: There is a bad sulfer type oder everytime we use our master bath shower. Other sinks and showers do not seem to give off an oder. We've had a plumber look at it. He said it was sulfer in the pipes but he didn't know the cause or what to do about it. Is there any products that will help?

Frank,
Sulfur odor can be caused not only by hydrogen sulfide gas, but also by some harmless bacteria growing either in your water source or your drains, or (if odor is stronest in hot water)from something call a sacrificial magnesium anode rod inside your hot water heater. Removing it will eliminate the odor in short order. However the rod is designed to thwart corrosion of the water heater tank so check with your manufacturer, local water treatment professionals, etc and make sure you don't void any warranties you wish to keep once you remove it.
Good Luck.
