Odd Taste, Smell and Tongue Sensation After Filter Change
We have had a RO water filter for about 2 years. We change the pre and post filters every 6 months routinely.
We don't do it ourselves; we have the guy we bought it from change them. He changed them today and now the water has a bad taste and smell and makes my tongue feel funny.
I think the smell and taste are somewhat like sulphur. The tongue sensation is hard to describe. Kind of a metallic sensation but not a metallic taste if that makes any sense. Or maybe like there is a coating on my tongue.
The water tasted and smelled fine before the filter change and we never had any wierd tongue sensations when drinking it before. We change the filters routinely every 6 months.
The guy ran the water for awhile after he changed the filters. I ran it again for quite some time, too. Still has the smell, taste and tongue sensation.
Could the filters have been installed upside down or be defective?
