Autarkia's Pooper - Epilogue

Autarkia's Brand New Natures Head Composting Toilet

If it were me alone living aboard Autarkia, I would have managed quite well with the homemade, experimental design composting toilet that has been detailed in previous posts.  Alas, I was not able to get the ergonomics right for the fairer sex (can I still say that?).

After spending quite a few nights aboard recently it became clear that a remedy was in order for the human waste issue.  I did not hesitate.  I have been reading reviews of this toilet for years, as well as watching some video reviews - some of them quite humorous - on YouTube.  You can find them yourself quite easily.  Suffice to say, no one has anything bad to say about these toilets.  They are happily being used in RVs, boats and tiny homes.

I ordered one one last Monday morning from our local BC distributor and got it by courier the next day.  It took me about ten minutes to install.  Of course we tested it shortly thereafter.

Autarkia has always been a happy place.  She is now a much happier place.


  1. You know the depth of our boat nerd-dom when we get excited about toilets, aye? Really a thing of beauty though!

  2. Well done Alan! Keeping the girls happy is always a plus. Looks like you did a great job on the install as well.
