Good Water Smells Like Sulfur

I just recently moved into a new house and while everything is pretty much awesome, I was shocked by the fact that our water was awful. Apparently we live right by one of the water stations which uses a lot of sulfur to filter out the water – in turn it makes our water taste and smell like sulfur, too! Gross! I started Googling ‘what is the best water filter for at home’ and found myself overwhelmed by the sheer number of water filters that are available. I had no idea there could be so many different brands or devices that all pretty much do the exact same thing.

My problem was that no matter the kind of filter that I would put on the tap or on the shower head, it simply couldn’t do anything about the smell of sulfur. It was driving me nuts! I actually had to go an extra step and find a filter that could be installed on the main water line of the house which turned out to be a huge issue because of the work that would be necessary to install it. I had to get a permit from both the water company and the local government in order to have the digging done.

Not to mention, I had to pay for the digging! Argh! It was a very frustrating experience. It’s not that I’m not grateful for having clean water – it’s great that my water is probably some of the cleanest in the state but goodness, taking a shower smelling like sulfur is not an enjoyable experience on its own. Still, I think it’s been well worth the extra cost to have my shower and water smelling good even if the filter was absurdly expensive at the end of the day.
