This has been happening at my house for the last 3 months! Kitchen sink screen and RO-prefilter clogging up regularly. It is costly to have to replace my RO pre-filter all the time. Shower filter clogged up so I just removed screen. I will have to add a whole house filter soon if they can't get this problem solved.

Algae isn't a bug, it's a feature. Counts as a daily serving of fruits and vegetables!!
