does drip irrigation contaminates the water

hello
i use drip irrigation system and i noticed that the water that goes to the plants frome the emitters taste like plastic.
the tubing and the emitters are also exposed to the sun which i belive release more contaminates from tubing and emitters to the water.
i try to grow organicly in containers and avoid chemicals.and i think that ן irrigate unintentionally water that are full with contaminates.
couldnt find any data about it.
any solutions or insights ??
thanks
