Help! The water coming from water heater smells really acrid and nasty. I have rinsed and flushed and still no improvement! What can i do?

There is a bacteria that sometimes thrives in hot water tanks that smells like rotten eggs (sulphur) - odds are that is what you have. In any case, flush the water system thoroughly and sanitize with a strong chlorine solution.
