Think nothing of it SYE, FT Turbs didn't read it either, Ms. Amy had to read the instructions to him and tell him what the pictures meant. Good thing there weren't any numbers over 15 to count either.

I held a meeting with my fellow campers and decided what could go wrong ?
Now before I go any further several of my "friends" also bought a kit.
One of which whom shall remain anonymous we'll call him "blue streak"
Installed his while ms Amy and I were at the SABRE factory tour.
Lets just say his install time took almost took longer than the 2 hour factory tour we took.
Ok back to my theory.
So "my" install took just short of "8" minutes to be exact, "would have taken less time had I not forgot one tool" "bbc"
Anyway I filled the container and finished out the week and the the corresponding weekend with just straight "blue streak" chemical.
By the way it has a nice baby powder smell which is an a+ right from the start.
Ok so we've been home now about a week and the blue streak chemical is down enough that I can start adding my geo-method albeit all liquid now.
I added 2 cups of liquid softner and 2 cups of liquid detergent and mixed the two well with a cup of water.
Then poured that into the blue streak holding tank then filled the toilet bowl about 5 times and emptied.

So over the next few camping trips I'm going check the status of my sewer dumps and see how well if it all this works.

I've instructed the family to use plenty of water with each flush as with every flush the geo method is installed via the blue streak dispenser and I'll see what happens.

I have a 42 gallon black tank and even on a long holiday weekend, we have yet to fill it.

I'll report back soon.

Hey Turbs,
I have never seen any updates to how the geo method worked. Also, I wanted to know how you are going to winterize this portion of the system.

We've only campped twice since goshen so I never got a good feel for its effectiveness.

I've been wondering about winterizing as well.

I'll research it today.

Had ours about 3 yrs. Use about 25% Blue Streak, rest water. Odor is a little strong for our taste. Winterizing is expensive, we take ours to Tucson.

It cost me 10 bucks and 20 min to winterize mine.
I spend more than that on lunch in Wells, NV.

Here is what their site says to do to winterize it!!

Q: How do I winterize the Blue Streak Dispenser?
A: Run the chemical level low [ 1 to 2 inches] in the reservoir and winterize your unit as you would normally. To remove chemical from the reservoir; unscrew the tank from the wall leaving tubing attached to tank and pour chemical into another container.

Hey, I found it, TOWTA had put it in a cabinet in the 5er. Now, I'll have to mount it tomorrow. Hope I don't have the same problems "I gotta poop" had in Goshen.
