Holding Tank Vent Filters

ARE YOU EXPERIENCING ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS?:

  • Do people run away from your boat when you flush the head/toilet?
  • Not getting invited to raft up with others?
  • Is your marina having a difficult time leasing the dock next to yours?
  • Are guests eager to get off your boat?
  • Is your boat surrounded by a foul odor?

If you answered yes to any of these, Big Orange can help.

Features:

Eliminates Odor:

Big Orange is connected to the vent line leaving your boats holding tank. Then, before any air can travel from your holding tank to the vent it must first pass through Big Orange. This let’s Big Orange do its work by removing the odor before it reaches you.

Big Orange works by passing the vent line air through a filter comprised of activated carbon pellets. Activated carbon is a special type of carbon that has been processed in a way that makes it extremely porous. In other words, the carbon pellets contain a vast number of tiny holes and valleys on and through them. So many little holes, in fact, that the effective surface area of just one gram of activated carbon is over 500 square meters!

The actual odor that comes from your holding tank is made up of tiny particles of various types. Since the holes and valleys in the activated carbon pellets inside of Big Orange are so small, the odor particles get stuck as they pass through the filter. This results in the odor becoming trapped inside of the filter, eliminating it from the air.

Special By-Pass Valve:

A potential danger of traditional vent line filters is that your holding tank could collapse when being pumped out. This happens because as the waste in your holding tank is removed, air must enter the holding tank. The way the air comes in is through the vent line.

Since the air needs to go through the filter, it is not able to come in as quickly as the pump is removing stuff from the tank. This causes the pressure to become unbalanced and the holding tank will collapse. It’s as if you were to suck the air out of a plastic pop bottle. When you suck the air out you decrease the pressure inside of the bottle, causing it to collapse.

Big Orange reduces this possibility by including a special by-pass valve to effectively "turn off" the filter so that you can empty the holding tank with no chance of collapse due to filter restriction.

Refillable Filter:

You may be aware that other holding tank vent filters also use activated carbon (although they don’t use as much). This may be true, however, when the filter stops working because all of the holes in the carbon pellets have been filled (which will happen sooner than with Big Orange) they make you go out and buy a whole new filter!

Instead, Big Orange holding tank vent filter has been designed to have a refillable filter chamber. This means that when the carbon pellets have been all used up you only need to buy a refill pack (at a much lower price) and refill the filter.

Easy Installation:

Big Orange has also been designed to be quickly and easily installed with minimal hassle. Big Orange offers an optional Filter Installation Kit which includes mounting brackets and hose fittings for the OEM filter along with detailed instruction sheet to eliminate any guesswork.

Big Orange Filter Reviews:

 The ‘OEM’ filter is a direct replacement for Sealand P/N 30931001 that is factory equipment in some newer models from SeaRay, Carver, Four Winns, Cruisers Yachts, among others. The ‘OEM’ filter is also great for boats that currently don’t have a filter and can’t fit an ‘Original’ filter (popular with sailboat owners).
