The best chemical is WATER, enough to keep all solids covered.

I asked a campground operator once- "what kind of holding tank stuff do you use?" They rent lots of rv's and have to clean them up afterwords. I now use this and am very happy:

WE use this

breakupplus.com

I read about it on another thread and bought some to try it. The wife liked this better than the other three or four types we have used. I just ordered 12 quarts while I was writing this post. That will last us for a very long time. The more you order the cheaper it gets. by orderering the 12qt package it is less than 8.00 a quart. We used to use the stuff you buy in Walmart and this works better for us.

This reminds me of conversations I have with my wife regarding hair coloring and moisturizer. Seriously.
My wife won't heat anything up in a microwave if it's in anything but a glass container because of harmful chemicals, won't use a plastic water bottle because of harmful chemicals, won't use any fertilizer that's not "organic" on her beautiful plants because of harmful chemicals.
After every shower, and every night, she applies moisturizer and who knows what other concoction to her skin. I've pointed out that MY skin is fine, and her skin is no different than MY skin ...so why apply bottles and bottles of goo, and PLASTIC bottles at that!
She says I just don't understand.
I say she's the victim of decades of marketing targeted at women to support a multi-billion dollar industry.
Black tank additives may not be multi-billion in size, but those folks make a hefty profit on selling a solution to a problem that they make you believe HAS to be solved.
I've never put anything but water in my system. I don't like chemicals or chemical smells, but more importantly, I don't like wasting money
If your system is working properly, meaning vents and Ptraps are all functional, I've never seen a need for any odor-masking additives in a black tank or gray tank.

Just my $.02 worth

I agree.
If/when everything in a RV sewer system, (vents, seals, traps, toilet), is
operating properly NO tank odor can/will get into a RV.
IMO sewage with any "RV tank chemical" added smells like perfumed sewage.
However I do use a cap full of liquid Rid-X in both tanks to prevent solids from building up, I use a cap full of liquid Rid-X in both tanks... (have been for 12+ years).
