Tests your Well or Private Spring for
- - Sulfate Reducing Bacteria
Sulfate reducing bacteria feed upon sulfur based compounds including sulfate, sulfite, elemental sulfur and thiosulfate. They produce hydrogen sulfide as a by-product, so the "rotten egg odor" is often an indication that these bacteria are present. Other indications include blackening of the water or black slime formed in the back of the toilet tank.
