Having Smelly Water Stinks.
Fix it with an all-natural, affordable solution from Clean Water of Virginia
There are typically two water contaminants that can cause your water to smell like sulfur or rotten eggs, one is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and the other is iron or sulfates.
H2S is a mineral that is released from the earth and finds its way into groundwater. It’s especially common in well water located near shale, sandstone, coal, peat, or oil.
Occasionally, a rotten-egg smell in your water could also be caused by a water heater or by sewage pollution in your water. If you’re on city water, the most likely explanation is your water heater.
The most important thing to note is that it is ALWAYS worthwhile to get your water tested as H2S poses a serious potential health risk including nausea, vomiting, and other serious health effects.
So how do you fix it?
Depending on the root cause of the issue there are affordable options available through Clean Water of Virginia. We offer free water testing to determine the source of the smell. There’s no obligation to purchase equipment from us as our goal is to provide valuable information help you make the best decision for your home and family.

Day one we could smell, see and taste a difference. Thank you.Todd Lewis00:08 19 Mar 23We switched to Clean Water several years ago after dealing with a competitor of theirs for years. One of the best decisions we ever made! They’ve... been great from the first initial consultation to our most recent service call a few days ago. They don’t try to up sell you (con) into buying something you don’t need like the previous company did! The equipment they sell does exactly what they say it will do. We have the iron removal system plus a water softener. Never had mechanical issues like we did previously and the water tastes great! Couldn’t be happier. I won’t mention the name of that company but BOY was that WATER expensive! I highly recommend Clean Water!read moreRich Miller14:17 17 Mar 23Quick and efficient.margaret carlson16:32 16 Mar 23Very professional and timely.Pamela Mann15:23 27 Feb 23I called Travis just before 11:30 on Thursday morning regarding an issue with my water softener that was over 25 years old. He said he could be at my... house by noon that day to take a look at it! After he looked at it he told me what parts needed repaired but with the age of my old softener I opted to have a new one installed with no sales pressure whatsoever from Travis. By the time I got home at 4:30 that afternoon, my brand new water softener had already been installed and my old softener removed! You just can’t get any better service than that!read more
