  • 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.


  • Today, certified well contractors offer a myriad of treatment options designed for families who receive water from an independent well. Along with filtration and distillation, ultraviolet water treatment technology is available that can effectively treat your entire water supply.  This point of entry system is specifically designed to treat drinking water and help prevent common bacterial contamination and is an excellent cost effective alternative to replacement of your entire system.

They are naturally occurring in the soil and are washed into drinking water from rain and surface water run-off that seeps through the ground. You do not have to live with contaminated water.
