Although your question is a bit too vague, there are numerous ways to reduce or elminate hydrogen sulfide from well water. But before you select any piece of equipment or system, a number of details must be understood first.
Are you intending to use the water form utility purposes, drinking water, or other uses?
Does your hot water smell any different from your cold water?
Do you have a submersible pump or a jet/deep well pump?
What size is your pressure tank? Is it a bladder style or static air?
For most high sulfur waters, a whole house system is nearly always recommended as it is more efficient, longer lasting and less maintenance.
Chloination, ozone, greensand w/potassium permanganate, carbon backwashing, aeration systems are the most common choices available to home owners. A simple carbon (or KDF) in-line filter will not last long and you will be replacing them too frequently. Theu are cheaper to set up but may cost you much more in a short time...as well as the inconvenience.
Let me know your concerns and details.
