I hope that when you say PVC, that you do not actually mean PVC. It is not supposed to be used for hot water, nor is it approved for use inside a house. He is also problably using a male pipe into a female plastic fitting and the metal's expansion is stretching the plastic. Metal to plastic should always be done with a male plastic thread into a female pipe fitting.

: Our hot water tank started leaking where PVC joins metal pipes. My husband replaced area around the joints with new pvc, new joint....the leak just moved to the new place that pvc joins metal. We are now smelling a sulfer-like odor. Do you have a clue what the smell is??? And why can't we stop the dripping?
: Thanks so much.
