Smelly or Foul-Smelling Water?

Some unappreciated qualities of a house's water are nearly impossible to ignore.


Residents of Waukesha County can notice reddish staining on fixtures – toilets, sinks, showers – suggests elevated iron level. A nasty smell, like rotten eggs, points to elevated sulfur content.


A single filter can solve both … and provide immediate respite from these annoying symptoms.


This filter system, usually labeled an iron water filter or sulfur filter for well water, gets installed into a home’s plumbing between the pressure tank and water softener. Its processes 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 employs minerals to remove the impurities. Once done, the treated water goes into the water softener.


Adding a filter creates an instant change in home water quality. Water smells better. It won’t stain. Many Waukesha County residents wonder, “Why didn’t we do this sooner?”


Are you ready? If you need a new or replacement iron/sulfur water filter in Waukesha County contact Kelly James Service. Its plumbing practitioners are experts at identifying water problems, and delivering solutions to create the absolute best water quality.


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


A Waukesha County home’s water can change over time. Drilling a new well, for example, might tap an underground water vein with different properties. If stains or smells appear afterward, a filter might be a smart investment.


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