Waterless Toilets Inc, owners of the Laveo toilet, appoints Dry Flush Australia Pty Ltd

Updated: Jun 22, 2023

Doug Rice, President of Connecticut-based Waterless Toilets Inc, makers of the well-known Laveo Dry Flush toilet, have today confirmed that they have formally appointed Dry Flush Australia Pty Ltd as their exclusive distributor for their products throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Doug states:

“Over the years we’ve had many inquiries about our toilets from Australia and New Zealand, as well as a few about distributing the product range, so we are delighted to have now secured this arrangement with Adam Hudson and his team from Burleigh Heads in Queensland.

Despite the distance, we have already sold quite a few of our toilets into the Australian and NZ markets, but we feel strongly that having a local support team will make a huge difference to our business in that part of the world.”

Well known for their love of camping, caravanning, boating, and all things outdoor, the Australian/NZ markets represent a strong opportunity for the Laveo product, despite being relatively small by headcount.

In a statement earlier today, Adam Hudson, Director of DryFlush Australia said,

“The bottom line is that Australians and Kiwis love going off-grid. Whether it be camping, boating, caravanning, or just throwing an esky and a swag in the back of a ute - we love being outside. Naturally, we also face the same challenges when it comes to toileting!

As part owner of a caravan manufacturing company in Queensland, I know how problematic chemical toilets are, and how there really is no perfect solution when it comes to portable toilets suitable for going off-grid. When I discovered the Laveo, I was sold, so I inquired about securing the rights to this incredible product in this part of the world.

It has been an absolute delight working with Doug and his outstanding team in the US.”

Locally, Adam plans to market these water-free, chemical-free toilets to NDIS participants, the aged care sector, as well as the obvious markets such as caravan toilets, camper van toilets, van conversion companies (a niche popularised by the van-life movement), tiny home and granny flat companies, as well as those who need a toilet solution for boats, temporary housing, or any off-grid toilet situation.
