    Here is a puzzler, In the highest point in the house is a bathroom off the main bedroom.
    In the morning when I get up the water tastes moldy out of the cold spigot.
    If I taste out of the hot water spigot , it taste like it is coming out of a garden hose.

    Any ideas ?
    Please keep it clean!

    These are copper pipes.

    Thanks ,
    Chuck

    It is possible that your anode rod could be going bad in your water heater
    that is a stab in the dark guess, [ it should smell like rotten eggs/sulfur]
    I really have no idea

    Try changing the supply lines, maybe the rubber/plastic liners in them are leaching into the water
