        We recently installed a gas hot water heater into the building I work in for the first time. We have well water. Within a week hot water became almost intolerable with a pungent rotten egg smell. How can we remove this horrible smell.

          Open the water heater and add a cup of household bleach into the water heater. Let sit for one hour, then flush water heater from the drain valve until bleach is gone. If the water is not used a lot, this will probably return. It is possible to remove the anode rod, but it will void the warranty.
