“Rotten Egg” Smell: This is another very common complaint of homeowners in Michigan. This is caused by the presence of hydrogen sulfide in your water. This is a more serious issue, as it will cause extensive damage to your plumbing system and if left untreated should be considered unsafe to drink.
Metallic Taste: As the name implies, this odor or taste is caused by excess metals, such as copper, iron and zinc. These metals are extremely common in groundwater and can cause some of the same hard water issues described above. A water softener is the right choice for this common water problem.
