I've read various messages on your board, but not sure which applies to us. We have a private well which we share with the landlord in an adjacent house. We also have a water softener system. Our cold water only smells; the hot water smells only if we let the cold water smell go for months; the landlord's water doesn't smell! We can lessen the smell for a couple of weeks by changing the carbon filter on the water heater and adding some bleach when replacing, but lately not even that is helping. We can't afford to dig a new well. Any suggestions or ideas why our water smells so badly and the landlord's doesn't?
