It smells the worst in the master shower. The master bath is the most used and first in line for the hot water. I can smell it at the other taps, but just not as potent.
I thought the same thing that if the anode is missing then it shouldn’t smell… but then I thought what if it corroded from the top and fell in the bottom of the tank?
I have bleach shocked my well twice and it works for a few weeks, then the smell comes back again.
I was really hoping I wouldn’t have to replace the heater as it is only 5 years old. Shouldn’t I be able to get another anode in it and have an attempt to save it?
