PROS

  • The perfect toilet for outdoor events and occasions (think concerts and outdoor festivals where getting to a toilet can be difficult or messy)
  • Ultra convenient in terms of its size and ability to locate in more discreet places.
  • Very simple to clean, just take the bag of waste out.
  • Budget price so if you aren't sure about spending more on a portable toilet this is a great test product.

CONS

  • Will not suit people who aren't comfortable with the waste disposal side of using a bag only.
  • The bucket is lower to the ground than the more formal portable toilets.

VERDICT

The Reliance Hassock bucket toilet is a champion!  It's especially great for those who don't a more domestic looking toilet or who don't have the space to store the larger units.  If you've never bought a portable camping toilet before, the Reliance is a great place to start.  Whilst we have heard of some people using normal shopping bags and then adding cat litter to the bottom, this seems like an added inconvenience to something that is super easy to use.  Buying the Double Doodie bags means you don't need to do any of this.

It's also fantastic for those people who may be outdoors often but not necessarily camping.  This could apply to outdoor workers, travellers, and doing road trips with children.

A great budget choice.

Reliance Hassock Portable Toilet review

Top 5 features

  • Bucket toilet.
  • Simple to use and carry.
  • The most portable of them all making it extremely easy to carry, transport and store.
  • Soft, rounded seat.
  • The inner waste bucket can be easily removed.

Other helpful features

  • Small and compact, will fit into tight spaces, especially tents.
  • It doesn’t really look like a toilet so discretion can be more easily achieved.
  • Cleaning is very easy as all of the waste just goes straight into bags.
  • Despite being small it is still incredibly sturdy and holds large and heavier adults.
  • There is no smell.  Seriously!
  • There is a lid on the top of the bucket so it’s not open.
  • Has a toilet roll holder attached.

For those who love the detail

Dimensions as per manufacturer’s specifications:  14.7length/depth  x 14.7″ width x 14.0″ height

  • The biggest feature of all is that it weighs under five pounds so it is very easy to carry.
  • This toilet is small, low to the ground and extremely compact.  With the lid off, the height is 13.7″.  Despite this, it is still a very robust toilet, built to seat comfortably even very large adults.
  • No-one will ever think that a portable toilet seat is as comfortable as the one you have at home, but this seat holds its own.  Considering it is quite simply a bucket, the soft, rounded toilet seat makes using this style of toilet as comfortable as possible.
  • The product comes with a five-year warranty which is also on the high end of the scale.

Tips

  • Being a bucket, this portable toilet is very simple to keep clean.  We recommend using the Reliance Double Doodie bags that are specially made for this toilet.  These bags offer a double bag for added protection, a zip-lock seal and a gel that solidifies liquid waste (the kind that tends to smell more than solid waste).  For a few dollars more, this gives you the right bag, with the right treatment of waste and without having the issue of leaking or punctured bags and having to buy and use cat litter.
  • Keep the lid of the toilet on when not in use.
  • Keep some wet wipes close by to encourage others to clean the toilet after use if necessary.
  • If you are only using the toilet for short periods of time, give it a good overall clean when you get home.  If it is a more permanent arrangement, giving a full clean regularly will make it nicer to use and easier to keep clean for longer.
  • It’s a good idea when handling portable toilet waste tanks to have some disposable gloves with you.
