Here’s a link to Thetfords cassette toilet page

Lots of interesting pictures ….
Thetford also makes a marine model of portable toilet with a pump-out discharge port that could be used with a macerator to pump out the tank….

Sure you could cut a hole in the lower tank and glue a section of black plastic pipe and a valve on it ….but you’d have to do some research on the best glue to use for this sort of project.
But since you’re dealing with some pretty thin plastic on the holding tank portion of the toilet, every time you sit down on the toilet, you’d be putting stresses on the glue.
Are you questioning my Aaa-thoritttyy ?

I like how that guy is doing the service procedure in his nice dockers and without gloves. So sanitary! We had one of the Porta Potti 735's on Airship Shamu when I was on her crew in the early 90's. It was the dread of any crewman to have watch on the night after a cross country flight becuase the pilots would have invariably filled the thing up in the 8 hours or so they were aloft. It wasn't too horribly messy, but every now and again, you ended up with some fluid on you and have to live with the smell until your watch was over. As was mentioned before, the top half would get soiled and required additional cleaning beyond the draining of the bottom half. As most airports didn't provide a dump tank, we would dig a hole off to the side of our operations area and bury the stuff directly... usualy after dark.

we had one when we (my wife and I) lived in the bus for 10 weeks and it worked fine. Yeah, dumping the thing stinks but I was able to dump in any washroom or roadside outhouse. Just buy enviromentaly freindly chemicals. Don't dump outside. It was cheap, portable and simple. However in the most recent conversion, I putting in tanks and a "proper" rv toilet. So... Use what you've got. You can always put a perminant system in later.
