Chlorine bleach is used to disinfect water and keep water away from bacteria and viruses from water supply to residential blocks. While the side effect of it is the annoyed smell.

Another bad odor smells like “rotten egg” come into being with Hydrogen Sulfide gas. A disgusting smell worse than chlorine bleach occur in private wells. Some other reasons bring it to your drinking water have decay, chemical reactions with soils, existed sulfur bacteria in ground water or other plumbing systems. In order to get ride of this rotten egg smell, whole house water filter system is a pretty good choice for you.

Earthy, Musty, Grassy or Fishy Odor
From the words you may consider these odors related with ground and something about it, you are right. Two things make drinking water with those odors. One is decaying organic matters in the drain and another is well water pollution from ground issues. Since this kind of odors usually occur in well water, you could fill a glass of tap water and walk around by swirling the water inside the glass few times meanwhile. If the water in the glass does have any odors, it is the problems in drain. Cleaning, disinfecting and flushing are enough to remove odors.
