Does your home’s water have a bad taste?

Do you want to improve the taste of your water?

Bad taste is a very common complaint that’s usually associated with well water. Well water comes from rain and runoff seeping through the ground. While sitting underground, the water can absorb contaminants in the soil that affect its taste. Private well water is not regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), so you have to check your own well water for contaminants!

Common contaminants that affect water’s taste include:

Hydrogen Sulfide – Hydrogen Sulfide is a colorless gas that is created when underground minerals or vegetation break down. It gives your water a rotten egg or sulfur taste and smell. Similar sulfates can make water salty.
Copper A heavy metal, copper can enter the water supply through natural deposits underground or through the corrosion of household plumbing. In large amounts, it can give water a bitter taste.
Minerals like Aluminum, Lead, & Iron – These natural heavy metals are usually associated with hard water. Hard water can be described as metallic, bitter, or salty. These contaminants can enter the water supply through soil erosion or degradation of water pipes, including dangerous lead pipes.
Pesticides Used to kill insects and other pests to promote agriculture, pesticides can give water a chemical taste. Pesticides can enter your water through runoff or can seep into the water supply directly if used near your well.
Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium – These minerals are known as the “good minerals” because they’re minerals humans need. In large amounts, they can provide a metallic or soapy taste.
Chlorine and Other Disinfectants – Chlorine is a gas used to disinfect and kill bacteria and can be used to disinfect water. Chlorinating city water is common. Chlorine or other disinfectants can make your water smell or taste like a swimming pool.
