Hot Water Heater Smell
Posted by Donald on May 09, 19101 at 21:38:18:
I have a two year old water heater. Over the past year or so on different occassions my hot water has had a bad sulfer smell coming from it. I was told my my local water company to drain my hot water tank and that should assist with the odor. Apparently my water softner (Potassium chlorate not sodium chlorate)was removing the chlorine from the water which was causing this odor in my hot water. I did as I was told however the odor is back again. I did once again drain my tank for about 25 minutes and I even flushed my softner and replace the potassium. The smell still exists and is stronger than ever. Any suggestions?
