Smelly Water and Rotten Egg Smell… What is it? And how to get rid of it!
Residents in South Central PA, particularly around York, Hanover, Gettysburg and Harrisburg have experienced it, smelled and often accepted it as a way of life… but it needn’t be that way.
Hydrogen sulfide gas or sulfur in water, as it is commonly referred to, usually smells like rotten eggs and can be found in underground aquifers throughout South Central PA. Aside from the dreadful odor, the dissolved gas can also produce cloudiness and your pipes to hammer and spit gas when you open your faucets. These gases can also be quite corrosive to plumbing systems, causing premature wear on valves, seats and washers often leaving unsightly greasy black residue.
For nearly three decades, NicMar Water has been dedicated to resolving the most challenging hydrogen sulfide / sulfur gas water problems throughout the greater York Springs, Hanover, Gettysburg and Harrisburg areas.

Using the Power of OZONE to eliminate Sulfur – Hydrogen Sulfide. Although that rotten egg odor is occasionally present in hot water, a problem that can be easily resolved by servicing your water heater, when present in cold water, an actual chemical test is required to determine the parts per million of sulfur gas so as to assess the type of water treatment necessary for its elimination.
In less severe cases a cartridge filter or backwashing carbon filter may solve the problem, however stronger concentrations of Hydrogen Sulfide may require oxidation with an oxidizing filter. In the instance of sulfur-reducing bacteria NicMar Water’s method of choice, in combating this challenging problem, is the Hellenbrand Storm which uses corona discharge ozone.
Why NicMar Water’s uses Ozone in York, Hanover, Gettysburg and Harrisburg to get rid of Sulfur in water.
NicMar Water’s line of Sulfur – Hydrogen Sulfide Removal Filters are considered the best in the industry. The Hellenbrand STORM™ is a low maintenance Hydrogen Sulfide removal system that uses the Natural Power of Ozone as an oxidizer to convert the bacteria (technically knows as sulfate reducing bacteria) which causes that rotten egg sulfur odor, into a harmless sulfur byproduct that is filtered out. For more information on Hellenbrand products. The STORM™ is an environmentally responsible and low maintenance Sulfur -Hydrogen Sulfide removal solution that reduces the presence of sulfur more effectively and safely than any other method in use today. The key advantages of corona discharge ozone: • Ozone eliminates the need for chemical feed pumps and the mixing often toxic chemicals like Chlorine, Hydrogen Peroxide or Potassium Permanganate • Ozone is much faster acting and a 1.5 times stronger oxidizer than chlorine • Ozone converts “rotten egg” odor into harmless sulfur products that are filtered out • Ozone is safe for septic systems

Energy Efficient 24-Volt Transformer Simplifies maintenance and reduces any electrical risks.
How Chlorine works in eliminating Sulfur/ Hydrogen Sulfide
Given enough time Sulfur does dissipate. The Stenner® Chemical Injection pump speeds up this natural process using Chlorine which is a powerful oxidizing agent that decomposes sulfur rapidly. Injected into the well water lines, via a Stenner® chemical feed pump before the pressure tank, it will not only remove sulfur odor, but kill all bacteria and oxidize iron and manganese. The newly introduced chlorine will flow through a mixing valve and travel into a well pressure tank. In the most severe cases, NicMar Water will use a 40 to 120 gallon retention tank. The actual size is determined by the amount of sulfur and water usage in the home. In the retention tank the chlorine has its chemical reaction with the sulfur rich water. After this step, the water flows through the ETF 2100 PF filter removing the sulfur (and rotten egg smell) eventually going through a softener resulting in sulfur free soft water being distributed throughout the entire house. Chemical feed systems are safe, and although our secondary choice, are among the most effective, versatile, and cost-efficient water treatment devices on the market. Depending on the chemical agent used, the same equipment can actually also treat bacteria, iron, manganese, low pH, and many other water problems.
