My water was turned off from the main line and when it turned

My water was turned off from the main line and when it turned back on and I turned on my bathroom faucet a sort of filter shot out of the end of the spout. It is sort of a thing that makes the water come out in a smooth triangular shape. It came out in two pieces and not sure how the two pieces go together before I put it back in the faucet opening. I will attach pictures of the 2 pieces and the spout. Any help is appreciated. Am I able to upload pictures?

The water from bathroom faucet never gets cold no matter how

The water from bathroom faucet never gets cold no matter how long I let it run. The kitchen faucet runs cold within seconds. The sinks are about 10 feet apart. The water heater is equidistant from them. Fixable? Different question. Just bought old house.Upstairs was updated and has 4 nice rooms with new electrical outlets but no plumbing at all so not rentable. What labor and costs am I looking at? I will take a Valium before I read your answer.

There! I was working with a different expert earlier but

Hi there! I was working with a different expert earlier but he seems to be offline and I'm hoping to make some progress on this project tonight. I'm trying to replace a bathroom faucet, and so far have been able to disconnect the supply lines and loosenthe nuts that on the underside of the bathroom counter. But there is a strange little extension branching out from the side of the valve (under the countertop) that is not permitting me to completely unscrew the nut, and so I don't know where to go from here.Is this something that has to be unscrewed and then the nut should unscrew after that? I keep trying to unscrew the little "branch" or extension (not sure what to call it) and am not having any luck. I looked online and can't find any other images of bathroomfaucets that have this kind of feature. I'm attaching a picture of what I'm talking about if that helps - the "branch" should be highlighted in red.

I just replaced the anode rod hot water heater.

Hi. I just replaced the anode rod for my hot water heater. because my hot water was discolored. When I pulled it out, it looks like the second part of the rod had fallen off. The first part came with the steel cable, but then fell off outside. The second half of the steel cable was just the cable....no anode rod part to it. Is this something I need to be worried about? The part that came out had heavy white (calcium?) build up on it.Also, I flushed the water heater and it was really rusty at first but then started to run pretty clear. IT's still discolored at my kitchen/bathroom faucet. Will that go away now?

I'm a desperate condo-owner looking

Hello -I'm a desperate condo-owner looking for someone to help me with an intractable problem with building hot water.Long story short, I have black debris in my hot water (from all faucets) in my unit for more that six months, and the HOA has been unable to fix it.The debris is ONLY in the hot water. All the pipes connecting my unit to the buidling water supply are copper; I've tried replacing any and all gaskets, valve catridges, etc, but no luck.I'm pulling my hair out trying to get them to fix it. I've tried plumbers, building engineers, etc. and I don't know where to turn. I thought someone here might be able to at least point me in the right direction.Thanks in advance,John
