My water smells like rotten eggs. What should I test for?

The rotten egg smell is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), a naturally occurring gas. If you smell it, it is there. Your sense of smell can detect H2S at very low levels, lower then the detection limit of our test. Additionally, there is a charge to analyze for H2S.
