Bad Odors in Your Well Water
When you smell that rotten egg smell coming from your well water, this is caused by contamination from hydrogen sulfide. This hydrogen sulfide is not usually a health issue, however, it can certainly be off-putting and will deter you from using water in your home.
This hydrogen sulfide that can contaminate your well water is a colorless gas that exists naturally in groundwater. This usually comes from decaying plants or organic matter which seeps into your water supply. If it isn’t due to decaying organic matter you may have a magnesium rod that is corroding or sewage pollution could be leaking into your tank. If the bad smell is coming from sewage pollution this could be a legitimate health issue.
