Black Tank Cleaner Recipe

Hi all, what is the recipe for black tank cleaner? I have seen it on this forum in the past so I know it's out there among you all. Thanks

If you are talking about the GEO method, *HERE* is their web site.

From the get go; water, followed by water and finally followed by more water.

I use the Blue Streak and mix equal parts of SuperClean, Pinesol and water. When we leave a campground to go home, I use the tank sprayer until I get clear water, close the valve and dump about 1/2 gal of SuperClean, 1/2 bottle of Pinesol and about 2 gal of water, tow home and leave it until we go camping again. No smell. Keep water/SuperClean/Pinesol in the toilet so nothing dries out. Flush about once a month if I remember.

This is what I do routinely, then after closing the valve I add a couple gallons of water mixed with Happy Camper which I find really helps to break up the solids for more efficient dump. A couple times a year I do the Geo method. We are looking into a 5th wheel and when we finally decide and get one, I will be replacing the toilet with a composting toilet, in large part to eliminate the wasteful amount of water required to do a thorough cleaning.

I use the hamster method

I put 2 hamsters in 2 hamster balls with brill o pads attached to the outside. In between trips I let them run around in the black tank to clean it.

We've used the Geo Method for several years and never had any issues. Unfortunately, finding Calgon Water Softener is getting very difficult here in Ontario, Canada and ordering off Amazon.ca is very expensive. So when the current supply of Calgon runs out I'll have to either try OC's method (we can get Super Clean and Pinesol readily) or I'll have to pick some up in the US when I cross the border to pickup one of my Amazon.com orders.
