Sulfate Reducing Bacteria is an aesthetic problem that can cause odors in your water as well as cause possible corrosion to your pipes. If you have a rotten egg odor, this is an indicator that there may be sulfate reducing bacteria present in your water. Hydrogen sulfide is a waste product of sulfate reducing bacteria. You might also see a black or dark brown sludge looking ring around your toilet tank which may indicate sulfate reducing bacteria presence. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may want to perform a Sulfate Reducing Bacteria Water Test.
If you are performing testing to meet a regulatory requirement or if your results may be used for litigation purposes, please contact us for more information about testing packages designed for those purposes.
