In response to Re: Sulfur smell from shower drain
: : Our shower emits a sulfur smell whenever we run the water. I thought it was a drain problem but someone suggested it may be a water heater problem. The smell only occurs when we run the water in the shower and nowhere else. I've been pouring Draino down there for two weeks now and the smell hasn't gone away. What's happening?

When we run the hot water we get a very strong smell of sulphur. I have been advised that it is probably a chemical reaction caused by the water and the anode rod in the hot water heater, and may be helped by replacing the rod.
