The Water Chemical (WC) of the Caravan

One of the fundamental choices when choosing a caravan is if you swim or not. Smaller do not usually have it. This article will discuss the chemical water and maintenance . Therefore in this article we will summarize everything you ever wanted to know about the chemical toilet and did not dare to ask ..

Is it recommended a chemical Water in our caravan?

For anyone who has children it is highly recommended a WC  chemical , which is nothing more than a plastic toilet, with a deposit which has previously deposited a liquid that breaks down organic matter. It is annoying that the kid you up at two o’clock and claim to “pipi”. You can use a urinal clear but most likely is that our foot (or the child) ending within sooner or later. Besides , how then we do with fluids? Without the smell … No. Toddlers and chemical toilets are a good combination.

What types of chemical Water  there?

Basically two: portable and fixed. The difference is in the form of “evacuate” waste and fill the tank of the tank.

In the case of WC  chemical  fixed  deposit is extracted  from the outside of the caravan or motor home (usually through a small door on the side). Thus, from the outside,  also the liquid of the tank is filled. Then we talk about it.

These are some of the mechanisms of fixed Wc ..

 

A fixed chemical Water already integrated in the bathroom of a caravan.

 

Access outside the caravan to extract the deposit of fixed chemical toilet. Pictured is already extracted. It
is necessary to press down the lower yellow tab to remove the deposit.
At the top we see the shell of the tank. You
have to turn it outward to fill.

 

 

The liquid to fill the tank is usually pink and in a pinch can be replaced by water (ye turn bleach or any chemicals since then mixed with the product and can deposit brown liar ..)

 

The door usually has a lock on the outside not to steal our deposit .. (must be vil ..)

 

The case of WC  laptop  have to remove the toilet tank in the same caravan. This type of toilet usually have less capacity and many people carry them in Campers and tents.

 

The biggest  difference between the two types is the capacity of the tank and the tank, which in the case  of fixed WC is higher (  The deposit usually takes 20 liters compared to a laptop computer 15  ).

Does it smell bad a chemical water?

No. A WC well “prepared” should not give off any odor . When emptying only a strong smell of chemical it can be seen (by some highly toxic), but no smell of excrement.

The chemical toilet smells bad even if we leave several weeks at half capacity, although not usually recommended.

 

How does it work?

Both types work similarly.  Before using it must open the gate that separates the toilet bowl tank so that the droppings fall within it. Before we will deposited in the water tank and the liquid that breaks down waste.

After making our needs (although it is also good to do before), we’ll pull the tank in which you previously put another liquid (usually pink) to help to slide and give a good smell of the cup.

 

Chemical toilet usually have an indicator of tank capacity.

When this indicator (in the lower part green and red) signal that is about to be filled is necessary to separate the deposit and to draining.

 

The wheel we see on the left is the opening and closing of the deposit, the right (larger) is the cistern.

How it is empty and ready for a new use?

Emptying a chemical toilet is much less disgusting than it looks (remember that does not smell).

For starters it is desirable to have rubber gloves , since the chemical that breaks down organic matter is extremely toxic . Therefore, it will empty only in places authorized to do so in Camp, Camper Service Areas and Areas.

 

As the full tank can weigh more than 20 kilos , some come with wheels for easy transport.

If not your case I recommend you do with a shopping transporting those suitcases. Your back will thank you.

 

In most campsites drains for chemical toilets usually with normal toilets. Many of them limit the time for emptying and only allow it between 10 pm and 8 am.  Ask it when you get to camping or you can bring some surprises (like you to take pulse 20kg deposit to drain and is closed …)

Chemical toilet drains are similar to those bidets only with a hose and usually a metal grate (for better dump the deposit).

 

It is also advisable take a plastic bottle  liter (or two – liter) because once clean tank must shove aside two liters of water chemical. You will need as measure.

To proceed to drain the fuel tank cap is unscrewed and mouth emptying into the drain is rotated.

 

Here’s friend is equipped with hiking shoes because it is not advisable to empty the tank with flipflops.
For that matter could have put gloves ..

Once evacuated all the liquid reservoir  introduce water hose and put the cap agitaremos it well. Then we’ll be empty. We repeat the operation until the water runs clear.
Once clean introduce the amount of water that tells us our product label chemical (typically 2 liters) and the amount of product specifying instructions (usually 150-160 ml). Liquid in the pot is usually an indicator of capacity come on the side.

 

Well and that’s all folks … Any question in the comments .. See you at the campsite !!!
