I've been drinking water from my landlord's alkaline water purification system direct. It has an auto rinse system every couple of litres, not sure how safe it is though.

I have a question. I know tap water in Shanghai usually has a certain 'smell'. Some call it muddy, and some say it's from exessive use of chlorine or something. But the water in our apartment (pudong, Jinqiao) smells like gasoline, or white spirit. We have had the waterfilter replaced, but it doesn't change a thing. The smell is the same for hot and cold water, and it smells worst in the morning.
Can you imagine taking a shower or washing your face in a haze of gasoline?
Does anyone know what it can be, and how it could be fixed? Right now I have send 2 samples (one to a company chosen by the landlord, and one to a company which I chose myself) to have the water thoroughly tested. Next week I'll get the results. I don't know if it is 'just smell' or if it is actually really unhealthy to take a 'gasoline shower'. Some say it's the pipes in the apartment. But what can they do about the pipes... change them all??
Would be gratefull for any usefull comment/advice!
