Nature's Head Composting Marine Head -- Features and Facts

Nature's Head Composting Toilet

  • Meets all “No Discharge” regulations and is a U.S Coast Guard Approved type III marine head.

  • No Odors. Separation of liquids and solids means there is no bad smell. Sewage smells are caused when urine is mixed with solids. When working properly the toilet will have a slight earthy smell when open. Unlike any other type of head, the longer you let a composting toilet sit, the better it will smell when time to empty.

  • High Capacity. A couple using their boat on the weekends may go an entire summer without having to empty the solid’s tank. The front liquid tank is approximately 2.2 gallons and will need to be emptied more frequently. Additional liquid tanks with caps are available for situations where more capacity is required.

  • No Water Required. A thru-hull intake for water is not required, nor is any of your on-board water supply used for flushing. Nature’s Head is a “dry toilet.” Yes, you can use it when on the hard.

  • No More Pump-Outs. No longer will you have do deal with the inconveniences of finding a pump-out, idle in line waiting for a pump out, or paying for a pump-out.

  • Less Weight to Carry. One gallon of water weighs approximately 8.3 pounds. If, for instance, a small holding tank holds about 15 gallons, this adds 124 pounds of weight, much of which is water that was used to flush.

  • No Holding Tanks Required. Nature’s Head is completely self- contained. Remove that holding tank and say goodbye to the smelly waste under your berth.

  • Guests Aboard? Guests who are uncomfortable with operating a head (“turn this valve, pump ‘n’ times, don’t put TP in the bowl, close the valve”) will find this unit simple to use. No longer will your guests feel intimidated.

  • No more plugged up heads … there is nothing to get plugged up!

  • No Porta-Potties to Empty. Many marinas now prohibit emptying porta-potties at their facilities. No more smelly portable-potties at the end of your long weekend. The longer a composting toilet sits the more time it has to do its work.

  • Economical to operate, There are NO chemicals to provision. Two gallons of peat moss is all it takes. Alternative sources of composting enhancers are sawdust, coconut coir, or dried leaves.

  • Easy Installation. Designed specifically for marine installation, the unit attaches to the floor with two small l brackets. There is one ventilation hose to run outside and one 12volt power hook-up for a small computer type fan. Or run completely powerless by running the vent hose to a solar vent.

  • Easy Empty. Simply flip the two latches on the sides and lift the upper section up a few inches. Put the lid on the liquid bottle and lift it out of its holder. To empty the main tank un-hook the 12 volt power connector and the vent hose and then slide the upper section off its open ended hinge. Undo the 2 thumb screws on the base and it’s ready to empty. Because there are no liquids in the main tank, even full it is never heavy. The unit is sized so that a kitchen garbage bag will go over the end of the main tank. Simply flip it over and you’re done. There is no need to clean the tank when you empty it, any left-over matter will help start the composting process all over again.
