My wife, baby and I just came back from a 2 week trip and noticed that our hot water smells. The cold water is fine, but the hot water smells pretty nasty. My wife thinks it smells metallic, to me it reminds me of that stale smell that comes from a long dead dried mouse or the like.
Either way, it's pretty gross, and I'm not sure what's causing it. Our water heater is on it's way out, is it trying to tell us that it wants to retire? Is the smelly water safe to bathe our 3 month old in?
