Odors in well water are commonly caused by iron and sulfur bacteria. These bacteria thrive on iron and sulfur and create sludgy, foul-smelling waste byproducts like methane and hydrogen sulfide gas.

Chlorination is the most common method of eliminating these bacteria, even in large-scale operations like municipal treatment centers. Using a Stenner metering pump will allow you to control the amount of chlorine injected into your water so that there are no lingering chlorine tastes or odors, however, installing a carbon filter after your chlorinator is recommended to remove iron and sulfur particles oxidized by the chlorine.

While chlorination is the more effective method of treating odors since it addresses the problem at its root, aeration systems may be preferable for buyers who would rather not use chemicals to treat their water, or for water that is only mildly affected by bacteria and odors.
