Hi all. I have found some really useful info on portable toilets here on the forum. Now my next question is what do I use in the bottom tank in regards to napisan? Powder or liquid and how much added to a litre of water?
Thanks Chris.

I put 2 caps off powdered napisan ( use the cheaper brand ie: Black & Gold or Home Brand) with about 1Ltr water. Make sure you use white toilet paper with no colour. Then you will have a stink free toilet.

Black & Gold is no good as doesn't have sufficient active ingredient. Aldi is the same only half active ingredient compared to Coles and Woolies for same price. Need to buy at Coles or Woolies Home Brand.
Good squirt of dish washing liquid in cassette and top tank make substantial difference to breaking down and keeping top tank, bowl and bottom tank clean. Quick flush with water with detergent gives bowl lining.

I agree look at Mother Hens article. Andrew back & gold is ok when you cant get anything else. We found just using white toilet paper works also keeping the smell down. The dyes in the paper makes them smell also.

Motherhen has done an excellent blog on this. have a look here.

From our recent experience a cheap Napisan equivalent and soft white toilet paper works very well.

Cheers,

The No Brand Nappy or Laundry Soaker from the supermarkets is cheap and works perfectly. The key ingredient for you is Sodium Percarbonate and it should be around 34%.
This information is often hidden in very small print somewhere on the label!
I have only ever seen it in powder form.
Just thoroughly rinse your cassette then put it back into the toilet. Open the slide.
Get about a litre of warm water in a jug. Sprinkle two lidsful of the Soaker into the cassette and pour in the water.
Close slide.
Toilet is now ready to use.
You will need to empty the cassette about every fourth day.
There is no need to put anything in the top tank. Other additives may interfere with the Soaker's effectiveness.
Apart from being more effective than the smelly chemicals toilet manufacturers sell this Soaker is environmentally safe. Lynne

Only need to mix in TEPID water if stationary. If travelling and empty cassette and then travelling some more, 1 to 1.5L cold water and two heaped capfuls of home brand nappy treatment and detergent will self mix. Don't buy large container as goes off. Check use by date.

What do the products containing Sodium Percarbonate actually do - mask odour or break down "stuff" or both?

Steralise with oxygen. Not dissimilar to hydrogen peroxide in action.
