Re: Replacing "bladder" in the head?

Those of you who use the Vetus bladder holding tank, do you have any problems with leaving the waste in the tank for more than a day? Vetus's web site says the tanks are for short-term (1 day) use only. We're cruisers and don't just go from pump-out to pump-out.

Mine is a 25 gal Nauta and works fine. Certainly do not pump out every day. I installed a second vent line when I put the system in. Good venting is supposed to be the key & I have had good luck (so far!) for 7 years.
