AirHead Dry Toilet
At last, a go anywhere essential for comfort.
Air Head Dry Toilet is
uniquely simple. By separating liquids from solids the volume of solid
human matter is significantly reduced. Which means that in
approximately five gallons, perhaps a seasons worth of weekend use, may
be held. This estimate is based on solid matter volume for two persons'
use twice every weekend for five months: 80 uses.
Much like a household toilet the Air Head Dry Toilet has a bowl and an actuator which provides a "flush". The main difference due to the toilet's waterless operation is the use of a paper bowl liner which acts as a carrier for the solid matter on its way to the solid tank.
With a combination of agitation and desiccation solid matter is rendered non-offensive inside the large tank. Additionally, the unit has an integral 12 volt fan that provides a constant negative pressure which pulls moisture out of the living space. In many cases a noticeable improvement in air quality will be perceived upon opening the companionway hatch after lay-ups.
Liquids are collected in the smaller forward tank. Our unit's liquid tank makes an otherwise unpleasant chore very easy a with convenient carrying grip so that you don't have to become intimate with the contents, and its wide mouthed aperture will keep the contents emptying smoothly into any standard commode. The liquid tank will hold approximately four days use per person if used exclusively.
Additionally, the Air Head Dry Toilet may be integrated with an existing holding tank system creating holding capacity for both solids and liquids far beyond what many medium and small boat owners are used to. This is because the tanks take on no flushing water and are free to hold just what they need to.

Q: What happens to the odors in the solid
Q: Has this design been tested?
Q: Where do you empty the solids?
Following the instructions provided with the unit on this topic, the solid tank contents may buried in ornamentals or sprinkled on top depending on conditions. A once a season emptying scenario is possible where a family of two consistently uses the Air Head Dry Toilet for five months twice each weekend totaling 80 uses or less. This amount of usage allows tank contents sufficient time to dry or break down. After a seasons worth of boating the contents of the solid tank will be dry as a desert or slightly moist. In relative terms of course, the state of these contents will be surprisingly pleasant, having only a slight musty smell. This is assuming the tank is emptied the following spring or a few weeks after the last use. So the best scenario is to empty the following spring during commissioning.
Q: Can the fan be turned off for periods when for
instance the boat will be on a mooring?:
