Particles in tap water

erichalias | Nov 24, 2012 06:21 PM

Hi all, wanted to get your thoughts. I took a close look at a glass of water from the refrigerator dispenser (new filter just installed), and it had some particles floating around in the water. Not a *lot*, but enough for me to clearly see them floating around. They mostly looked like little white dots, but a few were longer strands, maybe 2-3 mm. They're not just tiny air bubbles. Does anyone know what these particles might be? Should the water filter be catching them? I live in LA, if that can give any clues.

Thanks for your help!
