Unpleasant Odors

Water with an unpleasant odor can be particularly upsetting. Who wants to wash dishes or clothing, let alone bathe in smelly water? An important factor in determining the correct solution for unpleasant odors is based on the odor itself. Is the odor foul smelling or does it smell like rotten eggs? These smells usually come from a lack of oxygen in a well, which in turn produces sulfide gas. It can also occur as a result of sulfur-containing chemical reactions in your groundwater. However, if you are experiencing these smells only when utilizing your hot water supply, it's possible that your water heater is to blame.
