You have to watch mixing chemicals witht the Calgon water softener. I mixed a capful of Calgon and an orange RV waste treatment chemical I bought at Wally World and Mr. Wizard would have been proud of the chemical reaction. It turned into a gooey crystalline substance that stuck to the side of the bucket. Of course when you read the direction on treatment bottle it says "do not mix with any other chemical".

What is the purpose with the extra blade valve ?? Seems like that would hamper the connection when twisting on the Flush King ??

1 thing that has developed on my flush kit is that the anti-syphon valve has started to leak when dumping the tank, resulting in some black water leaking to my driveway. I remedy that by cutting a small flow on the fresh water hose while dumping.....just enough to put some pressure on the anti-syphon valve.

The Flush King and similar products like mine probably don't do a lot for an entire tank rinse, but should help with buildup and blockage around the discharge line.
