I'm looking at heading to Lucky Bay near Kalbarri during the easter school holidays, but new rules say you need a chemical toilet to be able to camp on the beach/in the dunes. So I'm in the market for one. What I want to know is, is there much of a difference between the more expensive toilets vs the cheaper ones? I'm planning on going as cheap as possible or will that cause me dramas down the track?

Sometimes you get what you pay for I think. I bought a cheap one on special at Anaconda several years ago.  Has rarely been used. A week or two here and there and it's still as good as new.

Get one with the biggest holding tank you can find though.

After a couple of brews I sure can be! Not sure how often it'll be used, but I definitely need one for this trip. BCF have quite a selection ranging from a small 10 litre one @ $49 up to I think it was 25 litres with some electrical function @ $339

My son had the one with the electric pump in it. Forgot to take the batteries out and after sitting in the garage for six months all the electrics were corroded.

Bigger tank means less trips to the dump point  Wink

I'm normally only away for 2 or 3 days at a time so wouldn't need a huge tank. I want to do bigger trips but we're saving for a house deposit so am limited with what I can do. I'm hoping to spend 4 days at lucky bay so need enough space for me and a couple of kids while trying to hold a reasonable budget, and throw in an ensuite pop up tent in there plus chemicals

I use 100% sodium percarbonate in our toilet.  It is the active ingredient in the nappy soaker.  Teaspoon in a clean cassette and a teaspoon after every number 2.

Works for me.

I buy it online but can get it from brewery supplies shops. Also used as a cleaner on brewing equipment.

The Jimmy Thunderbox did us well in our tenting/4wd trips.

We then progressed to a thetford chemical toilet and bought the taller one which is easier to sit on and get up.

Well worth the money as its still going 10 yrs strong.

If I was full time on the road, then I would try the napisan way.

But for the sheer aromatic perfumed visit to the loo, using the pink top tank additive is simply devine  Kiss
