How It Works
When you use your RV’s toilet, your waste is stored in your black tank.
The goal of a good holding tank treatment is to do three critical things:
eliminate toilet odors, maintain working sensor probes, and digest solid
waste for easy and thorough dumping. It’s the last on this list that we’re
concerned with here: waste digestion.
Here’s the rub… even if you are treating your tanks with a high-quality
tank treatment, like RV Digest-It, there are still a number of ways that
waste can get left behind in the tank. A few common culprits include:
- RVs that are slightly out of level while camping, or dumping. Because tanks drain with gravity, waste that is in the low spots can
remain inside the tank even after a thorough tank rinse. This waste can
harden over time and be resistant to rinsing, even when the tank is
- Shelves inside the black tank. Many RVers are surprised
to learn that there are ledges and shelves inside many black tanks that
are used to hang the black tank from the bottom of the RV. These shelves
can collect waste that remains inside the tank, even after sufficient
treatment and rinsing.
- Sagging tanks or low spots in the tank. Many black
tanks begin to sag over time, creating low spots for waste to accumulate
in. Because these low spots are often below the discharge port, waste
will not fully drain out of the tank.
Because of these reasons, we recommend that RVers treat their tanks with
Store-It whenever possible. Store-It is the first product of its kind that
is designed to be left inside a black tank, so the active ingredients can
keep cleaning while the RV is in storage!
While your RV is stored between camping trips, Store-It’s active blend of
enzymes and bacteria move about the black tank, taking aim at any
left-behind waste that can eventually lead to persistent odors, clogs, or
misreading sensors! Store-It is designed to liquefy this waste, so it can
easily flush out upon dumping, leaving your tank spotlessly clean!
Rest easy knowing that Store-It’s powerful formula is designed to be left
inside a black tank for days, weeks, or even months, while the RV is in
storage, and will not damage your tank or components. By filling your tank
with water and 8 ounces of Store-It, you can rest easy knowing your RV is
being deep cleaned while it sits in storage between camping trips!
For that extra-deep-clean, add Store-It to your wastewater regimen!
