What's worse than rotten egg smell when you reach for a glass of water?
When your water has a bad odor or taste, it can be hard to ignore, especially when that smell is as noxious as that rotten egg smell.
This unpleasant smell is caused by the presence of hydrogen sulfide (H2s) in your water. It is not harmful to your health, but hydrogen sulfide can make your water corrosive, which means it can damage a home’s metal plumbing elements, like copper, iron or steel pipes. It can tarnish silverware, copper and brass utensils, as well as leave yellow or black stains on your kitchen and bathroom fixtures.
