Hello, we have a water deposit and have noticed that the water coming out of the tap is smelling and tasting off.

Is this due to the very hot weather?

TIA.

Firstly why are you drinking the tap water, why do you think people buy bottled water from the supermarket,

The smell is probably down to the hot weather

Good Question but instead of adding to the plastic problem, having to dispose of all those bottles.

 I would suggest  a water filtration system works out cheaper in the long run as well

Hi, thanks for the reply however I didn't say I was drinking it.

We shower etc and that's how we have realised there is a odour to it.

Hi thanks for the reply. 

They would sooner jump on you for surmising that you drink tap water rather than respond in a nice civilised way . Typical of this forum at the moment . Good advice Dario
