I'm not surprised. I didn't see anything come out of the two I flushed. I just did it out of an abundance of caution.

I use on of those things ya get in an aquarium or water bed shop..... connects to faucet...will fill or drain

After soaking for 3-4 hours in HOT water.... connect this bugger and alternate hot and cold water at about 5 gpm every 2 minutes for about 15 minutes.

I paid $18 for it, but this was first one I found online....
