How Do Portable Toilets Work?


Maybe not your usual question but you might be asking yourself how do portable toilets work?  We decided to provide you a quick breakdown.

Portable toilets are made of 4 core components:

  • Toilet seat

  • Holding Tank

  • Flushing mechanism

  • Pressure system

A portable toilet flushes and carries waste away like a conventional toilet but the waste is not transported to a sewer, instead is carried to a holding tank underneath. The tank is located inside the portable toilet unit beneath the toilet seat. Inside the holding tank are chemicals that break down solid waste, kills germs, destroys smells and reduces toilet paper.

Portable toilet flushes either by using water that comes from a hidden water tank inside the toilet or it flushes using the toilet chemicals from the holding tank. This tank will hold all waste and liquids therefore no mains draining or water supply is needed for standard portable toilet units.

The flusher operates by using the hand or foot. The pump flush system creates pressure which circulates the water and/or chemicals contained within the tank through a pipe to be transported to the toilet pan.

Toilets are regularly serviced as to replenish toilet paper, water and cleaning and to retain hygiene standards. See our guide on how to clean a portable toilet
