Stinky water

We have iron rich water In our home. To combat it, we have a salt softener system and also a greensand system. Recently we flushed the hot water heater, changed our adnode rod etc to rid the water of the sulfur smell. It worked for a while but the smell is back. Do you think I should put some hydrogen peroxide in the in-line filter to flush the hot water heater? Is bleach a better option? Any other suggestions? We have had this smell for years and I can't seem to control it b

If the odor is in the hot water only the water heater/anode rod are the likely source. However if the odor is in the cold water as well you likely have hydrogen sulfide in your water supply.

If the water heater is the source then the information here may be helpful:
