For some reason, a disproportionate amount of thought went into the porta-potty for the studio. I want something that is clean, looks nice, and works well. I went with a urine diverter bucket toilet. Urine will be collected in jugs, and manure in a rectangular bucket. It is smaller, so poop won’t be sitting around for as long as a 5 gallon pail would take to fill. Also, for whatever reason, 7 and 8 gallon biodegradable bags (to fit 5 gal pails) were very costly and only available in large quantities. 5 gallon bags for this 3 gallon waste can were available and affordable.
The apparatus is held in a box that is large enough to hold an extra urine jug, and the stash of garbage bags. The jon is on wheels and can stow under a cupboard out of the way. The seat isn’t a toilet seat, it’s a finished board with hole and a flat lid. I just don’t want it to look like a toilet since I’ll be sharing a room with it.
