Sometimes what a composting toilet lacks in design is covered by the quality of the features and benefits it provides. If you want a toilet that both advanced users and beginners can set up and use with ease, take a look at this toilet. Although it doesn’t have the most appealing look, it gets the job done effortlessly, which is precisely what those on the go want. In this composting toilet review, we discuss the pros and cons of the Visa Potty 248.

Product overview

The Sanitation Equipment Visa Potty Model 248 is a composting toilet with a lot of features. Although it doesn’t have a very intriguing design, it ultimately makes up for it with the features it has.

This toilet has excellent functionality and comes equipped with an easy to use replaceable piston pump with a two-directional rinse. This allows for complete bowl surface coverage and removes the need for cleaning the bowl as often as other toilets.

Sanitation Equipment Visa Potty

  • Wide holding tank vent
  • 2-section system
  • Very portable
  • Why we like it: There are many on the list but this is a solid starter for those that need a good composting toilet.

The bowl is extra deep for two reasons. The first reason is being able to sit on the toilet with ease. The second reason is for less splashing when using the toilet, which makes for less of a mess. Once you finish going to the bathroom, the lid snaps shut, which prevents unwanted vibration or sounds while moving. The lid makes it easy to transport in a trailer or RV without any constant noise.

Other features include an easy to read waste level indicator for the tank and a freshwater level indicator, a detachable spout storage compartment, and a wide holding tank vent for the simple discharge of waste.

On top of all these features, you can get this composting toilet in two sizes, 24-liter, and 18-liter. Both of these sizes are incredibly affordable, making for an excellent choice all the way around.

Off-the-grid camping toilet

The Sanitation Equipment Visa Potty 248 toilet works as the perfect off-the-grid camping toilet. It isn’t powered with any fans but instead comes with a sample-sized deodorizer. You can choose to continue with the same deodorizer or get your favorite brand.

This toilet is by no means an “all-in-one” system, meaning there are no external connections to hook up or fans to plug into power sources. It is straightforward, which many campers and those who are on-the-go enjoy.

For those who don’t need complicated all-in-one systems, this is a fantastic setup and comes with every necessary feature. With a simple 2-section system combining a freshwater tank and holding tank, this is a camper’s dream toilet.

How easy is it to use?

This camping toilet couldn’t be easier to use. For advanced users and complete newbies to the portable toilet world, this is out-of-the-box simple.


The setup of this toilet couldn’t be more straightforward. Out of the box, you fill the fresh water tank with water. You then can optionally add holding tank chemicals into the holding tank and use the provided deodorizer to mask the smell of the holding tank. From there, open the lid, and you’re ready to use the toilet.


To use the toilet, open the lid, and do your business. After that, it’s a simple pull of the flushing lever as you would on any standard toilet. You can use this quite a bit before emptying as it has a large-sized holding tank.


To empty, unclip and remove the holding tank from the rest of the unit. Use the holding tank vent to efficiently discharge the waste at a certified dump station or area.


Cleaning is effortless. Once you’ve discharged of your waste, the holding tank chemicals or cleaners will have done most of the job by removing most of the waste. For any small bits of debris that remain, use a hose to clean the holding tank. Fill it back up with the cleaner, and it’s ready for more use.


● Ease of use - This portable toilet is straightforward to use out of the box.
Easy to clean - The holding tank vent allows for a quick discharge of waste, and the toilet design makes it easy to hose off the rest of the holding tank.
Easy to set up - Use the cleaner and deodorizer for the holding tank, and fill the fresh water tank with water, and you’re ready to go.
● Very portable - You can take this toilet anywhere, and this works exceptionally well for camping.


● Some people would rather pay additional money to have extra features, but this has all the features you need for what it was built for - on-the-go use.


The Visa Potty 248 is extremely easy to use, and that is its main benefit and selling point. Advanced users and beginners alike can easily use this in no time at all. With a simple setup, use, discharge, and cleaning, it really can’t get any easier. If you want a simple composting toilet that has all the features you want and need, the Sanitation Equipment Visa Potty 248 is an excellent choice.
