How It Works
If you’re struggling with a clogged RV black tank you want to get it fixed
fast and effectively. When it comes to plugged tanks, there are two routes
you can take: manually clean it by jetting or snaking the tank (or hiring
a professional to do this!), or use a product to unclog the tank. Here is
a little secret: many RV techs hate jetting and cleaning black tanks, so
if you take your RV in to have them unclog your black tank, they are only
going to jet or snake your tank as a last resort. What they are typically
going to do first is use Unique Clear-It, the number one brand used by RV
service technicians to unclog black tanks.
Clear-It is the strongest, most effective solution for unclogging plugged
RV black tanks, and it requires no jetting or manual cleaning, which is
why RV technicians love it. No other product can break through clogs like
Clear-It can! Its extra-strength formula is powered by a blend of
proprietary bacteria and targeted enzymes that are designed specifically
to break down and digest the poop and paper that is clogging your black
tank - no matter how old the clog is!
Many products claim they can be used to unclog black tanks, but as we have
seen time and time again by helping frustrated RVers, these other products
never get the job. Most RVers who use other products end up wasting money
on a product that doesn’t work and spend hours fussing with toilet messes,
only to achieve nothing. It’s a very expensive and stressful learning
process. Before you waste your time or money on underpowered products,
grab a bottle of Clear-It. Clear-It can and DOES unclog black tanks! We
have helped thousands of RVers unclog their black tanks, and we can help
As we often tell people, there is no stronger product on the market, so if
Clear-It can’t unclog your black tank, no product can!
Effectively unclogging an RV black tank without jetting or manual cleaning
takes two things: the right approach and the right product. The first thing
you need to do is determine what type of tank clog you have.
This guide will help you. After you have determined the type of clog you have, you now understand
your opponent. It’s time to get to work!
The second step is using the right product. Well, luckily for you, if you
are reading this, you have the right product. Clear-It is the strongest
solution available for unclogging RV black tanks, which is why it is used by
RV service technicians as their back-of-house tank unclogger from coast to
The power behind Clear-It is an extremely strong and effective blend of
bacteria and enzymes that are targeted to break through the waste that is
clogging your black tank. The only thing you need is time and water. The
longer you allow Clear-It to work inside your black tank, the more likely
you are to easily resolve your clogged tank. Some clogs can be broken
through in just a few hours. Some, like compacted tanks that are full of
waste that has been sitting for years, take longer. For the majority of
clogs you can expect Clear-It to unclog your tank in 12 - 48 hours.
There is no amount of time that is too long to sit inside your tank. All of
the ingredients in Clear-It are designed to work with your system, so you
don’t have to worry about damaging your valves, seals, toilets, or tanks if
you let Clear-It sit in your tank for days, weeks, or months!
Also, be sure to add water to the tank if it doesn’t already have water in
it. Clear-It must be moved around the tank so that it can attack all of the
waste that needs to be broken down. Clear-It also needs water because the
bacteria that power Clear-It must remain alive and hydrated to work. Without
water Clear-it will not work. Worried about adding more water to your tank
if it’s already clogged? This is a normal fear that we hear from customers.
The reality is, you’re going to have to unclog your tank no matter what, so
adding water to the tank isn’t causing the problem to be any bigger. Odds
are, Clear-It is going to solve your clogged tank, and water will help this
happen. In the very rare situation where Clear-It doesn’t unclog your tank,
you’ll probably need to have the tank manually cleaned or replaced.
Remember, there is no stronger product on the market, so if Clear-It can’t
unclog your tank, no product will!
Ready to get your tank unclogged? Just follow the instructions on your
bottle. If you run into any problems, we’re here to help! Problem-free tanks
are in your future!
Unclogging Your Black Tank
If you have already determined the type of clog you have, you are ready to
unclog your black tank! If you haven’t already determined your clog-type,
read the section above.
Unclogging a tank without jetting, manual cleaning, or disgusting messes
is easy with Clear-It! The formula that powers Clear-It will do most of
the work for you. The real magic is time and water. Giving Clear-it plenty
of time to work is critical. The bacteria and enzymes will begin working
almost immediately to break through the waste that is clogging your tank,
but depending on your clog-type, it may take longer for more difficult
clogs. Plan ahead of time to let Clear-It work in your tank for up to 72
hours without dumping your tank. Also, be sure to have plenty of water in
the tank. Clear-It gets moved throughout the tank via water. If there is
no water in your tank, or not enough water, Clear-It will be ineffective
at unclogging your tank.
Unclogging Black Tanks In Stationary RVs
In the above section, we mention how critical time is for achieving
success with Clear-It. Many clogs take up to 72 hours to dissolve enough
so they can be dumped and flushed out. For Full Time RVers, and those with
stationary units, this time frame can be daunting.
As frustrating as it may be, we recommend not using your toilet if your
black tank is clogged. You are just adding more waste to an already
problematic tank and that can lead to even bigger problems.
If you are a Full Timer, we recommend that you plan on using the
campground facilities for a few days so Clear-It has plenty of time to
Also, remember, Clear-It does not require driving to work, so after you’ve
unclogged your tank, be sure to rinse your tank very well, for longer than
you would think - like 20-30 minutes - to fully remove the leftover waste
that may still be inside the tank.
