Here’s the thing: if you are committed to a porta potty somewhere in your life you have to face one big issue: emptying it. I am one of those happy people who is not fazed by the sight and smell of human excrement on boats, in vans or in bushes. This toilet is as comfortable as any to sit on and use but where it shines is in the emptying. There is no feeble attempt to hide what you are doing, no spouts it vent buttons or any other leak prone holes in the tank. With this toilet the two halves are held together with easy external clips and the pouring out of the waste is find via a large hole which allows air to flow in and the brown sludge to flow out smoothly.
With my many and various experiences with leaky vent buttons and unreliable swiveling spouts I urge you to look harder at the simplicity and solid build of this toilet. If you fear the porta potty but crave the convenience and simplicity this is the one. Really. I sh*t you not.
We purchased this for an overnight campout. It held up very well. We put a couple pitchers of water in the reserve tank and it did exactly what it was suppose to do. The flush function worked well. Very easy to use and simple to empty when it was time. Great Investment!
These portable toilets are a bit small for me but a welcome convenience in camp when the time comes to go. I sit mine on a stump or blocks so it sits up a little higher. It usually lasts long enough to make it home to dump it in my toilet. No drips, no spills.
This product was well worth the cost in our first use after purchase. I camp in a pop up camper with myself and little kid and two dogs. Bathroom trips in the middle of the night were not realistic until now. We just set it up on the floor in the camper and even without the deodorant additive it did not stink the place up (we tried to only use it for urine, although the tiny human had one emergency deposit)
It was simple enough to flush and use that the three year old had no problems and sturdy enough that I was able to use it with no problem.
I was nervous dumping it, but I dumped most in the campground toilet then
I participate in camping events throughout the year, and these either provide smelly, dirty portajohns, or they're poop-in-the-woods events. I have had digestive issues for ages, so that was always a source of stress for me when I should be enjoying myself. This makes things SO much easier. It's comfortable to sit on, cleans up easily, and is portable (it is heavy when it's full of water, but still manageable). It props up easily on a regular toilet to drain. I bought this with a small pop-up tent (ie shower or changing tent) so that I would have a bit more privacy inside my bigger tent, and it's perfect.
Great product and terrific customer service. Received promptly and exactly as advertised.
I purchased the Porta Potty in March 2018 but it stayed in the box because I didn't need it. Until a week ago when my town suffered a five-day power outage. August 2020. When there is a power outage my household is unable to use the toilet or shower as we are below grade and need to run waste water through a sewage ejection pump. No electricity, no toilets or showers. So life is extremely difficult if there's a prolonged power outage. This was the real reason for my purchase. We can wash then water the flowers in the garden but, go to the bathroom? It was easy to set up the Porta-Potty. I added a Walex Porta-Pak for deodorizing and to treat waste in the tank. When the power was restored I emptied it into the toilet and flushed. I hosed it down with clean water, let it dry and stored it for another time. Excellent product. If I was a camper this would be one item I'd definitely take with me.
