What are the black particles in my Water after filtering

Category: Pur Water Filters

There could be several reasons why there are black particles in your water after filtering. It is difficult to say for sure without more information. Some possible reasons include:

  • The water contains naturally-occurring minerals, such as iron or manganese, which can appear as black particles when they are present in high concentrations.
  • The filter itself may be clogged or dirty, which can cause particles to become trapped in the water.
  • The water may be contaminated with bacteria or other microorganisms, which can appear as black particles when they grow in large numbers.

If you are concerned about the black particles in your water, I would recommend contacting your local water utility or a water testing laboratory for further assistance. They can help you determine the cause of the particles and suggest appropriate steps for addressing the issue.

Black particles are probably activated coal particles that have crept into the filtering process. The charcoal is not harmful. However, removal is done by washing your hands after replacing the water filter. Soak under water for 30 minutes, then wash and rinse. In that case, they are ready for use.

The black particles in your water may be a result of clogged filters or old mineral deposits on the inside of your faucet. To get rid of them:

1) Unscrew the cap from your faucet and remove it from its housing. Place it flat on a countertop or table so it’s easier to remove all the debris inside.

2) Use a toothbrush to scrub inside the faucet until you see that all debris has been removed — including any mineral deposits that may be causing this problem. If there are any mineral deposits left behind after scrubbing, you can try using a toothbrush with steel bristles instead of nylon ones like we showed here (they’re firmer).

3) Put all parts back into their housing and screw them back together tightly with pliers or a wrench if necessary!
