Having Smelly Water Stinks.
Fix it with an all-natural, affordable solution from North Durham EcoWater
There are typically two water contaminants that can cause your water to smell like sulphur or rotten eggs, one is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and the other is iron or sulphates.
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.
