    Question Problem with metallic taste in water

    I have a peculiar issue. In my home with copper pipes, the main bathroom faucet has water that tastes VERY metallic. It is only this tap in my entire home that has the issue. I have read that acidic water can cause problems with copper pipes, but our tap water is a close to liquid rock as it can get (very alkaline, very hard, high ph). The issue showed up a couple of months ago, and I am wondering what might be the problem. I can fix plumbing stuff, just don't know a lot about it, so any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Your water bad taste can be a result of many different problems: pipes, sediments, chemicals, supply lines, faucet, rubber washers, metals, and more.

    It's virtually impossible to diagnose without testing.

    One remedy is a whole house filtering system.

    Some water systems have a high mineral concentration giving the consumer a salty or soda taste. In the case of Iron and Manganese, a strong metallic taste is readily detected in water.
