£5.00£75.00 inc VAT

Made from Coconut Husk – a byproduct / waste of the coconut processing industry, this compressed coir will expand up to three times its size when rehydrated with water. It makes approximately 8 litres of coir.


Coco coir is a peat substitute and is used as a ‘medium’ in the Air Head toilet.

One coir block is rehydrated several hours before it’s needed and tipped into the base. The stirring action on the Air Head, together with the drying of the fan helps in breaking the solids up and eliminating odours.

See our tips below on rehydrating the coir block – it’s important not to get it too wet.

How to rehydrate a coir block for use in the Air Head compost toilet

Plan in advance – a compressed coir block needs up to several hours to completely and thoroughly rehydrate and expand to its full size. Instructions on the packaging relate to using the coir in horticulture – you don’t want it that wet!

For the best (and fastest) results, place the coir brick in an appropriately sized ziplock plastic bag and seal the bag once the water has been added – you can break the coir up by squeezing the bag

  1. Grab a large bucket, bowl, trug, large ziplock bag or watertight wheelbarrow

  2. Unwrap the coir brick (if wrapped) and place it in your container

  3. Add 1 litre of hot water (not boiling) per block (only add more if necessary).

  4. Leave to stand/soak for several hours.

  5. Break up any chunks in the material and add more water if needed.
  6. If the material is too damp, leave it in the open to dry out.

    I recently switched to WooWoo’s coir bricks after being unhappy with those of a different brand. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. It soaks up the water perfectly and it’s great overall, right down to the packaging.

    Product is fine. There was a bit of a blip with our order, we paid for next day delivery but that didn’t happen, eventually all sorted out, we were refunded for our postage, so really no problems.

Delivery to a non-UK address? No Problem!

Since Brexit, the process of selling to non-UK customers (including those in Ireland!) has changed but we don’t want our customers to pay more so we are offering to refund your customs duties and admin fees.

VAT generally evens itself out
You will find that our price is reduced when selling to non-UK countries. This is because we don’t charge UK VAT (20%) if a customer wants their toilet sent to an address outside the UK.

Instead, the customer will be requested to pay VAT on the import once the package enters its destination country. Across Europe the VAT rate is usually also somewhere around 20% so the saving made by not paying UK VAT is generally evened out by having to then pay local VAT when the package enters its destination country.

Customs duty/admin fees
You may also be charged customs duty and in some cases even an admin fee when the package crosses the border. If this happens, make sure you keep your receipt so you can forward it to us. When we receive your receipt, we will refund these extra fees back to your account.

In short…
Our non-UK based customers shouldn’t have to pay more for their products than our customers in the UK.

If you’re unsure about anything, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with our friendly team.
