    Default Which toilet paper

    hi all,

    we have two manual toilets going to a waste tank. Can i ask what is the best toilet paper to use so as to minimise the chance of me having to do some unblocking duties!!

    thanks

    It doesn’t matter which brand you use if you never put any down the toilet. That is what we and I think many other boat owners do and have never had a blockage. Also make sure you pump out with lots of strokes, easier if you have a sea toilet, with holding tanks there may have to be a compromise I guess.

    Chandlers sell marine toilet paper for the purpose.

    Indeed they do, but it is not very “robust” !! Better to use normal grade, whatever you would use at home, and NOT put it down the loo.

    Either spend a fortune on the Marine Grade or get the cheap version in Tesco etc which does break down. They are more or less the same.

    Usually cheapest and thinnest. Always put it down the loo. If I couldn’t put it down the toilet then the wife would soon stop boating!

    I've had various boats over many years and have used all types of toilet paper and have never had a blockage caused by toilet paper. Worst blockage was caused by crystals from p155 narrowing the pipe so much that anything would block it. Boiling water and vinegar did the trick that time, once I'd worked out what the blockage was!
