bad smell

I recently installed water in my work shop using copper tubing, when I run the water it has a sulphur smell. The water suppy is from my house, which is supplied by the city and does not have a smell at all. what could be causing the smell??

how lang ago did you install it and how soon after did it start to smell? also does it smell on both hot and cold?
If its on the cold side as well as the hot then try to run a chlorine and water mix through the piping. be sure you isolate the new that you will disinfect from the older line. If its only the hot side it could be the anode rod on the water heater.
