blue vs pink camping toilet

Pink Or Blue – Which one do I need?

No category found

Modern campsites are fantastic, offering great toilet and wash facilities. So, you may think that there is no need to pack a chemical toilet for your next camping trip. However, as the saying goes, it is better to be prepared and if there is one thing that is likely to dampen your camping spirit it is the dash across fields to the toilet block in the middle of the night. This can be especially depressing when it is pouring with rain or very cold. In addition, in post-pandemic Britain, some camping sites may not provide all the facilities they once did, so having a toilet packed may make good sense, at least for the foreseeable future.

The modern camping toilet

If you think that a camping toilet is just a glorified bucket with a seat, then think again. There are plenty of smaller cassette style toilets, which were often only found in caravans, that have been specifically designed for camping under canvas. There are some good makes out there with detachable tanks that make emptying a much easier process and a manual flush to make things just a little nicer as well. The air-tight shutter valve, which opens when you use the loo, can be closed and can trap odours and is an invaluable feature.  One thing that it is really important to remember when using a camping toilet, however, is that the chemicals you use can help to really make a difference to how well it works.

Elsan Double Rinse – Pink

The important component of any camping toilet with a flush function is the liquid that is used to flush the “waste” away. Unlike a toilet in your home, which uses a lot of water to flush, a camping toilet uses a lot less water per flush so needs a little bit of help to ensure the toilet stays clean. Elsan Pink double rinse should be added to your flush tank so that when you use the flush it helps to rinse the bowl out and keep the toilet fresh. It can also help to remove odours.

Elsan Double Blue

Double blue has a powerful anti-bacterial formula that has been designed to kill the germs in your camping toilet and help to eliminate odours.

The two products have been specially formulated to be used together to help keep your camping toilet clean and hygienic and, more importantly, as odour free as possible. They are double concentrated, which means that you are able to use smaller doses of each when you fill the toilet so they will last longer. When it comes to keeping those odours at bay in your tent you certainly can’t go wrong using both double rinse and double blue in your camping toilet.
