Black tank rinser???

I'm thinking about buying and installing a Tornado tank rinser. Do they work? On a scale of 1-10 (easiest being a 1) How easy to install?

Installed one in our last 24' M/H. Looked at for more than a week before I had the nerve to drill a hole in the black water tank. Followed the instructions, took a deep breath & pulled the trigger on the drill. Installed it worked great, & solved the problem of bringing a dirty hose in the RV. The directions want you to install the unit in the top 2" of the tank to work best. You will have to see if you can get to that part of the tank with a drill.

I have a BIL who was a full-timer for years..and is now part-time for health reasons.......he knows about all there is to know about everything, and he says it's because he's made every mistake it RV'ing that it is possible to make..

He tells me he has installed them on his last units...and that they do work.

I saw another discussion where the poster said he hooked his up to a water hose when he first got the box shipped in.......and he felt the flow was a bit on the low side...so he drilled out each of the holes to make them a bit bigger.......I don't know if there is any downside to that....for instance, bigger holes mean bigger flow, but also less back pressure.......would that affect the way the rotor spins? I would want to answer that question before I drilled the holes bigger.
