Water Filtration Can Remove Sulfur from Your Water

Water FiltrationA good water filtration system can provide you with many benefits, not the least of which is that it can remove sulfur from your water. If you have ever noticed that the water in your home has a smell similar to rotten eggs, the culprit is most likely sulfur.

You might be wondering, how does sulfur get into my water supply? Groundwater can accumulate sulfur as it seeps through rocks containing sulfite ores. These ores are then oxidized and become sulfur that remains in the water unless it is removed by your local water company or a filter of some kind. Sulfur also can come from bacteria in the water, as well as pollution.

The best way to eliminate sulfur from your water is to have a RainSoft whole-house water filtration system installed at the water’s entry point at your home. By using a water filtration system to eliminate sulfur, homeowners find that they can also eliminate problems caused by this mineral, which include:

  • Clothes washed in water containing high amounts of sulfur can become stained
  • The bacteria that produce sulfur also leave behind a noticeable slime in sinks and plumbing
  • Sulfur stains fixtures such as sinks and toilets
  • Although sulfur is often found in food we eat, drinking large quantities of it in drinking water can have adverse health effects, such as gastrointestinal problems

Plus, if your home is already outfitted with a water conditioner, then a water filtration system has even more advantages. By filtering the water and removing certain additives before it enters the conditioner, you can lengthen the life of the conditioning system significantly.
