I guess Calgon is NOT going to "take me away". I have talked to people smarter than myself, which isn't hard to do, I'm going to try cascade dishwasher detergent. I guess the " sheeting action" would do the same thing as the calgon. It's septic tank safe so it shouldn't cause any trouble in the holding tanks, so we'll see. I'll know after this weekend, I'm going to add some tonight and leave it until we dump the tanks Sunday.

so, if you use the water softener etc, did I understand the original article to say that you do not need to use black tank chemicals??? I would think that I could use both, use the water softener to clean the sides of the tank and the chemical to break down the solids. Did I misunderstand the original author? - Thanks

A lot of rv parks ,down here at least, don't like the blue chemicals in their septic systems. I take it as an alternitive to the chemicals, in theory keep it clean to start with and you won't have the smell to cover up. I've always been told if you are using septic safe paper and dumping the tank when it's at least 2/3 full you shouldn't need chemicals. It never seems like it works out that way with the heat in Florida, but I'm hoping to kind of get a "fresh start " since we recently purchased this fifth wheel. I hope this helps.
