Rotten egg smell (sulfur odor)
The sulfur odor or rotten egg smelling water that you smell is actually hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S). It is a colorless gas with the characteristic foul odor of rotten eggs. The gas is most often formed when organic material decays in the absence of oxygen, for example in swamps and sewers.
There are two ways to remove it from our water, through aeration or filtration. Aeration systems spray water into a ventilated storage tank. Since hydrogen sulfide is a gas, creating a fine mist or spray will separate the gas from the water. The hydrogen sulfide can then be eliminated as a gas through the vent holes in the top of the aerator.
Fortunately in Southwest Florida, we are one of the few areas in the country that can have an aerator installed outside on the side or back of your home. Aerators work well with removing hydrogen sulfide gas from your water.
The other way to remove the hydrogen sulfide gas is through filtration. We have a multi-media filtration system that also works very well in reducing the sulfur odor in your home.
The sulfur (H2S) level varies from well to well and for an accurately test, it should be done on site. Since hydrogen sulfide is a gas and is easily separated from the water, it will dissipate even in a sealed container and would not produce an accurate
We would be happy to come out to test your water and give you an accurate assessment while explain the options of sulfur removal for your particular situation.
