What is a Printer Potty

[jwplayer mediaid=”6″]

Almost all Inkjet printers include a nappy (or diaper) that collect the ink wasted during your printers life. The Printer Potty allows you to Potty train your printer, do away with nappies, and deal with its mess with minimal fuss.

At present the Printer Potty kits are designed for Epson Inkjet printers but other printer brands can be adapted as well.

Key Features/Benefits

  • Money Saved
    No new printer and no new consumables (Original/Compatible Cartridges, CIS system, etc..).
  • No Waste
    Nothing been dumped so nothing being wasted.
  • Time Well SpentNo researching a new printer or new consumables. No new drivers to install, or new printer manuals to ignore.

..and there’s more:

  • Install it just once
    Once installed correctly your waste kit never needs to reinstalled. The tank is designed to disconnect and reconnect easily without needing to dismantle or move your printer again.
  • Re-usable
    When your printer finally reaches its true end of life you can transfer your waste kit to your next compatible printer (more info).
  • No Consumables
    Printer Potty tanks are re-usable, not consumables. We are not in the business of creating more landfill.


Our most popular products are the standard range of Printer Potty kits designed for each printer type. Each come with a tube extension part, waste collection tank and instructions for installing and maintaining your kit. Equally important you also receive the necessary software and key(s) to reset the printers waste ink counter.

We are also introducing the Printer Potty Pro kit which has been designed for professionals and amateur enthusiasts with larger format printers such as the Epson R3000.
