As so many new members are joining daily, I thought it may be time to mention again, alternative materials to use in your toilet. I used to use the blue stuff but hated the smell and its not eco friendly. Then came the green eco fluid and others designed to be eco friendly and smell ok.
For the last few years we now only use the little green biological jelly packs made for washing machines. It smells good, does a perfect job and is much cheaper than toilet fluids. One warning though, the cassette must have no traces of chemical fluids left or they will kill the little jelly packs and will not work.
Another alternative is SOG but just the name puts me off.

History tells us there were Three Wise Men but there were actually four and the gift from the last was a packet of biological washing tablets.

I'm glad you are maintaining this valuable tradition. :)

Tried all sorts from Bio Tabs to Toilet Blocks - all of which work ok.

You just don't get the lovely blue colour when you empty, but if you can cope with that it fine.

Also have SOG fan fitted as standard.(n)

Shit is shit, whatever you stick in it .... it’s still shit.... and you won’t come up smelling of roses...

Usually it’s your own or beloveds so go, and go empty it.....:D2

Used blue, green fine, .Tried laundry liquid and tabs, but do not like the sweetish smell. Have settled on the Elsan green it is much thicker than the others so you do not need as much. The green is also useable everywhere unlike the blue.

Always wondered what people do if they use blue and they stay somewhere that does not allow blue, bit too late at that point to change without emptying a cassette that has blue in it o_O

WE we changed from Eco Fluids to liquid laundry detergent (NON Bio ) when we ran out and asked the site owner for advice as they had a Fosse Septique (We were in France)
We were advised to use the Liquid Detergent (pods had yet to appear) but NOT to use Bio as it had enzymes that would attack the biological part of the Fosse Septiques biosphere

We changed and after a short while noticed that the cassette on emptying had lots of black bits coming out on examination found that it was coming from the surface and we could now see grey again

When pods cam out we changed to them as it made it so much easier to set up the cassette just remember to put some water in to allow the PVA, that they make the pods from, to dissolve

PLUS the pods are so much cheaper at Aldi and Lidl

We used Tesco's cheapest biological washing capsules and these did a reasonable job. Recently had a SOG unit fitted but yet to try it out but we have high hopes it will cut the muster, well at least cut the smells!

I have a mild perfume aversion, so I use Elsan Organic which doesn't doesn't smell of anything

As posted above, you can use it anywhere

I empty it every 4-5 days, works well & easy to use

Another vote for Bio capsules. No problem with septic tanks as we never go on campsites.

We also have 2 x cassettes. Thinking of getting a third, but only to keep up with our friends:LOL:

No, as soon as the toilet blade is opened, the SOG fan should start. It is a quick-starting fan and there should be no updraft from the toilet opening. To test it, light a match, or even better a joss stick, before opening. Let it smoke then hold it in the bowl before opening the blade valve. You should see the smoke disappear smartly down the hole.

That seems so wrong on so many levels:xrofl:

We have a Carthago and it came fitted as standard, I'll try the match / joss stick idea - thanks for the advice.

SOG units can be very smelly outside van if not maintained not sure on all their claims ie they degrade waste faster without adding anything but if you rinse them out each time you wash all the active bacteria away - thereby leaving your toilet looking dirtier than a public toilet if you try to keep some active bacteria - also it will still smell as much at emptying time.

I'll stay with tabs and empty daily if possible
