Houseboat Toilets - Happy Bowl keeps your head clean

Here's a tip on how to keep your toilet bowl in your houseboat clean and ready for the next use. I first saw these in an RV magazine, but thought they would be great for our houseboat toilet.

These are biodegradable toilet bowl liners which are made of paper. You put them in the bowl, make your "deposit", add a little water and flush your "deposit" away leaving a clean toilet bowl.

They are safe for your holding tank. We use the larger porcelain toilet version on our houseboat and the smaller version in our RV. They come in a pack of 50 and are not expensive.

I am so happy we found these. They can be ordered directly from A great idea!

Well Natalie, I can agree that this appears to be a simple way to keep your houseboat head sparkling clean. Now I just have to figure out how to get my guests to use them, as you know, non-boaters seem to have a hard time just flushing the head on a boat.

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about their houseboat toilet experiences.

Houseboat Washrooms - clean heads.
by: Ray

IAN, I'm with you on this. While keeping the head cleaned and sparkling is nice, if one has guests, (and you will), and they will mostly be non-boaters, no way can you train them in one easy voyage.

This not only goes for keeping the head clean and even flushing it right, but just about everything else special about boats. Something as simple as shoes can be a problem in more ways than one.

As skipper of your boat, YOU are the only one who knows how to keep your guests safe, happy and make their visit enjoyable.

I would suggest making a list of those most likely to be invited as a group, and then inviting them to come, one or two at a time, at various times well in advance of any planned trips and just explain how some things MUST be done or not done, and very importantly,

WHY, much easier to train a few at a time than the whole crowd at once. Once you are under way with a group, it's too late to watch them all. You have to focus on running the ship.

I feel this would make any trip more enjoyable for all and not give the Captain a bad case of anxiety worrying about what the passengers are doing. Your guests will appreciate it too and your boat won't get abused by the unknowing.

Gravity discharge toilets on houseboats?
by: Carol

My sister & brother-in-law use a gravity discharge toilet in their trailer. Can anyone tell me if these can be used on houseboats. They seem simple enough and there's no macerator to get jammed up.
