Re: What is so bad about a Porta Potti?

We use a PP in our 25 footer. Mostly we go over the weekend. Two days is fine for 2 or 3 of us. Some trips are longer. It's a bit of a pain, but we'll take it out for 6 days at a time. We dump at a marina and once or twice, made sure we were out far enough and over the side. We use the biodegradable, non-toxic chemicals. Paper is not an issue. The effluence is a choco-slurry . . . no solids. Gross but good to know.

So . . . use the PP. Not a big deal and there when you need it.
