Popular Questions

Can I buy a Loowatt toilet?
Not yet except for customers in Madagascar. If you live in Antananarivo, Madagascar, please send us an email or fill out this contact form with your full name, phone number and address. Thank you.

How much does a Loowatt toilet cost?
Pricing information is currently unavailable, except for household toilet applicants from Antananarivo, Madagascar. If you are looking for luxury toilets for your festival or outdoor event, please tell us about your event.

For UK festival and events customers, Loowatt toilet wristbands and Pay-As-You-Go pricing can be found on each event’s web page.

How does it work when I use the toilet?
You simply activate the “flush”, which is done much like a standard toilet, with a button or lever. There is a biodegradable plastic liner inside the toilet bowl, instead of water. The Loowatt then seals waste. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask any Loowatt staff.

How does the toilet work without water?
The Loowatt toilet uses a unique mechanical sealing unit to contain human waste within biodegradable film, so that the use of water is not necessary. The waste is then stored in a cartridge beneath the toilet, for periodic emptying, which can be weekly or daily, depending upon the levels of usage and capacity. To see the toilet in action, check out the videos on our home page.

Does it smell?
No. Our patented technology eliminates odour, providing an excellent experience that surpasses the expectations of customers accustomed to flush toilets.

Are you hiring?
Yes! We are seeking enthusiastic individuals to join us summer of 2017 for a variety of short-term positions. Please register your interest here.

When do I receive my wristband?
Once you have completed your online purchase you will receive an email containing your eticket. Print this off or bring it with you on your device to the event where we will scan and exchange it for your wristband. Read a detailed description for Port Eliot Festival 2015 here.

Do you limit the number of wristbands you sell?
Yes. There are national guidelines for the ratio of toilets to people for outdoor events and we work well within these to offer you the best luxury experience.

Can I share my wristband?
No. We’re sorry but wristbands are not interchangeable and are secured to your wrist. If wristbands are removed or tampered with they become void and we reserve the right to refuse admission.

Why didn’t I receive my confirmation e-ticket?
