FAQ

(The Answers You Need)

Do composting toilets smell?

No, composting toilets no not smell and will not stink out your van, boat, tinyhome or cabin!  When emptying the loo, there is no unpleasant odour, instead, the composted material looks and smells earthy - like a forest floor.

Can you pee in a composting toilet?

Yes you can pee in a composting toilet. Our composting toilets are designed to separate the pee from the poop to eliminate any nasty odours. 

Do you have to empty a composting toilet?

Yes, composting toilets need emptying but much less frequently than chemical toilets. From our experience, they're much less unpleasant to empty than chemical toilets because they don't have an unpleasant smell and the solids simply resemble dirt.

Where do I empty my composting toilet?

Solids from composting toilets can be put in a biodegradable bag and disposed in a regular rubbish bin. The law permits disposal of human waste in this manner to due to the need to dispose of both baby and adult diapers. Our toilets are specially designed to make this step easy and quick. Liquids from composting toilets can be poured down a drain or onto the nearest thirsty looking bush!

When do I empty my composting toilet?

The solids section of our composting toilets typically need emptying every 2-4 weeks depending on the level of usage. You can look into the chamber to check the level and we would advise emptying when the chamber around two thirds to three quarters full. 

Can I empty my composting toilet into another composting toilet?

Emptying your composting toilet into a bigger composting toilet - at a national park, say - will not do harm to the toilet as there are no chemicals. However, composting toilets are sized for the anticipated usage and will not cope in the long run if everyone were to do this.
