Why go waterless? Eco-friendly toilets that take the water out of flushing

March 15, 2018 0 Comments

You don’t need to be a tree-hugger to want to buy a waterless toilet.  You just need to want to use a toilet somewhere that the water grid doesn’t go.  These off-grid toilets are incredibly versatile – they work well as boat toilets, RV and camper toilets, garden and allotment toilets – even ice fishing toilets!

There numerous benefits to buying a waterless toilet beyond the convenience of where you can put it.  First, water is a precious resource – only 3% of all water on the planet is fresh water that we can use for drinking and daily use, and much of that is actually currently trapped in ice (though how much longer is another problem entirely, for another blog post).  It seems silly in this day and age to still be wasting such a precious resource on transporting our waste!

But thinking beyond the planet to your own pocketbook, not using water to flush saves you money as well!  As much as 47% of household water bills come from the bathroom in the US, with 24% of the bill attributable to flushing toilets.

Finally, depending on the type of waterless toilet you choose, you may be able to turn the waste into something valuable – fertilizer for your garden or allotment!

There are three main types of waterless toilet that you can choose from, depending on where you want to use it and what you do – or don’t – want to get out of it:

  • Packaging toilets
  • Composting toilets
  • Incinerating toilets

In our next blog post, we will explain the ins and outs of those three types to help you choose the best waterless toilet to suit your needs.
