Water from the faucets smells like sulfur. Mildly concerned about it.
This post is actually for a friend of mine who lives way out in the boonies. I assume that this has been a problem for quite some time, as she now treats it like something she just has to "deal with," but all the water in her house that comes from a faucet has a strong, distinct smell of sulfur. It's not overpowering or sickening, but certainly unpleasant enough that any time I wash my hands, I have to hold my breath.
I suppose what I want to know is: how likely is it that this is directly harmful to human beings and animals? I mean, she showers in it, makes tea with it, cleans her dishes with it, and lets her pets drink it. Is it not one of the water company's duties to make sure that this isn't a serious problem? And, even assuming that it's completely harmless, why should anyone be forced to live with such an unpleasant odor day in and day out? Is there anything that can feasibly be done to "fix" the smelly water?
What's the best course of action to take in regards to getting the water tested and the odor neutralized?
