Why does my water smell like rotten eggs?
This is an indicator that hydrogen sulfide gas might be present in your water. A simple free field test from Bennett and Cole will determine the best way to treat this contaminant and remove it.
Why do I have whitish scale and deposits around my
faucets and shower head?
This is an indication of hardness in water, due to high levels of calcium. High calcium is a common problem in well water where there are natural deposits of limestone. We offer a free field test to determine your water’s calcium content and hardness level. Proper treatment eliminates it and stops scale build-up inside and outside your plumbing.
Why do I have orange rusty stains in my sinks and toilets?
Plus my water tastes like metal.
These symptoms indicate there is a certain level of iron in your water. A free field test will determine what type of iron it is and the best treatment option to remove it.
I have green stains in my shower and sinks, and sometimes
my water tastes sour. I’ve also had pinhole leaks in my
plumbing. What’s wrong?
Your plumbing is exhibiting classic signs of exposure to acidic water or low pH. Green stains are a result of acidic water corroding your copper pipes, leading to pin hole leaks and sour taste. A free field test will tell us your pH level, and allow us to design a treatment to protect your pipes.
