Our expert says:
It's not unusual to find particles in your tap water after a plumber's been working on the system. These black particles could come from the black rubber fixtures in the system, like some geyser connections, washers etc. Or, they could be from rusting metal from inside the pipes. Either way, they are not a serious health hazard but you don't want to have to put up with them in the long term. You should soon stop seeing them in your water; if not, you'll have to get the issue seen to. Meanwhile, give your plumber a call and ask him what he thinks the cause might be.
Do you find the particles when you fill a glass from the cold tap? (Remember that for drinking and cooking, it's always better to use the cold tap.)
