Have you ever thought you smelled rotten egg while running your water? Unfortunately this can be a common issue in many homes and businesses. Water that contains high levels of hydrogen sulfide gas has a very distinctive and unpleasant odour. It can affect everything from your food preparation to, more significantly, your health. Nausea and other such intestinal issues have been known to arise as a result of too much sulfur in the drinking water.
Throughout the years, we have been helping both residential and commercial owners solve their water odour problems with comprehensive odour removal systems. Extremely easy to control and manage, these systems effectively stem the odour and restore the purity of your water.
Manganese Dioxide-based Odour Removal system:
This type of system helps oxidize the gas, thereby allowing the sulfur particles to remain trapped. It can also be used to remove iron and other unwelcome particles.
Perhaps the most popular odour removal system is an activated carbon system. The offending hydrogen sulfide gas becomes trapped in the pores within the carbon. This is ideal for lower levels of sulfuric gas.
This is where we add a small amount of chlorine to the water supply to mask the smell caused. This is the least preferred method because of the addition of Chlorine which gives the water an unpleasant taste.
