Can I clean out my existing chlorine metering pump and switch to peroxide?” This is an excellent question, and often the answer is Yes.

Many homeowners contact us to find out how to fix well water that smells bad. Water containing hydrogen sulfide gas (“H2S”), has a distinctive "rotten egg" odor, which may be especially noticeable when running hot water. Such water can discolor coffee, tea, and other beverages, and affect the taste of water. It can also change the taste of cooked foods. Hydrogen sulfide (“H2S”) gas is a nuisance that is not usually a health risk at concentrations normally found in household water.
Ozonation is a process used for disinfecting water. It is a common water treatment method used to replace chlorination for a variety of different purposes.
The system is doing great now. Thanks for all your help! The Chemsorb cleaned up and we have crystal clear water again. Running the Ozone unit on pure oxygen. Running about 12 SCFH now seems to be the most potent flow on pure oxygen.
