Water filters - does reverse osmosis get rid of sulfur?



hi, - i've had the reverse osmosis filter recommended to me for
health reasons. our water also has a severe sulfur problem, so since
moving here, about 7 years now, we've been using some sort of filter
that's in the garage and requires adding bleach every month. it helps
a lot but isn't perfect since every now and then some sulfur makes its
way thru, and the water sometimes turns soft. plus the bleach can't
be good health-wise (even tho we've been drinking only bottled water
for as long as i can recall)... so i'm wondering if getting reverse
osmosis filters for the taps and shower will take care of all these
problems - will it get rid of the sulfur? we'll be able to drink from
the tap? should it eliminate all health concerns? also how much
should i expect to pay for a reliable filter? thank you, ~raine




Wow, I'd do some research on Google, and then talk to a
few dealers aroun town, then go back to my research to
see what fits with what in what you were told or were
able to read in their literature.
I do know that sulfur in the "gas" form and in the
"mineral" form is different, and one wont' hurt but
the other could, however I'm nowhere near qualified to
give an answer expecially when it's w/r to a health
If you can't find anything at Google, come on back
and I'll get you some links to visit for research.
Culligan.com is one place that used to have a lot of
online info - haven't been there in years though.
Search for [ "well water" +sulfur ] would be my
stariting point; but it may need finessing. I got over
8,000 hits and that's too many to sort thru.

Good luck!

I have sulfur water also. I used a Aerator system that when well water is pump up from ground it goes thru spray nozzles in a large tank with vents. The water enters the tank thru nozzles and is vented outside before it enters the house. The tank stores about 60 to 80 gallons of treated water and then goes thru a softener system before going to the house. No odor goes into the house. Been using it for about 35 years.
