I'm thinking about one of these for a second bathroom in a "plumbing
Anyone have any experience with them? Or other suggestions to add a
toilet without adding plumbing? (Aside from chamber pot, LOL!)
Thanks in advance,
I've never hear of his item, until I went to the ink you provided.
All I can say is make sure your county(state?) code allows for this.
I did a quick web search, and there are various mentions
of these with state permits, etc
And also, your home owners insurance covers if any thing goes wrong.
The model I looked at on their web page only says it has a 1 year
Its really expensive, not including permits , etc.
Why would you switch to this ?
A friend had a similar gas fired one in a vacation trailer on his land. It
worked. It has been some years, but I don't recall any odor from it, at
least inside. Considering the cost, I'd certainly look for a way of
plumbing a standard type of toilet, or one with an effluent pump if need be.
When we were growing up we had a gas-fired toilet (instead of electric)
at our camp. It was pretty much junk. It takes a lot of energy to
boil away liquids, a real lot. And when burning 'solids' the smell was
pretty bad - and the neighbors obviously didn't care for that. Then
you have to clean the ash out of it and wash the bowl (gross). Lastly,
with the gas-fired model anyway, the high heat combined with caustic
substances corroded the firebox and created recurring maintenance
I would rather have a chamber pot or even a composting toilet based on
a five gallon bucket (do a web search) than an incinerator toilet.
Best of all is a regular flush toilet, even if you have to retrofit the
house to get it installed...
That's my 2 cents...
I had one of these up in Maine while
I was waiting for my septic to be installed.
They are a pain. They work pretty well
with solid waste but liquid takes forever
to evaporate. They use a lot of juice as
It's my understanding that the gas-fired ones
do work well.
here's a couple of alternative ideas. Not your granny's pottty.
LOL. Never heard of these. What will they think of next?
I can imagine someone coming home half in the bag and throwing a load of
Or visa-versa, do a ha-ha and toss a toilet seat on the washer.
