If You See White Flakes in Your Tap Water, This Is What It Means (www.familyhandyman.com)

If you see white flakes swirling around in your drinking water, don’t panic. There’s a simple explanation.

There are some things that totally turn me off certain foods — a dry piece of chicken, too much salt on something, cheese left out of the refrigerator too long. The same goes for drinks, too. If you’ve ever seen white flakes floating in your tap water, you may be inclined to dump it out and buy bottled water instead.

Not so fast, though. There are many benefits of drinking water from your tap, even the kind that’s not perfectly clear. The white fragments swirling around in your glass of water don’t mean it’s unsafe to drink!
