Why you need it

Black tanks are pretty gross... Solids and toilet paper can build up, so you're going to want to use some sort of treatment to break things down and keep things from smelling too bad...

What to look for

Most people use drop-in packs - you drop one into the toilet after you dump the black tank, and add a few gallons of water - that's it! Alternatively you can use a pour-in detergent, which works the same - just in liquid-form.

Decisions to make
Tablet / drop-in pod vs powder vs liquid

All forms of black tank treatment are basically the same, it's just a matter of cost and ease-of use, much like laundry detergent.

Pods are easiest, followed by powder, then liquid. The cost is usually the inverse: liquid is cheapest, then powder, then pods.
