Question

Tiny bubbles in toilet bowl


Hi, folks. My wife is worried about something I just can't get worked up about, but I'll ask for opinions for her sake...

Sometimes we will see tiny air bubbles inside the toilet bowl (i.e., in the water, sticking to the porcelain) in little clusters.

She thinks that because we have a whole-house water filter (which removes the chlorine), these could be indicators of some kind of organism growing in the bowl -- or pipes or tank and ending up in the bowl.

Opinions?

I won't say what I think they are so as not to bias you. And for what it's worth, yes we thoroughly clean/disinfect these toilets at least once a week.

Are you on a well or public water supply, that comes from either Aquifer's, or a lake? Does the water do the same, when you fill a glass up from the sink? Also, what is your location? You can update at http://www.diychatroom.com/profile.php?do=editprofile in the "Additional Information" box.

+1

If you are well, not uncommon given mineral content and other contribuiting factors.
