Best Tank treatment

Looking for a consensus or at least personal preferences of the best tank (black/grey) tank treatments out there. So far I'm leaning towards Walex Bio-Paks for black tank and Elemonate for grey tank. Unless says these are junk products of course. I appreciate all input!

I used the same for black tank and like it. Don’t regularly use anything in grey

I have been using Calgon liquid water softener and maybe a little laundry soap in the black tank. When I drain the tank I use the flush and really rinse it well. I mean really well and several times.

The Calgon prevents anything from sticking to the tank. I have not had any issues or odors. And as the OP said, lots of water.

Haven't seen Happy Camper treatment in local stores. Where does one buy this treatment?

My RV dealer stocks it. But it is also available on Amazon. I was given a jar years ago at a campground by a guy who sold it out of his RV. On his recommendation I use about 1/3 of the labeled amount and it lasts a real long time with zero odor issues.

Water and a squirt of Dawn dish soap in a freshly dumped black. Don't dump it again until I have spent 6 nights. Grey - nothing but water.

I use laundry detergent from the dollar store. 1/4 of bottle into the black tank. I put it in before leaving on the trip with the tank empty. It's only twenty five cents per use and works great.

X2. I used to use the "pods", which were mostly o.k. but the Happy Camper is the best in my book (fwiw).
