Was having issues with the black tank not completely emptying, prior to starting a 120 mile trip last week end, filled the black tank to one third, did the GEO and a cup of Calgon as well. Added more water to the black tank as soon as I got o CG. Watched the dump through my clear elbow, WOW the stuff that came through. Tank sensors seen to be clear all weekend. We carry drinking water, for ice, for coffee from home filter water. Most CG in this area have high linme content which effects the water taste bit. Will start using Calgon in tanks as well. Had to go to second Walmart to find Calgon by the water softners!

Hold the horses here....nobody is suggesting installing a water softener and using water softener salt. Calgon is simply a jug of liquid water softener people can use in their wash, comes in jugs similar to laundry detergent, which is where you will find it in the dept store. Pour a cup of it into the black tank via the toilet.

As far as liquid water softener, I used Calagon, comes in half gallon jug. Walmart is only box store I found it, Amazon does carry it but at a higher cost The only other softener I know of is the powered form for hot tubs. That would be okay, but I would mix it to get it dissolved prior to adding it to the tank. Might be a good solution for space, pack each shot in a ziplot bag. I bought a 10 pound Box a couple of years ago, still using it. The liquid form is easier to use since I am adding the rest of the liquids in the GEO mix.

Our local stores only carry Calgon in the powder form, but when I get over to the Walmarts in ND, they carry the liquid form...powder will work just an extra step to dissolve it prior to use.
