Hi Maybe someone can help me solve this problem. I installed a whole house water filter under the kichen sink for cold water use only at that location. I installed a carbon wrapped filter to eliminate the chlorine taste, now my water taste like medicine, more like benezene (smells)I have city water. Has anyone ever heard of this happening before? oh btw everyone who tries to drink it notices it right away also. I hate to think i have to remove the filter. But we can not drink it. Thanks for any help. Sharona

As a test, I suggest you switch the filter element to a different type, for example a paper filter. See if the water still has that taste. If so, and that's the only water in the house that tastes like that, then the problem must be with the new hardware or the installation. If the taste goes back to normal, then obviously, it's the filter element.
Did the installer use any pipe thread compound or such stuff that could taste bad? Teflon tape can be used and it has no taste.

I suspect a new filter will help. You might also want to run the container through the dishwasher or clean it with some vinegar.
