PLEASE HELP!!We have blue water in our home that is only visible with a full bathtub amount. It isn't light refraction. It stains laundry, tastes like metal, and when left to sit for 24-48 hours, leaves a blue sharp-like looking sludge. It comes and goes every 6-8 months and no one can figure out what's happening.
Here is some background information about us/our home:Location: Niskayuna, NY (Upstate outside of Albany)
Built in 2007
600 feet off the road - copper pipe provides water.
IPEX in basement
Timeline of events2015 - purchased home

We're hoping someone has experienced and solved this issue. If so, please share!
