Why Does Hot Water Smell?

Each water heater is manufactured with a magnesium anode to temporarily limit rust. In most cases, the sulphur odour is caused by water with a high magnesium content that comes into contact with the original anode already present in the water heater. In addition, this smell can be created by a bacterium (sulfur bacteria). The Corro-Protec anode rod is the ideal solution to this problem, because in addition to eliminating odour in a few hours, the anode rod stops the corrosion of your water heater and is guaranteed for 20 years.
