A: PurePail Classic is 20.5" x 9.75" (52.1 cm x 24.8 cm).
A: Our pails were designed and tested for newborn to size 6 disposable diapers. So, the flap size on top and odor control technology is based on this size range. That said, we don’t see a reason you can’t use it for this purpose. Just check to make sure the size/density of your selected diapers are similar to the newborn to size 6. If they are not similarly sized, the membrane and lid may not function properly. Also, more frequent changing of pail and/or charcoal filters may be necessary to better control odors. Thanks for asking such a great question!
A: Given our pail was designed specifically for infants and toddlers, we don’t have data available on adult diapers. The capacity for newborn diapers is 20% larger than leading brands. While that is based on a much smaller size, hopefully that helps address the capacity comparison. Also, one other item to consider is the size of adult diaper being used and if the opening at the top would be too small to put the diaper through.
A: Yes, our pail can accommodate adult diapers. With no twisting, cutting, or canisters to deal with, you should find the set up convenient. For adult use, you may want to change the charcoal filter more often, but you should experience the same great odor control!
A: The PurePail Classic diaper pail holds 25 diapers per bag, you will need to replace the bag when diapers will no longer fit through the membrane door.
A: In a pinch you can use a standard trash bag, however we recommend our PurePail 7-layer refill bags that have a unique odor trapping technology. The 7-layers of thin plastic film create an odor barrier so oxygen can’t pass through the layers, making it impossible for smelly diaper odors to escape!
