Struvite RV Tank Treatment, Struvite Removal for Recreational Vehicles 

What is struvite?

Struvite is a crystal that occurs naturally, mostly in places such as wastewater treatment plants (WWTP), confined animal feeding operations (CAFO), food processing, and other industries where magnesium, ammonia, and phosphate are present.

Struvite can also form in Recreational Vehicles (RV), whereas it has magnesium, ammonia, phosphate in the holding takes due to the hard water, ammonia, and other organic matter coming together.

The struvite or scale can range in color and thickness. Struvite can prove to be a major problem for Recreational Vehicle (RV) owners as hydro-flushing, mechanical cleaning, or the use of acids are needed to rid of the buildup that can cause clogs in the pipes and systems.

Struvite RV Tank Treatment with STSR Case Study

Used 2 gallons of product or approximately 1/4’’ thick of product at bottom of the tank.

  • Treated while the vehicle was inside heated garaged 55-60 degrees.

  • No odor other than the smell of the product.

  • Left 2 gallons of Struvite Remover STSR in the tank for 48 hours, drove around a bunch to stir, then

    dumped the tank. Rinsed a few times with water, then put the camera down into the tank.

All sensors were fouled after initial treatment indicating the tank was full when it was empty. Used a spray wand to rinse the tank and all sensors returned to normal.
