Ron...I usually add a cap of detergent and 1/2 cup of Calgon powder softener in the toilet and wash it down with a 6 gal jerry can of water after dumping. I treat the black tank only.

Ok Dave my question to you is say you dump your black water "empty".
Then you put in the "geo-method" and add 6 gallons of water.
Wheres the first 2 gallons-ish go with the "geo-method" ?
In the empty black tank pipe that on my unit appears to be 2 1/2 feet long plus the 4" diameter.
Hows the "geo-method" working when some are all is in the drain pipe?

Hmmmmmm.

Thoughts?

Well, if his camper is like mine; all in the tank. The dump valves are mounted right at the tank outlet.

Like herk's, the valve is right at the neck of the tank, so all is in the tank. No harm in using more water and detergent/calgon...just using up some tank capacity.
