Chlorine evaporates.

It does its job and then it leaves.

I think it is an ideal disinfectant as well as a great black tank destinkum.

If you're mixing chlorine bleach and urine, I sure hope I'm upwind of your black tank vent.

I put it straight down the toilet where it does its job in the black tank.

In many municipalities chlorine is mixed with urine in every toilet bowl,,, in many swimming pools also.

Hey Bolder, how has it been getting the kiddos to use the composting toilet correctly? Do they get it? I'm taking my wife and 2 little ones on the road full time in late 2016 and we also have the nature's head composting toilet. Should be interesting potty training with a composting toilet!

We just started potty training with the oldest, so we are not at that point yet.

So random thought. I've been meaning to put a vent to move air through my battery box, which is on the opposite side of the bathroom wall behind the toilet. And yesterday, the temp climbed to 91F in there, so I need to get started on that project. I have computer fans already for the project to circulate air.

And I thought, what if I use another hose to move this warm air into the composting toilet on the intake side?

I dunno, I'm thinking that if you have one fan blowing into the terlet and another one sucking out, an imbalance in the Force could create some interesting problems inside the rig.

I doubt any puppies or kittens would die or that you'd get sued by some random roving toilet law expert, but you'd probably know about the issue pretty quick.

Yup. That is why it is legally mandated in many or most (? I only know about Texas) municipal jurisdictions as the only approved final method of drinking water disinfection. It is a most useful chemical, tried and proven for many decades now.

So water update: I believe this has doubled how long our water use lasts. We have all bathed, done lots of dishes, bathed the kids more than once. And we haven't touched the water jugs yet. We're at 14 days tomorrow since I filled up the water.

Not true. While chlorine does evaporate over time when exposed to air, it persists in the water in distribution lines.

Persistence is one of the reasons it is used in water systems because it is able to disinfect the water from contaminants that enter the system downstream from the source treatment site.

Another common indicator of this persistence is that when too much chlorine is added, most users can smell and taste it at their faucets.

We are at 17 days and we still haven't had to dump our black tank.

Found ourselves sitting around the campfire this weekend taking about NH toilets and the possibility of getting one into our empty shell Ambassador. We have new tanks underneath but no spin welds yet and no holes in floor.

Lots of possibilities.

Those tanks are good to have if your ever decide to sell.

My black tank is plugged and will always be another option
