After our purchasing a new home we did not move in for a move. Hot water smelled like rotten eggs. draining hwt cured that but we are spring leaks and finding rubber gaskets are corroded. Is this related to the hwt rotten eggs smell. Smell was only in hot water. Help! My husband thinks we are in for a major plumbing repair and I am afraid he is correct.
the rotten eggs smell is from the anode rod inside the water heater. as far as the rubber gaskets leaking you might be refering to die-eletric unions sometimes they leak cause they were tightened too tight. either case not too expensive good luck
