Question DetailsAsked on 6/11/2011

Smelly bathroom water

About a year ago, we noticed a bad smell when we turned on the hot water in the master bathroom. It got worse despite our 'bleeding' the faucet. The plumber came and said there was bacteria growth in the hot water heater and for about $ 200 he cleaned it out, and, I believe, changed some filters or something. Things were fine until recently when the odor is starting to come again. It is a sulfur/rotten egg odor. Only in the master bathroom. We have 2 hot water heaters, one for the bathrooms in the back of the house and one for the kitchen. The hot water heaters are said to be of high quality and were purchased in 2004. What is causing this ? What can we do to fix it ? How can we prevent it from happening again ?
