Choosing the GottaGo toilet for your Adventures: Bag, Compost, or Chemical?

  • Last Updated:
This article is here to help show the differences between bag, compost and chemical options to help you decide which is the best option for your outdoor escapades.
At checkout, you'll get to pick a solids cassette/container; the Compost/Bag or the Chemical cassette/container. 
Both methods separate liquids and solids; making it easy to dispose of waste, extending the time between disposals, and reducing odour!

Bagging or Composting Cassette/Container
If ease is at the top of your list, consider the Bagging option. Line the cassette with a biodegradable bag, and you're set!
This method simplifies the disposal of solids and also uses an innovative sealing system to spare you from ever seeing waste!
For composting, add a scoop of sawdust, coco-coir, peat moss, or your preferred substrate (make sure your composting medium is carbon-based, dry, and not clay-based) and do your business.
Airtight 9.4L (2.5 gal) solids tank lasts <14 days/per person.
Airtight 4.6L (1.2 gal) urine tank: 4-6 days/per person.
Chemical Toilet: Convenient and Odor-Neutralizing
If you're prioritizing convenience and extended use without frequent disposal and have access to dump points, the Chemical cassette/container might be the right pick. Chemical treatments mix with waste to break it down and neutralize odours, making this option ideal for areas where proper disposal facilities are accessible.
Airtight 11L (2.9 gal)  solids tank lasts <21 days/per person. 
Airtight 4.6L (1.2 gal) urine tank: 4-6 days/per person.
Making Your Choice
Deciding between Bagging/Composting and Chemical options boils down to personal preference, environmental considerations, and your adventure's logistics.
We (Joolca) sell both cassettes/containers separately, so if you do want to have both or extra containers/cassettes you can grab them later!
