Following The Unique Method as closely as possible will ensure that clogs, odors, and misreading sensors will be a thing of the past! This is a simple snapshot for your convenience. Further down the page we go into detail on these guidelines, so make sure you read them to help you understand how best to make The Unique Method work for you.
The Unique Method is a proven holding tank treatment process that we have meticulously developed over the years through in-depth conversations with campers of all types. Our process is easy to follow and will virtually eliminate all problematic tank odors, prevent clogs and pyramid plugs, and ensure that your tank sensors continue to read properly. With The Unique Method, we've taken the confusion out of tank maintenance by developing, a very simple, yet robust program that is hands-down the most effective process available today.
Ask ten RV owners how to properly care for your black and gray water tanks and you’ll get ten different opinions on the “best way” to treat your holding tanks! Certainly, each of these recommendations and home remedies will have their pros and cons. For example, some are great at eliminating toilet odors, but do very little for waste digestion. As a result, clogged tanks and misreading sensors are all too common. Other recommendations are helpful for solid waste digestion inside the tanks, but then tank odors can quickly become unmanageable. In other words, very few RVers have been properly instructed on how to completely solve tank problems all at once. Many of these treatment styles and home remedies require you follow strange rules, often involving use of ice, laundry detergents, water softeners, or expensive chemical treatments. Then, after a whole lot of headache and expense, you're still left with troublesome tanks! It can be enough to make you consider hanging up your keys and calling it quits!
The Unique Method isn't just a sales pitch. We don’t overpromise success based on a certain product or a home remedy based on old wives' tales; instead, we offer a well calculated mix of mechanical processes (physically doing the right things) couple with the right tank treatments to achieve an odor-free, clog-free, and problem-free holding tank!
In fact, we’ve successfully helped thousands of RVers using The Unique Method. The techniques we use can be successful with any type of camping (including full hook-ups, dry camping, or full time) in any temperature—as long as you follow the rules.
Like anything else, failure to reasonably follow The Unique Method's rules (e.g., using enough water or dumping your tanks frequently) will ultimately limit its success. That's just the simple truth.
We want to be upfront about this: nothing is a magic bullet, and if you insist upon pushing your RV past reasonable levels, you will have problems. For example, if you dry camp for two straight weeks in excessively hot temperatures, use virtually no water in your toilet, and never dump your tanks, odors are going to show up. Sure, you can use a chemical deodorizer to help cover up those nasty toilet smells with strong fragrances, but then it’s likely that your sensor probes will misread, and waste will build up inside your tank! Of course, it’s entirely your prerogative if you want to camp this way! Enjoy your RV however you wish, but also understand that you will have tank issues.
Here’s a quick analogy that might help you better understand the idea we’re trying to espouse: no matter how great the toothpaste nor how effective the brushing technique, brushing your teeth only when you “feel like it” will not equal good dental hygiene! A good dental routine is just that: a routine—regular brushing, frequent flossing, and normal visits to the dentist. Of course, great toothpaste and an effective brushing technique is certainly a part of the puzzle, but you can’t stop there!
Just like proper dental care, properly treating your tanks isn't hard; you just have to know what to do and when to do it. Then simply make it a routine!
All that we’re trying to say is this: like it or not, there are certain unchangeable “laws of holding tanks.” Refuse to abide by the laws, and you will likely end up paying the price: odors and/or clogs. But don’t worry! Like we said before, The Unique Method’s “laws” are actually quite straight forward and forgiving, so you don't have to completely change how you use your RV if you want to avoid holding tank trouble!
