    Eveining all,

    been a while since my last question,

    loo paper, roll, toilet tissue ... what ever you want to call it,

    can any household paper be used or do you have to use the special
    stuff for a Thetford?

    Cheers

    We use Floralys Recycling from Lidl. It comes in a packet of 10 rolls and cost not a lot. OK it's thin compared with Andrex and suchlike, but it disintegrates nicely in the cassette and at the price you don't mind using three sheets folded over.
    Thetford, in my opinion, are having a laugh at the price they charge. Maybe it's thier version of lavatorial humour. :BigGrin:

    We tend to use the Daily Mail :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Yes it should be fine to use just normal stuff thats all we do you can buy stuff by thetford but a bit pricey.

    Not a particularly pleasant subject to discuss after eating, however.....

    expensive multilayered toilet tissue tends to cling to solids in the tank preventing natural breakdown. The special stuff sold by thetford is a total ripoff, and whilst it breaks up quick like ricepaper its stupid expensive,,,,like wiping your bum on £5notes.

    Best compromise by far is the supermarket own brand non quilted, not due to price, but because it doesnt cause blockages



    Whatever you do NEVER put those cloth based toilet wipes down any toilet, either at home or in the van. As a drain specialist told me, they act like velcro, causing serious blockages that are hard to clear. In his words, they keep him in steady work with his jetting unit and give him a great income.:Eeek:

    You can always use the 'Jam Jar Test' - put toilet tissue in a jar with some water - put lid on and shake - if the paper disintegrates you'll know it won't block. We use (when in the UK - Tescos blue and white stripe stuff).

    After years of using government paper (similar to greaseproof) that spread rather than wipe :Eek!: I became a toilet tissue snob and would only buy the most expensive paper I could find. But when we got an RV it was important that the loo paper dissolved so as not to block the macerator (a poo liquidiser), which meant the triple ply labrador puppy comfy bum stuff was out. So we bought the cheapest own brand stuff we could find that disolved easily. This cured my snobbery and now we only buy cheap stuff for house and motorhome. :Smile:

    You know what you get when you cross an andrex puppie with a pitbull?........
    A dog that scares the sh!t out of you then runs off with the bog roll:Rofl1:

    What, and waste a sheet, obviously you're from the affluent (not effluent) side of the family.:Laughing:
