Got a shock today when checking my pre-filters, new water supply pipes works have been going on for quite some weeks, but I never expected to find what felt and looks like clay the sediment filter had only been changed around 4-5 weeks ago.

Its strange, because I use the 10 inch fibredine carbon block and 10 inch sediment filter, and both seem near on spotless when i change them.My tap waters 530. The carbon blocks meant to be after 37000 i think, but i let it go way over 40000 and it looked the same as when it went in. Sediment filters meant to be 10 or 12000 I think, and left that to 15000 odd and it just had a mild beige discolouring, bit like a rich tea biscuit, but nothing like yours. Amazing all the ways our various water differs from region to region.

I think its just about on their limit. Thinking about it, i do know of quite a few who've had gallstones removed, my mum included. like little stones of limescale. They fall out the kettle sometimes. A lot only drink bottled.

This was during main water pipe replacement works last year so there was a lot 💩 coming through, the thing is at anytime you don't know what 💩 is coming through so always best to keep a check on them on a regular basis.
