Looking for a good reliable tank rinser

I've been pondering my '75 rear bath and need to remove and weld the plastic tray below the toilet since it has a crack in it. I've got a friend who is apparently 'Yoda' at poly-wolly welding and said it's no issue if I can get the tray out.

While I'm in the neighborhood I'd like to put tank rinsers in the black tank and possibly the grey tank as well. Now to figure out which one.

I asked my local RV expert and he thought they are good idea but did not recommend the rotating head rinsers. He seems to have bad luck with the spinning versions simply not spinning over time. I like the idea having a spinning version... but reliability is more important.

Any thought on spinning vs. non-spinning tank rinsers? Any recommendation on brands/models?

The spinning ones quit spinning once they get coated with stuff (use your imagination). My black tank rinser quit working after three months and it was a fixed version. I bought a Flush King. Works faster and you can see when things are clean. I then leave a little water in the black tank dump a bag of ice down the toilet and hit the road. This scrubs the tank quite well.
Keep it simple and it will work for a long time.

Yep, that's one of the options and I have a Camco RV Dual Flush Pro, a smaller version of the flush king. I was just hoping to save some water with a rinser rather than back flooding the tank.

A blantant 'bump' to see if anyone else has good experience with types of tank rinsers.
