We had this same problem last year--it was a strong sulphur/rotten egg smell after installation of a new water heater.  After much research online, we decided to try this:  we opened the water heater and poured in a bottle of hydrogen peroxide.  Let it sit about an hour, then ran the hot water through all our faucets.  It worked!  Our next attempt was going to be removal of the anode.

Expertise

My field of expertise is in domestic water treatment. I am retired and have 28 years of experience in the water treatment field. I have earned the designation of Water Specialist, level five, from the Water Quality Association.I can offer help in the solution for private wells` problems as to `point of entry` and `point of use` treatments. these would include,disinfection,conditioning,and purification for drinking including reverse osmosis technology. Problems concerning well pumps,or plumbing or well drilling are out of my field,as well as commericial,industrial or municipal water treatment. I prefer to limit questions to the average homeowner`s use.Since retiring I have added consultation on the care and ,maintenance of domestic water treatment systems. These include filtration, conditioning/softening,chemical feed, and drinking water systems.
