Why Does Hot Water Smell Like Oil?

If your hot water smells like oil, it is possible that the water supply or plumbing has been contaminated with gasoline, oil or bacteria. This can be a health risk. In rarer cases, you may notice an oil smell in a new water heater caused by a chemical reaction between the water and the tank components. This should disappear in a few weeks.
