DIY carbon filter

Postby paperghost » Tue Mar 29, 2016 9:21 am

Hi All here is how I created my own carbon filter rather than paying $200 to replace the one in my boat below are the parts I used and the prices ($46 in total) and very cheap to refill.

Have you got a pic?

And why do you need a carbon filter for your boat?

The suspense is killing me. I have visions of an exploding charcoal filter on the end of a HP compressor!

Surely not, but makes a great mental image.

:( If it's the same reason as I did this, it's to prevent the whiff from the sullage tank escaping..
