frequently asked questions
What is your shipping policy?
Where does the waste go?
Waste is automatically encapsulated during a “flush” and hidden in a lined container under the seat. When the cartridge is expended, lift up the toilet seat and the trim piece just under it. Lift out the liner bag containing wrapped waste. You will never see or smell waste at any time.
Where can I buy a Laveo™ by Dry Flush portable toilet?
We are just now establishing a dealer network. Check the list of dealers under Contact Us or call Laveo™ by Dry Flush directly at (203) 248-4440.
What about freezing?
No water means that the unit is immune to freezing temperatures. The battery is good down to at least -20°F (-30°C) depending upon charge condition. Waste will freeze, but that causes no issues.
When should I change the cartridge?
When you see the red line, stop flushing and change the cartridge.
Can I install the Laveo™ in the shower?
The Laveo is IPX4 water blast certified. So yes, you can. You may get a little water in the bowl but that’s ok. We also offer a Cordova-tailored foam padded cover for the toilet in the shower to make it a seat.
How much weight can the unit hold?
It has been tested to 500 lbs without appreciable deformation.
Yikes! Someone used the toilet before I had a chance to put in a cartridge – now what?
This is always a possibility, but don’t worry. No damage has been done. The rigid container has collected the waste, and it must be emptied and cleaned.
Is it legal to dump human waste in landfills?
Yes! All landfills accept human waste to accommodate baby and adult diapers. Standard regulations require that waste be contained in plastic bags.
What about availability of refills?
From your toilet source or from Dry-flush.com. You can even call us directly at (203) 248-4440. We do ship directly from our manufacturing facility as well.
Why is there no odor?
The best thing about Laveo™ by Dry Flush! Over two years in development, Laveo™ by Dry Flush’s proprietary barrier material completely isolates waste and odor. Once the toilet is flushed you will never see it again. Furthermore, when the unit is emptied, it’s really empty. There is nothing to create a cumulative or lingering “dirty toilet” odor. All surfaces that come in contact with waste are discarded in the double-layered barrier bag.
How long does the battery last?
The battery will last for several months, depending upon weather and for at least 300 flushes before charging is needed.
How do I clean the Laveo™ by Dry Flush?
Just wipe the exterior with a damp cloth. There is no holding tank to clean. All surfaces that contact waste are discarded when you change refills.
Is the material biodegradable?
