Device conceals septic vents

Problem

A homeowner in Sharon, Mass., spent thousands on a new porch and landscaping and wanted to disguise the 3-foot-tall vent pipe from the onsite system in the yard.

 

Solution

Kevin Orlando of All Seasons Septic Service in Stoughton suggested the Dirty Bird yard ornament or pedestal with birdbath from BS Design Corp., a concealment device with a serviceable charcoal filter that addresses odors. The unit comes in three colors to match any decor.

 

Result

The homeowner has a focal point instead of an eyesore and guests don’t realize it vents an onsite system. 866/968-9668; www.thedirtybird.com.

 

Filters bring back clientele

Problem

The owners of Tall Timbers Campground in Sussex, N.J., were losing business due to odors from a vented onsite system.

 

Solution

Septic Experts in Sussex installed a Puraflo peat fiber treatment system and teed Wolverine Brand activated carbon vent filters from Simple Solutions Distributing to 20 laterals servicing mobile homes. Workers installed Super Wolverine filters with solar fans on pump stations to circulate fresh air through the system, reducing gas concentrations and eliminating odors.

 

Result

After two years, the campground is odor-free and the filters are still using the original carbon. 973/846-7817; www.industrialodorcontrol.com.
