If the vent was blocked enough to allow a break or rupture of the tank, the vacuum created when opening the drain would also cause a collapse of the tank. hardly ever would a tank rupture from being too full, though I have heard the support/strapping of tanks can allow this to occur.

SuperClean-Pinesol-water mixture and 2-3 packets of dishwasher soap.
It sounds like it will destroy any bacterial process in a septic system.

Dish soap works the best, that i found . I have also used 10 pounds of Ice and about 5 gallons of water after you dump and just drive home

I use about a cupful of Calgon powder and a few good squirts of Dawn Dish soap.

Your tanks are not a septic system. They're a holding tank.
