Our neighborhood is getting old, a water main broke a week ago. We didn't even notice, since the switchover to another path was seamless.
But two days ago, after the repair, when the switch back to that pipe occurred, we got a slug of very fine sand.
Plugged up several shower heads, but worse, it also plugged up the grit screen in the washing machine, stopping cold water flow :-(
So I had to pull the washer up out of its recess, take the valve out and clean its screens... PITA :-(
Anyone familiar with any quick-change-out filters that I could insert, say in-line with the hoses, to make the job less painful? ...Jim Thompson
