Yo dude, TP generates 1/2 to 1/3 third the volume of matter that males do. TP reduces to next to less than considerable when stirred into place and bio-digested. I will admit that many times I've thought to put TP in a separate receptacle which might be considered. But never have gone beyond a separate bag for personal wipe and napkins.Wow, you fit that into an ecosafe ?? I think it's closer to 40 user days tops. Not to start a war, but women tend to use about 2 to 3 times the TP as men do, as my wife reminds me, they have a lot more to wipe.. I guess, but...
Lots of recommendations on how much you should put in them..........but for ranger check in at the put in..............Eco safe = 50 day uses..........Selway riverbank = 60 day uses............Jonny partner = 65 day uses.Does anyone have good numbers?
About how many user days is a Selway Riverbank Toilet good for on a multi-day trip?
How about an Eco-safe Rocket-box style system?
I agree with these numbers.Lots of recommendations on how much you should put in them..........but for ranger check in at the put in..............Eco safe = 50 day uses..........Selway riverbank = 60 day uses............Jonny partner = 65 day uses.
Can use water as a primer, but Pinesol or Simple Green are a better primer because they also help to keep smell down/mask smell. Found out that Blackadar uses Pinesol when I opened the Jonny Partner I'd rented and was ready to chew someone in my group out for peeing in the groover..then smelled pine and didn't see TP! That said, maybe use Simple Green so nobody looks in, sees yellow, and assumes it's OK to pee in the groover.MaverickUSC said:Water in the bottom to prime is great, saves on space and makes cleaning easier.
Same goes for pee. A pee bucket next to groover saves on volume and gives women a more private place to pee, and helps with groover smell.
Cool idea on the TP can. I'd heard of people burning TP in the fire, but let's face it, nobody wants to handle it.We also have an old coffee can for burning TP. It has a bunch of holes punched through the sides about a half inch up for air flow. We tell people to let the first wipe go in the groover, but subsequent passes go into the can and get burnt. This lets mummy hands and 10 swipe people feel like they're not crimping their style without filling the groover with paper. Ashes go in the groover when packing up, along with a sprinkle of bleach crystals.
Another tip: When the groover is "done" (usually before it is frighteningly full), I will take the used hand wash water and pour it in. Keeps everything from turning into a brick of turds.
