Sulphur in Water

Sulphur in Water

Sulphurous water generally refers to water with dissolved hydrogen sulphide content or the presence of sulphur bacteria. This particular problem water most often affects homes or businesses using well water, those in areas where the water supply could be easily compromised, or areas that may be poorly or irregularly treated and monitored. If sulphurous water is localized, it may also be a sign of a contaminated water heater.

Problems with sulphurous water

While hydrogen sulphide content and sulphur bacteria in water is not inherently dangerous, few would argue it’s pleasant. Sulphur in your water can also create slime that results in the growth of other bacteria, like iron bacteria, in water. Presence of these bacteria can lead to problems with plumbing and appliances, eventually corroding pipes and fixtures.

Identifying sulphur in water

Look for these signs around your home that can indicate some level of sulphur bacteria or hydrogen sulphide in your water:

  • Unpleasant rotten-egg smell.
  • Odour that’s worse or more obvious from hot water sources.
  • Unpleasant taste.

Varying levels of sulphur can produce different degrees of odour and taste. If you have any questions about sulphur levels in your water, contact your local Culligan Man for a free basic water test.

Treating water with sulphur content

While there are chemical treatments available for isolated sulphur contamination, the most common and effective way to address this problem in your home is with a water filter.

Most water filters work by passing contaminated water through multiple layers of media, like carbon filters and our unique media filters that trap hydrogen sulphide and other offensive chemicals. Each media layer is targeted toward a particular size or specific particle of dissolved substance, so what remains is water that’s cleaner, better tasting, and easier on your home.
