    I think my water taste funny. On occasion it's a bit sulpher-y. Common down here. But now my ice tea is a bit sulpher-y smelling.
    Is water delivery expensive?

    I have no idea about cost, but sulfur water is not good for tea, iced tea, or coffee. [​IMG] And for showering ================

    LOL. I need bottled water. Showers are not a problem, neither is cooking. It's very faint and intermittent.

    My parents got bottles water all while we were growing up. I don't think its that expensive but I'm not sure off hand how much (I doubt they would still get it if it was a lot). Our water is well water but smells like sulfur also. If you let it sit out the smell goes away but it is gross! Before that we had iron in the water so we just don't take and chances.

    have you thought of getting a filter on your kitchen faucet or a pitcher kind for the fridge? that may be easier and less expensive.

    Those things don't really take care of the sulfur though. It just makes the filter super stinky!

    My boyfriend's family has sulfur water, they have both a point-of-entry filter and a kitchen sink filter. I can taste no sulfur now, and I could before they installed the filters. His family use to spend a ridiculous amount on bottled water, but now save a lot thanks to the filters! Bottled water has an absurd markup, and most come directly from public water sources, often without even filtering it!
