Jack Pots Portables Offers a Few Tips for Effective RV Waste Disposal, Lake Havasu City, Arizona

Owning your own RV can be an amazing experience, opening up the highways as almost nothing else can. However, they do take some maintenance, especially the waste or black water tank, a chore that must be performed fairly often to avoid some truly noxious odors you can't drive away from. Fortunately, according to Jack Pots Portables, providers of portable toilets to customers throughout western Arizona, RV waste disposal is a fairly quick, pain-free process.

rv waste disposalFirst, they suggest closing the gray water tank and letting it fill partially, then emptying the sewer first. By dumping the gray water tank second, you'll prevent clogs that can be extremely difficult and messy to clear while clearing out some refuse from the hoses.

Once you've dumped your sewer tank, fill the tank up to the three-quarter mark and pour in about two cups of bleach. Leave it for about 10 minutes or so, then dump it again. Never leave the bleach water sitting for more than 10 minutes, and never pour undiluted bleach into your RV plumbing.

After you've dumped your tank, put in about a gallon of clean water and some enzyme cleaner. As you drive your RV, the movement of this solution around the tank will gradually break down any hardened waste without unnecessary, messy scrubbing and eliminate waste that can cause unpleasant odors over time.

If your RV has a built-in backwash system, use it to pressure-wash your tank after each dumping. However, this can be almost impossible if you don't have one, so you might want to leave it to an RV waste disposal expert with the right equipment for the job. Otherwise, you can try to partially fill the tank and dump it until the water runs clear.

Of course, for the best possible results, you should leave your RV waste disposal in the hands of the professionals at Jack Pots Portables, who have the experience and equipment to completely clean and sterilize any type of equipment.
