I just added 2 turbos to my black water tank. Like you, it took five or six times before the tank starts to run clear. The existing turbo is mounted up in a pocket which blocks most of the spray action of the existing turbo. The pec piping goes up thru the floor And comes back down. I would sure like to know what it goes up there for?

You didn't look for his other videos? He's got a whole series of tests using his black tank simulator and "artificial poo". Several interesting conclusions...

Done properly the Geo Method is very effective and very inexpensive. The concept is scientifically sound, but not rocket science. Geo Method

I added a tank flush, which works nicely. In addition, I fill the toilet bowl to the edge and, with the black valve open, flush it all at once. This helps to blast out anything missed by the flush system.
