Flushing the system:
This is done by running water through the system until the preservative cannot be detected in a sample glass of water. The preservative leaves a film on the water and also has a bitter taste. If you are seeing this in your water after a new installation, flush and test until no hints of the preservative can be detected. Please note if there is a white color to the water that settles out towards the top of the glass, this is most likely caused by tiny air bubbles in the water. This should subside over time as excess air in the system is removed. The air bubbles in the water will not affect the quality of your drinking water.
