Water Quality FAQs

Why do my strainers keep stopping up with white particles?

This is caused by a defective dip tube in the water heater. If this plastic tube is defective, it sheds its plastic, which then makes it way through your plumbing and gets trapped in the strainers. To remedy this, contact a licensed, professional plumber or the water heater manufacturer.
