The white particles are possibly pieces of the dip tube from your hot water heater. Several manufacturers of hot water heaters used polypropylene dip tube between 1993 and 1996. These dip tubes have a tendency to fail and break up. If you run out of hot water quickly, this is a sign your dip tube has failed. Another test is to clean the aerator and then run only cold water. If the particles do not appear, run you hot water and see if the particles appear.
These white particles are very likely to be pieces of the dip tube from your hot water heater. Several brands of hot water heaters manufactured in the 1980's were made using a faulty dip tube that disintegrates over time. The dip tube carries the cold water from the top of the hot water heater to the bottom, where the cold water is heated. Over time, the dip tube disintegrates and the white dip tube particles are carried through the household pipes.

If the material looks or feels like a plastic product, it is the dip tube located in the hot water heater. Many plastic dip tubes deteriorate with time and must be replaced. It is recommended that a licensed plumber perform this task. This became a common problem when manufacturers began using plastic dip tubes some years ago. If the particles do not appear to be plastic and crumble easily in your hand, they are from mineral build up in the hot water heater.

If you live in an area with hard water, it may be caused by calcium deposits as well.
Dwyer Oil Since 1875: Frequently Asked Questions
A micron is 1/25,000th of an inch. A human hair is about 150 micros; the smallest thing that can be seen with the naked eye is about 10 microns. It is the largest particles, above 5.0 microns, that cause equipment problems and are what most filters are able to catch. However, 98% of the particles in the air are smaller than 1.0 micron. These "sub-micron" particles are not caught by most filters and get through our bodies' natural defenses when inhaled.
Clogging problems are mainly issues of design. If a natural area with grass or exposed soil is allowed to drain stormwater across a pervious concrete pavement, fine material can be introduced into the system causing localized clogging. Vegetative matter can collect on the surface of the pervious concrete causing some clogging, but routine sweeping or vacuuming will restore porosity.

Yes, if the tap water at your house is drinkable and you have added Maxmyer NanoCalcium, any impurities that existed will be neutralized and drinking the white particles will not affect you.

The water pipes are naturally lined with a calcium deposit. When pressure changes occur, such as during plumbing work, water main breaks, hydrant flushing or other disruptive procedures, some of this calcium may break loose from the pipe and come out the water faucet.
