Stinky Water... Plz help!

Hi - our home has water that smells moldy. we have lived in our home for about 5 years now and its always been an issue... we first noitced the smell in out CLEAN clothes esp towels when using them to dry off from a shower or washing your face. the smell is so awful we cant use them. We have replaced our towels at least three times and even went as far as replacing the washer and dryer thinking that was the issue. My husband says it is not the hot water heater because the cold water smells too. we have noticed that it is worse in the warmer weather. can anyone tell us what it is and/or how to fix it???

We need more information from you. Things like:
- are you on city water or well water?
- what type of pipes do you have?
- do you have a whole house filter system?

OK, do that.

Also, go to your neighbors and ask them if they experience the same symptoms, if they are on city water like you.
