water heater odor killer

Hello - I finally had a plumber come yesterday and install the spin-down hot water filter I got from you in order to add Hydrogen Peroxide to our hot water tank in order to solve our odor and stain problem.

Installation was easy for him and I loaded it with the hydrogen peroxide - one time - and the odor and stains disappeared immediately.

Immediately - like magic. Thanks so much - we have been living with this nightmare for a couple months now and were so hopeful it would work. I had no idea it would work this well. Thanks again.

We were quoted literally 2K to filter out sulfur in a hot water heater. Replaced the anode rod with aluminum one and installed this device. Used one shot of hydrogen peroxide and the smell has been gone for almost two months!
