What are the white particles coming from my tap?


The white particles are most likely either calcium carbonate deposits (scale) or the result of a deteriorating hot water heater plastic “dip tube.”

  • If the particles float they could be coming from the heater’s plastic dip tube. Replace the dip tube or contact the manufacturer.
  • If the particles do not float, they are probably calcium carbonate and/or magnesium which are often left behind when water is heated or evaporates.
