mildew smelling water
Posted by Neil on July 08, 2004 at 20:58:39:
I have scanned several forums, and this problem is a recurring one. I replaced a kitchen faucet and then started to notice a mildew smell in the first 10 seconds of water discharge. After 10 sec or so it'd gone. I don't get this with the hot water line, or in the bathroom sink, shower or toilet. I have replaced the supply hoses from the shut-off to the new faucet, but the problem still persists. I seems to occur in the warmer spring and summer times and stop in the cooler fall and winter times. I have narrowed it down to the faucet and supply line, and not the drain as some posters are telling others. What is this? Can it be solved?
