The actual name for the process of putting Calgon in the tank is the GEO method.

A cup of laundry detergent? That seems like a LOT!

Or is that a cup of water/detergent mixed?

Military Field ops has sort of spoiled me in that way. And I don't bag anything and carry it out either. If a bear can poop in the woods why can't I?

But I'm not bitter
I really have never heard of anyone having this issue. I'm pretty sure the campgrounds we stay in don't have a gang of marauding teens/adults pulling on dump valves.

Depends where you live. Up here in the Toronto area I have never seen the liquid version, only the powdered one.

I buy the cheapest laundry detergent on sale and add one cup in diluted in warm water, and a cup of Calgon, also diluted in warm water, it works - plain and simple.

No bad smell, well except the time I had the Fantastic Fan on and I flushed - I think that's the day I lost all my hair

Let's not forget this a HOLDING tank not a SEPTIC tank we have.

Trud, I think its more for your own kids doing it. I know plenty of kids that like to just play with things without asking (my son included, hasn't done it....yet) that would be playing and think "hmm what is this?" and pull the handle a few times. I was already working on a fix for just this issue, lol.

EDIT: Read Here for some of these exact stories Dump station tips, tricks and mishaps.

What store in Toronto do you find the Calgon in? Since reading a similar topic a few weeks ago, I've been casually keeping an eye out for it when I am shopping here in Ottawa. So far, I have not come across it in any of the grocery stores I frequent.
