What Causes A Smelly Sink

Bad Odor Kansas City, KS WHY DOES MY SINK SMELL LIKE ROTTEN EGGS? It is not uncommon for homeowners to encounter unpleasant odors in their household sinks or water, and when they do, they want to go to the source of the problem and find out what is causing their water or sinks to smell unpleasant. If you are experiencing an unpleasant odor in all of your water faucets, then you most likely have a problem with the main water supply.
