    Whilst away for months on end in France, we ended up running out of toilet blue. The cost to replace was unbelievable, but needs must I purchased some from a Hypermarket.
    A few days later, I was talking to a fellow traveler, who said he uses Bio washing tablets instead of Blue, because of the cost involved in France.
    Has anyone come across this method?

    Lots of people use it. We tried it but simply preferred the toilet chemicals. However, using cheap bio detergent tablets is much, much cheaper and well proven. Recommended by many.

    Bio liquid is our choice. Some other loo chemicals are very bad for septic tanks (fosse septique) so you'll have the advantages of usng a cheaper product that doesn't destroy kill the the good bacteria in the waste storage and soakaway systems used in many areas of France.

    They also stink.
    Park next to someone with a SOG outlet facing your direction who hasn't changed the filter, or as I experienced, has removed it.
    Then come back and tell us "they work".
    I took the offender to task but his answer was more or less "It doesnt leave smells inside our van and it's good for the evironment".....helpful, eh?
    He was most pissed off next morning to find someone had duct taped his outlet up.
    If I had a pipe long enough I would have piped the "aroma" under his van and into his awning.

    You are going to fit in well on here..... though there are readers of the "Suffolk Gazette" on here as well. Planet Zog is in Suffork by the way, and last time we visited Norwich we were turned away at the border by a mob with pitchforks and torches who apparently fancied roast duck for dinner........ ;)

    I'm wondering... how often you change your SOG filter?
