Sensor cleaning

Not sure which post to add this to. Found this sensor cleaner in my local RV shop. It is called sensor power. This came AFTER I had tried the Cascade, after using the wand, and filing and emptying twice and my grey water tank was still sowing 1/3 full. Half a bottle , a full tank of water and 24 hours later and emptying and yippee! My tank monitor now reads empty! A little expensive but no more than the Cascade.

What's the secret ingredient in that bottle? My grey is totally dry but reading 3/4 full. Thanks for sharing the tip.

Ingredients say:"bacteria, enzymes, and natural surfactants."

I guess this is a good time to report that the two Horst probes I installed in just a few minutes worked great on our recent camping adventure. As soon as I drained the gray water, the panel showed empty. As a matter of fact, I could watch the draining operation on the panel. First the 2/3 light went out, then the 1/3 light, while I stood there. I wish I could have installed Horst probes in the black water tank. They don't indicate accurately until I get a chance to flush the tanks. Of course, it's not hard to figure out how full the black tank is.

Only time will tell Parker. Mine was trouble free for two years. I don't miss it and never paid much attention to it. In fact had I thought sooner, I would have left them off the build.

Dave, are you referring to Horst Probes? I didn't realize you had included them in your build.

Actually, there must be perfumes in it also as it smells pretty good! Really surprised how well it worked considering it just sat there and there was no turbulence created in the tank, as would occur in travel. It might even work better when traveling. At any rate, I'm happy with it.
