    Default new electric hot water heater...smelly water

    After replacing my electric hot water heater, my hot water now has a rotten eggs smell and black discharge every few days. I purge the system but the problem returns. I did not have this problem with the old heater.

    Default Re: new electric hot water heater...smelly water

    I had the same problem with the egg smell. It turned out that due to having well water, the copper rod in the tank needed to be removed. Once done, the smell was gone but so was my warranty for the hot water tank. Only going on past experience here, I have no training to answer a plumbing issue. Wondering why the installers did not ask....there or here?
    Good luck.
