 Rotten egg smell!
Author: David G (FL)

Rotten egg smell from all faucets,bathrooms, kitchen, laundry. Not all the time,but always comes back.

Neighbors say they do not have the problem.Sometimes disappears for a couple of weeks, but always comes back.

Plumbers say it is not the water-heater, but no one we have consulted can come up with an answer.

Ideas, please.

Thank you

David G

Private well or community water supply ?

Does the cold water smell, or just the hot water?

Not saying the plumbers are wrong, but how did they determine the water heater was not the problem?
