        My faucets have aerator screens on them and white paricles keep clogging the faucets slowing down the flow dramatically. We are on a neighborhood well system and we have a water softner. What are the white particles or where are they coming from ?????

          Check your H/W heater and see if it is an AO Smith the company KNOWN for defective dip tubes failures like the one THIS COMPANY never told me about.
          If it not a dip check the mineral content of your water supply

            sounds like a dip tube to me , if you e-mail me a [email protected] i’ll send you some info about faulty dip tubes used by all water heater co’s except one . There is some paperwork to complete but you may qualify to get yours fixed or replaced for free.

            best wishes
