Hi Brian, We have the same, Fiamma Bi-pot 30 No problems and the pump is very simple compared to some.other brands and it is goodseat height. It has big screw on lids but dont overtighten them. Easy to clean.. You can usually buy them onEbay, delivered for under $100. if you get a smaller holding tank model you will be able to keep your ears warm with your knees!!! They are verey low..

Deals Direct have portable toilets, cheap when on special. I don't know what brand, but there is a choice of 10 or 20 litre cassette.

We have a built in Thetford in the caravan and that hasn't given us any problems.

The bi-pot is a messy thing to empty into a toilet pan as it splashes everywhere
whereas the thetford porta potti has a long snout that reaches into pan therefore doesnt splash as much i have both & found the thetford much better

absolutely the best toilet on the market Aussie Disposals 20L
Come on special for $99 if you can wait. Aldi also has the same toilet on special at times for $98.

We have the Thetford 20L Porta Potti and it works a treat. Only issue I've had is the pump needed replacing after I left the unit on the back porch for a couple of months in summer - the plastic is not UV stable. With a new pump it's as good as new.

Emptying it takes a bit of care as it can splash, but I've learned to take it easy so no more worries.

Cheers
John
