No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Toilet Talk. (but only cassette users)

Sunday, 10th February 2013
Kings Bromley Marina.

We've recently tried a new product (well new to us) which removes the need to carry 4 litre containers of Elsan Blue onboard, for readers who haven't a clue what we're talking about, all toilet tanks on boats need a chemical added before use for obvious reasons.

Elsan now produce the chemical in dried form contained in a bag, all you do is drop a bag into an empty tank and add a little water which dissolves the bag.

 The container holds 18 bags and measures 140mm x 100mm so will make storage easier.

Each bag will treat 20 litres, our cassettes are 17 litres so that's ok, they also remove the risk of spillage and having to measure a dose.

We bought ours from Midland Chandlers for £9.98 which is reasonable when looking at online suppliers, we'll stock up when we call in again as we have a 15% discount voucher which runs out at the end of March.

WARNING  Don't confuse Elsan Blue with Esso Blue as adding paraffin to you toilet tank is not recommended and could be potentially dangerous, especially for smokers : ).

"Esso Blue - made to make your mouth water" - no, I must be mixing my 1970's adverts....
Thanks for the tip = much better than big bottles.
