Smelly or Foul-Smelling Water?

Some uninvited elements of a home’s water are hard to miss.


Homeowners of Washington County can notice reddish blemishes on fixtures – toilets, sinks, showers – points to elevated iron content. A nose-turning aroma, like rotten eggs, indicates high sulfur content.


One filter can solve both … and offer immediate relief from these unmistakeable symptoms.


This filter system, usually named an iron water filter or sulfur filter for well water, goes into a home’s plumbing between the pressure tank and water softener. Its processes make water far more appealing, and much less problematic.


The iron filter system uses two fiberglass tanks. The first tank oxygenates water to separate out impurities; the second introduces minerals to remove the impurities. Once completed, the treated water moves into the water softener.


Installing a filter creates an immediate change in home water quality. Water smells better. It won’t stain. Many Washington County residents think, “Why didn’t we do this before?”


Are you ready? If you need a new or replacement iron/sulfur water filter in Washington County contact Kelly James Service. Its plumbing pros are masters at analyzing water problems, and providing solutions to ensure the absolute best water quality.


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


A Washington County home’s water can morph over time. Drilling a new well, for example, might draw from an underground water vein with different properties. If stains or smells show up afterward, a filter might be recommended.


Kelly James Service can check your water and suggest steps to make it better. We all require water – why not make it as good as it can possibly be?
