Bathroom Remodels forum: sediments in our water

I've been researching for weeks and cannot seem to find the answer to this issue. Anyway, I'll spell it all out.

Our area has super hard water, so last year, I installed a water softener, whole house sediment filter, and a new hot water heater on that same day because our old one had so much sediment.

Since installing everything, we have been getting a ton of black, and white sediment in our shower, which has been causing the shower heads to become clogged and one even broke. It gets so bad that if I leave the filter screen in the showerhead, barely any water comes out because it gets clogged. It also appears to be happening with our bathroom sink faucet. The softener is definitely working because I notice a difference in the feel of our water. The filter also appears to be working because it gets brown every few months before changing it.

The sediment feels like sand when it comes out, and it almost looks like black pepper when it collects at the bottom of the tub. Some pieces are white or translucent that feel like sand.

I can solve this by hiring a professional plumber ( https:/ ), but due to the pandemic, right now, I can't afford it. It would be great if someone here can help me with this.

Thanks to anyone that can help with suggestions.
