Suffering with Foul Tasting Water?
Trust New Hampshire’s Clean Water Center with Your Water Treatment
Foul tasting water not only affects private wells across New Hampshire; it can also affect municipal water systems that treat their water with chlorine or other cleansing agents. If your water tastes bad, it is obvious you have a problem with your systems and should contact a reputable water treatment company. But how do you know when your foul tasting water is actually hazardous to your health?
Capital Well Clean Water Center Can Help
There are many causes of foul tasting water, most of which are harmless (though incredibly unpleasant):
- Bitter: A bitter or medicinal taste may be the result of copper corrosion in your plumbing, an elevated level of sulfates, or zinc.
- Metallic: Manganese and iron, two naturally occurring chemicals, can cause a metallic taste in your water, as can the presence of zinc due to the corrosion of galvanized plumbing.
- Salty: Chloride compounds are found naturally in water, but an excessively salty taste can also be the result of human or animal waste in the water supply.
- Chemical: Most frequently found in municipal water systems, a chemical-like taste is often the result of chlorine disinfectants.
- Gasoline: Leakage from nearby fuel sources is a serious concern, and should be investigated immediately.
- Rotten Eggs: The presence of hydrogen sulfide can lead to the flavor of sulfur or a rotten egg-like smell.
When Should You Worry About the Taste of Your Water?
We recommend a water test any time you experience a foul taste or smell. In some cases, the simple installation of a treatment system can restore the pure, refreshing taste you’d expect. In others, a test can reveal more detrimental issues, such as a cracked or compromised well.
