Mike, unless there is another possible source in the home, like a water softener or similar item which hasn't been mentioned, I'd have to say I'm stumped as to this coming from inside the home, or the line from your water meter, as with the age of the home it would surely also be copper or plastic. I'd also check hose bibs to see if the flecks were present, and then check with more neighbors. I'm also confused as to why this is not causing a real headache with your laundry; if these flecks are passing through the filter screens at sink faucets, they would surely be doing the same at the clothes washer.

If this has been an ongoing problem, I think my next steps would be as Joe mentioned, speaking further with the water co. & having a sample tested.
