The sun woke me as it came over Pilot Knob Mountain at 6:45 again this morning. I relaxed in bed and checked in with Dolly and my blog.
Got up at 7, because I wanted to call John the All Pro Water-Flo man about my stopped up black tank right at 8 o'clock and hopefully get an appointment today. I'm at critical level.
Called at 8 o'clock, 9 o'clock Yuma time and right away, John answered the phone. 😀 How often does that happen! He was waiting on my call I think. He works at the same company as MCA (Middle Class American) one of my commenters. MCA works in the Phoenix area.
We talked and I explained my problem. John had two appointments, but said he could work me in after noon. I was happy to hear that. He recommended an RV park that was familiar with his services. I called and they said to come on in so I reserved a site at theVery nice place and very reasonable on the east end of Yuma.
John contacted me on his expected arrival and was right on time with all his gear in his trailer. He got right to work and since I was curious, I asked alot of questions and he explained things as he went along.
It wasn't long before I realized this job was not for the amateur. I won't go into details but he used a powerful special water tool to first get through the entrance into the tank. He had to use a TV camera to find his way in. Once in the first stuff to come out was sturvite crystals that were on the inner lining of the entrance pipe.

After John left, Yuma and I drove to the Walmart to pick up things I needed. Took quite awhile and it was dark when I exited. Hate driving in dark but we made it back to the RV park where I will stay the night. Time to fix dinner and go to bed. Exhausted watching John work 😀
See you later.
That's no job for an amateur! Glad you found such a professional person as John to get those tanks cleaned out.ReplyDelete
Me too. John did a great job. Finally clean tanks after almost a year.Delete
Glad you were able to get your tanks cleaned out quickly and efficiently. Always nice to find someone who knows what they are doing and get the job done in a timely manner. See you tomorrow.ReplyDelete
Yes. Nice to finally be rid of that problem. Be back in the desert soon.Delete
Doug, I am so glad John got you all cleaned out. The Struvite is some nasty stuff, and with the hard water here in AZ it is hard on our RV tanks. Don't forget when you get home, dump some TankTech RX in those tanks for the months you're not using. Get your self some liquid Calgon (sold at Wal-Mart) in the laundry soap section and pour a cap full down the toilet after each dump. It will help keep the contents of the tank soft so they don't stick to the tank walls AND, it helps keep the Struvite growth down too. Now, you can enjoy the rest of your winter vacation!ReplyDelete
Thanks for recommending John. Heading to Walmart on my way back to the desert. Will get the Calgon. What a relief it is!Delete
Wow,John knew what he doing! I hope that solves your issue. You are eating good stuff, what was tonight's menu? Take care, Rawn StoneReplyDelete
Yes he did. Last night I just had a lunch meat ham sandwich and dessert. Didn't feel like cooking. Today is Taco Tuesday!Delete
Good thing you got that messy little bit of business behind you.ReplyDelete
It is about time. It's been plugged since I bought it.Delete
Definitely glad you got THAT fixed!! What a relief! LOLReplyDelete
Thanks Nancy. I'm glad I got over thinking I could do it myself 😀Delete
Congrats on getting all that fixed! I appreciate the comment by MCA..we will be picking up liquid Calgon today while we are at Walmart!ReplyDelete
Thanks. About time I got off the pot and did something useful 😀Delete
I wouldn't want john's job, but glad there are pros out there who know the business. Did he make any recommendations for keeping the tanks clean?ReplyDelete
I'm glad I didn't try it myself with no tools. He said to mix Calgon and pine sol 16 oz for 100 gallon tank for each dump.Delete
It is exhausting to watch people work especially for what John was doing. Glad you found an expert.ReplyDelete
Thanks Elva. Glad it's over.Delete
That will be such a relief for you to get those tanks emptied and cleaned. So, it's the hard water in AZ that does that? Interesting. We do use Calgon as well, Bill has many bottles in storage at our friends this winter. :)ReplyDelete
It is great to have that problem solved. Glad it wasn't a broken valve puller. Getting Calgon and pine sol today.Delete
Glad your Tank Problems were resolved.ReplyDelete
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
