godawful smell on dishes
Posted by Nancy on November 10, 1999 at 16:58:57:
Our water does not smell, but new dishes and silverware
washed by hand periodically reek with an odor like
rotting seaweed or sewer material combined with a stone
or metallic odor. The smell usually disappears in an
half hour, but reoccurs every time a dish is washed or when it
has food on it--we have to use clorox to kill the odor.
Could backflow cause this? Our pipes are joined with
the fellow's upstairs--he reports that periodically his
toilet fills really slowly and he has to wait overnight
to have enough water to flush--could we be getting his
outflow?
