Holding Tank Solutions
It should be simple enough–all you’re looking for are some holding tank chemicals for your RV. Yet, when you roam the aisles of your local RV supply, you’re confronted with a multitude of choices–crystals, powders and liquids in every color of the rainbow. Some with toxic chemicals and dyes, others that claim to be environmentally friendly. Eventually, the inevitable takes place–you just pick one and leave the store, not knowing if what you’ve just purchased is going to work for you.
What a lot of holding tank chemical manufacturers seem to miss is that RVing is a form of recreation that has many facets, and the needs of the RVers can vary greatly depending on individual use. What works great in the 40 gallon holding tank of a full-timer’s Class A may not be the ideal choice for weekender’s small travel trailer, for instance.
Finally, someone gets it. Dometic, one of the most trusted names in RV appliances and accessories, has introduced a new line of formaldehyde-free Lifestyle Eco-Friendly Sanitation Products designed specifically for the way you use your RV. What’s more, the products have been categorized for your type of RVing lifestyle (Full Timer, WeekEnder, On-The-Go Living) and thoughtfully color-coded to make finding what you need on store shelves easier than ever.
For example, Full Timers who are on the road 200 plus days a year want the best value and longest lasting holding tank treatment, so Dometic offers a product custom-tailored to their needs. Easily identifiable by its purple Full Timer label, this product is available in one-gallon or 32 ounce concentrated liquid sizes, or as convenient pre-measured “Toss-ins” in a 6 or 12 pack. Both liquid and Toss-In versions deliver long-lasting odor control with a fresh, clean scent and a lower cost per dose than competitive products.
Weekenders want something that’s convenient and easy to use, so Dometic developed convenient, pre-measured, rapid dissolving 2-oz. “Toss-ins” that not only have a fresh scent, but feature an effervescent bowl cleaner. These are available in a 12 or 24 pack, and can be identified by an orange WeekEnder label.
Portable toilets are often used in a tight space such as a tent or tent trailer, and require a product that offers long-lasting odor control with a clean scent. Since these units are usually similarly sized, Dometic developed a granulated holding tank treatment that comes in handy, premeasured packets in a three-pouch pack with a blue label for On-The-Go-Living.
Last but not least, Dometic’s Green Living product is completely non-toxic liquid that comes in a convenient 24 or 48-oz container. Though easy on the environment, this product remains tough on the job, with long-lasting odor control. It’s also economical, as only four ounces will treat a 40-oz tank. And while on the topic of environmental responsibility, it’s worth mentioning that Dometic also offers its Enviro-SOFT toilet paper made from 100% recycled paper, with no added dyes or fragrances.
With Dometic’s new sanitation products, you can spend less time searching the aisles, and more time at the campground–where you should be.
One of the things that differentiates a high end coach from an entry level one is the toilet. It sounds funny, but the fact of the matter is a good toilet is usually expensive, and people are willing to spend the extra money because they know the added comfort, appearance and ease of maintenance are worth it. But you don’t have to invest in a high end RV to get the amenities of one–you just purchase the new 310 Model Toilet from Dometic.
The Model 310 features a full size vitreous china bowl that is easy to clean and won’t scratch, a full-sized adult seat and an 18-inch seat height for maximum comfort. Dometic’s PowerFlush™ technology uses strategically placed water outlets that create a vortex flush pattern for improved rim wash and complete coverage. And an ergonomic, user-friendly pedal flush design lets you add water by pushing down partially, and flush by pressing down completely. Add sleek European-inspired looks, minimal water consumption and an enhanced replaceable ball seal design, and you’ve got an RV toilet for the 21st century.
The Model 310 is easy to install, too, with a simple, yet solid two-bolt mounting configuration that fits most standard floor flanges, and it even includes a pre-installed flange seal. Simple luxury doesn’t get any easier than this.
