I have a problem with hydrogen sulfide in my raw water. It appears that the problem is exaserbated in the Geospring hot water. Through some research it appears that the magnesium anode in this unit is a catalyst for this problem. Please advise as to alternate anodes available for the Geospring.

How is jupiter atmosphere

The atmosphere of Jupiter is the largest planetary atmosphere in the Solar System. It is mostly made of molecular hydrogen and helium in roughly solar proportions; other chemical compounds are present only in small amounts and include methane, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and water. Although water is thought to reside deep in the atmosphere, its directly measured concentration is very low. The oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, and noble gas abundances in Jupiter's atmosphere exceed solar values by a factor of about three.[

Rotten egg smell

Hydrogen sulfide gas. Try pouring a quart (liter) of distilled white vinegar mixed with a quart (liter) of water down the drain. Let it stand for half an hour, then follow it down with several gallons of water.

If that doesn't clear it up, you may not have a trap - that's a health hazard, and you'll need to have one installed.

Does not remove smell from water

An in line filter will only remove hydrogen sulfide if you use a carbon filter. H2S will vary a great deal during the course of a year. If the carbon filter loads quickly (1 month or less) you may want to consider an iron / hydrogen sulfide filtration system before the water softener. Those that work with air work very well.

Our Maytag washer emit a rotten egg smell and the wet clothes also come out with this smell. What is causing this and how do we fix this issue?

Sounds like a sulfur-eating bacteria, you're smelling hydrogen sulfide. Are you on city water or do you have a well? Sulfur-eating bacteria can live in a well (as can iron-eating bacteria) and it might find a happy home in a washing machine too.

Since they live in an acidic environment (the hydrogen sulfide, dissolved in water, makes an acid) I would try a caustic first- bleach would be a good first bet.

If you have a well and the bacteria came from it then it'll come back. Consult with a local well drilling operation, they can tell you if you have bacteria in your well and how to deal with it in a locally acceptable fashion.

Our clothes are coming out of the washer with a rotten smell. I have tried Tied Washing Machine cleaner and the vinegar/soda mix...but no change.

Try running a cycle, at highest level, with hot water. When the tub is about ready to drain, connect the drain hose to a water hose, and let it drain through the water hose to outside. See if the water has a smell / any "floaties" that may indicate a mold / mildew growing inside the agitator. You can try to over fill (fill to highest level, then add water using a bucket) with water and add a large amount of bleach. Let it sit overnight, and run a few cycles to rinse out the bleach residue

Have you noticed a similar smell from the hot water when taking a shower / doing dishes / washing hands? You could have bacteria growing in your water heater. Shocking it (with granulized bleach - see owners manual) will help clear this up. If you are on a well, you may also be getting sulfur or Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) into your well water as well.

Just rented a home in the country the water smells like rotten eggs

Hydrogen Sulfide Gas can occur in wells, and gives the water a characteristic "rotten egg" taste or odor.

  • Install an activated carbon filter. This option is only effective for low hydrogen sulfide levels, The gas is trapped by the carbon filter is saturated.
  • Install an oxidizing filter, such as a "manganese greensand" filter. Manganese greensand filters are often used to treat iron problems in water. The device consists of manganese greensand media, which is sand coated with manganese dioxide. The hydrogen sulfide gas in the water is changed to tiny particles of sulfur as it passes through the filter. The filter must be periodically regenerated, using potassium permanganate, before the capacity of the greensand is exhausted.
  • Install an oxidation-filtration system. These systems utilize a chemical feed pump to inject an oxidizing chemical, such as chlorine, into the water supply line prior to a storage or mixing tank. When sufficient contact time is allowed, the oxidizing chemical changes the hydrogen sulfide to sulfur, which is then removed by a particulate filter, such as a manganese greensand filter.

    What is chlorgon water technology, and how would this technology be beneficial for my household?

    Shower without chlorine. Chlorine is used universally to purify water through the eliminating of bacteria and other microorganisms, but once this chemical is used throughout your home, it can negatively affect your family's personal appearance, comfort, and even long-term health. Our filtered shower heads, handles, and extensions - with patented Chlorgon Water Purification Technology -remove chlorine at a wider temperature range than other shower head systems. Other benefits include pH balancing, reducing the build-up of scale on your tiles and glass, full removal of rust water, dirt, and sediment from your water, and for those areas of the country such as the northeast, where homes access well water (water with a rotten egg odor), the hydrogen sulfide will be removed along with the smell.
