My water smells like rotten eggs or sewer. What should I do?

If all the water from the well and in the house smell, then the odor is most likely coming from the water coming into the well. The water is coming from a sulfur-type soil. If only the hot water in the home smells, then replacing the rod in the hot water tank may solve the problem. Most odors in water are gone before you can get a sample to the laboratory. In addition, Our test methods do not delineate types of odors. Our Odor test simply tells if there is an odor or not – and you already know you have an odor. If you smell it, you have it.
