Help us clean our black tank

$350 goal

Campaign created 17 days ago
My wife and I live in an RV. I am on disability and limited income. Our black tank is full and beyond repair. To replace it would cost at least $1200, so we are looking at other ways to be able to use a toilet and found Nature's Head composting toilets. A toilet would cost $960, which is cheaper than fixing our current toilet. 

I've tried everything to clean out the black tank, but since the RV is 30 years old, it has 30 years of buildup and waste inside. I've tried chemical, enzymes, ice, manual cleaning, nothing will work. Its like 30 years of waste was sitting dry by the previous owners and turned into a disgusting, concrete-like mess. We have run out of options though and don't know what else to do. A composting toilet would be both better for the environment, less water waste, cleaner, and lighter than trying to continue using a failing black tank. 

I know, its not a huge thing like medical bills or school, but we obviously need a toilet to use. Our black tank is currently draining very, very slowly. All the RV technicians I've contacted have stated that it is pretty much beyond repair and needs to be replaced. 

We would greatly appreciate any help you can give us with this. We are struggling to figure out how to make this work, so any assistance is welcome. 

We do reviews on our blog for RV technology, and I've even contacted the manufacturer of the composting toilet to see if they can sponsor us with one in exchange for a review and mentions on social media, but so far come up short. I just want to be able to use the toilet, that's it. Not too much to ask, is it?

I dropped the total down because I found a place that will in fact clean out our black tank. And guarantee that it will be clean. Total is about $350 to get it all taken care of and should take two to three hours, depending on how bad its blocked up. And well, its blocked up pretty bad. So now we are raising money to get it unclogged and cleaned out and hoping that it will be all shiny and new and we won't have to deal with it not draining anymore.
