Odor Testing

Nothing is more unpleasant than having to drink or bathe in smelly water. Adams Well Drilling has the expertise to identify the source of the odor and develop a foolproof plan for improving your water quality.

What's Behind the Smell?

Odor is caused by sulfur, hot water heaters, and bacteria. This includes sulfate-reducing or sulfur bacteria, as well as iron-reducing bacteria. As these bacteria grow, they can produce gases that give a strange smell to your water. Sometimes you may not notice any smell from the water for the first thirty seconds or so, but find the odor does not go away once it is present. This is because the water slowly releases hydrogen sulfide into the air, which causes the bad odor.

How We Help

We will carefully test your water and examine your system to determine the cause of the odor. Once we have assessed the situation, we will then advise you on next steps for improving your water quality and eliminating the smell.
