Smelly Water

Smelly Water

As water makes its way from its source to your faucets, it can be exposed to a number of contaminants*. These can come from the miles of underground pipes that the water travels through or even the water source itself. No matter what your water has been exposed to, Culligan has the equipment and experience necessary to find a solution that’s perfect for your water. A few of the more common water odor problems are:

  • Rotten egg odor can be caused by hydrogen sulfide in the soil near your well
  • Musty, earthy or wood smell can be caused by dissolved solids
  • Chlorine smell can be caused by municipal additives
  • Detergent odor can water that foams can be due to seepage from septic tanks into your ground water well
  • Chemical smells and tastes can be due to high iron content or chemicals seeping into your water supply, such as industrial chemicals or pesticides

High Iron Content

If you have red or brown deposits in your sinks or drains then you most likely have a high concentration of iron in you water. An excessive level of iron is a common problem due to the geological make up of a region’s soil. This means Culligan has a wealth of experience in dealing with high iron content water in your region. Watch out for these signs, as they are common indicators of too much iron in your home’s water:
