I do not plan on drinking the water, even after rinsing the tank. We do like to shower if possible in the camper at the lakes and it would be really nice if you could add a solution to the tank and get soft water for the DW? Funny how everything revolves around her, yet she doesn't seem to notice that little fact!!! LOL If you can't use it for that is there something that can just be added to the tank when you are loading the fresh water in?
My DW uses Calgon in the washing machine. On the bus and at the house. I don't see why you couldn't use it for bath water?

I use two capfuls of the liquid Calgon after each black tank dump. I have not had any problems purchasing Calgon on the road.

I don't believe that it does anything for smell. I does soften the water in the tank and when dumping it is a lot easier getting that clear stream to come out when flushing. It's like it coats the sides for easier flushing, that's all.

The valves seem to like it also.

Happy trails.
