Oh probably; I didn't look too closely.

This time after finishing in Riggins I jumped back in the river before changing into clean clothes, and when I got home I called my brother and thanked him for volunteering for scat machine duty in the past.

Even with the coating of cooking oil there were bits that stuck. And after experimenting with not adding a little dishwater on the last day, I'll go back to that practice. Also, I realize that I should have reminded the guys who had my Groover #1 in their raft that they needed to vent it daily after it was retired for the trip. Thank the river gods it's an Ecosafe, and even though the lid was pressurized, at least there was no actual spray. My Dad's old gamma bucket system had a bad seal, and it was no fun to carry at all, though it did fit on the Scat machine better. The hole on the Ecosafe doesn't quite align with the spray nozzle on the machine.

No. no eating lunch there, and certainly no Rocky Road ice cream, thank you.

Lol! I'm sure there could easily be started --a groover gone wrong -- thread.

Oh, it's on here in the archives somewhere. There were some truly horrifying stories.

Yep, I'm sure your right. Lol!. Cheers to Montana! One of these days I'll get back there. Now that I'm back in Colorado full time, it'll happen. Thanks for your input.

Huh. I wonder why the main lid blew off then.

As soon as I dumped my first 5 gallon brim full poo stew into an RV station clean out, a better groover went to the top of my priorities list.
IMHO I don't consider gamma seals adequate for this task
I went with the Riverbank and never looked back.
I'm curious to hear how others handle clean out with buckets and cans, sans scat machine.

Your local construction dumpster + new bucket and lid.

What could be easier??

On one of our High School trips, many moons ago, I made one of the kids carry a full groover bucket to the top of the ramp. Not too happy with the task....when he arrived at the top he dropped it instead of setting it down gently. The bucket cracked and you can guess the outcome. No more bucket systems on my trips....I bought a ecosafe and rocket box.

Wag bags with a gamma bucket if your river authority allows it and you have a small amount of users per bucket are pretty great. It doesn't block all the smell but the cleanup process is a breeze and worth the extra cost. We take 2 buckets, for longer trips. One to act as the groover and the other to store the used bags. Bags are biodegradable and you just dump the whole bucket in a dumpster at the end. You don't even need to get your hands dirty.
