Anybody experiencing small floating particles in their solar heating systems? Color is off white, looks like there might be a hint of green (copper oxide?). I don't know if these particles are comimg from a degrading set of solar panels, little green animals or what. These particles readily clog the built in filters of our condo washing machines, hot water only, of course.

Sounds like calcium from hard water.

You may also find these particles at the bottom of your hot water storage tank and water heaters. To help your equipment last longer, flush out the tanks every 6 monthes or so.
