Smelly Water

Does your water smell like rotten eggs or sulfur gas?

Rural well water that is smelly could have hydrogen sulfide or sulfate reducing bacteria in it. Pro-Water Conditioning can provide a system for you that will completely eliminate these issues by installing a constant chlorination or hydrogen peroxide injection system. It would also alleviate any concern of Coliforms or E. coli if present in your domestic water, and in most cases eliminate the need to shock chlorinate your water well. In our experience we prefer treating water above ground (injection systems) which eliminate the chance of household plumbing corrosion caused from shock chlorination.

Does your water smell like chlorine or organic odor?

If you use municipal water sources and you notice a strong smell of chlorine in your tap water, it’s likely because spring run-off season has arrived. When the weather warms up and the snow melts, decomposing grass and leaves, manure from farmers’ fields and loose soil wash into the water. That means the municipality adjusts its water treatment which can cause a distinct chlorine or organic odor in your tap water. Studies show that chlorine is a health hazard but there are easy methods to remove it. Pro-Water Conditioning can either install a premium in-line carbon filter for approximately $400 ($90 filter need replaced annually), or a self-cleaning carbon filter systems that last years with no maintenance can be installed for approximately $2000. We also sell shower heads that remove chlorine to give you a clean safe shower.

For rural residents that are experiencing organic odors, color and turbidity, we install chemical free self-cleaning multi-media filters (the filter is composed of a custom media mix that removes odor, iron and other impurities). Call us for details.
