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. After a while, you will want to take the toilet outside and clean it out with the hose. You won't want to just keep dumping and refilling without occasionally cleaning out the tank really well in order to keep it clean. Also, due to the type of material the toilet is made out of, (quite porous), urine stains, which will eventually accumulate around the trap, can be very difficult to remove, . My husband had much difficulty in removing these stains, but eventually, after much scrubbing, he was able to remove most of them.
This is the ONLY compost toilet I found that would actually fit into our motor home. And even then, we had to cut down the platform which the toilet sits on; otherwise, it would have prevented one of the drawers in the bathroom from opening. As it is, that drawer only now opens partially, but it was worth the trade-off of having the toilet. Also, I am 5'6" and my feet still do not touch the floor while sitting down. Of course the fit will will depend on the floor plan of your RV or boat.
I would definitely recommend this toilet if you are looking for a smaller compost toilet that will fit in an RV because most of them are WAY TOO LARGE to fit in the smaller bathrooms of older RV's. My RV is a 1989.
All in all, I am very glad we bought this toilet and I would not want to go back to the flush type. Obviously, you also save water by not having a flush toilet. That could come in very handy should water become in short supply in the future - Don't laugh - now days anything and everything is possible.
I hope this helps anyone who is considering buying one of these toilets. Oh, one more thing ...... Larry, the gentleman who owns Nature's Head is very nice, helpful, and easy to get along with.
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.
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. My husband likes to use a coffee filter when going #2. I don't. Your choice.
You have to explain to guests how to use it. I do the girls. He does the boys. So that is a little weird.
The seat is a little narrow, but comfy enough, and the lid is very nice. The toilet is sturdy, and seems as if it will last a long time.
Update: I used to empy the liquids container every time we used our cabin. I was afaid not to. Now I empty it only when it gets full. There is no difference in the ick factor. Cheap plastic gloves are useful (and necessary when emptying the compost part). I empty the liquids container, then fill it partway with hose water, swirl the water, dump that, then replace the container into the toilet. You do not rinse the compost part of the toilet when you empty that.
UPDATE #2: We've owned and used the toilet for about 1.5 years now. With experience came some changes. A few months ago, we started to have a really bad smell in the bathroom. No, make that the cabin. We needed to keep the bathroom door closed all the time, and the windows in there open too. I called the company, and got wonderful advice -
1) Don't use composting soil. Use peat moss, which comes in a large plastic bag. It is dry-ish. I was told to wash out my toilet. Not fun, especially since I have a very limited water supply. But I did that. Then I added the peat moss and water, which were pre-mixed in a bucket. Be sure to add enough water so that the crank turns freely. I guessed too little, so I added some water and it worked perfectly. Since then, I added some more water. We have no bad smell now.
2) Then, we had small flies. Lots of them. Another call. I was advised to add 4 cups of diatomaceous earth, which you can purchase at a pool supply company. We did that. Also, I added a small piece of window screen to the air intake port on the side. I cut a round piece and it stays on with a rubber band. That seems to be working.
Overall, I still say this is a very good purchase for situations where you must have a non-flushing toilet. I wish the instructions included with the toilet mentioned using a piece of screen. Wait - it would have been best to include that in the box when it shipped. Plus the rubber band, of course. I also wish the hint about using the diatomaceous earth was included in the instructions book, too. It was my fault for not following the instructions to use peat-moss.
