We offer three pre-fab buildings: the Poobah (made in USA), the Wishbone (made in Canada) and the Pan Abode (made in USA cedar). Custom or site-built options exist, but these tend to be more expensive to build and maintain than our pre-fab and warrantied products.
The Poobah (and Grand Poobah)
The Poobah is Toilet Tech's strongest prefab metal frame building. We designed it to withstand the heavy-duty rubbing of buffalo at Antelope Island State Park, Utah. This building package is suitable for both toilet types (Decompose and Waste Away) and comes in two sizes (regular and ADA). We offer single stalls or joined blocks (wall-sharing) connecting up to 5 stalls. We offer a classic gable roof architecture or a shed roof. This building can withstand a high snow load.
Heavy-duty; prefab; 4-season use, high snow load
Not as light or easy to assemble as Wishbone John
Winter use sites, high snow load, trail heads, back-country
The Wishbone John (standard and ADA)
We are all about reusing waste as much as we are about minimizing it. Our Wishbone prefab building frames are made from extruded aluminum and use recycled plastic or cedar wall boards. These buildings are available for both toilet types (Decompose, and Waste Away) and come in two sizes (regular and ADA). We offer single stalls or joined blocks (wall-sharing) connecting up to 5 stalls. We offer a classic gable roof architecture or a shed roof. This building can withstand a low snow load.
Long-lasting (40+ years), prefab, lightweight; erects in a few hours with basic hand tools; will not rot, corrode, fade; multiple color options
Not made of concrete (but we think concrete toilets are pretty ugly), Not suitable for high snow load
City parks, parking lots, trail heads, back-country
Wall boards: 50 years; frame: 5 years
The Wilderness series offers two low-profile, backcountry toilet building options: partial walls (for some privacy) or no walls. These structures can accommodate either a Decompose or Waste Away system.
Wilderness Act compliant; prefab; lightweight, long-lasting materials; durable
Materials: 5 years.

Sometimes a site warrants a custom design or retrofit. Many of our early installations were custom designs that housed the BTW urine-diverting toilet. Chris McCrumb built many of these toilets in the remote B.C. back country that he loved and served for many years.
