I've been told it's possibly a bacteria growing in the spout or supply lines. Any insight or help you guys?

I'll second that Plumb-A-Holic. Click into the introductions area and tell us about yourself. It's kinda the way all of us "shake hands" and introduce ourselves.

Welcome to the site.

If it's from the hot side it's most likely from the anode in the water heater.

If you get it on both sides you may just have a sewer gas infiltration.

In addition, a plastic supply tube or a plastic faucet can grow bacteria, but it only stinks when you first turn it on. It'll be interesting to see what happens with the new faucets that have all-plastic waterways.
