LOL Any smart business person for any RV product should always use the disclaimer that their product will not necessarily fix problematic tank sensors! Even if it is a wheel grease product!

No odor, drains clean.

Sensors work sometimes, but our senses work well by now to know when to dump. Otherwise a quick peek in the black tank with a flashlight or noting how the sink drains give us tank status.
Instead of Dawn in gray, I’m told that you need degreaser. You are already putting detergent into the tank. Never use bar soap.

I have 32.5 gal tanks, I put two cap fulls of Calgon, one cup of Borax and about a quarter cup of Dawn dish soap. And then filled my tanks all the way up. Here's my question.
Is it ok to let this sit in the tanks for multiple days and then drain or will it cause problems if it remains in the tanks for too long ?

I did this and left my tank full for two weeks before I dumped it. I haven’t had any issues so far. The black tank runs crystal clear water after one dump and one flush.

I don't use chemicals in any of the holding tanks. Just use lots of water to flush, dump when it's full, run black tank flush for 5 minutes, and add 5 gallons of water after dumping the black. No odors, sensors work, and best of all no hassle.

Good luck with that in hot weather.
