Re: Sand/Grit from hot water faucits

Have you checked for a leak? Turn off all faucets, then look at the water meter. Look closely at the little red triangle: if it's turning at all, you have a leak.

As the water flows across the leak, it can actually create a suction (venturi effect), drawing in sediment. Yes, even on a pressurized line.
