Why does my water
smells like rotten eggs?
The smell of rotten eggs is a gas from bacteria referred to as an "iron" or "sulfur" bacteria and can enter water through a break in the water pipes. We have been asked to run the hot water through the lines but sometimes the source of the problem isn't in the hot water, but is actually coming from bacteria that have built up in your drains. If the bacteria are growing in your drains, you can add a cup of bleach to the drain to kill the bacteria and stop the odor. We do recommend contacting your local plumbing company for more information and advice.
