I just moved to BC a year ago. Before I moved I bought a large tub that will last me for a couple years or more. The dealer delivered to my house.
Not sure how to find a BC dealer but you can try to contact my former AB dealer or, I also see it sold on Amazon.com if you have access to a US shipping address.

My only problem with the GEO method is that sometimes, it is hard to find the liquid Calgon water softener... then when I do, I stock up and that drives DH batty... "what do we need that for?" But since I don't live in my MOHO... I have storage spots for it in the stick and brick.

I can highly recommend the least expensive product available - WATER, and always enough to keep all solids covered and solvent. No special soaps, TP, or holding tank products, or, as someone said about the geo method, "snake oil" remedies.

I was thinking the same thing. Don't think I want to eat it after it has been in the tank.

I have had great results with RV-Digest It. Hardly any smell and the paper is completely broken down. This winter we are camped in S Texas and use water softener because of the hard water. With out the softener here, the sensors start to scale up. Up in the NW however the water is soft enough that we don't need the softener.

I have been using the GEO system for years but never new it was called that until this thread. My tanks are clean when in storage and never stink.

We gave Happy Camper a try and it didn't seem to do anything that Ridex does. We use 3 cap fulls of liquid Ridex in the black tank right after we dump and have had no problems. About once or twice a year I get a couple of bottles of Theadford gauge cleaner and use as directed and the gauges start working fine again. We are full timing and the best thing I have found is don't dump your tanks until they are at least 1/2 to 3/4 full. When the gray water gauge starts acting up I use the fresh water gauge to judge where my gray water level is. I generally figure about 1/4 of my fresh water goes into the black water tank and the rest in the gray. Just find out how large your fresh, gray, and black tanks are and do the math. Like anything else in the RV world there's a bunch of ways to accomplish the same outcome. Oh ya get some drain screens for your kitchen sink. This will keep out amazing amounts of stuff out of your gray water tank. I should also note that we clean our dishes with Dawn so it's already mixed in the gray water tank. If your black water gauge is acting up just grab a flash light turn off the water and take a look. This works for us. Remember if you're going to be an RV'r you have to have multiple talents of mechanic, driver, plumber, electrician, and diplomate.
Good luck.
ps use RV TP and if the wife insists on Charmin have he place her moisten paper in a trash can and dump that in a dumpster.
