Water Smells Like Rotten Eggs

Do you have a rotten egg smell in your water? Does it smell up your house, make your clothes stink and make you gag when you take a shower? Can you drink it or cook with your water smelling that way?

It is very tough to live with and I’m sure the wife or husband is reminding you every day. It is more commonly found in well water than municipal water. Exposure to lower concentrations can result in eye irritation, a sore throat and cough, nausea, shortness of breath, and fluid in the lungs. Long-term, low-level exposure may result in fatigue, loss of appetite, headaches, irritability, poor memory, and dizziness. Chronic exposure to low-level H2S has been implicated in increased miscarriage and reproductive health issues.

What is causing the rotten egg smell in my water?

The human body uses water in all its organs, tissues, and cells for optimum body function. Since we lose water from different activities through our sweat, breathing, and digestion, rehydrating our body with fluids is essential.

Aside from hydration, we need clean water for all our bathing and cleaning activities inside and outside the house. But what if your water smells like a rotten egg?

The Causes of Rotten Egg Smell in the Water System

The smell of rotten egg in your water is a sign of the presence of anaerobic bacteria in your water system. With water heaters, the existence of anaerobic bacteria reacts with sulfur, magnesium, and aluminum sacrificial anodes, and produce hydrogen sulfide gas.

In cases of well-water smelling like rotten eggs, hydrogen sulfide gas can be created either by bacteria living in the well, or by groundwater contamination.

Safety Concerns Surrounding The Drinking of Smelly Water

While it’s safe to assume that anything that smells rotten is dangerous, according to the experts sulfur bacteria are not harmful to consume.

Unless the source of the gas is from sewage or pollution, there’s no need to panic. However, no one will drink from a foul-smelling water source. People will also think twice to take a shower when they know about the smelly issue.

Although sulfur bacteria are harmless, it is important to remove the gas from your water source. Sulfur water can turn metal items to a blackish color when exposed to the fluid on a regular basis. In addition, people with sulfur water face the constant challenges of washing clothes and keeping them clean.

Health Risks Associated with Hydrogen Sulfide Exposure

According to the studies conducted on hydrogen sulfide, there are no health effects found in human exposure to sulfur water. However, the presence of sulfur in your water may irritate the eyes, throat, and nose. In severe cases, sulfur water may cause difficulty in breathing for asthmatic residents.

How Hydrogen Sulfide is Produced in Water Heaters

The ideal environment for the conversion of sulfate to hydrogen sulfide gas is within a water heater. The warm environment creates a perfect habitat for the anaerobic bacteria. In addition, the warm environment encourages and sustains the reaction between sulfate in the water and the anode rod of the water heater. The anode rod in water heaters is made of magnesium metal that helps in the conversion of sulfate to hydrogen sulfide gas.

How Do I Fix the Rotten Egg Smell in My Water?

Finding the source of the hydrogen sulfide is key to eliminating the rotten egg smell. With the right solution, you can get rid of the bad odor in the water.

AquaOx’s RE “Rotten Egg” edition is an efficient water filtration system built specially for the removal of sulfur and iron from your water source. The product is a cost-effective filtration system which iodizes iron and sulfur while dissolving oxygen to the water. The media bed inside the system removes the iron and sulfur from the water to eliminate foul odor and taste.

Unlike some filtration system, the RE Edition does not require complicated maintenance to maintain its optimum performance. With a daily backwash, you can remove the iron accumulated in the media bed. The backwashing process regenerates the RE Edition filter, by removing the contaminants that collected on its surface.

This filter will last up to ten years or more between replacement, lowering ownership costs.

You don’t need special skills to install the AquaOx RE Edition. All you have to do is connect the main inlet to the main water line of the house. You then connect the line from the filter, into the house.

Lastly, attach the PVC line to the backwash outlet and plug the filtration system into a regular power outlet. The simple installation requires little to no plumbing skill.

Once installed, you can say goodbye to the nasty odor of sulfur in the water. Enjoy clean and clear water whenever you take a shower, bathe, drink and cook from your line. You can also wash your clothes without worries of stains from the water source.
