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.
