For the Geo method on your black tank.

My local grocery stores carry it but yes, Amazon has it. I prefer liquid to powder.

I bought a box of Borax for less than $4 IIRC. I could not find the Calgon either. Does the same thing.

No, Borax does not do the same thing. The water soften dissolves the hard matter stuck to the sides of the tanks and helps release it to be flushed out. The Borax helps clean it out but not like the Calgon will.

Hmmm...the borax is also a water softener. States so on the box. States it will work on the Geo website and I think several on here said so too. I just started using it so have no first hand experience to say one way or the other. I do understand how "soft water" works. I have a full house "rain soft" unit that I moved with me. I would never be without my water softener in my house. Will continue to look for Calgon but this box should last a awhile. Without going back to look, anyone else using it?
