Toilets! How and where we make our personal deposits is a subject we don`t think about too often and if we do its usually with a degree of embarrassment. However since way before the days when throwing the contents of the chamber pot into the street was considered the last word in acceptable hygiene, the human race has had to find ways of disposing of our natural bodily waste.
Whilst today we have the convenience of `flush-and-forget` not every location has the luxury of mains sewage, nor the means to install it.
Consumers today are very keen to minimize their environmental footprint by considering water conservation plus living a low-impact lifestyle where possible. So, what is the solution? Read on to learn more...
In many areas where water is in short supply or difficult to source and a suitable sewage system is unavailable, the traditional toilet arrangement might not even be an option. Even in areas where clean water runs freely and sewage simply disappears down the pan, the forward thinking and environmentally aware glamping site owner would be well advised to consider all of the available options. One well worth considering is composting your own waste. Not only will your toilets be smell free, you will have saved a considerable amount of time, expense and energy by not digging trenches for water in or sewage out
Only 1% of the Earths water is drinkable, and we flush 30% of that down the loo daily. In addition, if you are unable to connect to a main sewer, your choice is either a cesspit or a septic tank. The latter can leach harmful pathogens into our water system and, if you source your water locally, that can be especially dangerous
So, if you can, imagine a toilet that has no need for water, plumbing, sewage outlet, septic tank or cesspit and can be put anywhere, even where you couldn`t put a conventional WC, i.e. rocky outcrops, areas with a high water table, in the middle of a wood or a field. There is such a product, a `Dry Separating toilet` which mimics the design of the human body, urine goes one way, the solid material another, as we were designed. The obvious design, which utilises our natural microorganisms to create excellent compost and fertiliser.
Urine, which is non-toxic grey water is ether drained or soaked away, the solids over a period of time are broken down, this process destroys the harmful pathogens and the anaerobic microorganisms that create the foul odours. There are no smells, or waste, just two useful, usable products that can be added to the garden compost. Other important assets of this system are saving money and water. Not requiring sewage connection reduces utility bills and water will be saved
The benefits will enable site owners and clients to achieve a low impact system of sanitation, which are a pleasure to use and very easily maintained.
Why pay to send it away
Composting our human by-products is not alien or distasteful but sensible, safe,
Eco-friendly and the ideal solution for all.
