What is Causing My Smelly Water?

What is Causing My Smelly Water?

And How Do I Fix It?

Rotten egg smell in your water is usually one of two culprits: Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) or Sulfates.

H2S is a mineral released from the earth that finds its way into groundwater.

Sulfates are sulfur-containing compounds found in nature that bacteria can turn into H2S.

H2S in gas form is dangerous, however, when dissolved in water it is less so, but it still poses health risks. 

So how does H2S get in your water? It is often there naturally. If you are on city water, an attempt has been made to reduce it to “not unhealthy” levels. 

If you are on well water, it’s especially common in wells located near shale, sandstone, coal, peat, or oil, like those in many areas of the State.

Occasionally, a rotten egg smell in your water could also be associated with sewage contamination or bacteria in your water heater.

The most important thing to note is that it is ALWAYS worthwhile to get your water tested if you have smelly water. 

Protect appliances, fixtures, and clothing from corrosion & staining, and eliminate the rotten-egg odor caused by hydrogen sulfide gas in your water today!

So how do you fix water that smells like sulfur?

Smelly Water Solutions

The first step is to figure out what is actually causing the smell. That usually involves a water test.

Next, once you know the cause, then you can move on to removing the contaminants, which, with H2S, isn’t usually as simple as adding in a filter.

This is where it becomes useful to have professional help. For Texas homeowners, Elder's Pure Water will do Free water testing to determine the source of the smell.

With those test results, we can tell you exactly what you’ll need to fix the problem. We have plenty of experience with the local water, and we know what works.

After that, there’s no obligation to purchase equipment from us. Our goal is to provide you with the information you need to make the best decision for your family.

We've been using Elders for all of our water filtration & purification needs. They always do a great job. Today Randall & Grayson came out to replace filters in our inside reverse osmosis filtration system. They were very professional, very... friendly & had the job finished quickly. They gave us some options for an add on faucet for drinking water which would be separate from our regular faucet. It would give increased flow back to the main faucet. We hadn't thought about that. Good information. Also it's in the teens with windchills even lower. They came out and were even a few minutes early. Bravo. I would highly recommend them for all your water needs.read more

I recently had John and his team with Elder's Pure Water come out to my home to test our water and give us estimates on water softeners and Reverse Osmosis water purifier to get bottle quality water at our sink. John tested our water and gave us... very fair pricing options up front. Chase arrived for our install right on time and had our RO system installed in less than an hour!

I am a realtor and my clients were closing on their home in Aledo in five days and their lender told us we needed a well water test. When I told KYLE @elder about our needs and how quickly we needed the results, he couldn’t guarantee that we would... get it back in time. Not only did they get it back in time for us to close, they got it back two days before closing. They were great. I highly recommend them if you need a well, water test or any other serviceread more

I had an issue with my AO Smith water softener and I called Elder’s. They came out the next morning and worked on it. Long story short, I ended up buying a whole new system with a breaker because we have a lot of iron. Joey was super kind and... helpful. The very next morning, Chase showed up with my new system and installed it within a couple hours. This system made a world of difference. Elder’s Joey and Chad were both professional and very knowledgeable about the water softener. Would definitely use them for any future maintenance or work. Highly recommend Elder’s.read more

I contacted elders pure water a few times for different quotes, which they quickly gave over the phone. This was the only company willing to talk prices without coming out first, and I really appreciated that. The install tech showed up exactly on... time to install a new softener/ro filter for our house, and did an excellent job. Including a trip to home Depot for a fitting, a bag of salt, and an extension cord for my new softener, the install took about 3 hours which I thought was incredibly fast.Really appreciated the great service and very fair pricing. I would certainly recommend and use this company on the future. Thank you!read more

What causes sulfur smell in well water?

A sulfur smell in well water is caused by 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.
