PROS

  • Sturdy with good height
  • Price for a 5.3-gallon unit is only slightly more than 2.6 gallon
  • The toilet seat is solid with a large opening.
  • Interchangeability by purchasing a smaller 2.6-gallon unit increases usability.

CONS

  • A very heavy unit
  • No rotating waste spout
  • No waste level indicators

VERDICT

If you are wanting a base-grade, limited function toilet the Eachpole 5.3-gallon portable toilet is perfect.  The price makes it one of the cheaper options around.  Buying a second 2.6-gallon unit gives more freedom for different situations, where you can swap out the heavier waste tank for a much lighter one.

Eachpole 5.3 gallon Portable Toilet Review

Top 5 features

  • A very strong unit that can have the waste tank interchanged with a 2.6 gallon as an additional unit.
  • Excellent capacity in waste tank of 5.3 gallons
  • Large and comfortable seat.
  • Good for adults at 17″ high.

Other helpful features

  • Easy to keep clean.
  • The waste tank is separated from the bowl by a sliding valve, preventing splashback and spills.  
  • Molded handles on both tanks make picking up the separated units very easy.

For those who love the detail

Dimensions as per manufacturer’s specifications:  16″ length/depth  x 14″ width x  17″ height

Tank capacity: Waste tank is 5.3 gallons 

  • This is a basic toilet unit at a very budget price.
  • Excellent height at 17″ high – good suitability for adults or taller people.
  • Manual, bellows style flush.
  • Full-size toilet seat with 10″ opening which is wider than many others in the same price/function range.
  • A reasonably heavy unit on its own.  Is quite heavy when the 5.3 gallon waste tank is full.
  • The portable toilet is a pale green colour, supposedly to hide stains and marks.  All modern portable toilets have good flushing systems and using the correct cleaners will also help to keep the unit clean.  Colour is more of a personal preference.
  • Compact and easy to clean.
  • A pull out lever operates the sliding valve that covers the hole at the bottom of the bowl.  When the toilet is not in use, and when being emptied, the valve should be closed. Before using the toilet, the valve is opened.
  • Both the top and bottom parts of the toilet may be separated.  The upper unit contains the freshwater whilst the bottom holds the waste.
  • The upper and lower units can be simply separated by the sturdy side latches, meaning it is easy to transport either tank to dumping or refilling areas.
  • Ability to purchase the Eachpole 2.6 gallon unit to interchange the waste tanks, depending on your event or situation.

Tips

  • Help to keep the toilet clean by putting some water or a small bit of toilet paper in the bottom before using it for solid waste.
  • Keep the lid of the toilet closed until you have moved the lever to open the access to the waste tank before use.
  • Keep some wet wipes close by to encourage others to clean the toilet after use if necessary.  Don’t flush these down the toilet.
  • Using the appropriate cleaning chemicals not only helps to keep the camping toilet clean but also assists with keeping the parts lubricated correctly.
  • It’s a good idea when handling portable toilet waste tanks to have some disposable gloves with you.

Cleaning and care

Cleaning the water tank will require a hose be placed into the opening to get a good clean.  As the waste tank does not have an additional rotating spout, you will need to take care not to splash yourself when cleaning.

As the warranty does not cover damage you might do to the portable toilet, it is recommended to use recommended portable toilet cleaning products.  Never use rough cleaners, pastes, scourers or acids on any of the toilet or toilet parts, especially the valves and seals.  Using the recommended products also helps to keep all parts properly maintained.
