In a pristine state, water is colorless, tasteless and odorless. Water that smells or tastes funny is the primary reason people turn to bottled water, which is expensive and harmful to the environment. Have you experienced?
- Earthy or musty taste and odor: The result of compounds released due to decayed vegetation and typically associated with different forms of algae.
- “Rotten egg” smell: Another common source of smelly water is hydrogen sulfide. In high enough concentrations, the “rotten egg” smell can leave an unpleasant odor on hair and clothing and accelerate corrosion of metal parts in appliances.
- Metallic taste: A metallic taste to your water indicates the presence of metals such as iron, copper, manganese or zinc. Iron and manganese are often naturally occurring. Copper and zinc can come from an aging water distribution system or the corrosion of copper plumbing and brass fittings.
