When you turn on your shower, you expect to come out of it smelling clean and fresh. However, due to certain problems with your water heater, you can end up with hot water that smells like rotten eggs. If this has happened to you, call on RJ Graham Plumbing today. We can handle all of your hot water heater issues in Mokena.
Bacteria that’s present in some water supplies can react with the anodes in your water heater to create hydrogen sulfide gas – the gas that unfortunately smells like rotten eggs. Certain chemical treatments can help with the bad smell, but it’s important that you don’t try to undertake a major plumbing project on your own. A water heater consists of many pipes and connections, not to mention gas or electricity as a heating source, and unless you really know what you’re doing, it’s best to call a professional. The team at RJ Graham will thoroughly inspect your water heater to see what’s causing the rotten egg smell, and suggest the best solution for your problem.

We want you to enjoy your showers and baths, not spend your time worrying that stinky water is going to come pouring from the faucet. We can replace anodes and check the pipes on your water heater, giving you peace of mind and odorless water every time you turn on the tap.
