Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy THE ANSWER to your septic smell problems! REALLY!
We moved into our home one year ago right after the previous owners installed a brand new septic tank. We noticed the horrible odor right away. We called the septic tank installer out and it was explained to us that the smell was because the tank was new and we needed to add Rid-X. We did. No change. Then it was explained to us that the smell was because our house was in a canyon and the septic gasses have no where to go. It was embarrassing explaining the smell to guests every time we had an outdoor party. My husband did A LOT of research and discovered Sweet Stacks. He easily added an adaptor fitting and installed three on the vents on our roof and instantly...PROBLEM GONE! We had a very large party outside the following weekend and I was thrilled...nothing but the fragrance of orange blossoms. SWEET! I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Works Great and the septic odor was gone after installation
The filter was easy to install and was delivered on time. At this time it is hard to say if the filter will perform over a range of inversion layers and wind conditions, time will tell.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mbuild So far, the air is sweet
The filter is working as designed, no more smell drifting down to ground level. The material is ABS whereas the vent stack is PVC (as are most recent stacks in this state). Had to buy a new can of transition glue to mate the two. Some time ago I switched to 100% PVC. Also, the dry fit over 3" PVC pipe was a bit loose - especially in comparison to a standard NIBCO fitting. Similar filters go for twice the price - so while the install and quality were "knocked" a bit in the rating for the above reasons, the overall rating is still 5 star in my opinion.
Its been installed a month. Waiting to see how the filter holds up.

Took a little time for me to figure out what was wrong with the septic system on our new construction. Nothing was. We were smelling septic gas due to the fact our building is located in a small valley and surrounded by trees. The venting pipe on the roof was expelling gas down to the yard. It took longer to find this product and order it than it did to install it. Very easy. It was working within a minute! We could not be more happy and relieved. Purchased another for my parents who occasionally have the same problem.

Eliminated the septic odor so we can use the back yard again. Totally works as advertised. Less expensive than others I have seen. Highly recommend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by slowpro Installation info inaccurate
I recently ordered 30 of your sweet air vent caps for a local school.
In your literature and on the box you explain; solvent weld the fitting to 3" and 4" schedule 40 pipe. Your 3" size is actually a smaller diameter than 3" sch 40 PVC and there is not a pipe or coupling that will fit tight enough to solvent weld. After trying several different connectors I found that your 3" is actually copper tube size which is rare for drains these days. I had to use a Fernco clamp that went from 3" copper tube size to 3" sch 40 pipe these clamps were an unplanned added cost. . Please either restate what pipe you are able to connect to or change the connector size on your product to actually fit 3" PVC.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin Performs as advertised but may cause restricted venting
The vent stack filter does eliminate outdoor odors as advertised and I would have given it 5 stars if I hadn't experienced the recent temperature dip into the single digits and teens recently. When the air temperatures dip below 20 degrees for any length of time the drain vent seem to be restricted and tub drain siphoning occurs when flushing a toilet. When the temperature goes back up this problem goes away. I live in Northern Georgia so this should only happen a few times a year (and I have 2 inch pipe for my vent stack which some would say is not adequate) but if you live in a cold climate this would be something to keep in mind. This makes sense as the holes in the plastic where the carbon sits are very small. I could see how any moisture (or even steam from a hot shower) could freeze and restrict venting. If we have more cold days I might drill a few larger holes in the plastic to help with flow.
