If you live in a rural area or would rather receive your water from a private source, wells are a great way to get water to your home. However, well water from underground reservoirs can pose problems such as stains, bad tastes, and unpleasant smells if left untreated. If your well water is giving off a sulfurous odor, here’s what you can do to treat it.
What Causes Sulfur Odors in Wells?
The first step in treating a smell that’s coming from your well water is identifying the smell. To most people, sulfur smells like rotten eggs. While the smell can make you gag, most often, sulfur odors are nothing to worry about. If you have a sulfuric, rotten-egg smell coming from your well water, chances are it’s just a result of excess hydrogen sulfide gas. Such gases don’t usually signal water contamination or affect the actual sanitary quality of your drinking water. However, it’s important to have the problem checked out by professionals in the rare instance that a sulfurous odor emitting from your well water could be the result of something worse, such as sewage seepage.
Treating Sulfur Odors in Wells
The good news about sulfur odors in your well water is that there are ways to treat them. In some cases, getting rid of the sulfur smell in your water is as simple as sanitizing the well itself. This will remove sulfur bacteria that may be causing the smell in your water.
Sometimes, you might need to treat the groundwater that your well is pumping to remove the sulfur odor. There are different types of filters you can install that help remove the gases from your water and reduce the smells that come from them.
