I have read a number of articles concerning adding water softeners to the black tank to keep the crud from bricking up.I found a 40 lb bag at the store today and picked it up but I'm concerned I may have bought the wrong item. It says 99.9% salt. does that sound right? or did I buy a bag of salt?

Sorry, You bought a bag of water softener salt. Calgon water softener is in the laundry dept.

what you bought is salt for a water softener installed in a house. I use it in mine. Calgon should work fine for the tank.

just make sure it is the calgon water softener when you get it. it is available at Walmart and most grocery stores. or you can get it online.
