This bad smell in your hot water is most likely caused by a problem with the anode rod in your water heater. Replacing the anode rod with an aluminum/zinc alloy anode rod will usually take care of this problem. Unless you are experienced with working on water heaters, this a job that should be done by a qualified tech.
