Things to know about composting toilets for weekend houses and tiny houses
The Swedes and Norwegians have been showing us for decades. Why waste water, why lay expensive sewage pipes. With a dry composting toilet you don't need either!
As unusual as it sounds, it's simple. By separating, you avoid the stench that would come from mixing solids and urine. Your residue does not become black water but remains natural, and you can use it as fertilizer.
You can install the toilet anywhere. Depending on the type of bathroom, you only need an exhaust hose to help dry it.
Depending on the type of dry toilet, you have a canister built in as a liquid tank, or you drain your urine into an external canister. The solid tanks are designed so that you can use the dry composting toilet for a long time without emptying it.
The litter (small animal litter, wood shavings, Terra Preta) helps with drying and odor retention and also turns your solids into a valuable resource.
So you can enjoy your time quite relaxed without living too minimal.
Meanwhile, there is the right model for every taste. No matter whether you love wood or prefer a modern form. Thanks to the innovation of many manufacturers you will find the right dry composting toilet for your TinyHouse or for your Summer House here.
