Water can certainly help, but it sure isn't a cure-all for sensors.

I use the softner, simple green/dawn, and driving around for awhile method when mine act up and they are good to go for another couple of months. Even with fushing with a lot of water while stationery after every dump they still seam to act up after a couple of months. JM2C.

I am new to this web site. I spend a lot of my time on forest river forums, but I am pleased to find this site. My wife and I had a heck of a time with the odors with our holding tanks so we started doing some searching. We came across the Geo Method like mentioned earlier. We are awaiting the arrival of our new TT so we can utilize this method, sounds like its easy and cheap. Take the time to google The Geo Method I think everyone will find it interesting.

I am not sure about that, but it sounds like awhile. If you haven't already take the time to google it. I wish I would have found this before. Of course any dealer is not going to promote it because they can't sell all the worthless treatment stuff off the shelf.
