RV Tips –  RV Toilet Chemical

When moving from one brand of toilet chemical to another you must be careful – Not all chemicals will react well with one another.  The residue from your old chemical might interfere with the new chemical’s ability to work well in your holding tank.  This is particularly true if you are moving from a formaldehyde based chemical, like “Liquid Gold” or “Aqua Chem – Blue” to an environmental sound product like “Odorlos” or “Mirage 2000”.

The formaldehyde reside in your tanks will actually prevent many environmentally friendly chemicals from working.  To combat this, rinse your tanks with water several times before switching chemicals.  Another alternative is to clean the tank with a detergent, we like Captain Phab’s “Purple Power”, before using your new toilet chemical.
