Can I purchase camping toilets at Anaconda?
Yes, you can. If you like the idea of going back to nature but still want to have some of the comforts of home, a camping toilet may be on your shopping list before your next adventure. But what type of toilet should you get? At Anaconda, we stock a range of different options for camping toilets, from basic to luxurious.
Why should I take a camping toilet, surely every campsite has facilities?
Yes, most organised campsites will have facilities that you can use, but you still have to consider some things in advance, such as:
Where on the campsite the facilities are located. If the facilities are some distance away from where you are pitching your tent, are they close enough for night-time use? Can the kids use them alone or will they need adults to take them there?
What condition the facilities are in. Unless you have used a particular campsite before, can you be sure that the facilities are of a standard that you are happy to use?
Whether there will be queues. At some peak times of the year, when many people are camping, there can be lengthy queues to use the toilets and shower facilities, and privacy can be less than optimal too.
What types of camp toilets are available?
The simplest option available is the “bog in a bag” solution. Anaconda’s Outhouse portable toilet is basically a luxury bin with a loo seat and lid, in which you suspend a bag. The bag can then be emptied or disposed of after use. If that is a little too basic for you, a chemical toilet is your next option. These are more like the traditional toilet shape, and use chemicals to keep them clean and to replace the water. They will usually involve having to empty containers every day or so. For full luxury, you can go for a flushing toilet with a built-in water tank.
Where would I put my camping toilet?
There are several options open to you. If you have a spacious tent, you could have the toilet in your tent. If that is not an option, you might want to check out the pop-up toilet and shower tents available here at Anaconda. Placed next to your tent, they will allow you the privacy you need and keep unpleasant smells away from the main tent.
What else is available in the range?
As well as accessories such as toilet roll holders, we also stock a number of chemicals for use with camping toilets. Different systems may require different solutions, so check product details for more information. As a general rule, there are two types of chemical, blue and pink.
Blue Liquid is poured into the waste container. Its job is to break down the solids, mask the smells, and reduce gas build-up.
Pink Liquid is only required if you have a camping toilet that flushes. You treat the water in your flush tank with it. When you flush, the Pink Liquid helps clean your toilet bowl and adds a protective layer to fight against bacteria.
