Benefits of a Sulfur Filter System
While sulfur in your water doesn’t cause health issues, it can leave your water with a foul odor and taste, often linked to that of rotten eggs. Hydrogen sulfide and its distinctive smell can be drastically reduced with chlorine injection treatment. If left untreated, dissolved hydrogen sulfide can corrode metals, which can cause blackening of your silverware and discoloring of copper and brass utensils. With the Pentair Sulfur Filter System, you can transform the quality of your well water by equipping your home with an efficient sulfur solution. Save your silverware, plumbing, and appliances from sulfur stains while enjoying refreshing, great-tasting water from every tap in your home.

How it works
Chlorine mixes with your sulfur-contaminated water to reduce nuisance organisms.
The mixing time for disinfection depends on chlorine concentration, water temperature, pH level, and the amount of organic matter present. Our specialized retention tank mixes the chlorine faster than standard retention tanks for optimal chlorine contact.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is sulfur in my water dangerous?
There are no known health effects associated with hydrogen sulfide in water. However, substantial concentrations can affect the taste and smell of your drinking water.
How do I know if my home needs a sulfur filter?
Sulfur water filters are effective when hydrogen sulfide exists in your water source. If the “rotten egg” smell comes from your hot water only, the problem could be the anode rod in your water heater.
Will this system also reduce iron from my water?
