The stick probably does best of any water clean method. Trouble is you won't have time in dump stations to do it well. Its only necessary occasionally anyway. The built in flush gives a lighter rinse to most areas of the tank but not all. Its best used with a fill and flush also.

I had been using my tank flush simply with the valve open and letting it run for five minutes after the black tank was drained. The last time I dumped, thanks to this technique being mentioned almost daily here, I tried the fill and flush method after a five minute wash. The good members here really know what they are talking about. When I opened the tank, lots of nasty stuff came out. Thought I should take a moment and thank the people here for talking about this flush and fill technique.
