Product Overview

The Laveo portable toilet from DryFlush is a lightweight, waterless, odorless and chemical-free commode that supplies the comforts of home in any locale no matter how remote. This unit is easily transportable at just 26 lbs. and has a full-size toilet seat with a hearty weight capacity of 500 lbs., but its best feature is a revolutionary method for disposing of waste. A double-layered bagging system goes to work each time the toilet is flushed, effectively compartmentalizing anything in the bowl with a twist-and-seal action. Refill cartridges hold 15-17 flushes (and odors) and are easily replaced without users coming into contact with waste-simply extract the liner bag and throw it in the trash.

  • Self-contained portable toilet does not require venting, water, chemicals or electricity

Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used full time in a tiny home?

Could a couple use this full time in a tiny home? More specifically, can you extend the cartridge life by adding peat moss or saw dust scoops to urine like a regular composting toilet. Could we save the flushes for #2?
Asked by: SaveOnBags
I have had this unit for six months with no issues. I use a little bit of shredded paper and it works fine. It's economical and absorbent. It will make the bag a little heavy when changing but small price to pay to not have spillage. I normally use it twice between flushes with no problems.

How long can you leave used bags unattended in the toilet?

If I had this for a small cabin and only used it a couple of times on sporadic weekends, can it sit months?
Asked by: mike
It can sit, but depending on weather you may have odor. I'd make sure there was no waste seepage through the twist before leaving it. We've left ours for a few weeks at a time, in our trailer, between camping trips.

Dry Flush Chemical Free Odorless Portable Lightweight Electric Waterless Toilet is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU WOULD CONSIDER PURCHASING: I used this "toilet" for a three month trip aro... PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU WOULD CONSIDER PURCHASING: I used this "toilet" for a three month trip around the country and it was an epic fail. First impression is that is poorly made, like someone made it in their basement with off the shelf parts. Before leaving I checked to make sure it was working correctly and to my surprise, it didn't work. It was flushing constantly, without pushing the flush button. Laveo knew about this problem and did replace the toilet, but they did not replace the refill cartridge. Plus, the company rep, although helpful, seemed very emotionally deflated with her job, which is not professional or helpful. The second one arrived and at first inspection seemed it was working correctly, but that would turn out to be a false statement. I could never get the film to seal the first time, so I always had to flush twice. That means the 15-17 flushes per cartridge is again, a false statement, I was able to get 5 uses per cartridge. That works out to be about $5 per use, what a deal! Because there was no way to have it replaced on the road, I had to make due. After flushing twice per use and thinking it was sealed from odor, that would be, again-again, a false statement, I will just say, smelly-smelly. I now realized that I can no longer trust this toilet from working as advertised, so I discontinued use. So now I have a $600 tent hold down and space consumer. I'm now back from my trip and I contacted Laveo, in hope that they would stand behind their product, again I was disappointed. I was hoping for a prorated refund or at least another replacement, but after a week of phone calls and half dozen emails and a ridiculous amount of excuses, I had to settled on this toilet being "repaired". There reason was, they only warranty this toilet for 90 days, even though, at the time of this dispute, nowhere on their website, owners manual, box/packaging, or toilet this there any warranty info, so I guess they can just make it up as they go along, not very professional. After speaking with the company I purchased this toilet from, they told me directly that Laveo knows about these problems, but Laveo will never admit this, they will just keep making excuses. I've been in the US manufacturing business for over 25 years and I have never seen a display of inferiority and unprofessionalism as I have seen with Laveo, as a US manufacture, I'm embarrassed for them.

There is an issue with the liquid not being "flushed " , thoroughly but I found if you put enough toilet paper to absorb the urine , it will flush with out any problem. The charge for 1-2 hrs holds up good. We unplugged ours after charging for 1 hour , it' held it's charge for 3 days. I think it would be more than 3 days but we left our cabin after 3 days. The item came fully assembled, with an extra cartridge. All you have to do is charge it and you're ready to "go"! The instructions manual is very clear...I have not seen a manual clearly written in a long time! If you have a remote cabin like we do, this is the best thing to have. Beats going to the privy in the middle of the nite, in below 20 degree weather!

I'm very happy with how well this controls odors, how easy it is to change the refills, how sturdy and well put together it is and how dependably the rechargeable 12v battery holds a charge (for many months in cold weather). I wonder if the people who wrote negative reviews have ever dumped a porta potty or pumped out a holding tank or lived with the trouble they can cause in a boat or an RV. Comparatively, this is a sweet summer breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative when you can't have a regular toilet We put this toilet in the guest room we built above our garage. There was no hope of being able to run a line to our septic system without breaking the bank. After reading the mixed reviews on this, we took a chance and it has worked extremely well. We just put in our 3rd cartridge and it has been a learning experience. Other people have mentioned that urine will leak up when you "flush"... this is true. I read a couple reviews who said to just put a lot of toilet paper in and it will absorb the urine. That sorta worked, but we still found that urine would still leak up - just not as much. So, while changing my cat litter box, I had an idea... how about absorbing cat litter? I didn't want to use clay or crystals for fear that they might rip the foil bags. So we bought the wood pellet cat litter and it worked great! So we now keep a container with the litter in it next to the toilet with a scoop and it's no problem to just put a scoop of liter on the urine before "flushing". I have found it's best to only enough pellets in to absorb the urine, no more, because it will take up room in the toilet. We have also found that this is the solution to being able to use it to urinate more than once per "flush".

Although, small puddles of urine began to appear after several flushes. I believe the sealing after each flush wasn’t tight enough to liquid from seeping through.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy a bucket and some garbage bags I purchased this product and would like to share my experience......here are the problems and claims made by Laveo I recently purchased a Dry-Flush toilet through Home Depot, we were excited about all the info and it looked like a great fit for our van. However we have begun using it and have been rather un satisfied with the results. My complaints: - When liquids are "flushed" sometimes they are not completely removed thus a second flush is needed, this is costly. -Once the liquids are removed they seep back up into the bowl, they also combine with solids and make "sewage" this smell is not pleasant. -I have been using your refills with the provided black plastic bags and noticed that the silver mylar liners had leaked out into the bag, most recently both bags leaked. This left me with a drum full of waste. This is exactly the reason I got this product, to avoid having to handle and dispose of waste directly. I have contacted the source and the manufacturer. The manufacturer is unwilling to do anything other than have me send this unit in to be "evaluated" they offered no clear solution other than they will look at it. At this point I am out $700 for an un useable toilet that I feel is a flawed design, do not be fooled by the claims that this product is "odor free" or that you will not come into contact with sewage. Both of these unpleasant things are in your future if you purchase this product. Anyone with questions I would be happy to help.

It works well with one exception. If you try to flush liquid only, or a small or lightweight flush,..occasionally the process will lift the mylar bowl bottom too high. This results in non-positive control of the contents. Not to the point of spillage, but I did not like the suspense at all ! The company told me to just add more water to provide the weight to prevent the raising up of the mylar and contents. I did and it works, its not perfect, but its acceptable. Every flush is different depending on the previous volume and configuration of the mylar. The bottom is smooth and flat for the first use of the refill only. For liquids only, bentonite or kitty litter does help. These remedies are slightly counter productive in reference to cost of refills, but we are paying for convenience and this unit returns civilization to the activity. After returning home, there were contents that have been in the unit for 8 months with the very slightest of odor, if any. The red line indicating your near the end of the refill needs to be more consistent and pronounced . There are 15 flushes per refill or more. The battery charge lasts a long time. I recommend multiple liquid uses before flushing for best results. If this product wouldn't have worked well , I would have sold my camping truck.

The only issue is the button has no guard over it, so it is easy to accidentally activate it. I solved the problem by taping a bottle cap over it.
