What are the fine white particles floating in the water from the tap? This has been present since before the water main break. I noticed it when the bottom of my tea kettle was coated with what I thought was hard water deposits but after I cleaned the kettle (vinegar then rinse with water) the same deposit was seen after only one kettle of boiled water.
I have been boiling my water - and still see those particles floating in the water. These particles pass through a coffee filter and I even see a few in the post Brita filtered water.
I am worried they may be hazardous. Even water used to boil potatoes may need to be filtered prior to use.
