What is everyone using for a porta potty? What units will fit in the "head" compartment?

I have the camco one with the smaller tank. Works well enough but the head is very crammed so it gets used far less than over the swim deck. I have found that some women would rather be counter balanced while hanging out over the water from the swim deck. Guys are of course not shy on the swim deck either. All of this assuming that the person in need of relief does not want to get in the water.

i bought the curve a few months back with the added floor bracket. It does indeed fit, but i had to remove my shelf and trim out a spot on the vertical lip of the shelf to be able to access and use the flushing Mechanism. I prob could have moved the shitter over towards the helm station, but it wouldnt be centered and that wouldnt fly in my OCD world. Seemed like the best and easiest fix. The curve is still a virgin on my boat, but after thorough inspection, It looks like itll take a load like a champ!!!

Nice small package. I have sat on the device to insure it supported my weight. I hope it is never used.

I looked at some of the rating on the curve.. people love it until the auto flush stops working which it seems happened after very few uses..

I bought one of these from Costco a few years ago for $30 never used it but stood on it a few times just to verify it could handle the weight.

Are they all named "SS Relief" like they are at lakes local to the SF Bay Area?

I don't believe I've ever looked for a name. Good question. I'll check it out this summer.

Here is a screen shot of a related post I started on years ago. If available, I'd pull anchor to use this instead of the port a potty onboard. No clean up involved and it is always anchored in the no wake zone so you never have to worry about getting splashed.

I have on board the Dometic 970 2.6 gallon and use the Bio Pak Enzyme. Hardly ever gets used. For kid emergencies or ladies that need/prefer versus hopping in the water (especially early season when the water is a bit chilly still). It is a great option and is very easy to use and maintain. And it fits perfectly in the head compartment.

I also use the the Dometic 970 2.6 gallon unit. It does indeed fit perfectly. We tried one larger but it was nearly unusable, as an adult had to bend in half to fit over it. This unit is realistically sized for the compartment and not difficult to remove and reinstall for cleaning. I do however use the liquid waste digester instead of the packs.

I have the dometic as well. My only regret was not mounting it with a small turn to the left to give right handed people more elbow room to wipe.

Going on four years with liquid waste only in it but remind everyone that uses it that if they dump in it they must dump it at the end of the day. This may be the only boat rule I have or enforce.

For the more frugal among us, Here is a link to a dyi bucket toilet, even uses a pool noodle and has a toilet paper holder.

No Porta for me as I don't want to promote others to using the restroom on the boat. Jump in the water or find another spot Hahaha.

Love the sky bucket! Yet at bother user for a bucket.

On Tahoe, I've learned to ask if anyone needs a pit stop when in emerald bay as they have a dock you can tie up to four 15 minutes.

Otherwise I have a bucket with a toilet seat on it and had a plastic bag with chemicals in it.. There rule however is:. If you need to use it, that's why it is there. It must be returned in the same condition it was found. Stop far no takers.

If Carol that a well-executed plan!
