|In response to Re: Water taste like plastic with water softener|
: I saw a message on your website dated 9/8 from a person named Les, don't know what year describing my exact same problem. We, too, finally decided to install a water softener. The water softener is softening the water, but we have a horrendous odor (both hot and cold water) that smells like burnt plastic. It is not the rotten egg smell people talk about where you have to replace the hot water heater anode rod. I never could access the answers to the other person's same questions. Please help. Our plumber has never heard of this problem and thought I was nuts until I got on the Internet and found someone else did, too.
What brand of softener, control valve and/or resin do you have?
