If you have old pipe , such as galvanized, you need to repipe with copper or PEX. If you already have newer pipe you need to install a whole house water filtration system. I recommend a whole house filtration system on every house. Water municipalities do a great job of killing diseases and bacteria by injecting the water with chlorine, but they do not much else in the way of actually filtering the water to remove chemicals, turbidity, VOCs, or the chlorine that they put in the water. Get a water report from your water district. They are required to supply them and most can be found online. Frankly, i think the government standards set back in the 70's are way too low for water quality and i will never drink water from a tap unless it is filtered.
