      I have an A.O. Smith gas water heater installed by the building in 8/95. Im connected to city water. For several weeks I have been finding white particles in my faucet screens. It is so bad that not a single drop comes from the spot. The faucet supply lines are clogged with these particles too. I heard it could be the dip tube. What do I do now?

      Every faucet in my house has been replaced. I had to remove all the filters on all spickets. My washing machine continually gave me a problem until I replaced it. My dishwasher is a mess. Finally, I called a plumber when I coulnt find replacement parts from locale hardware store. He told me why Ive been have such a problem. Now, How do I make a claim or join in on the litigation? I have a GSW water heater. Can you believe it, I thought those white chips were from the city water supply or maybe I had faulty pipes somewhere in the house. HELp
