C-Head compost toilet-Where do you get the plastic bottles?

Post by innervations » Mon Feb 09, 2015 4:34 am

I got the absolute sh%#$ last weekend with the bloody porta potti that leaked yet again and we ended up with urine all over the floor of the head and running into the galley area :-(

My fault as lost the rubber o-ring on the screw on lid.

Anyway, ordered a C-Head http://www.c-head.com/C-Head.html cutaway base model which should be here in 7-10 days.

Problem, where in Australia to get the 1 gallon (4 litres approx) plastic bottles for the urine? They seem to be everywhere in the US for juice and milk etc but all are much smaller here. Tried specialist plastics but they only sell dozens in an order - not 2 :(

Anyone have this toilet and sourced the bottles?

I wonder whether the 4 litre commercial juice bottles would be the right size????
Cant sleep in a boat or motorhome with the SMELL of your own P&P even with chemicals....just the chemical smell now gets me so we installed an AIRHEAD...works great and is portable from our motorhome to our Mac
Just have to be very very careful if using on the road that the liquid drainage is correct ie into the tank and not into the solids container...not a problem on the water as the boat is floating level...most of the time...not sure I'd want to go with the mac on maximum heel
