Default Using Vinegar In Waste Tank

Ever heard of pouring vinegar into the Black tank?

Never used it in the black tank but it's great for cleaning everything else so why not.

You can also add a little olive oil...

I am continually amazed at the stuff people want to put in the waste tanks. Probably none of it is harmful, but mostly it is unnecessary.

You might find this information helpful:

RV Waste Water Treatment

Below is a quote!


"One concern I had about recommending no chemicals in the holding tank was that we were hooked up to a sewer system at the time so I could completely rinse my blackwater tank each time I flushed it (about every ten days). I thought I might think differently once I began the boondock lifestyle. Well, it's been nearly a year since we began boondocking and we still use no chemicals in our holding tanks. I DO wash out the graywater holding tank with vinegar every chance I get because it does create a foul odor if I don't but still nothing in the blackwater tank."

Interesting stuff. I knew you could clean with vinegar but never though of using it in the tanks. Maybe I'll try it.

Sean: I wasn't aware that Newell installed 3 holding tanks. I have only 2, one for fresh and one for sewage! When did they start that or are you calling your fresh water tank the grey tank?

Hi Larry,

That is a quote from that article I gave a link to. I guess I should had put that. I am not aware that Newell has installed 3 holding tanks either although I'm sure they would if you asked them to.

I just added it for you Sean. One of the Older Newell's I owned had three tanks and they looked original but they could have been modified at one time. If so, the whomever did it made it look factory. I seen a later model unit down at Newell that had one tank for waste and grey divided. I think it was about two-thirds grey if I'm not mistaken. I'll have to look and see I have a picture of it.

I have a few friends who do the white vinegar and vegetable oil method. They do it monthly and say its environmental friendly and also friendly on their wallet.
