Liquid or drop ins??

Anyone have what they believe is the best deodorizer to use in their black water tanks? What are you using, liquid or drop ins?

Usually liquid - Campa Chem; however, during the hot summer, we use one of each (liquid and powder packet). No worries!

I have tried them all (well, almost). Years ago, I started with liquid Thetford Aqua-Kem, then tried so many other different "natural" treatments, home concoctions and enzyme treatments. After all of that, I went back with the Thetford liquid Aqua-Kem and have stayed with it.

Camco drop ins. If we are more than a week, I'll probably use 2.

Like everybody else we have tried several products and Odorlos works best for us. Never any bad smells and helps keep the valves lubricated.. We prefer the liquid form.

They have it at camping world and Amazon:

I have been using Unique Natural Product since 2013. We are full timers and we usually get a week between black tank dumps. Unique comes in a 124 oz bottle from Amazon at 28 bucks and you only use 2 oz per treatment. I've been very pleased and no smell.
