We just hooked up a woodmaster out door wood burner and we have noticed that our water now smells like rotten eggs, what could be causing this?

In a standard installation, there would be no connection between the two.
Your woodstove should not be connected to domestic water except a possible fill point, which would require an anti-backflow valve.

Could be a leak in the heat exchange for your hot water heater if you have one. Has the water level on the furnace gone down any?

Does hot and cold both have this smell. We used to get that smell out of hot water heater and we put in a water softener and got rid of it. This was way before we got the outdoor furnace. There should not be any way the the furnace water and good water could mix unless you have a leak

Are you using it to heat your hot water?? if so the increase in temp might be doing something with the anode rod in water heater.
