Your Place: Water Smell Like Rotten Eggs?

By Alan J. Heavens

If the smell comes on strong when either the hot or cold faucets are first turned on, but diminishes after a little while, you probably have sulfur bacteria in the well or distribution system.

If the smell is strong when you first turn the faucets on and doesn’t go away, there’s probably hydrogen sulfide gas in the groundwater.

While I’m a fan of do-it-yourself, I limit what I do to things that are relatively routine or provide a great deal of satisfaction, such as building a coffee table or a bookcase or painting the dining room or the exterior of the house.

I leave the important stuff to professionals, and you should, too.

It’s worth the money to get it done properly and quickly, rather than try to do it yourself and end up having to spend even more to extricate yourself from a situation you have made much worse.

The rotten-eggs smell has an obvious source. Your plumber, experienced with Shore houses, will find it.
