What my family uses is a well water which means our water source is grabbed from the ground. The water is usually stuffed of minerals plus is icky. It wrecks our tub surround, ruins our faucets plus ruins our teeth. The taxing water also can not be handled by any water softeners or water cleaning tools. It ruins all fantastic things in the plumbing field. Well recently our taxing water managed to wreck our sizzling water. I was doing the dishes plus I saw that there was a horrible rotten egg odor, then every time I went to use the dish water the smell went through the air. It was so awful that I could not stay around to scrub dishes. I also did not want to wash my body in that gross odor either. My family has had this happen once plus I knew what I had to do to fix the issue. The issue is that the sizzling water tank has a portion called an anode rod. The rod is what takes the minerals plus terrible things in our taxing water. It is overall a portion that is used to wash water. Well our water is so awful that the anode rod locates so many minerals plus clogs up. Then the water gets icky plus then has an odor like eggs. I did not need to call a plumber or a plumbing contractor. My husband has gotten so many anode rods out that he knew what to do, next my husband and I had to dump blench down our pipes to get it out.
