Cleaning an RV black water tank is more than just emptying it – but it’s easier than you think! The proper care and maintainance of your tank will help keep all the parts funtioning properly and stop those stinky odors from seeping into your living space.

There are two types of bacteria in an RV black water holding tank: Good bacteria that breaks down waste and controls odors. And bad bacteria that’s responsible for those nasty bathroom odors. For that reason, it’s so important to choose the right chemicals to keep the good bacteria and get rid of the bad!
