Where I live, the water has a high sulfur content apparently. My newish water heater has an aluminum tank. but the old glass lined Raritan HWH also had the "stink"

Other then bypassing the HWH for anything other then actual trips with the boat, what can kill the stink? I've used bleach, it helps a little but the stink soon comes back.

Thanks MHG! I even the the "smell" occasionally at the home faucets too. but that water isn't being heated and reheated and stored for gawd knows how long til the next time I use it on the boat LOL

It's really from not using the boat much. I need to take the WH out of the circuit to really solve the problem. The smell was there even with the old WH that was glass lined.

Thanks all!
