Grey sensor showing 2/3 full

I know it's a common issue however I can't seem to get the sensor to read right. The sensor keeps on reading 2/3 and when it's actually full it does say full, when it's empty it reads 2/3. I tried using dish detergent and filled up the tank and let it sit there hoping it will clean the sensors but it didn't.

Has anybody had any success in trying to clean the sensors in the grey tank? If so what did they use.

Thanks

Get one of those wands with the spinning sprayer head and stick it down into the tank thru your toilet. Just make sure to turn of your water and careful of your toilet seal. It works every time for us.

Depending on the setup, if you can get a tank wand into the tank might work. Otherwise try a good dose of laundry detergent and then fill.

They are wanting to clean a grey tank, not a black tank.

I’ve used Commando Black Tank cleaner in my gray tanks and it’s worked well. I dissolved the tablet in a bucket of water and then poured it down the sink

Try Dawn Liquid Dish Detergent. Low cost and it cuts grease and oil.

Since it always reads 2/3 even when full could be a wiring issue.
