After living aboard for 14 years now, I found out about Nature’s Head waterless toilets. I just didn’t think they could be small enough for a boat. Friends have had theirs for years – they were closet composters!
Having seen and heard of horrible disasters with conventional toilets and holding tanks, this option, combined with the inconvenience of pumping out, convinced me to go the composting way. I ripped out the old toilet and hoses – yay, so much more space! What a difference. Like a breath of fresh air.
No smell. No more pump outs. The trick is to ensure it is turned over regularly – at least once (the more the merrier) per day to oxygenate. Just double bag product for disposal or bury in a biodegradable bag. Peat Moss is dirt cheap from garden suppliers, or use coconut coir – the best option on a boat.
Not convinced? Ask Alan at ToiletsNZ for a price comparison against normal boat loos and installation costs.

We wanted to get in touch to say that we are suitably impressed with our Nature’s Head Waterless toilet!!
We’ve been away in our bus a few times now and have had no problems at all.

I have just installed a Natures Head waterless toilet in my tiny home and have found it is so easy to use and such a wonderful concept. My friends all cope too, mainly because I’ve left instructions on the wall. Emptying of the liquids is super easy. The emptying of the compost bin is also remarkably simple. The first time I just followed the instructions given to me and used a rubbish bag over the unit, into which everything went. There was no mess and it took about 5 minutes from start to finish. I’d mixed up the peat moss the day before so I could put that straight into the empty chamber and then just had to do the screws up on the sides once the toilet was repositioned. I’d be happy to talk to anyone who requires any further information.
