That's a great sign. The little chompers are really doing their thing now!

Happy Camper looks to be the same as RV Digest It. Cool, another sourse for good stuff

Doesn't look like Happy Camper can be bought locally, but their shipping is reasonable.

We've been using Happy Camper & GEO method for years (pretty much ever since we got the RV) and have been pretty happy. We do back-flush the tank every other dump or so too. Still have functioning sensors.

I hope Rid-X does as good. It's been in the black tank since Sunday.

Thx, wa8yxm. Good to know I didn't waste my money on the powder. Hope it works, as I really don't want to try to find the sensors or take the wet compartment panels off.

Re factory rinser system: Same result
Replaced it with TORNADO: Same result but it does do a better job.

Built basically the same sprayer you used, different size hole (I think 1/16" larger or perhaps 1/32th" it was the first drill bit I grabbed) this works about 2/3 of the time.

Thanks for the thanks.

The powder quickly dissloves, and then it's liquid. That is why there is basically no difference

+1 for 5 Star Happy camper. Happy Camper - Odorless Holding Tank Treatment Black and Grey Water
We have used it for years and have had no complaints what so ever.

It didn't dissolve in the ~20 minutes after I put it in a gallon jug and added warm water and sugar. There was about 1/2 of brown coarse sandy stuff in the bottom. I did shake it up as I poured it down the toilet. I'm sure it's doing it's job, but with the sensors being higher up on the tank, I would have felt better if I had used the liquid.

After I drain it, I'm still going to use my onboard or home made sprayer if it is still on 2/3.

The brown stuff is just wheat bran. It's just used as a carrier for the bacteria and enzymes. It dosen't disolve, but does get eaten after the bacteria get wet and begin multiplying.

Not sure I understand the question, but I'll take a shot. If you mean the liquid Rid-X, the bacteria and enzymes are suspended in water, glycerin, fragrance and FD&C Blue no. 1

We started using the Unique Digester, cleaned our sensors up after 2 tanks full. We really like it. You can also purchase it thru Amazon & the shipping is cheaper.

I'll by that, but they must be a lot finer critters.
