I like to think of the grooves being half empty...

As the proud new owner of a Coyote River Gear toilet (https://www.riversports.com/rs/produ...oilets-Groover) I have a few questions for those of your more experienced in wrangling boxes full of human waste.

What do you do if your groover is barely used (5 out a possible 50 user days) on a trip?

Do you clean it out, or dump in some more AquaKem and let it sit until the next trip?

This is the situation I find myself in after a 2 night Chama trip with just my wife and myself. I will probably just go to the dump station and clean out so my first time will be with a barely 10% full tank, but I want to know for the future.

Dump it every time. When I use a bucket with hermetic lid for very small trips of just me, I dump and rinse it out in my toilet if it's the day of or next day. A little wood ash makes about the best deodorant you can get by the way.

When it's just you and the SO, take wag bags. Save the big toilet for big trips...

Keep your partially full Groover stored in the trunk of your car until your ready to use it the next time. Only consider cleaning and dumping when it starts to overflow.

Is this a joke? did you really just ask if it's okay not to clean your Groover when there is only a little poop?
