My towns tap water tastes like mold; it's not just my house its most of the town. It has been going on at least two weeks. I finally bought bottled water for myself and DD since we drink the most water of the family. 

DH doesn't seem grossed out by the mold taste and says I'm being a baby. That might as well get over it or stop drinking water. 

Luckily my work uses filtered web water that isn't the towns normal tap water so I can drink all I like at work with no mold. I usually only use the bottled stuff at home with DD,it's the kind of water you can by in gallon jugs of 15 gallon jugs out of the filtration machine in stores.  

Would you be grossed out?

Update 

 The city is aware of the issue and has corrected it but it will take two weeks or more before the mold taste goes away. They had mold growing in the wage source aka the river which the filters wasnt catching. Glad I got a faucet filter now.. 

Second update 

the taste still remains after two weeks of being "fixed"

third update

the water still tastes funny even after the weather has cooled down, so I still filter.

Yes. I've actually considered it.myself. I'm very picky about my water and lately its been tasting stale to me. So I drink a cup of tea per day and most days that's it :/

Ever heard of Walkerton?

About 10 yrs ago in my Province the water was contaminated and an entire town got sick.  People died.

I wouldn't mess with it.

I don't drink tap water from ANYWHERE.

If it's not spring water, I won't touch it.

I've tasted mold before, it also smells moldy..at first I thought it might be just our pipes. It's not its at least half the town.

last summer we had a full "NO" water use of the town water because of E. coli at high levels.

Our tap water comes with floating black specs, and some gross after taste. I refuse to drink it.
