Oily Film On Standing Water
If you notice an oily film on top of standing water in your home (toilets and bathtubs are most common), this could be an indication that oil and grease have made their way into your water supply. This could be from inadequate treatment and filtration, or a leak in the water main. If you rely on well-water, it could mean that the water table is contaminated with oil. You should contact your local water or environmental authority if you notice this on a regular basis.
