Black Tank Treatment

I have been using this product for 3 years and find it to be the very best stuff out there to treat both black and grey water tanks. They are a local Texas company and their product is awesome. They are also having their annual sale right now. I have posted a link below to their website in case anyone would like to try the product.

Don, We had all noticed that you have been smelling better than you use to, but could not figure out what you were using. Now we know.

I gotta ask... why do you feel you actually "need" a black/gray tank chemical? hummmmm?

If you have an odor, you have a problem that needs attention. Masking an odor with chemicals is just a bandaid fix.

If your system is working correctly, no chemicals are needed, plain water will work just fine.

You obviously have not camped in Texas in the summer with 100 plus temps. Believe me when I say plain water won't work.

And George I am not taking baths in it - just pouring down my John but you're right I don't seem to stink as bad as I used to.


No Comment to Curtis.

No, not Texas, but i do live in the Mojave desert where temps of 115 is not uncommon. And believe ME, water does work just fine. Like I said, if you are experiencing an odor, your system is in need of attention and repair. Search out where the odor is coming from and you'll find the problem.

I agree!
If "tank odor", (either black or gray), is getting into the living area of any RV something needs FIXING.

Just for the record fellows - I don't have any problems with my black or grey tanks. That's because I keep them sparkling clean by using 4 oz of Breakout in my black tank and a capful in each of my grey tanks every time we camp. Not only does it keep them squeeky clean it breaks up the toilet paper and waste so it does not clog valves when draining.

But to each is own ! Smell that is !
