RVers, even those who are newcomers, are aware that their holding tanks should digest solid waste. Waste is broken down by many products, and odors are removed from holding tanks by others. Some commonalities exist between treatment products, despite their differences. Occasionally, products contain dangerous chemicals or ineffective ingredients that cause more problems than they solve. In this article, we will examine the benefits and dangers of using a waste digester of high quality.
The liquefaction of waste prevents clogs.
The waste digesters in your black tanks are responsible for digesting waste inside! By digesting waste inside the tank, you can prevent clogs caused by pyramid plugs and compacted tanks. It is bacteria, enzymes, or a combination of bacteria and enzymes that break down waste in waste digesters.
In many cases, enzyme-only treatments do not completely eliminate solid waste in a tank. Although enzymes do not live, they are only capable of breaking down waste into smaller pieces. No odors are attacked by them. Bacteria, on the other hand, digest waste completely. That’s not all there is to the story. Holding tank treatment products often use different types of bacteria. Products sometimes contain bacteria from cheap strains. The bacteria inside your tank are often unable to break down waste, leading to clogs.
A high-quality waste digester uses both bacteria and enzymes. Large pieces of waste can be digested more effectively when non-living enzymes break them down into smaller pieces. These enzymes aid in the continuation of the process by helping the bacteria produce more enzymes. There will be no clogs in the waste digestion process as a result!
Odors are eliminated by waste digesters.
It is important to know that bacteria can be divided into two types: anaerobic bacteria and aerobic bacteria. Some products contain anaerobic bacteria, just like those found in your stomach. A high-quality waste digester will use the best strains of aerobic bacteria. Unlike anaerobic bacteria, aerobic bacteria emit only carbon dioxide and water when they break down waste. Anaerobic bacteria that cause disgusting odors in your aquarium can be removed if you use a product that contains aerobic bacteria. Aside from breaking down solid waste and preventing odors, aerobic bacteria are often preferable to anaerobic bacteria.
