Water odour can be caused by many different factors.


Sulfur  – A very common problem is the presence of Hydrogen Sulfide gas (H2S), which is formed when it exits the tap or faucet. This “egg” smell is bothersome and causes damage to water lines and fixtures.

Other sulfur odours can be due to biological growth(s) in the water or in hot water tanks and are more difficult to remove.
