Does your NH Well Water Smell?

Suffering with Sulfur in Your New Hampshire Water Systems?

We’ve got you covered! If your well water smells like rotten eggs, your well may be among the estimated 5-10 percent of New Hampshire systems that contain objectionable levels of hydrogen sulfide. Though not hazardous to health from either ingestion or washing, the certainly unpleasant stench may make it difficult to stomach drinking water or even to take a shower or wash dishes.

Most commonly found in bedrock wells, hydrogen sulfide can, however, cause other issues. Over time, buildup of the chemical may speed up wear and tear in pipes, pumps, and fixtures.

Hydrogen sulfide is typically formed as a byproduct of organic material decomposition, or by chemical reaction of soil and bedrock minerals that contain sulfur, a non-metallic chemical element that often also gives off a foul odor of rotten eggs. Hydrogen sulfide is only one of many byproducts that may be produced as a result of these chemical reactions, so a thorough water test is often recommended if any foul odor or taste is present in your water.

Removing the sulfur smell from your water can be tricky, but there are several options available, including aeration, oxidation, and adsorption. Which process is right for you? It’s best to let the experts decide.
