Pine Sol in Gray n Black Holding Tanks

I met a fellow RVer who told me he only uses Pine Sol in his Holding Tanks. Any one heard of this practice n is there any negatives?

That is what I put in mine. I like the smell and so far it keeps everything really clean. Not an expert just a camper.

I'm not sure what effect it will have on the rubber seals in your tank drain valves. Might be worth checking in to.

How long have you been doing it for, ie: months, years? Thanks for the reply

Rusty
I was in CampingWorld and talked to them, but couldn't get a straight answer, only, "We have this product or that product". Thanks for the reply Rusty

I have been using pine-sol for about 5 years. If you look on some boondocking blogs there are reports of using pine-sol for much longer with great - clean - results. All I can report is my experience.

Thanks for the input Cobra1, I'm going to give it a try. If you have been using 5 yrs n no problems I'm safe.

I used Pinesol in my bucket (dry) toilet for a long time. Lysol too :-)
