Determining where the odor in water is located is key to determining the problem.
Does the odor occurs in all the water faucets? The problem is usually in the main water supply.
Does it occurs only in certain faucets? The problems is likely in the fixtures or pipes supplying those fixtures.
Does the problem goes away after running the water for a few minutes? The problem is somewhere in the household plumbing system.
Is the odor persistent? The problem could be the water source or combination of both the water sources and the plumbing system.
Is the odor is only in the hot water? Then problem in most likely the water source and the hot water heater.
