Sulfur smell in your well water? Rotten egg smell? Smelly water can be caused by having sulfur in water wells. Below are the most common ways to size a sulfur filter or remove sulfur smells from your private well water at you home or business.


Injecting chlorine directly into water line (no retention) to rid yourself of that rotten egg smell (aka sulfur smell):

If all you want to do is get rid of that awful rotten egg smell. These chlorine feed sulfur filters seem to be a method that is growing in popularity for well water sulfur water treatment and filtration. They don't really 'Clean" the water. They just neutralize the sulfur smell. Small amounts of Chlorine are injected directly into the well water line to kill sulfur in water smells. Much less chlorine is used than with the other heavy chlorination methods. When all you want to do is kill the sulfur smell (sometimes misspelled as sulphur smell or sulphur water smell) and you have no other issues such as iron or manganese in your water. This is a popular solution. You simply mix a small amount of chlorine (like ordinary household bleach) with water in a 16 gallon tank. Then it is injected directly into the water line. The bleach and the sulfur cancel each other out so that you don't smell either one. Of course less is accomplished with the water than if you actually filter the water. This is NOT an effective method of treatment for iron, manganese or other issue where a backwashing filter is needed. If you have iron, sulfur, manganese etc. The the most popular water filter is the Terminox®.(more information at our blog: Common causes and solutions to smelly water) or other applications that may also require retention time (where the water is in contact with the chlorine for 20-30 minutes in a holding or retention tank. Or, using the well as a holding tank for retention time). But if all you want to accomplish is to remove the sulfur smell, this is the way to go. And we find Clorox to work just fine.

Before choosing any filtration system or sulfur filters to remove sulfur or the "rotten egg odor" from your water, you should have some basic testing done. The minimum you should test for is iron, hardness and pH levels. Knowing these levels will help determine what type of water treatment will work best for you. If it is just the bad odor that concerns you, a chlorine injection system will work well. But, if you also have iron or manganese, you would be better advised to use our Terminox™ I.S.M. Sulfur Filter that removes iron, sulfur, manganese, dirt, turbidity, taste and odor. Whatever your water filtration needs, we have the solution for you here at
