Amazing how if you follow instructions and have common sense that things work out correctly.

Exactly...like enabling the fan to keep moisture at bay which the video indicated was not done.

Got the call from CanAm today that our Nature's Head is installed and ready to go - so to speak.

The toilet was $1100 shipped, installation was $750. I went with a solar fan, so they didn't even had to wire the vent into the trailer.

Thumbs up

I wanted to return to this thread after 3 months of ownership or 92 days with a follow up post.

I wrote a Q&A style post on my blog of life with the toilet: https://boldandadventurous.com/Life-...osting-toilet/

For anyone who wants to argue about legality of disposal here is a summary of my research, which applies to the United States of America taken from my above blog post:

The Environmental Protection Agency has no jurisdiction over the byproducts of a dry toilet as long as excreta are not referred to as “fertilizer”. Thus, individual states regulate composting toilets.

Many questions about have focused on the disposal in landfills. And the EPA does regulate those. Today’s landfills are designed to minimize their impact on the surrounding environment. They are built and operated to prevent contamination of groundwater and surface water, prevent the release of methane gas, and prevent unstable soil conditions. In most landfills, garbage is added in a series of layers and covered with heavy soil to prevent water from seeping through and percolating into underground water.

Most of the regulation of the composting toilets and disposal is for housing. No one cares about RVs apparently.

I have compiled an entire STATE BY STATE break down of every law regarding composting toilets CLICK HERE for your viewing and reading pleasure. It contains every source, mailing address, point of contact and phone number for government agencies of source.

A quick summary.

The EPA regulates landfills. Landfills can accept human excreta.

These states don’t give a literal poo and have no laws or regulations:

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Utah, Vermont, Wisconsin, Wyoming

These states have regulations about composting toilets. Some of it long and boring. Almost all regarding housing. I am not a lawyer. This is my interpretation.

Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia

I have been using the Natures Head for over a year and empty my compost into a black 30 gallon trash bag and take it to the dumpster in the RV park. It's not a big deal nor am I under any regulations.

Has anyone tried to divert the urine to the black tank? Maybe place a hose and funnel under the toilet ring, instead of the urine bottle and put that liquid into the black tank. I’m thinking with vinegar also in the black tank to cut down odors this would work.

Just take the P bottle dilute it 8/1 with water and find a deserving shrubbery to fertilize.
