    I don't think its yours, Some one should have known something. Smells like rotten eggs up to about 40 ppm there abouts, stronger will start having no smell and just knocks you out, lengthy exposer DEATH

    H2S = Hydrogen Sulfide

    Hard to say who is to blame.

    I put in a replacement system and found out it had a PH of 5.5 . The old assume the other unit worked for years so a new unit should not have issues. NOT!

    Now I check water quality always.

    Either way I am sure you will not have that problem again in the future.
