Draining everything should help, including your pressure tank (if you have a private well), if you have municipal water see why your water district is not treating your water for high sulfer content and see when they last tested for bacteria. If you have a private well it is a good idea to get your water tested for bacteria every year, it is probably just Hydrogen sufide but better safe than sorry. In the case of a private well shock chlorination can remedy a HS problem temporarily, at the same time it sanitizes your well. Hydrogen Sulfide is stinky, but unless it is EXTREMEY high it poses no health hazard. Master Well Driller State of Maryland
