Re: What is so bad about a Porta Potti?
When I remodeled I built a 5 gallon bucket into the head with a toilet seat over top of it. Then made a fastening system so the bag wouldnt fall in. At your local plumbing outlet they sell a product used to deal with the water in a toilet when replacing. It is a powder that absorbs the liquid and turns to gel. This works great for #1 and takes care of any odor for a few days. Sometimes I come back the next day to straighten up the boat if we were out late. If someone needs to #2 the bag removal and disposal is on them. it helps to have another 5 gallon bucket with a lid for a holding tank on that unfortunate day when someone needs it. When I was using a porta potty it didnt matter what I did. There was always a spill somewhere between the head and the dumping station. The bag just makes more sense for the day/weekend sailer. Drop it in the trash can at the ned of the pier.
