My C-Head arrived today in a big Home Depot box. I had been following the tracking with much anticipation. I tore into it like a kid on Christmas morning. :-)
The ventilation hood adapter for the storage bucket.
Even came with instructions on how to get it out of the box.
It was packaged quite well.
I had this old shelf from a computer desk in the basement and hacked it up to make a base. Unfortunately the toilet flange sticks up from the floor & can't easily be removed as it is attached to the tank. Plus the nut on the plug sticks up a bit too. This was quite the project, involving a circular saw and a roto-zip which I finally found in a box tonight after looking for it for ages. I have drifts of chipboard dust in the basement now..
The toilet slid into place. It was a tight fit.
With the cover in place
Cover removed, ready to use. Did I mention it was a close fit? Um, yeah. I can't open the cabinet. F&*%! :-)
Top lifted to access the collection containers. Apparently this is the only way I will be able to access the bathroom cabinet. :-( Ah well. I do need to see if I can disassemble the box behind the toilet or make the hole in it where the water pipe comes out bigger so I can push the water line back inside. Even that inch will help. I could also, after the 30 day return policy is up, possibly sand down that edge that sticks out from under the seat. Or I could just live with lifting the top. I don't keep stuff I access frequently in that cabinet anyway as it was hard to access before, and the water pump & a ton of piping takes up most of it. We'll see how it goes.
Liquid & solids collection containers.
I haven't used it yet. I need to get the coco coir, or if I can't find that I suspect Feline Pine cat litter might work great too. It's basically compressed pine sawdust, and any moisture turns it back into sawdust. And it has a pleasant smell. My first impression of the toilet is positive though, it's well built and the design makes sense. I like the look of it better than the Nature's Head too. It looks more like a regular toilet while the NH looks like something from the space shuttle. :-) I'll update when it's seen some use.
