Kitchen sink smelling


My moms kitchen sink drains smells like sulfur when she runs water. We smelled the water, and there is no smell. Any ideas? Thanks

Re: Kitchen sink smelling


Is there a garbage disposal/dishwasher attached to sink drain?

If you are sure it's not coming from the tap water, then try pouring some bleach or bioclean down the drain, let sit for awhile, then flush with hot water. If that doesn't work, take the traps apart and clean them. Smell may be coming from DW drain line if one is attached, that can be cleaned as well. Kitchen sinks are notorious for stinky traps/drain lines.

If sulfur smell is coming from your tap water, then you have issues with your well or water heater.
