A.O. Smith 50 Gal water heater....Gas Smell/CO detector


Live in a condo unit and after taking long, hot showers or if both showers are in use, the utility closet that contains the water heater has a strong gas smell which also sets off the Carbon Monoxide detector. After about 5-10 minutes both the gas smell as well as the detector stops and goes away.

What could be causing this and hoe do you fix it???

Use less hot water.
One shower at a time and shorter time under the water.
