You probably hear claims about “environmentally friendly” household products and appliances regularly, as more Americans become conscious about using less, saving more and recycling. But can this apply to your septic system? As a matter of fact, yes it does. 

By nature, your septic system is already environmentally conscious. Conventional systems only have two major components: a septic tank and a disposal area. Accessories for those components are also becoming more environmentally conscious, as Simple Solutions Distributing’s Industrial Odor Control brand has replaced its disposable Wolverine Septic Vent Odor Filter with a more environmentally friendly, refillable filter. The Wolverine Cub is refillable by simply removing the rain cap and pouring in the new carbon.

“We were looking at replacing the disposable model and releasing a new economically priced filter but knew we wanted to be more eco-conscious about the impact on our planet,” Industrial Odor Control President Andrew McGibbon says. “Making these refillable was the sensible and responsible thing to do.”

The Wolverine Cub’s housing is made of sturdy Schedule 30 PVC. It installs in minutes with nothing more than a 10 mm wrench. When the filter arrives, the carbon comes in a separate bag with the top off the filter. Pour the carbon in the top, place the rain cap with perforated disc on the top of the filter, line up the bolts with the holes in the filter body and screw them in. The carbon can easily be changed by reversing the process.  

The Wolverine Cub is available in 1-, 2-, 3- or 4-inch models. It holds 1 pound of Norit Darco Sulfursorb Plus, activated carbon designed to adsorb hydrogen sulfide in a high-humidity atmosphere. This is the same carbon used by Industrial Odor Control in their industrial filters for the municipal, wastewater and other industries. 

According to McGibbon, homeowners will find the life span of the filter varies based on each situation. “That said, most homeowners will find they get two to three years out of the filter before having to replace the carbon,” he says. As long as excess activated carbon is kept in its sealed bag, it remains effective indefinitely. 866-667-8465;
