Does Your Water Stink?

If you have a rotten egg smell in your sink, it may be that there are high levels of sulphur in your ground water. A lack of oxygen can cause sulphur to create Hydrogen Sulphide gas, which causes that rotten egg smell and taste. That foul smell can sometimes become so strong that your laundry will actually take on the scent permanently.

Science shows that there are no ill effects from drinking water high in Hydrogen Sulphide, but the smell and taste are very unappealing. Also, high Hydrogen Sulphide levels can adversely affect your plumbing and fixtures, causing staining on your sinks, tubs and showers.
