Sulfur smell in hot water only...

HI there! I just ran on to this website and you all look like a great bunch of folks. I was wondering about the problem of sulfur smell that occurs only in hot well water. I have heard that it has to do with the PH balance of the water and the reaction with some removable part of the hot water tank. I would like to know if this theory sounds right and if in the world do I remove the part in the water tank? Thanks for your input!

There is a stone rod inside the hot water tank that sometimes need replaced. not sure what it does, I think that is what thay are talking about. I have herd of people removing them. It can be removed by removing the power and pressure off the system and in the top of the tank you will find what looks like a plug. Unscrew it and there will be a long rod attached, replace it or plug the hole with a proper size pipe plug. put the covering back on and charge things back up. This may or maynot be what thay were talking about.

ST...since it's only happening in your hot water you might try a quick flush of the tank and see if that helps first. Sometimes sediments and minerals build up in the tank and while the cold water smells okay, the hot reeks. I had that problem.
