Gocoffeer, I'm wondering about the results of your tests, if you used commercial test kits, not sent to a lab. I realize how old this is but it is just as good a thread as any to ask: what test kits, by name, if any are people using to test for all bacterias? e coli? cholorsporidium? etc? I have searched off and on for three months but the majority of threads area about the chlorox sanitization method. Very few mention the Thetford washer/sanitizer product. None that I have found so far have mentioned any of the PurTest (product#5UZ79) or ProLab (Model TW120) tests for examples.

How long will water stay useful in the holding tank

They shoud have UV systems for RV's

Here you go:


I'm thinking about adding this to my current 2 filter system.

unless your pool kit tests for bacteria it wont help much
