    image.jpeg I have never seen one of these machines before. Cost £2 to use. Is this the way ahead?

    I am sure they have been around for about 5 or so years now..
    From memory, was it not Thetford themselves who 'invented' them ?
    We saw one in Germany ( which was 2 € rather than £2 ) about 3 years ago

    where is it? looks like a site, that will upset a few, if it is not a very cheap night rate that is not right really, cant see the cover lasting long, or if not I suspect there will be a lot of dumping nearby

    at least I have a black tank makes slightly better value at 100+ litres at a time

    The place we saw it located it was beside the elsan point..
    Noticed a lot of folk were using the elsan as normal all week but then using the machine just before they left.

    On a site at Loch Lommond. Normal toilet facilities also available. Might invest £2 before I leave out of curiosity.

    you'll be on Lomond Woods site then. have used it, great £2 worth in my view.

    and Lomond Woods is good. 40 mins from the house but we go often for a quick overnight. will be there Saturday this week

    Looks like you get chemicals wether you want them or not.

    @DavidG58 not sure how that would cope with your black tank, back to a basic hole in the ground would be my guess.

    interesting concept, I can't work out whether you remove your own cap or not, if not there could be some spillage issues

    cant see how it could unthread it and replace it

    that could be fun when brim full, looks like it has to be put in horizontal

    might be that it is designed to clean it rather than empty it, empty first into elsan then put it in here?

    Looks like it does it all via the 'entrance' hole on the top - i.e. you don't unscrew the cap.

    If you watch the video cap stays on, all the have to do is open the blade.

    I don't know what happens if you have a hole in the cap for a SOG or even a normal SOG fitting in the top, guess it just works the same.

    It's a smart little thing though to know the difference in size of the cassette, there seem to be so many variants, although I guess the valve must always be in the middle, but even so the different lengths must be an issue

    but as you say Martin, sod all use for my black tank, for that matter so is the elsan

    That's another £2 you saved.

    And will it go to £3 when the £ is lower than the €
