First of all the water heater is about 3 years old. We began noticing little black specks in the bathtub. I drained the water heater and removed the flexible hose (hot water side) from the top of the water heater. When I stuck my finger down in the hole my finger came out with black oily substance on it. What could that be?

The problem was the Sharkbite braided flex connectors. They disove in chlorine.
