Musty, earthy, fishy taste or smell?
Caused by algae, molds and bacteria that live in water and
can multiply within a home’s plumbing system.
Metallic taste or smell?
Generally caused by metals such as iron and manganese, these
substances not only taste and smell bad but can also be harmful to your health.

what causes soap scum in tubs and showers and spots on faucets and fixtures. Hard water is also what causes scaling in appliances,
which results in less
