Help & Advice

Why does my water taste or smell earthy?

An earthy taste may sometimes occur in water supplied from a surface water source such as an open reservoir.

It may also be the result of water standing in the pipework for a long period of time.

To improve the taste of your water you should flush your taps for 2-3 minutes. This will remove any water which has been standing in the pipework.
