|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.
