I have a strange problem in that when I run first run my bathroom sink there
is an odor that comes from it. However it's not the water as that taste
fine, plus it does not happen on other sinks or the tub. It seems to only
happen during the first minute or so and then it;s OK. Any ideas of what to
Thanks in advance
Check the trap under the sink. make sure it does not have a leak that
causes it to go dry. you may be smelling sewer gas displaced by the initial
flow of water. Is there any oder before you turn on the sink.
Is the odor organic or chemical like? Try running the water with the drain
closed. do you still smell it. This test should help discriminate if it is
from the water or the drain.
