A Handyman Helping Hand

Drinking Water suddenly foul

Posted By: Tim Johnston

We finished building a new house four months ago. The water supply is from a community well dug several hundred feet deep. At first the water tasted fine, now it is foul, with a characteristic sulfer oder and taste. At first it was just one sink, then another, now the whole house (10 sinks total). My neighbors water seems fine. We used a reputable plumber, PVC pipes for the main line tap, copper pipes in the house, plastic connections from the cut-off valves to the sink valves, and Delta faucets.

Any thoughts on the cause of the problem or a solution?

Interestingly, our fridge has a built in Culligan water filter for the door dispenser, but it has no effect on this particular oder and taste.
