Help! My Tap Water Smells Like Fish

Treat Those Nasty Water Odors in Your Home or Business

If your tap water smells like fish, fear not; chances are your well or water system is not infested with little Nemos, nor is it infected with bacteria that pose a direct threat to your health. But who wants to drink—or shower with, or clean dishes or laundry with—smelly water?

Oftentimes, the culprit of fishy smelling water is very simply the result of certain organic materials built up in your well, pipes, faucets, or drains. Both barium and cadmium, in amounts excessive to EPA regulations, can give water a fishy odor. Other causes of this particular odor may be the existence of chloramine (which is used to disinfect public water systems) or algae blooms, especially in summer.

  • George Craggy

    Jonathan, I wanted to drop a couple of lines to tell you how satisfied and happy that I chose Capital Well Co. for my water needs. From your lead man Steve to your drill people, your plumbing guy and your guy on the back hoe. Everyone that cast a shadow on my door threshold were polite, professional and willing to take the time to explain and answer my questions; which were many . Jon, it was my pleasure to meet you today and pleased that you came by for a follow up visit and explain how the heater works. SO...if I get a chance to tell everyone that needs a new well, I definitely will. It is apparent there is no "I" in your team . Thank you everyone.
  • Richard Meaney

    Mr. Swain, Thank you so much for the service Capital Well provided at my home today. I left a message with you at the behest of Ed Monty. I received a prompt phone call from Greg to arrange for a service call and to discuss what might need to be done. Promptly at (actually a few minutes before) the scheduled time, Bobby showed up to perform the service. Bobby was excellent at explaining the service, why some things were needed and how the well and pump worked, and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. All in all, this was a very positive experience for us. Thanks to you and the people at Capital Well for prompt, courteous, and efficient service.
