DrB—

I'm not a big fan of the vent line filters as they reduce the air flow and are a big part of why you need the vent line filter in the first place. If the holding tank has decent air flow, you get the good aerobic bacteria and no smell. If the tank has bad airflow—like when you have a filter in the line—you get the anaerobic bacteria...and a lot of smell... IMHO, you're better off with no filter and good airflow to the holding tank. It is cheaper in the long run, and reduces the chances of the hose permeating with nasty smelling stuff.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
