Here’s the situation: On occasion when I’m filling the bath up I’ll notice a clump of some unidentifiable material come out of the faucet and into the tub along with the water. It is a gray color, no smell. Most of it is suspended as a mist in the water but on occasion little balls of the material form and sink to the bottom of the tub. If I pick them up they dissolve on my fingers kind of like pencil lead leaving a streak of blackish material.
This has been isolated to the bathtub but today my wife emailed me to say its happening in the kitchen now. I drink this water, shower in it, and my kids bathe in it…I’m freaked out. This is an older house (about 30-40 years old) in decent condition in Levittown PA. I have not found any info on the web about widespread water problems in Levittown.
Does anyone have any idea what I can do? I’d like to have a sample tested but have no idea what kind of organization might do something like that. My fear is that it is some kind of treated solid waste that is somehow making it into the water system. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
