WATER CONTAMINATION

For over 50 years Skillings and Sons has been helping families enjoy the cleanest water possible, free of contaminants like lead and chlorine. We can help you with hard water and smelly, discolored brown or yellow water.

  • Water quality has a tremendous effect on your families quality of life. The rotten egg smell and taste in your home water supply is caused by the presence of hydrogen sulfide. (H2S) It is not harmful to your health but it can make your water corrosive, meaning it will damage your home plumbing system and appliances and can cause lead contamination. It can tarnish silverware, copper and brass utensils, leave yellow or black stains on your kitchen and bathroom fixtures, and it’s generally unpleasant.


  • Do you have difficulties with the water quality in your home? Does your tap water taste strange, or have a bad odor? Some of your household fixtures may have blue and green or brown and black staining or orange and brown staining in your laundry. Some homes deal with a rotten-egg smell from water sources, or sediment and calcium build up on faucets and fixtures. Water treatment is the solution to water quality problems.


  • Homeowners who use a significant amount of water outdoors, such as caring for a large garden or watering animals, often benefit from installing an irrigation well.
