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.

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
