Another common problem with drinking water is a rotten egg smell. Softening can make smelly water much worse.This is dissolved hydrogen sulfide, it’s more common name is “sulfur”. Hydrogen sulfides can enter into the water system through wells or cisterns from decaying and decomposing plant material. Below are a few of the problems common to high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide:
Rotten egg smell
Bitter/ foul taste
Rotten egg smell on the
hot side only.
High concentrations of
sulfides can cause similar problems
to that of high iron
Black stain on plumbing
Slime or residue in
pipes, fouling appliances and fixtures.
High hydrogen sulfides
can be corrosive to metals. If you
have copper water piping
or cast iron waste piping in your house this is bad.
Hydrogen sulfide can
foul the resin bed in a common ionic
exchange water softener.
