I've been using the packets vs. the liquid and it works really well. How does it compare in price? I bet the liquid is cheaper per dose.

One of the major reasons for odor is not emptying the tank frequently enough. Most say 5-7 days is the longest between dumps whether full or not, especially in the warmer weather.

I used the drop in's before and do work well.
I use that liquid stuff mainly because it it fast acting and does smell rather pleasant!

When we had our Heartland T/T I put cyclones on the vents on the roof, never had any smells. So when we got the Jayco did the same and don,t have any of the smells neither. The cyclones act like a vacuum and when the wind blows it sucks the smell up from the black tank. Well worth it in my opinion. Ernie

Hmmm will have to check that out,...what is a cyclone and where do you get them?

They sell them at camping world, in fact right now buy one get one free. Take off the top cover of the black tank and grey tank, these go on and they swivel, so when the wind blows it creates a vacuum effect and pulls the bad air out of the tank. Very easy to put on. It requires a drill and some sealant, they look like a wind vane sort of. they work for me. Ernie

I don't know if it's because I empty tanks frequently, because I use a Tornado tank flusher, or occasionally add the orange stuff discussed above, but I've never had any smells probably a combination of all three, but my money is on the tank flusher.

I dump a little snort of mixed (with water) or pure el cheapo laundry detergent in the old bowl every now and again. No smells so far.:hihi:
