A letter in the latest PCv asked if she should continue using the Thetford style loo paper. I did use it many years ago as it was the only tissue that just about dissolved in Thetford toilet solution. I find using the ordinary domestic roll with Elsan blue leaves no residue at all. Have you seen the price of the "official " loo rolls at Dealers, eye watering! :woohoo:

I prefer to use the Thetford stuff as I favour using the Elsan Green fluid, so it does not break down as well as you chaps have experienced. I bought some of the Thetford paper 4-pack as an add-on item through Amazon - was about £4. I then bought some from Ebay as a box of 3 packs of 4 for about £10 over a year ago. These have lasted for absolutely ages; seemingly lasting much longer than a normal roll would.

Oh dear, this is where this thread descends into lavatorial detail. Sorry everyone for the next bit....
Soo, they last longer because;
There are more sheets to the roll than supermarket loo roll?
Or
Each sheet is larger/ more absorbent and you are one of the few folks that therefore reduce loo roll use in response to this factor?
Or
You generally don’t do number 2 s in the caravan?

You asked... so here you go:

1) The caravan toilet is used for all eventualities, as a home from home. I've paid for it, so I'm using it! (The only downside is I have to empty it too)
2) It seems that the Thetford paper is thinner than regular paper, so I guess that fits is more on the roll. I have not researched the sheets per roll stats but it looks the same size.
3) The aperture of the waste compartment may influence the amount of paper used in one go, but there is no conscious effort to economise.
4) The Thetford paper does not breakdown fully with Elsan Green (IME) so requires a blast with the waste point hose.

One caravan chap I know looks at me in a funny way when I say the cassette toilet is used for everything when it comes to 1's and 2's, my first job every morning is to empty the cassette regardless of a thumb test,

Crikey one other person use ONECHEM, which we have used for ages now, and found very effective and so convenient with no wastage when measuring. Back on topic....ordinary Sainsburys loo rolls.
