Does your Orlando Water Smell Bad?
If you live in Orlando or any of the cities like Sanford , Lake Mary , Debary ,Deland , …etc, you have probably experienced a bad smell in the water pumped to your house. This is a strong, pungent smell, which can be very unpleasant.
As much as it rains in Florida, rainwater seeps through the wild and ambles vegetation and leaves, naturally picking up the organic residue. After rain soaks into the aquifer, the organic compounds convert to sulfur. The sulfur is what gives the water its nasty smell compared to rotten eggs.
Not only does sulfur smell, but it also weakens chlorine, commonly used to disinfect utility water. So what can you do to cut down on Orlando’s water bad smell?
What can be the source of the odor?
Most of the residents in central Florida get their water either through city water or Well water; each one can have a different reason for the bad smell.
If You are using City water, for example, the odor can be either from excess chlorine level, which will not only have a strong smell but also affect the taste of your water or cold and hot drinks.
The absence of chlorine also in city water indicates that you have a dead end or your network is in an area with low demand, and the chlorine is consumed; then the water will be stagnant and generate a bad Rotton egg smell.
Sometimes the network can be compromised by sudden pipe breakage.
While if you are using private Well Water, the source can be sulfur from groundwater or iron bacteria development in your well.
