Rotten Egg Smell in Hot Water
If you are experiencing a “rotten egg or sulfur” smell from your water, you’ll want to check to see if the smell is coming from running only your hot water vs. cold water. If the smell is only while running your hot water, you’ll want to check your anode rod in your hot water heater. Not only will an old, rusty anode rod create a smell, you may also notice an orange tint to your water. It’s a good idea to have your water heater inspected or serviced by a plumber if this is an issue.
Does Your Spring Water Really Come From a Spring?
Yes! Our water comes from a certified spring in Fairfield County, Ohio. The water is filtered and ozonated before transport. After it arrives at our supplier, it goes through additional filtering, carbon, and sediment down to one micron. The water is again ozonated before bottling.
In addition, each 5-gallon and 3-gallon water container goes through a disinfection process giving you the safest, cleanest drinking water possible.
