Smelly water coming from heater
Posted by Julie on September 17, 1999 at 07:50:27:
Ive figured out the rotten egg smell that is in my water is coming from the heater. I can get rid of the smell temporaraly if I run out all the hot water, but it returns in a few days. I understand that I need to take out the anode rod in the heater---but how do you do that? And will the heater corode sooner because the rod is gone? Is there a replacement rod or do they make a water heater that wont produce this smell? Help.
