen.
