Good Evening,

I was not able to find much information about using a compost toilet. Has anyone made the switch and if so, any advice? Thanks.

We're picking ours up tomorrow. Don't have experience yet, but will check back in after a couple weeks of using it and let you know.

We would like to learn more also, we don't know much yet but it sounds easier to remove waste than making a trip to a pump-out station and never really achieving a clean empty holding tank again. I'm thinking of the potential space it could save also.

I had many expenses to contend with this past year so I elected to stay with my rarity and replace the pump. However, I am still very interested in a composte head down the road. Any feedback with your new unit? Thanks.

So far we're very happy with ours. We got a C-Head. We pulled out the full system including the 15 gallon holding tank in the vberth which opened up a lot of extra storage space.

The only downside is that we had to get the "Box Angled Back Model" in order to have enough clearance for the door to close which meant going from a 5 gallon bucket to a 3 gallon bucket. So as a liveaboard our time between cleaning it out is only a couple weeks when not at the dock instead of a month.

Our previous head was awful. Constantly leaking, and always smelly. There is absolutely zero smell what-so-ever when the head is not open (being used). Even then the smell is not bad, and comes mostly from the liquids. The solid waste doesn't ever seem to smell - which is amazing.

Now if we could only get rid of the diesel smell we'd be doing great!
