Many kitchen sinks drain into the black tanks. A lot of waste goes down the sink. If equipped with a garbage disposal even more garbage makes that trip. We use our stool. Do not stay opened to the dump and only dump when 3/4 full. We use plenty of water when flushing.

Kitchen sink water in the black tank gives plenty of liquid and a little soapy action to help prevent the dreaded "poop pyramid" you've experienced.

I think a properly adjusted Microphor allows plenty of water into the black tank. I use my toilette as it was intended but the dump valve is never left opened. I only open and drain it when it gets over 3/4 full. If the dump valve is left open when the toilette is in use, water drains faster than solids and a problem will develop.
