Detergent Odor/Foaming Water
If your water has a detergent odor, foams when drawn, or has a slight septic odor, it may indicate septic tank leakage into the water supply. This should be addressed immediately, as harmful bacteria may be present. First, you must find the source and take action to prevent the problem from reoccurring. Once this is done, the well should be shock chlorinated. If you are experiencing these issues with your water, discontinue use immediately and contact a local specialist in your area as soon as possible to resolve this issue.
