A sincere thanks goes out to all those that insisted I replace these tanks. I considered for a few minutes that I would focus on other projects. Replacing the lines and hoping that this would have resolved the "smell". I am glad that those few minutes faded and I had a suspicion that there was greater problems. Holes in the tanks = end of life for them. I am sure that it had to do with lack of air movement under the tanks and water entering the ER. (under the tanks) I will be having a higher strip added to the underside of the tanks to correct this issue moving forward. Now to make the wife happy, eliminate gas smell (check), new carpet (check).
