Thetford award performance avoids explosive Porta Potti encounters

Recent postings on another forum about the use of Napisan in portable toilets once again raise concerns about some campers misusing the product and potential damage to Porta Potti seals.

A feature of Thetford Porta Potti toilets is their seals are hermetic (airtight). The toilet management additives which are recommended by Thetford prevent methane build-up in the Porta Potti holding tank. Napisan does not and blowback from pressure build up in the holding tank can be an unpleasant consequence if Napisan is used. Napisan is also abrasive to the seals in portable toilets like the Thetford Porta Potti.

GoSeeAustralia has completed months of evaluating Thetford eco-conscious toilet additives in Porta Potti products in a variety of caravans, campers, RV's and tents.

Thetfords toilet additive Aqua Kem Green particularly impresses GoSeeAustralia with its European award winning performance. The biological action of Aqua Kem Green means that micro-organisms biologically break down the toilet waste in the tank. It is particularly suitable when emptying the waste tank into septic systems in caravan parks and on camp sites. Aqua Kem Green is completely biodegradable and will not harm organisms.
Thetford Porta Potti Excellence May 2012
Thetford Porta Potti Excellence.

Thetford, has been awarded the stringent German Environmental Certificate Blue Angel for its Aqua Kem Green and Aqua Rinse products by the German Federal Environmental Agency.

The award recognises environmental consciousness in toilet additives and a committment to avoid adverse effects on sewage treatment plants.

None of Thetford's toilet additives Green Blue or Pink Rinse include formaldehyde.

They retail for between $12 and $14. Campers who value the environment and prefer to avoid unpleasant, explosive portable toilet encounters will likely see this as good value. Thetford says that Aqua Kem Green acts for a maximum of three to four days with average use.

Aqua Chem Blue lasts four to five days with average use.
