Gooday,
Have one in our caravan for almost 3 years now, sure does work, no odour in the caravan for fluid or deposits. You can safely empty the contents in a septic or composting system without fear.
They are very costly for what you get but glad we have one, $28-00 June 2007.
Still have to empty casette every 3 days or so but worth it. We empty more often if we see a dump point.
Cheers,
Boroma604.

A SOG is just a venting system so toilet smells are pumped outside to your neighbours.

We just use napisan in our toilet and smells are not a problem.

Gooday Lionel,
With all these acronyms that we must endure today, the best translation seeing the original words and the product are German-: is "Smell Orl Gone".
Cheers,
Boroma604.

Gee Tee

I use homebrand napisan and put 1 capful of napisan into the cassette and try to empty about every 3 days.

I mix this with a small amount of warm water to disolve it

Much cheaper than "chemicals" works better and is environmently safe for disposal even in septic systems.

I have a "low cost" version that looks neat, and works very well, it really just comprises:
1. A small computer fan fitted inside the access door.
2. An external vent on the door face.
3. A microswitch and wiring to run the fan when the trapdoor is opened.
I was planning to include some carbon filter foam in the vent but it just hasn't proved necessary. Had also considered making up DIY kits but don't seem to have found the motivation.

We put one on our last van, and were impressed enough to put one on our new van as well. They are expensive, but in my view they add greatly to our comfort in the van.
