Why is there a smell or taste to my water?

There are lots of factors that can affect the taste or smell of your water. We treat and test all the water we supply and sometimes the cause of a taste or smell can relate to issues with your private plumbing or appliances in your home.

There’s more information about causes and solutions on our pages for taste and smells of chlorine, antiseptic, earthy or musty.

If you believe that heating oil, thinners, petrol, diesel or creosote has been spilt near to an underground pipe, don’t drink the water and call us immediately on 0344 346 2020.
