The waste storage capacity of portable toilets is measured in litres. The tanks of traditional products usually hold between 10 and 26 litres, depending on the model and manufacturer brand. The larger the tank capacity, the greater the product's autonomy, that is, the longer it can be used without the need to dispose of waste.
The maintenance of portable toilets consists basically in the supply with water and biodegradable solvents (or other chemicals indicated by the manufacturer), the disposal of waste and cleaning and sanitation. With proper maintenance, a good quality product can be used for years without showing damage or signs of wear.
The cleaning of portable toilets, in general, is simple: after the disposal of waste, the toilet can be washed in full with soap and water. As the product is made of plastic and already operates with specific chemical products for its model and material, the use of conventional cleaning products - those used to clean the tableware toilet - is unnecessary and little recommended, as they may cause damage to the material.
The size of the portable toilet will vary according to the brand, model and its storage capacity. Larger capacity models tend to be more robust, while those with smaller reservoirs are more compact. Choose according to where the toilet will be used. Motor homes, trailers and boats usually have reduced space, so it is essential that the dimensions of the product are compatible with the area where it will be placed.
