We're moving into our new house in a few days, and we just recently got the water turned on. When we ran water to clean up the place, we noticed a very strong sulphur odor. It is in a rural area but is hooked up to county water (i.e. not a well). How likely is it that the sulphur smell will dissipate as we use more water? Is it from sitting in the line unused for so long? The house has been built for a while but has never had water running through the pipes before now. Is it more likely that this is "hard" water and if so is there something we can buy to make it less stinky? I'd hate to think of taking showers in that and smelling like sulphur all the time. Ick!
So, anyone know anything about water softeners or other solutions to my stinky water problem?
