Thanks for this Instructable!We needed a portable commode for working in a rural area, so I scanned the Instructables and found this one. Tweaked the design a little to our needs and thought I'd pass along the changes for anyone else that likes it. The tweaks were: 1) use an extra screw on the front to mount the seat, 2) swap one of the elbow joints for a 'T' joint under the front seat to add a removable toliet paper roll holder, and 3) adjust some cut lengths to still only use one 10 foot PVC.Attached photo shows how it looks assembled & unassembled. Figure 1 shows without the toliet paper holder attached, Figure 2 with toliet paper holder attached, and figure 3 shows the basic profile when transported. It can still fit in a 5" x 15" x 17" soft bag or a 5" x 16" x 17" hard-sided enclosure.Parts list:(1) 10 foot schedule 40 PVC(7) 1" elbow joints(5) 1" 'T' joints(1) 1" end cap(4) 1/4" x 2 1/2" screws (4) 1/4" flat washers(4) 1/4" lock nuts(1) toliet seat (see tip below)PVC primer & cementCut 10 foot PVC as follows:(6) 11 1/2" (8) 5 1/2"Remaining 7" will be used for the removable toliet paper holderCement same pieces as in original Instructable. For the toliet paper roll holder, cement the end cap to the 7" piece of PVC -- do not cement the toliet paper holder to the 'T' joint under the toliet seat.Tips: 1) The toliet seat will determine how heavy a person can be that can safely use the commode. I used a hard/solid plastic toliet seat and it was adequate for people up to at least 250 lbs. We didn't have anyone heavier to test it with at the time, so it might actually accomodate someone heavier than 250 lbs.2) The commode assembles easily, but may be difficult to take apart. As it gets used over and over the uncemented connections may tighten considerably.
I decided to test a theory I had, so i took an old propane torch with a long hose leading to the hot end and cut it off and used a male to male barbed fitting to attach the hose to a hole i put in the thermacell butane canister, and epoxied it to seal it all up and i spun it in and hooked it up and it worked very well not to mention little camping propane canisters are much cheaper and last SOOO much longer. It had no issues running for 6-7 hours today. So if youre like me, and use these on a patio or while camping this little trick with save you time and a good bit of money, even on butane refill bottles.
