360 Siphon Vent

IMG_1841IMG_1842The 360 Siphon RV holding tank vent cap eliminates odors from the source — the holding tanks — and exhausts them out the roof vent before they have a chance to invade the RV living space. By design, the patented 360 Siphon can only create an updraft, expelling odors and fostering an oxygen-rich environment to speed up waste breakdown. Even environmentally-friendly tank additives can take up to 48 hours after use to fully oxygenate a standard holding tank. The 360 Siphon acts immediately after installation in any wind condition (with or without a breeze) to provide the ideal environment for proper decomposition, so caustic chemicals and perfumed cover-ups are no longer needed.

The 360 Siphon can be refitted to any RV in less than 20 minutes with a screwdriver and a putty knife (to scrape off any old sealants). The 360 Siphon replaces factory-installed vent caps and is a permanent, one-time, maintenance-free application.

We have an RV for over 10 years now.   And this year we finally found a campground where we can put both the RV and our boat for a reasonable price.   But we started to notice something with our RV when we would come after a week away from it – the smell of the sewer.   It was bizarre because we never really experience this in the past.   It was really bad for my husband who had trouble sleeping the first night due to the smell.  Me?  I guess my nose is not as sensitive as his since I didn’t really smelled anything wrong.  On of our kids also smelled it – the others not so.   So obviously this child of ours inherited the sense of smell of dad.

After some research on the internet, my husband found a video explaining how the 350 siphon worked.   We wondered if it would be as fabulous as it sounded.  So I decided to approach the company in order to see if we could review two 360 siphon – one for the black tank pipe and one for the grey tank pipe.   Within a week I have received the package and we were looking forward in installing them.

Here’s picture of the tip of our RV before the installation which clearly show the two pipes.

Turns out that my in-laws were coming camping with us when we were planning to install these.   My father-in-law is a very handyman and loves doing that kind of jobs.   So both him and my husband climbed on the top of the RV in order to remove the older caps and install the 360 siphons.  The installation took about 40 minutes or so.  And the new 360 siphons were immediately put to the test.


Did we see a change?

We did. On the day of the installation, my husband said that he had smelled a difference but the real test would be when we leave the RV for an extended period of time and see if there was a smell when we come back.  When I mention extended period of time, I mean closing the RV because we are going home and come back a week or two later.  So when we left on Tuesday and came back on the Friday, I was curious to see if my husband would smell the sewer or not.   Turns out that there were no smells whatsoever and he was very pleased with the results.   The next day he even pushed the test even more but keeping the toilet open for 5 to 10 minutes to see if the smell would bothered us.   Believe it or not nothing came out of the hole – NO SMELL AT ALL.  Complete success for the 350 siphons!

Consequently, we are highly recommending the 360 siphons for all RVers.  It will make a huge difference and make you stay more interesting whether you stay put at one place or travel through the country with your RV.

The 360 siphon has an universal fit 5 1/2” diameter by 2.5” height.  Installation is very easy to do with clear instructions included in the package.   I also recommend that you get one for the black tank and one for the grey one. 

Price 29.99$ US.
