Get Rid of Sulphur Odor in Kitchen

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Jerry in Nebraska is dealing with some poor water quality at home. Tell us what’s going on.

    JERRY: We built a new house couple of years ago and in the last four or five months we’ve developed a sulphur odor in our kitchen.

    TOM: Are you on city water or well water?

    JERRY: Well water.

    TOM: OK. When is the last time you had the water tested?

    JERRY: Three months ago right after this odor started showing up.

    TOM: And what did the test show?

    JERRY: That everything was normal.

    TOM: It might mean that the water is safe it just has a bad odor to it and in that case you may need to add a charcoal filter to the filtration system. Do you have any kind of filter system on it now at all?

    JERRY: It’s a Culligan filter with a 10-mitron filter but it basically just catches sand and rust particles.

    TOM: Right, doesn’t affect taste. I would call the Culligan guys; talk to them about the taste problem that you’re having, the odor problem; and find out if a charcoal filter might be in your future because I have a feeling that it is. And that will take that smell right out and I think you’ll be a lot happier with it.

    JERRY: OK, thank you.

    TOM: Jerry, thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
