Odor & Discoloration

There are a number of reasons for odors in water, usually they are the result of:

  • Bacteria
  • Hydrogen Sulfide (produces a rotten egg smell)
  • Decaying organic matter (produces a rotten egg smell)
  • Chemicals, like pesticides
  • Iron or manganese


The Vortex Water Revitalizer eliminates, or dramatically reduces, bacteria and other toxins from the water, and therefore helps in the elimination of odors in water.

Discolored water is usually the result of:

  • High mineral content/Hard water
  • Bacteria and toxins in the water
  • Sediment


The Vortex Water Revitalizer treats high mineral content, rust, and bacteria in water and will eliminate or reduce some discoloration. Discoloration caused by sediment will need to be treated with a sediment filter, the Vortex Water Revitalizer should be installed after the filter.

The following is an example of one customer's experience with the Vortex Water Revitalizer clarifying water, which had been treated by an old whole house filter. The filter produced the brownish colored water seen to the left. After installing a Whole House Vortex Water Revitalizer after the filter, the water came out clear, as displayed in bucket on the right.
