How do you get odor out of well water


How do you get the bad odor out of well water we have just moved into a nice rental unit / house but we do have one problem with the odor in the water .

We have a charcoal filter on the faucet ( or what I think is a charcoal filter ) and that water is drinkable ,but it takes so long to get a picture of water .

don't they have a larger inline filter that can be installed near the water softener that does remove the odor for all in house water .

I just now smelled the hot water , it does not smell like the cold water does ( in the house )
I then went outside to the spekit at the well and I do smell it there.

When my wife comes home I should have her smell it at all of these places ?

can you tone down the volume of your posts?


Sounds like you need to chlorinate the well.

and yes, you can get whole house filters but you would need your landlords permission to install it and unless he agreed it leaves with you, a built in unit becomes part of the house.
