Smelly or Foul-Smelling Water?

Some unwelcome elements of a home’s water are hard to overlook.


Residents of Milwaukee County can notice reddish discoloration on fixtures – toilets, sinks, showers – indicates elevated iron content. A nasty aroma, like rotten eggs, points to beyond-acceptable sulfur content.


A single filter can solve both … and provide instant respite from these bothersome symptoms.


This filter system, often named an iron water filter or sulfur filter for well water, is added into a home’s plumbing between the pressure tank and water softener. Its operations make water far more inviting, and much less harmful.


The iron filter system uses two fiberglass tanks. The first tank oxygenates water to divide out impurities; the second introduces minerals to eliminate the impurities. Once finished, the treated water goes into the water softener.


Installing a filter creates an immediate transformation in home water quality. Water smells better. It doesn’t stain. Many Milwaukee County homeowners think, “Why didn’t we do this earlier?”


Are you prepared? If you need a new or replacement iron/sulfur water filter in Milwaukee County contact Kelly James Service. Its plumbing practitioners are specialists at diagnosing water problems, and delivering solutions to ensure the absolute best water quality.


A filter system should be serviced every two to three years to clean out iron from the tanks. Properly maintained, an iron filter or filter for sulfur water smell can work more than two decades.


A Milwaukee County home’s water can shift over time. Drilling a new well, for example, might draw from an underground water with different properties. If stains or smells show up later, a filter might be a smart investment.


Kelly James Service can test your water and recommend steps to make it better. We all use water – why not make it the best it can possibly be?
