I just got back from eating sushi and it looks identical. That's what prompted me to upload the video. I was thinking about that call the whole time I was munching down on my flying fish and smelt eggs. The smelt eggs are orange and the flying fish eggs are black. It looks just like the stuff coming out of the faucet.

I don't think that is zeolite. Ion exchange resin is one thing, zeolite is another.

This isn't my area of expertise but I think IER is a polymer that has extremely polar covalent bonding sites for ion to bond to which is what allows the ion exchange process to take place. Zeolite is sort of a "molecular filter" it has pores that are so fine that large molecules can be trapped by them. Kinda like an RO membrane but the pores arenít as small.

I could be wrong about that though. Time to google.......

I know I dumped bags labeled Zeolite in a commercial softener at a restaurant we plumbed. Sucked, the bags were heavy and the hole at the top of the was small. Made the floor very slippery.
