Vin.

I don't know why you would want to sanitize your black tank. I would leave the bleach out as it will do more harm than good.

Agree. I didn't think that the GEO method uses bleach and I don't use it with my treatment of GEO method, and all working well.

I am glad I asked. So the geo method has no bleach in it. That is even better. less chemical to carry and less to buy.

I saw a good video on tanktechsrx youtube page about hooking a hose to 3/8 tubing and going in from the outside and and breaking up the "brown mountain" that way. It sounds. to me, like you need a hose to clean out your problem.

Question. After dumping n flushing my black tank I put 1 chem pack and 1 gal of water. But when I was under my pup the 3" drain pipee between the valve gate n floor in a 90 degree. Question is dont the 1 gal of water I use just go in that elbow resulting in no water in my tank? Should I be using like 3 gal and a frop in pack?

The whole problem we have with these crazy black tanks is that they are not that big. So we cannot start putting all this "extra" water in them to deodorize/clean and keep things from beginning to make the dreaded pyramid. The 12 gallon tank will fill up too quick.
