I've had a sog on ours ever since we got ours they do work but I still think you have to put a small splash of chem in, also I change the carbon every year & have recently started using cooker hood carbon sheets which can be bought for a couple of quid...see how they work over the winter.but generally it is an extractor so your neighbours get the smell & not you

Sod the sog Mick, do what i plan
Remove all the bits from the bog and cut an hole in the floor, saves emptying it and saves you money as you've no chemicals to buy Very Happy

Only problem with a sog on the same side as the Hab door is the smell if your downwind affraid as your bog is at the rear no problems so go for it Mike, through the floor like Andy said.

Thing is the whole idea for a sog is to direct the odour outside & not inside
It is a very basic principle being a small extractor fan & a hose...simples.

The charcoal filter is to remove the smell on the way out.
Get on your back with a mastic gun and sort out the holes too! It must be an Elddis thing? my autocruise was all sealed around penetrations

Correct me if I am wrong, but if you use a SOG you don't use chemical - am I right?

Presuming I am right, if you don't use chemical, when you come to empty it surely it must be minging, especially in the hot weather like we have had.  Perhaps you have a strong stomach Mike, I sure hope so.  pale

Yes it smells when emptying but you don't have to wait until it's full because you don't want to waste blue loo LOL
I empty ours every morning, takes a few minutes as it is half empty.
You can throw in a cheap bio washing tablet (any supermarket brand) and this will counteract the smell at emptying
