Having Smelly Water Stinks.

Fix it with an all-natural, affordable solution from Dominion Water and Well

There are typically two water contaminants that can cause your water to smell like sulfur or rotten eggs, one is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and the other is iron or sulfates.

H2S is a mineral 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. H2S is a dissolved gas that is released from the earth and finds its way into the groundwater. It’s especially common in well water located in Northern Virginia, Richmond.

Occasionally, a rotten-egg smell in your water could also be associated with your water heater or sewage pollution in your water. If you’re on city water here in the Northern Virginia, Richmond area and have been gone for a while, the water could have gotten stagnant in your water lines or water heater. Running your water (both hot and cold) to flush your lines will sometimes improve this situation, some may need to have the lines flushed with chlorine to remove bacteria.

The most important thing to note is that it is ALWAYS worthwhile to get your water tested as H2S poses a serious potential health risk including nausea, vomiting, and other serious health effects.

So how do you fix it?

Depending on the root cause of the issue there are affordable options available through Dominion Water and Well. We offer free water testing to determine the source of the smell. There’s no obligation to purchase equipment from us as our goal is to provide valuable information to help you make the best decision for your home and family.

Ryan and his team did the rough-in for my new primary bath and I'm... thrilled. Ryan showed up when he said he would, and sent the quote as promised. His team was respectful of my house. Ryan answered my questions in detail and kept me informed throughout the work.read more

Needed a new hot water tank. Contacted my usual plumber who came out... relatively quickly, but then quoted me a ridiculous price and took a long time to schedule replacement. Called Dominion Water and Well because I was told I needed a water softener (have well water). Ryan came out right away. We started talking about the water heater and it dawned on me that I should use one company to take care of the issues at one time. The price he quoted was fair and he did the job himself. Ryan is the first plumber I truly trust - professional, humble, fair. Talked to him about placing a water filter for the kitchen sink. He took care of it and I am so happy with the outcome. Live in Northern Virginia. Ryan wants more work in the area.He is the person I will call with any plumbing or well needs in the future.read more

Fantastic service! They tested my well and didn't try and sell me... anything more than I needed. In the end, I got a UV light and a Reverse Osmosis filter set. They said my water was within good ranges for softness and Ph, so they didn't recommend anything further. My bacteria problems are solved and I have super pure water for drinking and ice as they hooked up my refrigerator to the Reverse Osmosis setup. Price was more than reasonable and they had it all done in just a couple of hours.read more
