Air injection systems

Those systems are quite effective if properly designed and integrated. When not properly designed, they're a living nightmare.

Cost is relative. If this is a blind purchase (mail-order/wholesale supply etc...) you can definitely do better on price. The $2500 will be well worth it if the company is prepared to install & support it. Odors like that can be very difficult to remedy and often require numerous service visits in the first 90 days, which all cost money.

As always, make sure that they test for pH, sulfate, iron, H2S etc... before they specify the equipment. Have them retest for you after the system is installed and calibrated.

Good luck !

Greg is right, you can get equip cheaper but are you sizing it properly? You can get units for any water problems and put them in but if you do not get the proper size ( capacity) it will not work for you and then your out that money, and calling in a qualifed service tech to put in a proper size / capacity system. Problems like this are best to call in a specialist. Do not call a plumber, I've gone to so many homes and businesses where a plumber put in units and plumbed them wrong, didin't size right, did not put right equipment in for the problem etc. Some I've corrected and got working right, others well ..... call your plumber and try to get your money back after we put in the proper equip.
Not bashing plumbers, they are your all around pipe guys, for high quality water call a specialist. You don't go to your general Dr to have brain surgery done. Just an example of there are times to call in a specialist. Good luck Tom.
