An issue that many RV parks or LCSS system owners encounter is the odor issue. Many RV drivers, or uninformed septic tank users pour chemicals down their drains, which end up in the RV Park septic tank. A 15,000 gallon tank with 20 to 30 RVs who are not instructed in proper septic tank use can run into a real problem. Adding urea to mask the ammonia smell, coming from the LCSS septic system will only hide the problem and not fix the issue.
Often times a loose cap, or a main vent that is too short is the cause, providing visitors to the RV park with clear instructions, including photographs may help your RV visitors change their ways.
