  1. Add a small amount of water to your toilet bowl and spread it around with a soft-bristle RV toilet cleaning brush. 
  2. Remove as much large debris as possible using your soft-bristle RV toilet cleaning brush. (Note: never use a standard toilet brush with rough bristles. These tough bristles will scratch your bowl!)
  3. Coat the inside of your toilet bowl with a thin layer of Unique RV Toilet Cleaner.
  4. Let sit for 10 - 15 minutes.
  5. Brush away all debris and stains. 
  6. Flush and rinse your toilet bowl.
  7. When dealing with especially difficult stains, apply RV Toilet Cleaner and let sit for several hours before scrubbing and flushing.

Sensor Cleaner for Black Tanks

  1. Close your black tank valve. 
  2. Fill your tank with (preferably) warm water. 
  3. Shake your bottle of RV Sensor Cleaner very well.
  4. Pour half the bottle (16 ounces) of RV Sensor Cleaner into your black tank through your RV toilet. 
  5. Fill tank with water - preferably warm
  6. Let sit for as long as possible. In general, you should allow for at least 48-72 hours. However, there is no amount of time that is too long to let Sensor Cleaner work. In fact, the longer the better! The active probiotic bacteria need plenty of time to consume and dissolve the waste coating your sensors. 
  7. Open your black tank valve and dump your tank. The contents of your tank should be liquified and drain freely.
  8. Rinse your tank very thoroughly. 
  9. Your tank level gauges should read “empty.” 
  10. Repeat if necessary, increasing dosage and time. 

Tips For Maintaining Properly Working Sensors
  1. Always keep your tank valves closed during normal use.
  2. Fill your tanks to ⅔ full before dumping.
  3. Add 2-5 gallons of water and the prescribed amount of RV Digest-It to your tanks after each dump. RV Digest-It will help to digest waste that might coat onto your sensors.
  4. Use plenty of water each time you flush your toilet.
  5. In general, use ample amounts of water in your tanks. More water will improve the function of your toilet and your tank. Using plenty of water will also help the beneficial bacteria in RV Digest-It to thrive.
  6. Do not use bleach or other caustic chemical cleaners in sinks, showers, or toilets. Chemicals can kill off the beneficial bacteria in your tanks that digest solid waste coating your sensors.

Holding Tank Cleaner

  1. Close your black tank valve. 
  2. If possible, add several gallons of water to your holding tank. The more water, the better!
  3. Shake your bottle of Tank Cleaner very well. 
  4. Pour the entire bottle of Tank Cleaner into your holding tank through your RV toilet.
  5. Let sit for at least 12-72 hours. However, the more time you give Tank Cleaner to work, the better your results will be. After the treatment period, the solids in your tank should be liquified. 
  6. Open your black tank valve and let the tank empty. 
  7. If you have a tank rinser (i.e., the flusher), run it for about 20 minutes until the tank is thoroughly rinsed out.
  8. Close your black tank valve and only open it when you're dumping so you never have to deal with this problem again!
  9. Repeat steps if necessary.

Tips For Maintaining Clog-Free Holding Tanks
  1. Always keep your tank valves closed during normal use. Leaving your black tank valve open can cause pyramid plugs and other clogs. 
  2. Fill your tanks to ⅔ full before dumping.
  3. Add 2-5 gallons of water and the prescribed amount of RV Digest-It to your tanks after each dump. RV Digest-It will help to digest waste and prevent clogs.
  4. Use plenty of water each time you flush your toilet.
  5. In general, use ample amounts of water in your tanks. More water will help the beneficial, waste-digesting bacteria in RV Digest-It to thrive in your tank, minimizing the likelihood of clogs.
  6. Do not use bleach or other caustic chemical cleaners in sinks, showers, or toilets. Chemicals can kill off the beneficial bacteria in your tanks, which means more issues with clogs and backups for you!
