Help! My Tap Water Smells Like Fish

Treat Those Nasty Water Odors in Your Home or Business

If your tap water smells like fish, fear not; chances are your well or water system is not infested with little Nemos, nor is it infected with bacteria that pose a direct threat to your health. But who wants to drink—or shower with, or clean dishes or laundry with—smelly water?

Oftentimes, the culprit of fishy smelling water is very simply the result of certain organic materials built up in your well, pipes, faucets, or drains. Both barium and cadmium, in amounts excessive to EPA regulations, can give water a fishy odor. Other causes of this particular odor may be the existence of chloramine (which is used to disinfect public water systems) or algae blooms, especially in summer.
