Just saying.
Check Home Hardware for Calgon up here in Canada; this is where I found it in NL.

Or, do we just keep the black tank valve closed and the gray water open until the day before leave and then close it allowing it to fill up in order to flush the black tank when we leave? Or, do we not connect the hose, leave both valves closed and the just dump like normal at the site? I'm so glad I happened upon this thread! Love this site!!
We connect our hose and keep valves closed, emptying the gray as necessary. On the day we are leaving we make sure to fill the gray tank and empty only after flushing the black tank.

X2.. A private shower and toilet is the reason we bought our trailer(s) or we would still be tent camping. We always pay for full hookups when the sites are available. I usually have to dump the gray 2 or 3 times and the black twice on an extended weekend. We take long showers, plenty of water in the black tank and wash the dishes inside.
