Default SOG

I was thinking about fitting a SOG to our recently aquired second hand van. However, and I may be way off in my understanding, after reading some of the technical documentaion from the SOG site it looks like it depends on a good airtight seal to the toilet bowel, it mentions a blade valve?

I notice in our van that if we fill the bowl with two or three inches of water it soons drains down (hopefully into the cassette)

So would a SOG still be worthwhile? And maybe more importantly, do we have an issue currently with our toilette that needs attention?

fitting a new seal to your cassette and loo is really quite a simple job. If there is water draining out then I would suggest this needs doing as it shouldn't happen.

As for fitting a sog? I have on my last two vans and find them invaluble.

However, I haven't on this van as now days Im so perfect, even my poo dont smell

Another toilet thread - excellent
I can tell you that the theory of the sog system does work. At Wrenbury Colin left the blade open after one visit and with the skylight open as well, the chimney effect was terrible! I opened the door sometime later to be knocked sideways by the smell!

If you could smell their loo then you were to darn close! Our SOG vent into the safari room and doesn't cause us a problem. I do use Tesco washing liquid to kill the smell. One cap is enough.

I find it is urine that causes the worst smell not poo. When wilding we only use the loo for No:2s and restrict the amount of urine. I can go for a week to 10 days without needing to empty the cassette. We use a cassette bided and put the urine into a nappy type bucket with a close fitting lid which is disposed of daily. Fresh urine is sterile and can be disposed of with the grey water.

I was a fair distance from their van but when the wind was in the right direction you could defiantly smell it

How did you get the smell ? where they using the loo all the time? must have been a very long s--t -the fan only works when someone is sat using the loo evn then it goes througha carbon filter eliminating the smell -ALMOST as much shit talked about sog 's as gassing or is it the same thread
