Hello: Years ago in my town there was a rash of smelly water in areas that never had experienced it before and didn’t really follow the usual rules we see in the making of smelly hot water. Going away on vacation is the biggest cause of smelly water I see. Turned out it was the softeners. They were being recharged in an area that had smelly water and it was contaminating plumbing systems all over town. If you only get odor when the softener is operating, it might be a clue 😎

Yours, Larry
