Seriously I lived full time for a year in the caravan and used one of these things and never had an issue with it as long as you have some common sense.
The biodegradable bags for Thunder Boxes and Elemental Portable loos are available from BCF (and I imagine other camper places) FOR 12 BAGS FOR $15. Carry it in....Carry it out!
BTW I ended up giving the Companion Portaloo away for free to a young bloke off Gumtree who wanted it for his wife and kids.
I empty mine in the loo (at home) all the time. I have escaped any splashes etc thus far.
I use oxy action laundry soaker (potassium percarbonate) which is fine for septic use. It activates immediately in the portable loo.
Sorry, it is sodium percarbonate. All good for septics.We have a septech system, not sure if that would upset the treatment or not.
Probably would we can’t use bleach or jiff ect.
It's less about the concept of 'best' than it is about what fits your circumstances. I haven't found a portable that I am fully comfortable with, but they are a necessity when free camping. When buying one, you need to consider the sizes: i.e. its capacity, dimensions, where you store it and then where it is placed for use. Is it for a caravan, camper, tent en suite or domiciled in the wagon while you sleep in canvas? Then, you should consider its type and servicing: chemical, composting, cassette, etc. After that, take a punt and buy one...... or a long handled shovel.The very thought of them calling themselves a "portable toilet" or a "dontal toilet" makes me roll my eyes in irritation. Can anyone suggest me the best portable toilets? Not, until I actually have to use one!
The very thought of someone suggesting the best portable toilets to me makes me want to run as fast as I can from the Internet, out my window and away I go. But I have come to realise that there are a couple of different things that people might want in their bathroom. If you are looking for a large amount of room, then a small toilet might be what you are looking for. If you are a young family that often has members from the local gay community staying with you, then maybe a toilet with a double door for privacy is what you need.
What is the best portable toilets? There isn't a single person or company that can make a definitive answer to that question because every brand, model and design are different. One company might like a certain type of design, while another might not, even if they think it looks great. There are too many individual opinions to be mentioned here but the ones I am particularly interested in are:
Most caravan parks have one and campgrounds in town showgrounds are generally set up with dump points. Many camping apps have a function to locate dump points. Not always reliable, but worth getting. If I can't find one, I empty it at home in the toilet when 'she' is out shopping! I have found where campers have 'buried' theirs in the bush. NOT very nice!!For those that use them
What are the approved methods for disposal ?
I have never actually seen a dump point in Vic ( though I am sure they exist )
also can you please empty into septic or sewer systems ?
