As to your options, why not simply consult with an attorney who specializes in real estate, he/she can better advise...

Seeing there is a difference in opinion on what the offer states, this is best answered by getting the advice of an attorney.

It appears that you gave a Notice to the Seller telling them what you wanted done. A Notice only gives the Seller notice based on the rights you have in the contract. If you used to standard language in the WB-41 Offer to Purchase the seller probably had the right to fix the problem and you did not have the right to tell them how it was to be "cured". Whether or not they really cured the problem may be a point of debate. Prior messages are correct - you need an attorney if you feel that you should not have to purchase the home.

Have you passed your inspection contingency? (or are there any other contingencies that would give you an "out" of the contract)?

If you were my clients, I wouldn't have had the sellers be responsible for addressing the problem. I would have buyers have the property inspected, and even hire your own plumber plumber to inspect it, and if you didn't like the answer, then you back out on the inspection contingency.

Hard for anyone here to say since we aren't involved in your transaction and haven't seen your contract.

This is how it is written in form titled Notice Relating to Offer to Purchase: Have a licensed plumber evaluate and repair as necessary the foul odor throughout the water.
It was explained to us if seller does not comply with requests written on this form, we will not be held to the house.

We had a home inspection and the inspector wrote in his report that a licensed plumber should assess and repair problems with foul smell coming from water. So that's what we asked to have done along with an electrician inspecting wiring and a few other minor things. Seller says she will comply with the other requests but did not hire a plumber. Our realtor said we are not allowed to hire our own plumber, only the seller can do that.
