New pipe odor
Posted by Emmett Culley on November 27, 2001 at 23:41:53:
I just completed a complete kitchen remodel. I user galvan ized pipe to extend the original "in the wall" plumbing and copper tubing to extend from the brass wall vales to the faucet.

There is a distinct metallic oder coming from the water each time I turn on the faucet. I smell it in both the hot and cold streams. After a few seconds the odor decreases to undetectable.

What's the odor, what can I do about it, and how long should it last.
