    Water or plumber experts?

    So my Kohler toilet was running (2 yrs old and chain must've caught up) so I removed cover to fix and I see this film and white particles floating. I expect to see rust with iron water but never saw this. I have a whole house filter as well as a salt water softener. Is it salt and what's the film?

    So it appeared my front left tire had some play it so with further inspection it looked like a tie rod was shot. But then looking further, one or both of the steering mech brackets are bent. I do work my machine hard but can't imagine where that could get bent. Should I replace the whole thing?
