    HOLDING TANK VENT HOSE - FILTER-gctid814323

    Hello All;

    Here in Florida, my holding tank takes less than a day to start reeking when the head is flushed. I do not have a filter on the vent hose nor a loop in the hose to restrict air flow. I have been looking at other posts and videos on the DIY and manufactured carbon filters that reduce or eliminate odor. My vent hose is aprx 30" in length, metal reinforced flex and has an inside diameter of 1" (one). Pretty large compared to the others that are out there although it appears not to be uncommon. The pipe does not lay on the tank and is not close to another pipe or hard surface.

    Here is my problem; If I put a filter in the hose, how best to stabilize it without damaging the tank to hose fitting? I'm told to loop the pipe as it will help with the odor problem but I believe this may just restrict the air flow.

    PICs are below vent pipe is in the forefront. Thanks for looking and comments.

    You can install the filter anywhere in the vent line for ease of mounting the filter. Personally I do not have a filter nor an upwards loop to the vent line (5/8 ID) no stink either. You sure the vent is clear?
