Live in North Country in NYS. Have well water w/sulfer issue. adding chlorine to well in moderate temp is a pia-- but tolerable. winter---bummer!!! thought of adding measured am't chlorine directly to 40 gal elec water heater.
suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I can get you one cheap only used for one week. My customer had it installed and hated it, next week he had it taken out. It had made no differance in his water.
He replaced it with a whole house charcoal filter, works and taste fine now.

The process of treating for sulfer can be automated. An injection pump can be used to inject a metered amount of chlorine (or alternatively hydrogen peroxide) into the water prior to the pressure tank each time the well pump runs. Injection pumps can be purchased for less than $300 from online suppliers. A more complete system includes the addition of a retention tank (to allow more time for the chlorine to oxidize the sulfer and allow the preciptate to drop to the bottom of the retention tank for periodic flushing) and a backwashing carbon filter to remove excess chlorine.
