We've recently moved to Goodyear, AZ from California and find the water loaded with impurities.
We've been told we're in a valley created by a volcano and the powers that be didn't drill wells quite deep enough to get to pure water, true or false.
We've installed a filtration system to cleanse the water and a reverse osmosis system to "purify" our drinking water. There's still an odor from the impurities, that is short lived daily, when first turning on faucets in the morning. Any remedy for this?
Hello, and thank you for your question.
Without a water-quality report, it is hard to know what is causing the odor but I suspect it might be sulfur. I would recommend you first get a local water quality report so you know what you are dealing with.
Find out if the annual water quality report for your local area is posted online at the EPA website.
I am a little surprised that with the R.O. system and the filtration system you already have installed, that you still have an odor.
I can’t really offer any ideas without knowing for sure what is causing the odor, although I suspect it may be sulfur.
Once you know what is in the water, then you can get specific filtration media for that contaminant.
I realize you already invested in drinking water system, but if you want to know, for future reference, the water filtration manufacturer Crystal Quest makes custom water filtration systems to remove just about any specific contaminant.
Also, it sounds like your filtration system and RO system is at the kitchen sink or some other sink?
If so, it might be necessary at some point to invest in a full house water filter system to remove the impurities at the point of entry of all water into your house.
The pipes in the house might be harboring some type of water contaminants. If this is the case, then if you were to install a whole house water system, by the time the water gets to the sinks, it should not have the odor.
I hope this helps you to find a solution.

"Lemon water is one drink both my wife and I can't drink. It upsets our stomachs. We are in our sixties and in very good health—well, better health now that we drink about 2 liters plus of water each day. It has made so much difference to our digestive systems and recovery every day. Thank you for your website and effort." - Rod
