      I have a two year old system. The vent is only a few feet from our front door. Frequently we smell an odor near the front of the house. I know it is not the fied because it is 300 feet away. The roof design aids in a down draft if there is a breeze. Is there something I can add to the tank to eliminate the odor or make a modification to the vent (make it taller or install a charcoal filter)? Thanks for your assistance.

      You could try a charcoal filter but the tank does need to breath….. Perhaps extending the vent up to roof level…is your better bet. Insure that there is some sort of cap on top to prevent leaves, rain Ect. from going down the vent
