Hey for those of you with Natures Head toilets did you use their standard Mushroom vent or something else? Hope to get one in this summer. Thanks

I haven't installed mine yet, but I bought one of these as described in this thread and plan to install it this spring.

So for all of you with the natures head.... how "moist" are your contents? Mine seem pretty moist....no odor, we are full timing. I'm guessing condensation? Does yours look like peet moss or.... "the other stuff"after a few weeks of steady use?

Love the toilet... just want to make sure things are breaking down right.thanks

Just how much extra room does a natures head take up vs a conventional toilet ? The room for maintenance is required to empty this thing ? Where to buy peat moss and how expensive is it to refill? Would those with experience consider this more, less or equally as expensive (and nasty) as maintaining a regular toilet?

Hello... An Airhead... like we have does not take up any more room than the rv toilet. Same space, same fit. The Natures head is the same also. As far as keeping the stuff for the solids we buy it in bricks and use it. Just add water and you have your mix, but add a little septic starter also. We do not put the paper in with the solids.. it goes in a closed container and is emptied daily.. No smell. We are full timing also and have bee using our for 3 years.

The bricks cost about $2.50 each and one will work for 7-10 days. It just has an earthy smell. Hubby says he prefers this to the black tank.. I can even do it.. no problem..The harvest can be put on the ground but not on vegetable gardens... we do that only on our property..

My natures head fit in a smaller footprint than the thetford that was installed. Luckily, I sold that one for $100 :-)

I had to build a very small base to clear the black tank hole area. I retained it so a future owner could go back to conventional if desired. I tapped into my black water tank vent piping for the natures head, and after bleach treating the black tank, I've significantly increased my gray water capacity.

Word of caution... the pee container fills quickly when full timing. I find myself emptying it every two to three days, but I believe this is because we freshwater spray the bowl after 1 or 2 to keep it clean.

We also love our NH toilet. Only used it for one camping season so far but no issues and no smell! I do think the "urinal" part of if fills up quickly... especially if you are drinking beer... but when we bought it they were having a special by throwing in an extra urinal container for free. You just need to find the right sized tote bag to carry it discretely to the rest rooms and flush the liquid contents down the toilet! Installation took 10 minutes. Note you need a 12 volt wire to run the internal muffin fan. We used the aluminum roof vent cover that people had mentioned on the forums and vented it through the adjacent closet. Not the most attractive toilet in the world, but NO BLACK TANK!

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds.

How did you connect the hose to the vent?

Hi 2Vet. Could you give a bit more detail regarding how you connected the hose to the vent at the roof? Did you add a screen? Will you be able to replace said screen easily?
Thanks,
Tim

Thanks for the installation pictures. Very useful. We'll definitely go that way ourselves.
