We recently had a leak under our slab foundation and ended up going with rerouting the plumbing through our attic. After it was done, we have noticed that there is now a distinct odor (of the PEX pipes) from the water in our home (That wasn't there before). Will this go away eventually?
Also, we are not in a freeze zone by any means (South Carolina). But the new water lines in the attic are on top of the insulation and we have noticed that the cold water is also warmer than usual. Would insulating the cold water lines help with this? Should I worry about the new lines degenerating over time?
Thanks in advance.
