After purchasing not one but TWO of these porta potties in the larger capacity version, we have had twice the issues. From the very onset, this toilet is difficult not only to flush but to fill. The fill hole needs a funnel, the flush pump assembly is shoddy, with consistent needing of taking out and resetting the sealing rings. The back openings for dumping are huge, which means when you do to dump this toilet, be ware. It comes out fast! The other issues with this shoddy product would be the center rings that are on the seal that connects the toilet to the flushing handle in the front. This seal is gummy and soft which means if you do not line it up EXACTLY when you try to attach the top to the bottom, urine pools up on the second level leaving you with one big mess and ruined carpets if you happen to have this in a camper or lake house as we did. We tried several times to keep this from happening, but the seal never seemed to set right no matter who or how it was put together. The top easily shifts around once attached to promote this seal damage. The flushing handle is very difficult in the front of the toilet. Unless you have used this product or have the instructions handy, you will not know that the lever, which is difficult to move, has to be pulled out and moved to the right to flush at the same time or the handle could be broken off. Another issue with this is that the water flushing pump builds up pressure in the upper tank causing a squealing at times. One needs to open the small valve on the right in order to stop this. I have contacted Coleman about the inferiority of this product. I am not a complainer, nor am I one to pick on issues, but both of these toilets were experiencing the same issues at the same time which leads me to believe it is a defective product. DO NOT BUY THESE. Sincerely.
