Whether we’re packing up our bags to go on the holidays or blasting off into space to live onboard the international area, all of us share one thing in common, and that is when you need a toilet, you need it any-how! Going to the bathroom on various forms of transport is always a tricky spot to turn the routes from simple to problematic ones.
Specifically, when it comes to coach toilets, you can’t take a step back because a nature call is here, and you need to use them at any cost. However, not all are smelly and uncomfortable; some are clean and give you a homey feel.
If you’ve ever been on a long bus or coach trip, then you might notice that many of them have toilets. Have you eternally questioned how a bus, car, and coach toilet works with seating that is too close to the loo? Well, all you have to is to wait for a bus to stop to use those cramped little spaces that barely give you enough room to move your legs.
Two types of toilets are designed in buses or coaches to use by travelers. However, the first is a toilet with a flap, where you can flush your waste correctly and have proper seating, but the other one is without a flap. It means that you don’t need to wash away your trash, and it straight drops into the holding tank that later gets emptied after every trip to ensure odors don’t get nasty.
It has a simple setup, but the buses with a flap system are pretty expensive, and not all of us can bear it. Flap toilets have a flush within them and clean seating so that it won’t smell worst to use the toilets.
No flap toilets are quite simple if you notice; it has no flash and no seating at all, but a holding tank. When the tank gets full, it’s discharged out once a bus stops at its station. A sewer pipe is attached to the fitting outside a bus while another side is connected with a tank; it helps to empty the waste.
