    If you've changed a nappy you can empty a cassette. :D

    Good Luck Sandra, but think of Joy and Maz, they just have a routine sure it will become just another job soon.

    I have had a few lessons just in case :sick:

    Ok that's that done for a few days. Not too bad, I remembered about the yellow button to release the air and there was no splash back. The cassette did fall off the trolly though on way to dump, luckily nothing opened or leaked out!

    I have a funny story the time I tried to do it, it has to do with pulling the wrong lever, think of the chandelier scene in only fools and horses. (it was more than one cassette full too.)

    You soon get used to it.... Been doing it for over 5+ Years now as a fulltimer and I don't even notice the smell any more. I still remember when I first started MH'ing having gipping sessions each time :rolleyes:

    Morning Sandra

    word of caution for next time, put the cassette cap down lower than the elsan when you take it off, you would not be the first to watch it drop inside, then you have an empty toilet you still cant use

    My wife does all that sort of thing.

    Its not my department.

    I have never changed a nappy either - I made that a condition of having any children

    I don't know what all the fuss is about..... it has to be done and it's your effluent so just get on with it. The only time I've felt ill doing cassette duty was when the old formaldehyde chemicals were used, the stink of the chemicals was awful. Now we use laundry liquid and although it is probably only a mask to the smell I don't care.

    Mind this is from the woman who LIKES cleaning out poultry houses and is always willing to give a hand on mucking out day!
