Filter for Florida water (sulphur smell)

I would appreciate recommendations for a water filter that will address the sulphur smell in tropical water supplies. Tired of smelling like rotten eggs after a shower.

Looking for an inline filter for the supply line.

Carbon filtration may work for bad odors. You might try something like this.

I haven't noticed a sulfur smell but I almost always use this filter:

That said, most if not all of the places I camp have city water supplies. Years ago I rented a house with a shallow well. The sulfur odor was not so much noticeable after a shower but it sure screwed up iced tea. The research I did then said you couldn't filter it out. It looks like there may be solutions now. Out of curiosity I looked around and found this:

Most of those systems are large and expensive, probably not for trailer use. Here's another source:
Since you mentioned showers, is it mostly on the hot water? The second link mentions an anode rod in a water heater can cause the problem. MOst Atwood RV heaters don't have one - what do you have?

Good luck.
