Why does my water taste bad?

Why does my water taste bad?

No one should have to live with water that isn’t both clean and refreshing. Unfortunately, city-mandated water treatment practices often leave behind traces of certain compounds that can create an undesirable odor or metallic taste to your water. Although these traces are usually harmless, they can be bothersome and difficult to get used to.

There are a variety of possible causes for bad-tasting tap water, including:

  • Dissolved solids from natural sources, sewage, street run-off, industrial waste, or water treatment chemicals
  • Chlorine
  • Natural metals such as copper, iron, and lead
  • Algae, which is common during summer months due to high temperatures and humidity

One of the best ways to improve the taste and overall quality of your drinking water is to install a water filtration system in your home or office. At American Water TX, we offer a broad variety of Kinetico products that will create a noticeable difference in your water at a low cost to you.
