Decomposition in your tank takes a while...chemical or not. Personally I dump it every 4 to 7 days. Ponds or pods? If you want a mobile decomp RV, be my guest. I don’t.

If you must, then bleach -- cheap, simple, and fast acting.

I use Pure Power Blue. Have full timed for the past 18 months now and the black tanks go 8 to 10 days before needing to be dumped, have never had an odor and really breaks down TP and solids quickly.

We go 10 days or so between black water dumps for 6 months a year and have never used anything but water. .never have an odor problem. .additives are just a waste of money.
