    Default Water/Plumbing problems

    Anyone ever had this problem?

    I woke up this morning and found a strange rust colored substance in my toilet...when I turned on the faucet to the sink, some tiny beadlike structures flowed out with the water...rust colored...

    It has now occured in every faucet and toilet and tub in the house. Could this be the resin beads from the water softener itself? I've got a couple of clogged drains from this and a plumbing service coming in the morning. The water softener has salt. Even the washer is now acting up...

    I would guess Spicoli would be our plumbing expert. Fortunately I haven't had the issue you are describing....

    Good Luck, and hopefully its something very cheap to fix.

    Well, it turns out that the beads were the resin from the water softener. Time to get a new water softener! Haha.

    The service guy was able to flush all of the lines in the house and unclog all fixtures. He also flushed the water heater.

    One time I woke up in a cold sweat with the room filling up with what looked like blood.... but it could have been a different issue from yours.

    No, You have to rent a water softner. I buy bottled water b/c the water is hard. I also have to scrub the hell out of my shower with bom ade every two to three days.
