"We love it."

Posted by Scott

Ellen and Jim sent us a couple of photos and kind words about their Envirolet® Waterless Remote System with a Green Granite Waterless Toilet.

“Hi there,

My name is Ellen S.

My husband and I have a summer beach cottage in RI. We installed one of the green granite waterless toilets in our beach house last April and we love it.

Some of our neighbors installed the white one but my husband wanted to be different so we purchased one of the colors that you sell. I’m glad we did, I like green granite color.

There is no septic system and we have well water. There are public bathrooms at the beach we can use but they are only open from May 15 to Oct 15 so by us installing our new Envirolet toilet we were able to stay at the beach from April to December and enjoy using our new bathroom with our own toilet.”

Thank you,
Ellen & Jim S

Here is a closer look at what the Green Granite Waterless Toilet looks like:


It sounds like Ellen and Jim might be one of the neighbors mentioned previously on Buzz!

Comments: After ordering the Envirolet composting toilet from Sancor, I immediately recieved an email confirming my order with a tentative shipping date. When the order was shipped, I then recived another email with the tracking number and the shipper so that I could track my shipment. The item arrived within the time stated and in very good condition. I am very pleased with the service I recieved and would order from Sancor again.

Green Message is Spreading!

Posted by Scott

Our friends at Greenthinkers ran some the more “green” of the Superbowl commercials.

Below is one for the Ford Escape Hybrid starring Kermit the Frog, who discovers that it isn’t always that hard to be green.

We’re more than pleased that the green message is truly hitting the mainstream. Buy a hybrid car to use to get your cottage to use your Envirolet® composting toilet!

"I'm impressed. And I haven't even bought one yet."

Posted by Scott

A future Envirolet® customer sent us this great letter detailing some of the reasons they are going to go with an Envirolet®.

The comments about customer service and product support (“Some of the systems I’ve looked at leave you out in the cold after you buy it. “What? You spent $1500 for our system AND you expect support for it?”“) are especially timely after our just announced warranty increase.

“I’m impressed. And I haven’t even bought one yet.

My wife and I just bought property out in the woods and we did not want to have a septic system for our toilet.

We’ve got the sink and shower water discharge covered by using non-toxic soaps and shampoos. We hope.

We expected to find environmentally friendly composting toilet designs. I found several systems that fulfill that.

What impresses me is how consumer friendly your design is. Other companies seem to say “if you REALLY love the environment you’ll suffer some (or a lot of) inconvenience.” You have that solved.

The next thing I’m impressed with is how finished your product looks. A lot of other systems look pieced together from parts you’d find at a hardware store.

Another thing I’m impressed with is your consumer followup. Some of the systems I’ve looked at leave you out in the cold after you buy it. “What? You spent $1500 for our system AND you expect support for it?” {evil laughter follows}

We are in the early stages of getting our land ready to move on to, so we haven’t bought a system, yet.

When the time comes to buy a system there is no doubt in my mind where I’m going to get it.”

The Longest Warranty in the Industry Just Got Longer

Posted by Scott

The new Envirolet® Care Protection Plan gives you even more security!

Envirolet® Composting Toilets already have the longest warranty in the composting toilet industry with a comprehensive 4-Year Warranty on all Internal Components and a Lifetime Warranty on the System Body.

So, what’s changed? We have made the warranty even longer! The Lifetime Warranty stays the same (not much room to move here!).

But, the warranty on Internal Components increases from an already industry leading 4-Years to an even longer 5-Years!

The 5-Year Internal Component Warranty important system components like the Envirolet® Works-in-a-Drawer™ Power Module (that houses your fans, thermostats and heater), the Rake, Aerator, Aeration Basket, Mulcherators and more!

Continual manufacturing and component quality improvements made this a logical increase to provide even more protection to our customers.

The new warranty goes into effect 02/06/06. If you have recently purchased a system, it is possible to get coverage under the new warranty. Please contact us for details.
