Groover Tips

Just purchased a ECO-Safe Toilet System for overnighters.
What products should I use and what quantities (ratios).
Cheaper the better.

Powdered bleach the more the better. I've found with my Eco safe when I get to the take out fill it with water till its above the poop and let it slosh around in the back of the truck or trailer on your drive home... Slides right out!

Overnighters=just water. two or more nights=pinesol. That is the frugal mans way to deal with it.

Ya but about another 10% whiskey has to make it into that blend somewhere (but it won't come from the corn).


The blue stuff RV individual packets were designed to do the trick, and they do. One package and a half gallon of water to start, top it off with water and even add another packet whenever necessary. Drop it off at your local treatment plant, for a few bucks it comes back good as new.

Just overnighters? Contact the guy on Nrs gear swap with the $2 wag bags. No sense going through all that trouble cleaning out the shitter for a few poops.

If you feel bad about the waste you can always leave the bags in the parking lot of your favorite local Walmart. They have a vacuum machine that cleans the lot will shred the shit out of it

Can you elaborate on this?
Is this a common service at water treatment/sewage facilities?

Wag bag for overnight/weekend trips. RV powder for weeklong trips. Have tried that sawdust decomposer stuff once and didn't like it. RV powder works and deodorizes as well. We've used it straight out of the packets, but have found that filling up a Mrs. Dash shaker with it works the best with our gamma bucket system. The holes in the shaker lid are nice and big, and if you keep it dry it won't clump. A sprinkle after each use and you're good.

It's kind of expensive, but a 1/2 of the little powder jar does a full eco-safe load, and the spritzer bottle lasts for much longer than two trips. It doesn't seem to make anything slide out any better (spray pam inside before use), but it is pretty amazing how the whole load, corn and all, just doesn't smell. Amazing chemistry involved.
