If you notice your water is smelling funky, you may have hard water in your home. Hard water contains minerals such as magnesium and calcium, which makes it considered hard water. This water can contain a funky odor, but it is safe to drink and is not harmful. If your water smells like rotten eggs, then you may need to drain and clean out your water heater. This is due to the buildup of hydrogen sulfide, which is not harmful to human health but can cause corrosion in your pipes. If you notice moldy or earthy smells, it is recommended to clean your faucet you notice it on with vinegar. If you smell it coming from other faucets, we recommend calling a professional to test your water quality.
Funky-smelling water is never a good sign. If you notice your tap water smelling suspicious, it is best to contact a professional rather than guess yourself. Call us today so you can get your water back to being odorless as soon as possible!
