IF you are on well water you only need add about a 1/2 cup of bleach or so to your well at the well head and it will take care of the smell. Just do it as often as you need to. Might have your well head checked also - stuff may be growing at the top and can be taken care of by any well manager.

Hi - If you are on well water(?) it may possibly be that you have what is called "sulfur water" so the smell would actually be in your water. How does your water taste?

I understand there are water conditioners that will help this but will be expensive to buy and install (not for a renter!).

My brother had this problem at a house that he was fixing up to sell. A plumber told me that there is a metal rod inside the water heater that, if bad, will cause that rotten egg smell. Unfortunately I don't know the exact name of this rod - it's something like anta-rod - and I don't know how much it would cost to replace it. Good luck to you!
