Black Water and Potassium Chloride Water Softener Pellets
Posted by Joe Daniels on August 16, 19100 at 10:34:16:
I have a problem with black water coming from the hot water supply. It usually happens when the faucet is first turned on and clears up within a short time. The water supply is from a well that we have been using for over 20 years with no problems. This problem started last year and I have been trying to figure out what could be causing it. Recently, I have been thinking that the problem began after I purchased a new water softener and switched from using sodium chloride pellets to using potassium chloride pellets. Could the potassium chloride pellets be causing the plack water? Any thoughts you might have on this problem would be appreciated. Thanks.
