Water Has a Bad Taste/Odour


Possible Cause What to Do

Water Supply – household

If the taste or odour of water elsewhere in your household is unusual, you may need to contact your water supplier.

  • Refrigerator not used for an extended period
  • New Water Filter has been installed
Dispense 3-4 litres (10 qt) of water through the water filter to replenish with a fresh water supply. 

Water Supply – line

Exposure to heat can affect the taste of water. Trace the line supplying water to your kitchen – if it runs from the ceiling or past an oven, this may alter how your water tastes.
