The Tank Mildew Smell in Hot Water Reply To: Mildew Smell in Hot Water

Hello, Try covering up the drain and overflow in a few sinks with plastic and then run hot water. Does the odor remain the same? I’d like to isolate possible sources and see if there is any change in the smell. Do you have chlorination or other treatment on your well? Shocking the well might also be something to look into. Tankless heaters should not be adding any odor to the water. Getting the water tested for any organics and bacteria might be useful too. 😉

Yours, Larry
