LESLIE: Doug in Utah, you’ve got The Money Pit. What can we do for you today?
DOUG: … that is coming through when we take a shower, when we use the sink; and the situation is the house is only four years old and what could this be. And it hasn’t always been that way. It just started within the last couple of months.
TOM: Doug, are you on well water or city water?
DOUG: City water.
TOM: That’s unusual. You may want to have a water test done just to confirm for yourself that there’s nothing harmful there. But when you have city water, generally there is very thorough oversight of the quality of the water .
TOM: If odor is a problem or taste is a problem what you can do on the point of you side is add a large charcoal filtration system  right near the main water valve and that will run that water through the filtration system and take out the odor or the taste issues.
DOUG: Alright, well we’ll get the test done and go from there.
LESLIE: Thanks so much for stopping by The Money Pit.
