Hi everyone, I am about to run out of Thetford Pink n Green fluids and am considering other brands.
Any one have any views?
Should I stay with Thetford or purchase Diamond, Elsan etc?
Thank you

I dont mind using any of the above brands that you mention, but find that some of the cheaper brands, such as those sold by Aldi to be false economy, as they need far more liquid per dose to achieve similar results as the main brands, and even then the results in breaking down any solid matter are never as good.

Its often true of the old addage that you only get what you pay for, and its never worth compromising any warantee on your cassette toilet by using anything other than the recommended fluid.

I have used all of them as i empty my toilet daily regardless of how much is in it .You will find the Thetford more concentrated if you do not want to empty it until full.

We always use these, 14.99 for two concentrated fluids so last longer. From any camping shop or dealer.

Depends how you use your toilet, if mainly for peeing at night then the cheap blue stuff does the job, none of it will damage toilet. You can often find it in caravan shops for under 10 for 5 litres.

I prefer to use Elsan blue because it smells much fresher and Elsan pink doesn't seem to have a problem with black bits like Thetford pink does.

I just wish I could find the stuff I used at a previous employer..

It's made by Satellite, they make the portable toilets you see on building sites etc.

I acquired a few bottles before I left, but still haven't found it in ANY shops - even specific merchants!

Found it to be fantastic stuff, thick so you don't use much and has a great almond perfume that lasts for ages even when the tank is full.

A lot of people use cheap clothes washing liquid from Tesco's or somewhere. Can't remember whether it's bio or non-bio though.

I've used a few different toilet fluids and haven't seen a difference between them to be honest.

I'll have to look at a bottle I've got, to see which one's closest / similar to the one's they list, and then find a supplier..... Unless they do single units to individuals?

I use the one for both toilet and flush, because the two separate ones work out expensive. It is green in colour, just ask your caravan stockist for the one for both.
Hope this helps

Not liking the revolting smell of "Blue stuff" (worst than the contents)I have always used Lidls Bio washing liquid, loads cheaper than the other stuff, gets rid of limescale and after rinsing you have a far cleaner cassette

I still can't see any reason for not simply using plain water in the flush tank. Maybe its a psychological thing with people wanting to see coloured water in the toilet flush. Still if it makes people feel better its their money to flush down the toilet.

When I worked in a dealership most of the vans that had pink stuff in the flush also had lots of black mold too. If you want to put something in the flush its best to put a few drops of Dettol
