Find out how to fix this problem, quick–with the help of your friendly Culligan Man
Often if your water smells like sulphur or rotten eggs, the reason is because your water has high Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) content.
H2S is a gas that is released from the earth and finds its way into groundwater. It’s especially common in well water located near shale, sandstone, coal, peat, or oil.
(Occasionally, a rotten-egg smell in your water could also be caused by a water heater or by sewage pollution in your water. If you’re on city water, the most likely explanation is your water heater.)
Negative Effects of H2S
In addition to potential health risks, having H2S in your water can cause all sorts of annoying problems. H2S in your water can:
- Cause coffee and tea to be discolored and taste funny
- Corrode metals (steel, copper, iron, brass), including silverware
- Cause foods cooked with water to taste “off”
- Create yellow or black stains in your bathroom and kitchen
How Do You Fix It?
At Culligan, you can find everything you need to get rid of H2S and that sulphur/rotten-egg smell from your water.
The first step we have to take is to test your water, so we can be sure of the real cause of the rotten-egg smell.
Fortunately, at Culligan we offer this service free. One of our water consultants will come to your home to test the water (you can’t send it away to a laboratory because H2S is a gas and could dissipate during transport) and let you know the source of your rotten-egg smell. You’re under no obligation whatsoever.

Dear Mr. Riker, My purpose in writing is to let you know that your professional Culligan team did an excellent job in helping us select the Gold Series Automatic Water Conditioner and getting it installed. Stephen Wilson was the Area Representative who took the time to test our water and explain the Culligan products available to satisfactorily condition our water. His prime interest was to get us to understand our alternatives so that we could correctly select the proper product. He did a complete and professional job in completing that process and in scheduling or installation. Wayne Markwith and Dominique Walls were the field service technicians that properly installed our conditioner. I was amazed that they did not have and re-do's during the process. This clearly indicated that they were properly trained. But what impressed me the most wast the pride that they took in their job and the respect that they had for the Culligan Product and Name. Stephen's, Wayne's and Dominique's performance and professionalism gave a real life meaning to Culligan's motto of Trust the Water Experts. Thank you for having them service our water conditioning needs.
