Life with a composting toilet
How it looks – We think our toilets are works of art; most people think that what they see in their bathroom, depending on the model, looks just like a flushing toilet, but without the water wasting cistern (aka waterless toilet).
Maintenance – Less than an hour per year.
Cleaning – The pedestal is shaped such that it is unlikely to soil. You can clean the pedestal as you would a flushing toilet; just use our enzymes in place of disinfectant.
Odours – There is absolutely no smell in the bathroom; all odours are removed by a 12 volt fan.
