Both chlorine and chloramine (a combination of chlorine and ammonia) are commonly used to disinfect municipal water supplies, but they can also leave behind an unpleasant odor and leave your skin feeling dry.
Sulfur in your water supply is easily recognized by its offensive odor. Hydrogen sulfide gas causes the “rotten-egg” or sulfur water smell. If you notice this odor only when using hot water, the problem may be simply fixed by servicing the water heater. If your cold and hot water, however, is found to have traces of hydrogen sulfide, you may want to invest in a drinking water filtration system or more specialized water treatment filter.
