5 Gallon Bucket Toilet

It is really easy to forget about the basics. Many would-be survivors focus on weapons and security, but forget about the simple things like this 5 Gallon Bucket Toilet. I keep one in my vehicle, and fill the bucket with a box of trash bags, Wet Wipes, and paper towels. Nobody really notices a bucket in a vehicle but this 5 Gallon Toilet has saved me more than once.

I’ve been up in the mountains on a logging roads when a few cups of coffee kick in and driving back to the closest bathroom just isn’t realistic. Sure, I could just squat in the woods, but the reality is that I’m getting older, and this is just much easier to use – for me, and usually for kids as well. Yes, get this 5 Gallon Toilet for the elderly and the young – and trust me when I say you’ll thank me when you need to use it.

Put a trash bag into the 5 Gallon Toilet, do your business, tie it up and be about the rest of your non business business.

5 Gallon Bucket Toilet Scoring

How do this 5 Gallon Bucket Toilet stack up against the Portable Toilet? The major difference is size and comfort. The Portable Toilet is larger, but more comfortable. It is also less self contained though. It is perfect for a camp, but not quite as easily used in tight spaces. Because of that, this 5 Gallon Bucket Toilet scores just a bit higher, but each has their place. I’d prefer the Portable Toilet for a camp, and this 5 Gallon Bucket Toilet for my vehicle and other space constrained locations.

This Bucket Toilet can have a low impact on your survival and scores a 55/1000.
