If you use the ECO METHOD (do online search) You will find that your tank clears much better and your tank indicators will be more accurate. It works for me. Another thing to do or not do is don't use the toilet fan when you flush or you will suck stink out of your tank. Turn it on after you have completed the project - if you know what I mean.
Did you mean the Geo method? And yes, this method works well.
I guess Im "one of those people" as there isnt a trip that goes by that I dont rinse my black tank and get it as clean as possible. I use my blank tank rinser every trip. I may even be OCD because if I see anything other then clear water come through my clear fitting I fill it up again and and do another flush
I agree with the, "rinse and move on", crowd. When you have FHU's you can spend all the time you want. When people are waiting in line, it is pretty annoying that someone feels the need to make the black tank spotless. It's a tub of you know what, it isn't going to be pristine no matter what you do.
Heh, rinsing was a bad idea for me today, since I am on full hookups and don't move often I leave my rinse hooked up with a valve in line. While fixing my hot water heater today I figured I was going to be outside for a while and would rinse and dump while I was there. About this time I found the problem with my WH and ran to the store(a two hour trip). I left the RV place and then remembered...fast drive home. Got lucky appearently owner has a lot of capacity lol.

There are quite a few campground dump stations with a hose fitting that you simply cannot connect a hose to. Even with a water thief. In these cases, you pretty much have no choice but to just dump and move on. Clean it later, somewhere else.
That's the beauty of having hook up's at home. I can 'dump and run' when camping, then take my time and clean it all out at my own pace in my side yard. Or if the dump line is long because some dood is flushing his black tank, I can just tow all the******home and deal with it tomorrow.

I've only had a black tank rinse hook up this year with our new camper and I've used it a few times (70 or so percent of our dumps) but only when there's no one waiting and only during "non-peak" times at dump stations. You can't always get a hose hooked-up at some dump stations as the original poster has noted. In those cases, just wait for the next opportunity.

Jessjerr1831, I carry some heater hose....1/4, 3/8 and 1/2 inch ID...then on the other end I have fittings for a male hose hook up that fits on the tank rinser...One of the heater hoses usually fits snug over what is at the dump station...We usually leave at nonpeak times so it works for us
