I have a septic system and lift station with an open vent pipe about 3 feet off the ground. As can be expected, I often get a smell from this vent if I'm in my back yard. I've been looking at different filters that can be installed over the vent pipe to control the odor. I was wondering if these filters really work and if so which type works the best? Or, is there a better way to control the odor?
The vent pipe passes through the top of my lift station, so when I have to open the cover I guess I could remove the vent line, but I think a long vent line would look weird sticking up high in the middle of my yard. If I had it my way, I'd get rid of the protruding vent pipe all together.
