Crystals collecting in faucet aerator (well water)!

I have well water with a whole house arsenic reduction treatment system installed, which includes a 5 micron pre filter, 2 media tanks and a 5 micron post filter. I replaced my kitchen sink faucet aerator with a new one and have noticed that I'm getting some kind of a crystal build up in the aerator. The crystals are short, thin fibers that look like asbestos. I thought that maybe the poly spun pre filter might be breaking down and somehow getting through the post treatment filter, but I changed both filters with new 5 micron filters and I'm still getting the crystals (fibers) collecting in the aerator. The well water tank is before the arsenic system. I don't know if this is happening just when using the cold water or the hot water or both!
