Sulfur Smelly Water is Nasty!
Does you water smell like rotten eggs? Sulfur smelly water treatments from Fehl Safe Water Treatment eliminate the rotten egg smell in your well water. This is one of the most common problems faced by well systems. This occurs as bacteria found in ground water reacts with other minerals in the water creating that awful rotten egg smell. Often the condition is worse when well water comes in contact with the magnesium anodes in your hot water heater that creates hydrogen sulfide gas.
The experts at Fehl Safe Water Treatment have years of experience in helping well owners eliminate sulfur smelly water in their well water. Solving the problem of sulfur smelly water starts with determining the source of the problem. This is done through testing the well water and doing a thorough mineral analysis. Only then can the correct filtration system be recommended.
Sulfur Smelly Water Treatments Eliminate Hydrogen Sulfide in Well Water
- One of the best ways to eliminate hydrogen sulfide or sulfur smelly water in your well water, is through Water Aeration. Water aeration involves increasing the amount of oxygen in a water system and is very effective in eliminating bacteria from water. Sulfur aeration systems utilize a component called a hydrocharger. The hydrocharger draws air into the water line as it moves to a holding tank. The holding tank has a mixing tank with an air vent on top. This air vent releases the air produced by the water aeration system and disperses the hydrogen sulfide gas, removing the sulfur smelly water odor. As long as your water doesn’t have iron or manganese issues this will solve the problem. When those minerals exist, we suggest utilizing a manganese oxide aeration system. The main reason for this is using a system designed to deal with hydrogen sulfide when iron is present will turn your water a bright red. Having your water tested by the experts at Fehl Safe Water Treatment will eliminate this costly mistake.
- Sulfur Block Systems are another proven and simple way to eliminate sulfur smelly well water. Less complicated than a water aeration system, sulfur block systems don’t require chemicals or salt to operate. This is a single tank system that takes up less space than a conventional water aeration system that includes a tank and aerator. Using a blend of medias sulfur block systems remove sulfur, hydrogen sulfide gases, iron, manganese and other heavy metals as well as bacteria, all of which can negatively affect the taste and smell of your well water.
