Selling the chemistry behind holding tank treatments Holding tank treatments use a variety of methods to eliminate offensive odors created as waste is broken down. Learn how each is best suited for the situation: CHEMICAL DEODORIZERS Chemical Tank Deodorizers are the most popular because they provide the best odor control in the least amount of time. They are inexpensive in the short-term and simple to use, and there- fore great for the weekend warrior customer-base. They can be added to tanks that contain other treatments without clean- ing the tank first. Star brite's INSTAFRESH Tank Deodorizer goes a step further and lubricates valves and cleans sensors. INSTAFRESH Pros: • Easy to use & maintain • Great for infrequent RV use • Works fast to break down paper and waste BIO-ACTIVE DEODORIZERS Bio-Active enzyme treatments contain live aerobic bacteria that break down waste, reproduce, and crowd out anaerobic (odor-producing) bacteria. They are environmentally friendly and their toxicity is extremely low. Bio-active treatments begin break- ing down sewage immediately, and unlike other treatments, they multiply and continue working long after treatment is complete. However, the microbes require a well-ventilated and residual free holding tank to survive. Bio-active treatments become more cost effective over time because of bacteria propagation. Star brite's BIO ODOR bio-active formula digests both waste and paper. BIO ODOR Pros: • Eco-friendly formula • Digests both waste and paper • Long-lasting for the road tripper NITRATE DEODORIZERS Nitrate treatments provide an interesting alternative. Oxygen is vital to bacteria in the process of breaking down organic waste. When little air is present (as in most holding tanks), bacteria derives the oxygen from sulfates in the waste, which produces hydrogen sulfide (stinky!) gas. When nitrates are introduced, they act as nutrients for the bacteria, providing an alternative source of oxygen, which results in the production of nitro- gen (odorless) gas. Nitrates are environmentally friendly, and are ideal for systems with less ventilation. They speed up the breakdown process and reduce odors. The tank must be free of residuals from other treatments. Star brite's ODOR AWAY is also scent-free for those that are chemically sensitive. ODOR AWAY Pros: • Contains no formaldehyde • Safe for use even for chemically sensitive people • Get rid of solid wastes, as well as toilet paper TANK U.
