as far as I know nobody, in the house had been putting sand down the drain.. can it be a broken pipe letting sand seep in?
I would think if that was the case you would notice an extra wet area, or an extra high water bill.
I don't know the answer for sure, but maybe it has to do something with the water heater.
I changed my anode rod and did a flush and you would not believe the crap that came out of my tank, now the water is clearer.
