Special WH Instructions after visiting Edisto Beach

Unread postby rmw1990 on Fri Jun 20, 2008 3:51 pm

Hi Everyone,

Friends of ours are visiting Edisto Beach CG and they were told that they needed to put an additive into the WH and fill with water then drain the WH because of the sulfur in the water at Edisto. Does anyone have any additional information regarding this? If so, what would the additive be?

Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.

This is the first thing I could find... Smelly Water It basically talks about the issue with domestic hot water heaters - I'm still looking for info related to RVs :)

Sulfur water is quite normal in this part of the world. Harmless, but some folks don''t like the smell. When you have drank it all your life it is not a problem. Nothing but a heavy concentration of certain minerals in the water.

Normal for us too. Since our well was repaired a few years ago, and the pipe goes deeper, our water has gotten more sulfery. I don't like it, but I haven't died yet. :)
