Destroying Hydrogen Sulfide Odors

Hello James,

Thanks for the time to discuss your water test results today, it was nice talking with you.  While the Total Dissolved Solids are quite high you could start with implementing the Chlorine components and then proceed with whole house Reverse Osmosis (RO) down the line.  Regardless the odors will need to be addressed as will protect the RO Membranes if that is chosen to use. 

As we discussed a chlorine residual would be quite beneficial in destroying the Hydrogen Sulfide odors currently in your well water.  This in combination with your existing Water Softener would assist in providing odor free, soft water to your home.

The Metering Pumps we recommend are all self-priming, peristaltic, and maintenance is quite simple to do.  These are much more reliable than a diaphragm pump which require constant adjustments along with replacement items. Our Contact tanks are also quite maintenance free as simply flush the drain at the bottom every couple of months in order to expel any sludge that may accumulate.

The following will show images, a brief description of each, warranty info, and product links for additional information.
