We have had this toilet for about a year. It took a bit of trial and error to "get it right" as far as how much Coconut Fiber to put in and how much water to mix with it. On the Nature's Head website, it says to fill the tank to 2" BELOW the agitator. We have pretty much boiled it down to 1.5 bricks of Coconut Fiber and about 5 C water (You may have to add a little bit of water at a time to get the consistency just right). There are only two of us using this toilet. The longest we have ever been able to go between "dumps" is maximum 3 weeks, but usually only two weeks. They say you can go up to 6 weeks between dumps, but we have never been able to achieve this. Of course, it depends on how often it is used. We are both home all day, so we are not using someone else's toile during the day, like at work or elsewhere.

My husband does the dumping. It CAN be an unpleasant job and also can be a little heavy for a woman to do by herself. My husband just simply dumps it into a 33 gal garbage bag and then puts that garbage bag inside another 33 gal garbage bag. He then puts the bag(s) outside in a 5 gal pail, (with lid and holes in the lid for ventilation), for a couple of weeks to allow it to "compost" to some degree. We live in a place where there are individual garbage bins and also a large garbage bin in which the individual garbage bins are dumped weekly. After about 2 weeks, we take the double 33 gal bag and simply dump it in the large trash bin.

What I especially like about this toilet is, if we want to dry camp, we do not have to worry about a place to "dump." That is a MAJOR PLUS, especially since we are "full timers"! We feel that this alone is well worth the "trouble" of having to dump every couple of weeks.

We purchased this toilet to install in our off-the-grid cabin. All the product components were well packed, and the toilet arrived in good shape, in a very large, but sturdy box. Installing the toilet was straight-forward. Installing the required vent was not. The instructions for this, as others have noted, are basically nonexistent. The company could and should do much better than leaving you to figure it out for yourself. Since our cabin is off a long, bad, dirt road, we wanted to get it right. No quick trips to the store! Nevertheless, we got the vent installed. As for power, right now it is connected to a 12 volt battery.

We've used the toilet for nearly a year, on several weekends a month. With two of us, I have emptied the compost section only twice. Not pleasant, but tolerable. I empty the liquids container much more often though. Again, not pleasant, but tolerable. This toilet is not for the squeamish!

I would have rated this as a 5 star except the instructions for the required vent were so poor. But remember, this is a composting toilet, and you have to do something with the resulting waste. Figure out how you are going to manage that before you purchase this toilet.

I went to the garden store and bought composting soil, and that has worked well. We take the composted waste away in a double plastic bag to dispose. Because there is always at least a week between a last use and when I empty the container, the composting is well along. However, to use it in your yard you would want to finish it in a stand-alone composter like you would purchase at a garden store. As for using it at our cabin, we are on National Forest land, and gardens are not allowed.

We use regular 2-ply paper, just like at home.

We had the earlier series for 2yrs in our cabin, 2 adults full time, no problem, very satisfied! We went to order a newer flap after 2 years & the manufacturer offered us a deal on this newer series. Both are exactly what they say they are. We have upgraded the 2" fan to a 4" in-line inductor fan, but wasn't "needed", the 2" fan worked our means well for the 1st 3yrs.

If you look around, think about the cost (as Nature's Head is half the price & comes with a fan, not optional with the sunpro $1800 units!) think about the look ( This is the size and shape & feel of a flusher, not some oversized, overly complicated tower) think about if it's user friendly ( Natures head Entire unit can go out to the porch, and a standard 13gal kitchen trash bag used for unloading and dumping, not forcing you to carry a nasty cat litter pan thru the house like other models.)

Heck, we still have the earlier series unit in the garage for whatever future use, even after 2yrs of service it cleaned up in an hour like factory new.

Do your research, do the numbers, actually go look at units in person, you cannot go wrong here.

(We went this road when building as a septic would have cost us $8,000!)

These are good sellers up in the Amish area's of Ohio, and that's why we trusted the product.

Just think about it, then you'll see.

Like the original poster, we live in our RV full-time. We chose this brand because we wanted a toilet that didn't depend on electricity to keep it from overflowing. The simpler, the better for us.

We also purchased and installed the solar vent shed. This is fine for summer in our climate, but not useful for winter or cloudy days. We recently had a rare sunny day here in the NE, and I did not hear the solar-powered vent running. This is a concern, because it is only a year old. We also installed a 12V van, wiring into the system and running the vent hose up the pipe for the (now unused) black tank. I'm unhappy about the solar vent, though, because $165 is too much to pay for solar technology that peters out after a few months.

Like the original poster, we find that 2-3 weeks is our maximum hold time for two people full-time. I'm not sure where the 6 weeks claim came from. Maybe for one slightly-irregular user. Urine hold time is about two days (not mine, the bucket's).

We "flush" the Head with a squirt bottle of water. So, it's not 100% water-free, but about as close as it gets.

We haven't yet tried coconut fiber - we're still using peat, which is cheap but bulky. We're on the lookout for reasonably-priced coir to try, instead, as it would be a lot easier to haul a brick or two at a time than 2 cubic feet of peat. More sustainable, too.

We've been weatherized and living stationary all winter, so it has been wonderful not to have to unskirt and go to a dump station all winter. It eases my consumer's conscience, also, not to pee into drinking water every time I visit the toilet.
