Hi-Gear 10 Litre Lightweight Portable Flushing Toilet, Camping Toilet, Emergency Toilet, Ideal for Camping, Festivals, Fishing Trips and Travelling, Camping Equipment
About this deal
Portable flush toilets need chemicals. You need pink chemicals for the flush-water tank to remove grime and eliminate odour, and blue and green chemicals in the waste tank to break down waste and remove gas build-up. Odour-neutralising agents: These combat unpleasant smells, ensuring a more comfortable restroom experience. If the Air Head is on the large side, another option, recommended by boat owner Andrew Polson is the Simploo Waterless Composting Toilet, which is made in the UK.
Educating users: Display instructions for proper toilet use to prevent misuse and maintain cleanliness.The Hi-Gear consists of an outer shell which uses a glossy plastic to disguise the fact that this is a toilet – it resembles a footstool to the untrained eye! Some things in life shouldn’t be complicated too much. The Carplife Bivvy Loo takes that mantra and applies it to one of life’s essential processes. The end result is a camping toilet which does its job well, can be folded away unobtrusively and renders the ‘end product’ biodegradable too – we love the simplicity of it. Your portable toilet uses a variety of chemicals to mask the smell and sight of the waste and also to protect its users from bacteria and potential disease.
When folded it takes up very little space, but expands to a height of 1.9m and over a square metre of floor space. The updated model we had to review included a rain cover which could be used to cover a mesh opening at the top of the tent. The mesh is useful to allow unpleasant odours to escape! The bags are sealed afterwards with a drawstring. He then double-bags them and keeps them in an old flare box until he’s ashore and can dispose of them in the household waste – as you would a child’s nappies.The liner bags contain special powder which combines with the waste to produce a neutral end gel. The bags can then be safely disposed of in any bin. This is really useful and means you don’t have to search around for an Elsan point or dog waste bin. Dyes: The blue colour serves two purposes – it masks the appearance of waste and helps users identify a functioning toilet. Not cleaning your portable toilets can also have repercussions for the environment, especially if any of the fluid leaks into the surrounding area. Because of the chemicals contained in a portaloo, the vegetation and ground surrounding the toilet could be damaged.
But the times they are a-changing. The Covid-19 pandemic has forced everybody to reassess their hygiene habits in a world where it seems like more people than ever are camping or pursuing outdoor hobbies such as fishing, hunting or mountain biking.The robust Blue Diamond Nature Calls Composting Toilet takes loads up to 200kg. It has an integrated composter under the seat, which collects solids and allows them to decompose and slide downwards, to be removed via a flap as compost. At the top end of the market, Thetford’s Porta Potti 565 has an electric (battery-powered) flush or manual.
