Hi Mel. Thank you for the reply. The disinfectants I use are Chemiphase pink and blue. My son cleared it all out yesterday, gave it a good clean. We'll try the vinegar. Thanks for the welcome.Definitely strange. However, thinking about it, we used One Chem and thought it smelled strongly fishy when mixed with urine 🤮Try another blue such as Elsan.
Also Give it a really good clean out, both tanks. Only use vinegar as OC suggests or a proprietary cleaner for porta Portis such as Thetfords.
If all fails perhaps you should consult your GP. 😀
Welcome to the forum
Hi JTQ, Who would have thought that the fluids would cause such a pong? Thanks muchly for the tip.As it is stated that it happens whilst flushing, then the issue must be decomposition of the flush product used.
I favour just using plain tap water as a flush agent, as that with no nutrient content can't decompose. Drain after the toilet is put away so the tank is "dry" and thus unable to go sour.
For the freshen up, simply use a house plant hand sprayer charged with quite concentrated "pink" fluid
It is urine that is starting to breakdown that is typically where any real stinks from it come into play.We tried doing this on our recent trip and noticed that there was in fact,a noticeable smell occasionally. (We only ever do "number 1's").
We do very similar.We use toilet as a toilet, use CL's all the time and never had any real problems with any smell.
I do use the pink flush stuff and Elson blue.
Maybe my sense of smell is not as good as others.
I charge the flush once with the pink stuff then top up with clear water if needs be.
In warm weather I double/triple charge with the blue fluid, never noticed any continuous smells.
Home the first thing is to clean the toilet, seat off, holding tank dismantled as best I can.
Cleans toilet compartment, making sure the entry point gets a good scrub plus rinsing the flush tank.
Looks brand new inside and out.
Hi Buckman, Looking on you tube they say not to use bleach as it damages the seals but white vinegar is fine.We use ours for both functions. No pink a water comes straight from onboard tank. We use Dometic tablets in our cassette. If using vinegar, will it have any effect on any rubber seals?
DD i hope you took a lot of Toilet paper with you seeing you have use a lot moreAlways use Elsan double blue. This week , no toilet block, had a pong . It seems to me we have used a lot more paper than normal. This soaks up the fluid more than usual. Answer. Empty daily😎
