Black specks in hot water?
We noticed black specks that smudged our tub and silicone dishes and noticed it was only when we ran hot water. It’s coming out from all faucets.
Upon research online we figured it had to be something with the hot water tank so we had a plumber come out to look. I initially thought it was the flex lines but we have copper flex lines so that’s not it. The plumber opened the flex lines to see some rubber rings that had deteriorated a little bit so he replaced that and flushed the tank a few times.
Fast forward a day later, there’s now way more black specks coming out - like if I put the pieces together it would be way more than that rubber ring so I don’t think that was the problem. I’m not even sure it’s rubber or not. When I put a piece on my finger and rub it leaves like a black chalk mark almost. Anyone have any idea?!
