In response to Re: water odor (rotten egg smell)- toddler drinking it?
If the baby drinks the hot water, you could have a more serious problem than the hydrogen sulfide. I have been in areas of the country where hydrogen sulfide is in the water supply and those people thought it was the best water they have ever had.

: Hello, all. I am hoping someone can help! Our upstairs bathroom sink sometimes smells like rotten eggs when we turn the hot water on. At one point, it was happening all the time. I haven't noticed much recently. I read in the post at http://terrylove.com/wwwboard/messages2/30698.html that this could be hydrogen sulfide gas and/or related to anode rod. I don't know much about those. My question is: could this be dangerous to our 8-month old baby, if she ingests that water? Or if we fix the problem, how costly would that be? Thanks so much--
