In response to Re: water odor (rotten egg smell)- toddler drinking it?
Oh, I don't mean the baby would actually drink hot water. But she's exposed to lukewarm water from the faucet -- ex. both the hot and cold faucets are on. I put facecloths in the water, for washing her face. etc. However, what if, for instance, her oatmeal was too dry, and I added I got water from that faucet because it was closest. And over time, she'll brush her teeth at that faucet. So I'm just not sure if exposure to water from that faucet should be a concern??

: 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--
