2009 Neuvo Toilet Flush Tank Filler Hatch Empty 2009 Neuvo Toilet Flush Tank Filler Hatch

Hi,

Searched this site and couldn't get the confirmation I needed and just for my peace of mind, my manual tells me the small hatch about 1 ft above the toilet cassette is the filling point for the toilet flush.
Before I put the 7l in recommended in the handbook, could someone just confirm it is the filler for the toilet flush tank?
I can see a couple of what look like insulated wires running down into it and I don't want to blow up the electrics in a van we just bought.
Just want to make doubly sure.

Does the toilet look like this ? If so the filler you mention is the flush tank filler. The wires are probably the flush pump supply.

The loo looks exactly like that. I've taken photos of the loo and the hatch, but I can't see how to add them to my post.

Yes, you can fill it until you just see water appearing.

By the way, I recommend you do not use the pink fluid advertised as an additive for this as it tends to cause 'black bits' due to a build up of algae.

I know this happens as it took a few months to cleanse the tank in the Broadway we acquired last November. I've used Elsan Double Rinse for near twenty years in four vans with no "black bits" I think because the flush tank is always full and it is used a lot - we appreciate the fresh aroma from the bowl. It is possible to just spray the additive (diluted) onto the bowl to get the same effect rather than put it in the tank but, for me, that's another unnecessary operation.

Thanks Peter.

It's the Thetford pink stuff that causes the problem, even the new improved formula (Aqua Rinse Plus?) I found to be no better.

I've just ordered some of the Elsan Double Rinse based on your recommendation and will give that a go. 
up!

Yes it's the flush fill and we have the same problem with black bits
I think our van must have been stood for some time before we bought it because there were so many black floaters they were blocking the flush valve switch and keeping the flush running
After many fills and flushes I think I have cleared them
I'll give the aqua rinse + a go to see if that stops the build up recurring
The only other option is to drain down the flush tank and rinse it after every trip so_sad so_sad

As well as the toilet flush tank I had the same problem with the grey water tank, black bits breaking off the inside of the tank and blocking the drain pipe. It took a few months to sort that out but not a problem now the van is used regularly and the grey water drained most days.

Ralph, see my post above - I found the Aqua Rinse Plus just as bad for forming black bits as the original Aqua Rinse.

You may want to try the Elsan Double Rinse which Peter Brown recommended, that's what I've just ordered.

I have been using the Elsan for a couple of years, and it has gradually cleaned the majority of Thetford's black stuff out of the system.
