New home built 2016 - roughly 1 year old
Issue: Egg smell in one sink in the bathroom - only place smell exists - only with cold water
Two sinks in the bathroom - other sink has no smell
Sink - Porcelain
Faucet - Moen
House cold water - PEX
Braided line from PEX to faucet
Tested and verified
No smell hot water
Disconnected cold water line from faucet and ran directly to bucket - smell is still there - so smell is not coming from sink or faucet
Other sink that I assume shares PEX line until it splits has no smell
At this time if the bathroom is sharing PEX up until it splits in the bathroom than the problem is somewhere between the split and the end of the braided line - going to remove the braided line tonight and see if that solves anything.
If PEX does not split and is a full run then there is something wrong somewhere in that run.
Why would I get that egg smell in a brand new house in a PEX line to a single sink?
If the smell is in the pex someplace how do I get rid of it? Do I have to shut off water and then try to drain out line and then flush it with chlorine or something - I think it would be really difficult to try to do that in reverse.
Thank you for any help!
