If that doesn't work, flush the tank, fill with fresh water and add a cup or two of a septic tank enzyme treatment such as Roebic 57, Roebic 67, or Rid-Ex. Let the enzymes work for 4-5 days and then flush the tank out again. The two Roebicn products are excellent cleaners and RidEx ain't shabby either.

I found the following:

Before I ever saw the product I built a home made version of the Valterra Master Blaster... I like mine better as the master blaster Nozzle looks "Fragile" (mine is more rugged) 1/2 inch PVC, cap the end drill a 1/4 inch hole in the side of the cap.. Mine I put an elbow and drilled the center of the cap (Closer to the Valterra Design)

I "AIM" this toward the sensors and ... Well. Clean happens.
,

2: RV-Twister by Camco.. Looks like it shoudl work as well.. Hoever success has been.. Less than I'd like.

3: Geo method.. I've had 50% success with this one.

The GEO method. After flushing out the black water tank and adding 5 gallons of fresh water also add one cup of laundry detergent and one cup of water softner. Try it and you will like it. It puts all the greasy solid human waste into suspension and makes it easy to flush out. Cheap, easy and essentially no harsh chemicals. It also helps with the odors.

My Black tank always shows 1/3 to 2/3 full. I have a Sani Con system, it run it and at first 'stuff' comes out, then nada, but the tank will still show 1/3 to 2/3 full. I like the idea of the laundry detergent and water softener, think it will work as well through the Sani Con?
