Hydrogen Sulphide Removal Systems
Does your water smell like rotten eggs? If yes, you’re most likely dealing with hydrogen sulphide in your well water. Hydrogen sulphide is known for having a very distinct smell of rotten eggs and/or tends to turn water to a rather unattractive shade of yellow.
Your private well may get contaminated naturally due to decaying underground organic material or due to pollution from septic tanks or sewers.
Problems Caused by Hydrogen Sulphide in Water
While hydrogen sulphide is a poisonous gas, the concentrations of the gas in water are more of a nuisance than a health threat.
The presence of hydrogen sulphide can lead to a foul and off-putting odour in your water (similar to rotten eggs), making it unappealing for drinking, cooking, and everyday use.
Hydrogen sulphide can corrode plumbing fixtures and appliances, potentially leading to leakage of pipes, costly repairs and replacements.
In addition to its odour, hydrogen sulphide can create black staining on fixtures and laundry, further impacting the aesthetics of your water.
Detection of hydrogen sulphide in water can be strong indicator of presence of other harmful contaminants, making it essential to address its removal.
How to Remove Hydrogen Sulphide from Water?
One of the easiest and cost-effective ways to remove dissolved hydrogen sulphide from water is by oxidising it to a physical form that can then be filtered out. A technique known as aeration is used that harnesses the oxidizing power of air to eliminate problematic hydrogen sulphide. The aeration method is the safest as the method does not add more chemicals to the well.
An aeration system comprises an aeration tank, aeration spray system, booster pump, and activated carbon filter. Aeration systems work by introducing air into the water supply. This process facilitates the release of dissolved hydrogen sulphide gas into the air, effectively removing it from the water.
The water is once again pressurized by the use of a booster pump which supplies water to the property through an activated carbon filter. It absorbs the gas on its surface and polishes the water removing even slightest traces of hydrogen sulphide gas from water.
