Stinky Water!
Posted by Ed Holler on September 01, 19100 at 21:24:40:
I just added aproximately 3,000 sq.ft. to my home. I wound up using CPVC piping in the addition. I am on a well, with filters and softener. The water comming out of the fixtures in the addition smells terrible. It sort of has a sulfur-like smell. If I let the water run for 30 minutes or so, the smell goes away. But, it is back again the next time I use the water in the addition.

The water on the previously existing part of the house is fine. Do you have any ideas as to what would cause the CPVC side to smell? If so... What can I do about it?
