Get a filter...But if you have the money go bottled water. The placebo of bottled water does wonders for me lol. I would recommend Nestle . They have the highest water grade rating that I've seen compared to others on the market.

Use a brita filter pitcher. I've used them for years. I drink a ton of water and don't want to blow the money on bottled water, as well as being environmentally friendly by not wasting all the plastic. Even if you recycle it, still better to not use it in the first place.

Why dont you identify what state/county/city or whatever you are in and then someone can either look up info about your watertable. or contact the EPA or someone smaller in your town who does water quality stuff. Dont just throw out this random and unhelpful info expecting serious responses to remedy your issue (other than a brita).

Is the water brown and warm too? You are probably drinking a nice cup of hot cocoa with whipped cream on top.

What's it smell like? You better get your nose right in that water to smell it to. Just smelling the surface won't give us enough information.

called up the water company and they go it might be some sort of calicum build up what happens when it gets cold like this .. could also be air in the pipes or it could even be a build up of Chlorine...but i think if it was the latter i would smell it....

Was it semen? Did you taste it?

Seriously though have you seen your cat lately? I had the same thing happen and it turns out my cat was stuck in the faucet. I got lucky that time!

actually a chlorine smell comes from having too little cl2 in the water, not too much.

air in the lines could cause white/milky looking water. but if it is air it will clear up if you let the glass sit for a few minutes.

calcium is typically white specks in the water.

if it's an oily/slimy residue check any filters/purifiers you have installed, they may need cleaned/replaced.

calling up your water company and ask them to send someone out to test your water would be your best bet to figure out what it is.

thanks for the help.. werid thing we dont have any fliters/purifiers its just coming right out of the tap... give you an idea what it looks like....

Get a pan.
Pour a little oil in the pan and then fill it with water.... that wavie lines in the water is what im getting out of the tap.

it looks like cooking oil or something floating on the water..

they also told me to bump up my hot water heater up to 180 they said it could have something to do with the hot water heater even though im using cold water... this weekend im going to go over to my neighbors house and see if they have the same problem

If it's brown, drink it down. If it's black, send it back.
