FAQ

Using PayPal

Posted by Scott

PayPal

We accept PayPal on our web sites because it is an easy and safe way to send payment.

A question came in from a customer today. Before he placed his order (to take advantage of the special sale on now!) he wanted to know if he would incur any extra charges if he used PayPal.

Good question. The answer is no. There are no extra fees for the customer if they choose to pay with PayPal.

We’re using this question to start a new FAQ section on Buzz for frequently asked questions.

Envirolet in Colorado "Outhouse"

Posted by Scott

Jerry in sent in a very funny photo of the Envirolet® installed in an “outhouse” in Colorado.

Tipping Outhouse


“Hi, we thought you might enjoy this photo of how we got the toilet into our little outhouse! I think we actually purchased the unit in December, 2004 but we didn’t set it up until this past spring.

When we unpacked it and carried it down to the outhouse, we figured it would go through the door. But when I built the outhouse I only put in a 24” door never expecting to have a toilet this size! So we unbolted the walls from the foundation & tipped the outhouse and put the toilet in. It works!”

Thank you,
Jerry L.


Thanks for the photo! We appreciate it.

Envirolet Allows for "Dream Cabin" in South Carolina

Posted by Scott

Thanks to Pete and Lydia in South Carolina for sending in some great photos and comments about their Envirolet® MS10 composting toilet system. The waterless Envirolet® has allowed them to build their “dream cabin.”

“We have a cabin in the low country of Charleston in a place with no sewer and no septic allowed. This system allowed us to build a dream cabin on the creek for fishing, swimming and playing while giving us compost for our garden. Thanks Envirolet!”

Envirolet in Washington: "We love it."

Posted by Scott

An Envirolet® in Washington is helping keep the water clean for the clams and oysters!

Thanks to Tom for sending in photos and a testimonial about his Envirolet® Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System (120VAC) installation. A great feature of the Envirolet® Waterless Remote is that it does not require a drain for excess liquids.


“We installed our Envirolet composting toilet in Washington where we’ve built a vacation cabin on an acre of waterfront in a saltwater estuary on the Puget Sound. Since we have some of the best tasting, cleanest clams and oysters in the state on our beach, we want to keep them that way. So we decided on a composting toilet.

It’s been great! The “biffy” stands up to the needs of our family, small groups, and occasional larger parties with no problem. We love it. I’ve enclosed some pictures.

Envirolet in Washington "has worked out terrifically."

Posted by Scott

Another Envirolet® solving sanitation issues and making life more enjoyable at the cabin! This Envirolet® MS10 Composting Toilet System is in Washington and Nicholas was kind enough to send in some photos and a testimonial.


“Hi! I’ve attached 2 photos of our Envirolet installation in our sleeping cabin.

Testimonial: We built a sleeping cabin on our property for our friends and family who would come to visit. At first, anyone wanting to use the bathroom had to come into our house (often during single digit weather).

Plumbing the cabin the traditional way just wasn’t practical, so we installed an Envirolet toilet and a portable self-contained sink. This has worked out terrifically, and our guests are very pleased…and impressed with our composting toilet.

Sincerely,
Nicholas A.
Washington

"Many thanks for producing such a good product"

Posted by Scott

Denise and Richard in BC sent us some awesome photos of their Envirolet® Waterless Remote System (in Canada go here) installed in their “outhouse.” Looks great! We are glad to report the system is working great for them and has made life a little easier!


“Hello!

We have property in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island and we camp there with our dogs as many weekends as we can April through October. We replaced our “outhouse” with an Envirolet Waterless Remote system three years ago, and roughing it isn’t so rough anymore… it’s been great!

Took us the better part of a summer to prepare and construct the building for it, but it was the best thing we ever did.

Many thanks for producing such a good product.”

"The Martha's Vineyard Killer" & Her Envirolet Low Water Remote

Posted by Scott

Cynthia Thanks to Cynthia Riggs, known on Martha’s Vineyard tours as the “The Martha’s Vineyard Killer,” who was kind enough to send us some photos of her Envirolet® Low Water Remote System (Non-Electric) installation on her land-locked 37’ boat.

Killer? That’s right! Cynthia has poisoned, knifed, blown up, shot, or bludgeoned about two dozen people — in her murder mystery novels!

Check our her web site and her books on Amazon.com.


“To Envirolet Buzz:

Small installations? Try a land based wooden boat named Victorious, a 1967 37-foot Egg Harbor sport fisherman that’s going to need years of work before she can put to sea. In the meantime, she’s parked in a pasture on Martha’s Vineyard where she’s being used as an office. The nearest toilet was far away until we installed the Envirolet. No fans, no moving parts, simply flush with water from a container (no water connection on board as yet).”

Cynthia R.



Envirolet LWRS on Martha's Vineyard


Photo 1. Victorious, 1967 37-foot Egg Harbor sport fisherman in her long-term parking, a pasture on Martha’s Vineyard. The white pipe is the ventilation unit topped by a wind-driven fan.

Photo 2. Interior of Victorious. The bathroom, or “head”, is between the settee and the steps. The head has shower, sink, and toilet in a 4’ x 4’ space. Can’t get much more compact than this.

Photo 3. Envirolet in place on Victorious. Sink and shower are to the right.

Thanks again, Cynthia. And, maybe you can include Envirolet® in one of your stories!

"Love our Waterless Remote"

Posted by Scott

Lawrence in Oregon sent us some wonderful comments about his Envirolet® Waterless Remote System with a recent order. He writes:

“4 years and working great… love our waterless remote unit at 5000 feet, Summer and Winter… Lake of The Woods, OR… USFS is making (about time) everyone take out (or line vault) their outhouses. Have been showing our Envirolet Remote to anyone who enquirers. Hope you get some orders.

One of your accelerators is even a Christmas present this year.”
