Recently while perusing the Tampa Boat Show, I saw a new product “Flex-Toilet” that would be an excellent tool for boaters and campers alike to consider. This product is easy to use, environmentally “green”, compliant with current laws, inexpensive and adaptable for use with many kinds of waste receptacles.

This product is simply a bag that is used as a liner for your boat or camper “head”. When used, the bag will absorb the liquid waste and its odors into a solid gel. The solid content can then be easily disposed of as an odorless, leak free, compact discrete package along with regular household waste. Flex-Toilet is available in a convenient 5 pack and Handy emergency packages with 2 Flex-Toilets, great for being stored in a small space in a; car, truck, private airplane, or in a backpack...

Press release:

Flex-Toilet, an alternative to a marine head, made its United States debut at the Tampa boat show. The product fits over a commode seat or a bucket – or any kind of seat opening – to provide a dry toilet that can be used in circumstances when a conventional toilet is not available.

It can be used on toilet bowls in RVs, campers, boats, as well as on portable and chemical toilets, without the need for special tools. “Our slogan is that you can use the Flex-Toilet anytime and anyplace that there’s not a toilet available, accessible or in working condition,” said Jan Kuiper with JLK International Marketing LLC, which is based in Gainesville, Georgia and has formed a corporation with the Flex-Toilet’s inventor in the Netherlands. JLK International is the sole distributor in the United States and Canada.

“It’s ideal for boats without heads or for people who are camping.”Kuiper admits that the subject is a bit difficult to talk about. “No one wants to talk about it, but everyone wants to have one,” he said. Made of non-woven material and high-density polyethylene, the conical-shaped Flex-Toilet bag absorbs liquid. Special folding instructions are printed on each
