    Default My water is starting to smell odd. Sodick Wire EDM

    Hey guys, first port on Practical Machinist.
    I'm trying to figure out why my water has started to smell bad.
    I haven't changed the materials I burn or the consumables I use.
    I also noticed some (for lack of a better word) "suds" coming out of the pumps. It's not a lot, but it's noticeable.

    Anyone have any suggestions as to what may be causing this?

    The smell could be from the D.I. level being to high.
    The "suds" could be from a low water level allowing air to be sucked into the pump.
    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    John
