How to Measure for Your Septic Vent Filter

How to Measure for Your Septic Vent Filter

All Wolverine Brand vent filters can be easily installed on any PVC, ABS, Copper or Cast Iron vent pipes. To ensure a proper fit, measure your vent pipe's outside diameter and use the following tables to decide which size is right for you. The size you measure will actually be slightly larger than the filter size you select. This is due to the fact that PVC is measured by the inside diameter of the pipe.
