Having Smelly Water Stinks


Fix it with an all-natural, affordable solution from Universal Water Systems

There are typically two water contaminants that can cause your water to smell like sulfur or rotten eggs, one is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and the other is iron or sulfates.

 H2S is a mineral that is released from the earth and finds its way into groundwater. It’s especially common in well water located near shale, sandstone, coal, peat, or oil.

 Occasionally, a rotten-egg smell in your water could also be caused by a water heater or by sewage pollution in your water. If you’re on city water, the most likely explanation is your water heater.

 The most important thing to note is that it is ALWAYS worthwhile to get your water tested as H2S poses a serious potential health risk including nausea, vomiting, and other serious health effects.

 So how do you fix it?

 Depending on the root cause of the issue there are affordable options available through Universal Water Systems. We offer free water testing to determine the source of the smell. There’s no obligation to purchase equipment from us as our goal is to provide valuable information help you make the best decision for your home and family.

I had wanted to get a water refining system installed in my newly renovated home, but had to wait a year in doing so. To be honest, I was still a bit apprehensive due to the cost of the system but decided to finally pull the trigger. Let me just say within the very first shower taken, I knew I made the right decision. My entire showering experience was next level. I seriously thought to my self, “how the heck did I ever get cleaned prior to this system being installed”?!? Within one use, you will feel the luxury and all around a better well being. I am writing this review two hours after my shower and I can still feel the moisture in my skin left over from my new refined water. Immediately noticeable difference in how laundry comes out of the dryer. My pets bedding got washed and it seriously came out looking like a fluffy little cloud of love. I am 100% sold on this product and once installed you will not regret your decision with your purchase. My entire family, including our pets, are all feeling the immediate benefits of our new system. We are forever sold on an in home water refining system. Once you get one installed, I promise you... you will never go back to normal city water again.

Husband went to Home Depot for new sink faucet due to major calcium build up , Brad helped him with the item , and Brad recommend a water softener due to us having hard water. He helped set us up for a free home estimate through Universal Water Systems with their EcoWater System. Steve W. came to our house and gave us the information on it, we were holding off on getting one because we didn’t think we could afford one and it would be in the double digits (thousands). We knew we had hard water but visually seeing how extremely hard our water truly was , a bit disturbing due to how much damage calcium buildup it can have on our pipes. He went over the price and we can afford it, so we made the leap and purchased the Model R40 which was their biggest one in case our family grew, which they didn’t pressure us with the biggest one it was my decision. They came to install the system and the crew was on time and very professional. They also cleaned yo after themselves and respected my home and got the install done in a very timely manner. They also explained the system to us. I highly recommend this company because the general manager Justin T. ( J.T.) has a heck of a good crew that are professional and personable. Good products that work with professional install, yes is not cheap, but this was worth the price and install for a really good system.We have had this system for a month now and we noticed a huge difference with this system cleaning out our calcium built pipes, I have also used less cleaning products and our skin and hair are much softer. Thank you Water Systems for your professionalism, honest work, and personable staff on delivering us an amazing product that will save us money now and in the very long future.

We got our system 6 months ago and to be totally honest my wife and I cannot go back to how things were before. After a couple months we thought maybe this was a poor decision because of our finances, but we went on vacation during the summer and had to use the showers at the hotels and it felt like we couldn't get clean. We couldn't wait to shower in our own home again because our water was so much better. I notice it with our extra bathroom too. One of the toilets does not get used often but there isn't a ring build up around the water. The only reason I don't give them 5 stars is because of how pressured we felt to buy the system. Our sale took nearly 2 hours and my wife and I had to make a quick decision because she had to leave for work and the offers they were giving us that day wouldn't be good later. We don't make a lot of money so some more time to make sure we could afford would have been nice but I have no regrets about the system. Works great and I love it.

Universal Water systems installed came to my new place and I was immediately sold. The quality of presentation was great. When they came to install the water system they were extremely professional and helpful. They went over everything step by step. One week of drinking the filtered water and you won’t want to drink regular tap water again. The Ecowater System is great and works wonderfully. Highly recommend.

If you're a Costco member AND you want clean water for your home and family, you NEED to contact EcoWater for a demonstration and get the system! I am completely blown away at how disgustingly hard our water is, and Kevin is amazing and obviously loves what he does. He sold me on the system the minute he showed me what was in my water and how much I can save by having clean water. The system has a lifetime warranty, and that's just even more peace of mind.

I just had my system installed yesterday so it is too early for me to make any meaningful comment on the quality of my "new" water but I have no reason to believe it will not be exactly as the salesperson demonstrated to us. The big thing I want to comment on is the service. They said they would be at my house at 8 AM and they were. The technician explained several facets of the installation I had not understood from the salesperson but he pointed them out very clearly. He then proceeded with the installation. And things went downhill - for me!! At least, I initially thought so. As the tech was preparing to drain my water heater to facilitate the installation the valve came off in his hand spraying him with water!! Needless to say a new water heater was needed. The tech said they could supply it if I wished and I asked would they install it if I could buy it at another vendor where I receive a military discount. Yes, they would be happy to do so. The rest if now history. They did everything needed to include giving me an educational briefing and demonstration of what I would be doing with the system in the future. The litter of pipes, bolts, and general trash generated by the installation of the water heater that covered my garage floor was absolutely non-existent when the team of technicians departed. This installation crew was professional down to the last man, courteous, and above all obviously proficient at their jobs. I thank the team and I thank Universal Water Systems for a very pleasant experience and look forward to a continued excellent relationship with them. This is truly an A1+ company to do business with.

5 star review for ecowater . Hello fellow ecowater system owners. My name is Ted Deherrera owner if ABQrenovations. I want to apologise for a very negative review I wrote out of frustration .it was not fair to take out my frustrations of one person and mistakes and of mistakes of my own and direct it on a whole company. Universal waters owner was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to fly to New Mexico to check on the installation of my system . And with no second thought advised his people to "fix it" and it was corrected. As I re read my first review I owe this man and his company a apology. That being said universal water and the sub that finished the install are second to none. And the product they install are as good as the best and better then most . 5 stars to universal and my apology.

It has been about a month since the installation of my Eco Water System and it is incredible the difference it has made to the water running through the plumbing in my home! The water not only tastes GREAT but it has made a difference with my clothes coming out of the washer much cleaner and softer and the dish washer getting everything much cleaner without that cloudy residue! And the Team at Universal Water Systems have been very helpful and knowledgable from the Sales people to the installers! Best decision I've made! Even my Dogs love the reverse osmosis water! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

We just had our Eco water filtration system installed several weeks ago. I love it. The RO water tastes amazing!! It's the clearest water I've ever seen (no more cloudy ice cubes!). The difference it makes on my skin is ridiculous (soooo soft). You can literally shave without shaving cream. Cleaning is a breeze. Everything looks so shiny and feels so smooth (e.g dishes, kitchen and bathroom counters) it's wonderful. I recommend getting the Pure Selects soaps also. They are great!

Darin Kee from Universal Water Systems (UWS) did a water softener and reverse osmosis system service today 3/18/2019. He was excellent. Walked us through each of the steps he performed and educated us about the system. I highly recommend the UWS systems, their excellent service, and Darin Kee.

After installing my universal Water system, another company came to my house trying to sell me their own. I let them test the water and they were quite surprised at how good my water was coming out with the Universal System. That erased any doubt I had as to the value of my investment.

We had our new system installed yesterday by Santiago and Izaiah, and they did a great job. Very professional, showed up on time, answered all our questions, and cleaned up after themselves. I am anxious and excited to see the results in the next few weeks, so far so good, the sales and installation have been great!

I cannot even begin to express how happy I've been with this company from start to finish! For starters, Kevin came to our house after I talked to a rep at home depot who told us they could check our water for free. I already knew that our water was bad because even our plants would get mineral build up from being in the water! Kevin did an amazing job showing us just how bad it truly was and answered all of our questions and just left us 100% certain that we needed this. Though they had both been great so far, the cherry on top was their installer Pete. He is a true perfectionist and was not satisfied until everything was perfect. He was even nice enough to fix a small leak under my sink! The filter really makes the water taste just as good as the bottled one and I swear this is worth every penny, but what really makes this company better than anyone else for me was their unmatched customer service!

I love our water softener but what I love the most is our RO filter. It makes the most tasty water, and I know it takes out harmful chemicals. I only wish that the filters were not so expensive.One more thing that’s important to know; it’s pricey to have them come out and do maintenance on the water softener, which is recommended. I had them come out and do it once, it felt like a huge waste of money because they were here for a total of 15 minutes and I’m not sure what/if they did anything maintenance like.

I never knew what a difference a water system could do until I was informed by some very knowledgeable people. And it is true too. The water system is awesome. I use less soap when showering and doing dishes. The dishes no longer have water marks when they're dry. Also my skin has been feeling much smoother and I drink more water from home with the reverse osmosis system.

This is the second time we have had them come and service our water system. The first time the technician was not too friendly and seemed like he did not want to be there.This time Darrin Kee was the technician to come. He was the best! Very friendly and customer oriented, helpful and answered any questions I had. Also thank you to Customer Service for working with me on my appointment time. All future services I will be requesting Darrin to be the tech. Thank you!

I had my Ecowater water refiner installed in my house about a month ago now into a slightly older house that I recently purchased. The water in my area of Albuquerque is fairly hard and appliances such as the fridge, dishwasher, and shower heads had significant scale buildup. The team at Universal Water Systems were professional and did a great job installing the system and so far it has been working great. I water my yard and plants with the treated water and they all look healthy and the water out of the reverse osmosis and even the normal faucets now tastes great and its night and day how much better the shower water feels. Overall I'm pretty happy with this home upgrade.
