Hot water smells like gas
Posted by Jeff S. on September 04, 2002 at 12:48:42:
I just replaced a shower valve on an older house that has galvanized piping. I used dielectric unions to connect the new copper piping and valve body to the old galv. pipe runs. Now the hot water smells like gas, especially when first turned on, and more from the tub spout than from the shower head. None of the other hot water sources in the house have the smell. (Note: the hot water temp. was increased a bit just before I did the job. It has since been returned to its previous temp. setting.) Does anyone know how this could have happened? It is not well water. Much thanks.
