Water stinks in bathroom sink only

The water in my bathroom just reeks of rotten eggs. I have no issues with any of the other two sinks. The smell dissapates after running the water for several seconds but is still there. This is with both hot and cold. It doesn't matter if I'm on city or fresh water. I had issues with the hot water tank so that has been flushed too. Any suggestions? Thanks, Randy

If you have a washer/dryer option installed and never use the washer, this may be your issue. I had the same stinky water on my SOB's bath faucet. The washer plumbing was T'd to the bathroom sink's plumbing. When I cracked open the washer faucet, it reeked of stale water. The smell went away after flushing the line, but came back a few months later. I capped the washer lines at the bathroom sink area as we never had interntions of a washer / dryer. Smell never returned.

Interesting. I'm having the same issue- rotten eggs smell with just my hot water tap in the bathroom.

We ran bleach through most things and it only knocked things back a little- we did NOT include the washer/dryer lines or water heater itself.

Stinky bathroom sink water was / is pretty common on some Keystone products with what I described above. The rank water that just sits and sits in the washer line leaches into the bath sink faucet and "boy howdy" does it stink. Sanitizing the water lines is good practice, but doesn't help if you overlook an unused washer line. If you'll never use that line ... cap it and be done once and for all.

Check under sink if you have an air admittance valve that could be defective....

As said above, put bleach into hot water tank, as much as possible. I pour it into the drain on the HW tank. Fill it up with water, let sit for a day if possible, then run it through your water lines, including outside shower. Empty the tank, fill it up, drain and then fill it up again. Run fresh water through the water lines also. I would also recommend putting bleach into your water hose that you use for city water hook up.

Many times the rotten egg smell in hot water comes from a reaction with the anode in the heater. Here is an article on the problem: How to Fix Rotten Egg Smell in your Water
