The two products most widely available that contain principally sodium percarbonate are Woolworths Homebrand Nappy Treatment Plus and Coles $martbuy Napicare Plus. Most other brands contain other ingredients and less sodium percarbonate.
We were using Bio Magic ($48 a bottle) and often only used the toilet once before emptying as we only use it spasmodically when necessary. I tried the sodium percarbonate products and was even happier with the results. There was a musty odour with Bio Magic which we don't get now.
It is considered septic and long drop safe, and when burying in the ground, the slurry disappears quickly and leaves no harmful chemical such as the old formaldehyde 'preservative' type toilet chemicals do. We have a large bottle of this from the previous owners of our van which we have never used and need to safely dispose of.
I like Peter's simple formula.
By the way Brent and Lib, your instructions probably told you not to use anything else but the brand specific chemicals distributed by the manufacturers - a bit like Toyota recommend using Toyota genuine parts not Ford.
