Rotten Eggs?

The smell of rotten eggs is not pleasant anywhere and certainly not coming from your water.  What do you do?  Run the hot water first to determine if you can smell the unpleasant odor, then turn the hot water off.  Now run the cold water to determine if the smell is there also.
If you smell rotten eggs from only the hot water tap, the source is probably from your hot water heater.  If the smell is from both, and you have a water softener, you probably have sulfur-reducing water inside the water softener.
Call Deans and we can help you determine where the problem is and what the solution is. Find answers to other heating and plumbing questions on our Minneapolis Heating Services FAQ’s page and Minneapolis Plumbing FAQ’s page.
