    Having previously been firmly in the blue toilet chemical mob, I've been seduced by the 'bio lobby' on here and have bought some cheapo bio liquid for the cassette. Question is, how much does one put into the cassette; a cap full? A quick 'that will do' slop of the stuff? What?

    Don't tell me that it's the same amount as goes into a washing machine, because I'm not fully trained-up on washing machines! ::bigsmile:

    I normally use a couple of capfuls but don't bother measuring exactly so, often enough, the cap isn't quite full. I suppose it's slightly more accurate than "A quick 'that will do' slop" but not much :D

    I put less than a capful in and just top up if required. We very rarely have smells and I'd rather not put more in than is required. If I'm feeling reckless, I'll put some in the cistern to help stop the black algae building up and it tops up the waste tank with bio liquid as it flushes.

    I tend to use whatever I find when I need some, it probably varies from brand to brand so I find a quick slop to be a fine method.

    Sainsbury's bio liquid, one capful for every empty tank.

    Empty tank every other day, more in hot countries - but no no 2's - unless an emergency!

    Gosh I must seem strict!

    slap a bit in is what we do, not a capful that is just extravagant . Enough to work and no smells come out either, the solids are no more and it is easy to flush away when emptying the cassette. SOMETIME we cannot empty at an easy to get place, so we change cassettes for the spare and still no smell.

    We use Tesco Biological Liquid and use one capful when recharging. We've found more than that sometimes introduces a chemical smell and generally it's not needed. We also try to empty the cassette daily as it doesn't seem to last as long as the proprietary toilet chemicals, especially in warm weather.

    The answer is to empty regularly, no more than two days or when it begins to whiff!

    Are they bio tablets? Try bio liquid next but in places like Spain they don't say anything on the packet as to whether it is bio or not. I understand this is because it almost all is, only we sensitive Brits are offered a choice. :)

    And as for the rest of you, are you all constipated? :D

    Strangely, we have discovered, originally through necessity that using for no 2s and not rinsing when emptying, reduces the smell and breaks things down better. I assume it must set up a sort of septic tank effect.

    Don't you love a good toilet thread.
