I didn't want to hijack the other groover thread so…
Has anyone used a Vittles Vault as a groover? I was looking at these and they seem like they should work pretty well. Hell someone has already devised a harness
Comparing it to a Eco-Safe
; it is lighter, cheaper and has a higher capacity. The Eco-Safe costs ~$200 and only has 5.5 gallons or 50 uses. While the 50 and 30 Vittles Vault are $34/$24 (plus seat and extra lid) and have 13/8 gallons or 118/72 uses.
My idea is to get a Vittles Vault 50
and an extra lid. I'd take the extra lid cut a hole in it and glue a toilet seat on top. Then you could just screw on the seat at camp. It seems to meet BLM, NPS, and USFS requirements for washable and reusable toilet systems.
The 50 container is 20"H x 14"D x 14"W. This would be a little tall for a toilet. (Standard is 14" tall.)
While the 30 is 13"H x 14"D x 14"W. About right for a toilet.
The biggest concern would be the flip test. But I have read
they do well. I am also a little concerned about cleaning it out but it can't be worse than a plain ammo can.
