    Anyone know if anyone has them on offer at the moment?

    You could use any bio washing powder or any fabric conditioner. Works just as well if not better as many of us have discovered.

    Really?
    I am quite impressed with the blue stuff (less with the pink). And with 200+ days away a year it matters :)
    Does the powder actually break it all down (paper & sh*t) and stop it smelling?

    There is a thread "elsewhere" on this as well....

    May have to try with liquid!

    So - assuming a standard biological liquid, how much do you use? We have a 20L waste tank (I think) and use 150ml of blue (cap and a bit of the casette). Do you put the same amount in or......

    Assume it doesn't eat any of the rubber/seals in the tank?

    Guess its multi-use - can you wash your undies in there as you drive?*




    *Joke.

    There have been a couple of threads on the subject.
    We tried the fabric conditioner because all of them are bio and it required a better understanding of the various languages to work out which washing powders were than we could manage.
    We started putting in two cap fulls into the the 20 litre cassette. Then we cut it down to 1. Now we just use it every now and then only or before doing any travelling.
    No smells at all and no lumps when discharged either...:Wink:
    Having spent years living with a sceptic tank and filter, I'm guessing that all that is really needed is a kick start for the natural anaerobic bugs which the occassional jolt of the bio stuff does very effectively. Odd, though, because I reckon to wash out the cassette fairly thoroughly whenevr we dump but I guess the little bugs can hang on fairly well:Eeek:
    Just recently, the blade broke on the cassette and I had the job of taking the thing apart (several times:Angry:) and so was able to see what it looked like inside. The only residue was calcium, so I'm convinced noew that the bio option really works!:BigGrin:
    Start off with two capfulls per go and just reduce it to the point where you think it wiffs and then adjust accordingly, is my advice.
    The saving and convenience is not to be sniffed at:Laughing::Laughing:

    I put bio washing powder down my boats showers, stops the smell from the shower sump even though it auto empties out overboard.

    The black tank dosent not smell as its well sealed and it gets pumped out at sea!

    Can you clarify "capful"? Cap as per toilet casette, or cap as per bottle (fabric or washing liquid). I had no idea fabric conditioner was biological - we don't use it.

    What about for pink replacement? Would you use the same?
