I am having a similar problem as posted here http://www.bobvila.com/BBS/blackgreasyfloating_sludge_in_hot_water_supply_lines-Plumbing-1-T5605.html#5605
I have black greasy material in my hot water. When I touch the material it just leaves a black streak. Unfortunately, I do not see a braided stainless steel or copper connector like in the previous message. Do Whirlpool flame lock hot water heaters contain a lining that could disintegrate?
The Whirlpool folks say this is sediment, does this sound correct?
Anyone have any other suggestions?
