    I just ordered up the ingredients on Amazon. When I use the No Flex I always tend to skimp due to my general conservative nature but mainly because when I run out, I have to remember to reorder and then order enough to get free shipping and I still end up with three bottles of the Noflex and a couple of bottles of the bio-cleaner. Now I will tend to use more and also use in the two sumps as well as they actually stink up the boat more than the head systems. I turned on a new boat owner to the No-flex when she was telling me how unbearable the odor was in her aft cabin. I took one wiff and ran to my boat and gave her a bottle of NO-Flex. She treated her system and the next time she came to boat, the funk was gone. She is very Happy now.

    Aaron when you order it as above, you get the 15 lbs mixed perfectly.

    Carter,
    Is this what you bought on Amazon? Looks slightly different to what Blueone got on EBay. Thanks

    I’ve been waiting to run out of my supply of Noflex which I did this season and looking forward to making my first batch of Carter’s Poopy Powder!

    How much of this mix do you use and how often?

    I used Carter’s formula all this season, and did use it in the bilge with great success. This spring I filled the water tank with bleach and water as I normally do after launch, but after the first batch had set in the tank I pumped about 50 gallons into the bilge with liberal amounts of Carters. I turned the bilge pumps back on and pumped it all out. Bilges came out great. The best part is the water and waste tank are over the keel and hard clean under, this stuff lifted off years of accumulation.

    This is what I get and then I use a kitchaid to mix at 2-1. Then use Ninja blender to pulverize into a fine powder. So far it works great.

    I follow the NoFlex directions. I even refill the NoFlex containers with the new mix...

    2 OZ per 10 gallons so for my 42 gallon tank is a quarter of a 32 OZ bottle per each pump out. I literally only go through about a bottle or 2 a year.
