|In response to Re: Stinky Sink|
You described exactly what I have been experiencing for the last few months. Upstairs bath sink, cold water only. Not a trace of odor from any other faucet or fixture. Smells for a few seconds, and then goes away. Iron bacteria might have built up in the softener resin tank, and brine tank; in pipes too? I shocked the brine tank with 1/2 cup of bleach, then regenerated, but smell seems to still be there. And the odor is not present in the untreated water (proof that bacteria is in the system/pipes). Think I might drain pipe & fill with solution of bleach to eliminate that possibility.
: Thanks, Howard
