Why does my water taste bad?

Under normal condition, water does not have any taste. However, different kind of water taste a little bit different. Some people prefer mineral water, while some like tap water. So why does water taste different and sometime it taste bad or funny?

First, here are a few factors affect the taste of water: 1. The mineral and impurities in the water 2. Personal taste. Your age, body condition, eating habits, and the area you live in can change your taste. 3. Temperature and climate change. Therefore, here are some reasons that make your water taste funny:

It might be sitting there for too long If you are used to drink cold water, your water will taste different when it is not cold anymore. Another possibility is the pH in the water decreases, which can happen after gases such as carbon dioxide dissolve in the water.It might be the chemicals used to treat your water Most municipal water is treated by chlorine. Chlorine is used to disinfection and a small amount of chlorine is not harmful to human body. If your water has a stronger tastes or smell of bleach, you might want to check if your water quality.Maybe it is because you are sick Not only your sense of smell but your sense of taste can change when you are sick.

If your water taste weird and you are not sick, it is probably because there is something in your water. Tap water is not pure.
