Is Your RV Making You SICK? Causes, Symptoms & Solution
This is going to be a serious discussion about the serious problem of the Holding Tank gas known as Hydrogen Sulfide. Every RV Holding Tank has this gas. It’s the result of bacterial breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. It is highly toxic, flammable, slightly heavier than air and smells like rotten eggs. It quickly deadens the sense of smell leaving the person unaware of its presence. It’s a Broad-Spectrum Poison that most often affects the Central Nervous System. Symptoms range from mild to severe depending on concentration and exposure time. Children experience more severe symptoms than adults under similar conditions.
Prolonged exposure to Low or Moderate levels of Hydrogen Sulfide may result in the following: Skin irritation, shortness of breath, irritability, poor balance, poor memory, confusion, eye irritation, sore throat and cough, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, nasal and lung congestion, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting.
Exposure to High and Lethal levels of Hydrogen Sulfide can cause difficulty with breathing, low blood pressure, blurred vision, unconsciousness, convulsions, seizures, and coma. Prolonged exposure at these levels can cause respiratory paralysis and death in as little as 30 minutes.
Fortunately the level of Hydrogen Sulfide in RVs seldom exceeds the Low to Moderate level, but it makes me wonder just how many RVers are unnecessarily experiencing nagging health issues that are being misdiagnosed and mistreated with expensive drugs that include their own unwanted side effects and problems. If you can smell Holding Tank odors, even deodorizers, you’re breathing Hydrogen Sulfide. Remember, the unpleasant odors are the least of your problems. The real danger here is what the Hydrogen Sulfide exposure is doing to your health.
The 360 Siphon helps protect you from this serious health problem by creating an updraft that removes odors, carbon dioxide and Hydrogen Sulfide from the Holding Tank, and replaces them with fresh oxygen. By increasing the oxygen level in the Holding Tank, it assists the digestive enzymes that breakdown the waste material, thus reducing the amount of Hydrogen Sulfide that is produced.
A one-time investment of 360 Siphons for your RV will permanently protect you and your family from this serious problem, and keep you all healthy, safe and having fun.
