We regularly (and for long before this "recent" algae) have to replace our washing machine filter, sink filters, and irrigation filters. In my opinion this is not a recent issue at all: it's been going on for quite some time, and we really don't understand why.
Intuitively, algae emerges from standing water that is allowed to breed the algae. Where could this be happening? I assume there are filters at the water distribution system intake: how are those performing? Do they need to be cleaned and/or replaced often? Or are they missing altogether?
I appreciate Mr. Carrasco's words but I question the completeness of his report and feel there must be missing information. Let's be transparent here and get to the root cause and solution.
