Black and Gray Water Chemicals

Recommended Posts

Being new to the world of RVing, I am unsure about which Holding Tank Treatment is best. I am currently using Oxy-Kem drop in paks. It seems to work well but I have not added any slide valve lubricant as recommended in the manual. I noticed that one brand of holding tank treatment has a lubricant included. Would this be the best to use or would separate products be best? Thanks for any help from all you experienced campers!

I'm not saying what I'm using is the "best", but I've been using the Camco products because it is readily available locally and is formaldehyde free. I believe there are even more environmentally-friendly methods out there, but I haven't tried them yet.

 

Even though the Camco green TST has some coconut oil lubricant in it, I have also added the straight coconut oil separately once just for preventative maintenance. I can't say it was necessary, but I don't think it can hurt.

Thanks for your reply Herm. I think I will start using the TST. Walmart carries it in our area. And I think you are right it can't hurt to add the straight coconut oil on occasion.

:) We're also using TST for the lube property. Getting ready to install an Extreme Vent which I had on my Casita and worked great for extracting odoriferious odors :o . Cut chemicals by 2/3 :lol: . Kept using coconut oil though!

Thanks for your response Chuck and Geri and congratulations on your future wedding. We have never heard of a Extreme Vent, would be interested in how it is installed when you do it and hopefully some pictures.
