Question Toilet Stained - Help

Background: Our Adventurer has been sitting for a couple of years due to some health issues. The surface of the toilet bowl has become discolored. I believe itís calcium build up (?) Iíve always kept it full of water so the o-rings/gaskets donít dry out. SeaLand/Dometic recommends their cleaner or Bartenders Friend which Iíve used with so-so success. I purchased a drill-mounted brush and scrubbed the wholly crap out of it and was able to remove 3/4 of it.

Question: can someone recommend a cleaner/solution that I can use THAT WILL BE SAFE FOR THE HOLDING TANK?

ThanksÖDan

If it's calcium, use vinegar or CLR (Calcium Lime Rust) remover. Both are safe to use.

Second vote for CLR in most grocery stores

Is it a plastic bowl or ceramic? If ceramic, you can use a mild solution of muratic acid. Otherwise CLR is your best bet

Agree with above CLR (long soak) or acid (with gloves and wiped with a sponge). To keep this from being a repeat performance instead of leaving the bowl filled with water just put a couple glugs of mineral oil in there which will keep the seal "wet" and it won't evaporate.
