Bad tasting water
Posted by Dave on October 19, 1999 at 17:08:05:
I have a strange problem that just started about 2 weeks ago. The taste of the water from the cold tap in my kitchen changed. It has a slight metallic taste now, you can still drink it, but it doesn't taste very good. This seemed to happen overnight - for the 11 years I've lived there, it has tasted fine, then one day it is bad. What is also strange is that the hot water tap, and all the other taps in the house do not have this problem. Any ideas how a single pipe could suddenly change the taste of the water it delivers? What should I do about it, replace the pipe, or just get a filter?
