I am getting a deposit on my flapper valve over time and it is causing it to leak.
If I clean it the leak stops.
It is a dark reddish color.
I think it is an iron deposit. And there is also some sand deposits also.
Any way to slow it down or clean it more easily ?
Whole house water filter or possibly a water softener would get rid of
some solids. Fine rust can wear faucet washers quickly. When I moved
into this house I'd change the Delta seals every six month and after
adding a sediment filter they went for 20 years.
I have a well and a whole house sediment filter which picks up iron and
grit. Some things deposit over time, so it is not a complete cure.
You could put one in yourself and I only need to change filter every 6
months for a few dollars.

What makes it better than the $10 carbon filters I use? I use maybe 2

I see it is an Amway product. My water would have to be really bad
before i spend $1100 for the setup and $450 a year instead of $30.
Of course some water treatment system can cost 50K grand like my
friend's well water coming from 250 feet down. What is the 450.00 a pop
filter made of? Does it have gold lining or some thing? Some one needs
to have their head examined.
