Before we head out to our next stop, I put a healthy amount (about 1/8 to 1/4 cup) of blue Dawn Dishwasher Soap down the toilet along with a gallon of water or so. then when we get to our next location, we empty the tank. You'd be surprised at the amount of "stuff" that comes out. It works great! We use it also in our Galley and Grey tanks as well. Finally get our sensors to register empty.

No. Liquid. I never looked for powder, I use the liquid.

Meijer stores in the Cincinnati area are carrying the liquid Calgon. I bought a bottle there about 3 weeks ago.

Remember the ad copy, "if it won't come clean with super clean, it won't come clean".

Purple power is exactly the same, but cheaper. Works great on tires.

OC, do you use Super Clean and Pinesol in the grey tank, too? My grey tank sensors aren't getting cleaned using the Geo Method.

We use PineSol and Calgon Bath Beads. My wife mixes 7 cups of PineSol with 7 cups of water, and then adds 1 cup of Calgon Beads. You can get everything at Walmart.

Calgon bath beads and Calgon water softener (commonly used in the GEO method) are two completely different things.

Not saying your method doesn't work... just saying.

Bath beads ingredients:
Sodium Chloride, Sodium Bicarboante, Sodium Sesquicarbonate, Sodium Carbonate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Water (Aqua), Fragrance (Parfum), Mineral Oil/Paraffinium Liquidium/Huile Minerale, Isopropyl Palmitate, Sodium Polyphosphate, Cocamidopropylamine Oxide, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Asparticacid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Tocopheryl Acetate, Red 33 Lake (CI 17200), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090).

Water softener active ingredients: zeolite and polycarboxylate
