Thetford Porta Potti Qube 365
Opens our rating Thetford porta potti 365 - one of the most popular biotoilets. Due to its low weight (slightly more than 4 kg) and small dimensions (lower tank — 21 liters, upper — 15 liters), it can be used in almost any conditions: when going to a country house, where there is no septic tank or centralized sewage, during a hiking trip, with care for a disabled person.
It can be installed even in a small room, for example, in a trade tent. Made of high-tech plastics (even when operating outdoors, the company guarantees the strength of materials for ten years). Equipped with a piston pump for flushing clean water. It is designed for approximately 50 uses without cleaning the tank (for a family of three people it will be enough for about a week). The waste tank indicator will indicate when maintenance is required.

We had a sick relative for a long time who could not move around the apartment even on crutches. For her, the bio-toilet was a real salvation. When she learned to change herself from the bed by herself, the problem with caring for the patient was successfully solved.
The supercompact dry closet (317х333х387) of cassette type from the Swedish brand is made of durable plastic and can withstand loads up to 250 kg. The lower waste tank has a volume of only 10 liters, the upper one holds 8.7 liters of flushing liquid. Device for a weekend of a family of 3-4 people. Rational solution for a caravan or a small yacht.

Thetford Porta Potti Excellence

The accumulation tank for effluent is quite voluminous - 21 l, the flushing one has a volume of 15 l, the device is designed to be used without emptying for 5-7 days for a family of three or four people. Neutralization of waste is achieved thanks to liquid septic tanks, which are necessarily added to the accumulation and flushing tank.

In the flush tank, the water is poured manually through a special funnel (included). In the lower part there is a compartment for a roll of toilet paper. The brand’s birthplace is the Netherlands. Three years warranty.

Bought a dry closet for giving, the compact device, transported in a car trunk. We do not notice unpleasant odors, however, we pour out waste every time after the weekend, do not expect full filling of the tank. For comfort, purchased an additional soft pad on the seat.

Separett Villa 9011
Separett villa 9011 - one of the most «long-life ”dry closets: a family of three will need to fill two 23-liter tanks for at least two months. It does not use any chemistry.

Toilet paper and solid waste fall into the accumulation chamber, where it is blown around and dried by a compressor around the clock, decreasing in size several times. The camera is closed, and access to it opens only when landing on the toilet. Waste is used as fertilizer for plants not intended for human consumption.

Select the type of dry closet
An overview of the most common types of dry closets will help make a choice.
If electricity is supplied to the installation site of the device, there are several solutions:
Dry closet with freezing. This is a “freezer” tank: the waste is packaged in biodegradable bags and cooled to low temperatures, which guarantees the absence of an unpleasant odor. Such devices are emptied quite often due to a small collection capacity, for example, in a compost pit. Suitable for installation on board an airliner, and for mobile offices, and for the care of patients with disabilities.
Dry closet with burning function. The recyclable waste, directly in the storage container, is heated to high temperatures and turns into ashes. And it can already be disposed of as ordinary household garbage. The devices are suitable for all possible cases of installation, the restriction is only in a high price.
Dry closets without electricity
Models without the use of electricity are also divided according to the type of disposal:
Peat dry closet with dry washout - model with backfilling of waste with peat mixture, absorbing moisture and neutralizing odors. A great option for giving or gardening: the contents of the storage tank of the device, already ready for “ripening”, is emptied into the compost pit and is used, after a while, as a fertilizer.
Cassette dry closet - waste products are collected in an airtight container - a cassette, where they are neutralized with the help of added septic tanks. When the container is filled, its contents are poured into the waste pit or sewer. Such models are suitable for long-distance buses, campgrounds.
But in these devices from the electrical network or batteries (accumulators) can work, for example, a flushing pump, mixer, heated compost.
Which bio-toilet is better to buy?
It all depends on the scope of application. For patient care or short trips, light and miniature Thetford porta potti 365 (the leader in popularity among composting toilets) and Dometic 972 are the best option. Peat composting composting toilets are most often chosen for the dacha. If we are talking about long-term residence in the country, and there is no opportunity to mount the sewage system, then more spacious models will help. Well, for those who are not accustomed to deny anything to themselves, Separett Flame 8000 or Biolan Icelett, for example, would be an excellent solution.
