Residents of Northwest Indiana, particularly around Valparaiso, Hebron, Hobart, St. John, Lowell, Crown Point, Demotte, Cedar Lake and Wheatfield have experienced it, smelled and often accepted it as a way of life… but it does not have to be.
Hydrogen sulfide gas or sulfur in water usually smells like rotten eggs and can be found in underground aquifers throughout Northwest Indiana. Aside from the terrible odor, the dissolved gas can also cause cloudiness and your pipes to hammer and spit gas when you open your faucets. These gases can also be corrosive to plumbing systems, causing wear on valves, seats and washers and often leaving unsightly greasy black residue.
Since the 1960’s, Miracle | EcoWater Systems has been dedicated to resolving the most stubborn hydrogen sulfide / sulfur gas water problems throughout Valparaiso, Hebron, Hobart, St. John, Lowell, Crown Point, Demotte, Cedar Lake and Wheatfield.
Although a rotten egg odor is occasionally only present in hot water, a problem that can be easily addressed by servicing your water heater, when present in cold water, an actual chemical test is required to identify the parts per million of sulfur gas so as to determine the type of water treatment necessary for its elimination. In less severe cases a cartridge filter or backwashing carbon filter will solve the problem, however stronger concentrations may require oxidation with an oxidizing filter. In the instance of sulfur-reducing bacteria, chemical injection, with Hydrogen Peroxide is the best solution and Miracle | EcoWater Systems method of choice.
The ETF AIV is a chemical free system, with fresh air providing oxidation. This is typically effective for lighter concentrations of Hydrogen sulfide gas.
In the most severe cases, where fresh air oxidation will not adequately remove Sulfur/Hydrogen Sulfide problems, the instruments of choice are the ETF 2100 PF Series combined with the Stenner® Chemical Injection pump with Hydrogen Peroxide.

Given enough time Sulfur will ultimately dissipate. This Stenner® Chemical Injection pump speeds up the process using Hydrogen Peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide (“H2O2”) releases oxygen bubbles into the water, which are a powerful oxidizing agent that decomposes sulfur into oxygen and water leaving no trace of chemical residues. It is more powerful than aeration, chlorine or potassium permanganate. Injected into the water lines, coming from a well, via a Stenner® chemical feed pump before the pressure tank, it will not only remove sulfur odor, but kill bacteria and oxidize iron and manganese.
The newly introduced hydrogen peroxide will flow through a mixing valve and travel into your well pressure tank. In the most severe cases, we will use a 40 to 120 gallon retention tank. The size is determined by the amount of sulfur and amount of water usage in the home. In the retention tank the hydrogen peroxide has its chemical reaction with the sulfur rich water. After this step, the water flows through the ETF 2100 PF filter removing the sulfur (and rotten egg smell) eventually going through your softener resulting in sulfur free soft water being distributed throughout the entire house.
Chemical feed systems are not only safe, but are among the most effective, versatile, and cost-efficient water treatment devices on the market. Depending on the chemical agent used, the same equipment can actually also treat bacteria, iron, manganese, low pH, and many other water problems. Maintenance of the Hydrogen Peroxide Injection Unit is limited to simply monitoring the hydrogen peroxide level.
