Way more information is going to be needed to even come close what could be going on or what might be happening with your system.

water softener


Is it both the hot and cold?
What's it smell like?
Are you sure it's working?
Have you had the water tested?
Is this a new house to you?

Well or city water?
What kind of treatment is in place?
could the system be bypassed and the water tested to see if the smell and taste are there in the untreated water?

Bitter taste as in?
Smell as in?
