Envirolet Waterless Remote Composting Toilet on Island in British Columbia

Posted by Tara

Rosemary and Ric in British Columbia sent in a photo and testimonial of their Envirolet® Waterless Self-Contained Composting Toilet. Envirolet works well for island use.

“Here are a couple of photos of our Envirolet. We have been using it full-time for about 4 years on our arid island in BC. Using no water makes it a special feature. Our guests often are amazed at it’s performance and are impressed with its design. Any time we have required assistance, we have been very pleased with the helpful people who are always ready to solve any problem or fulfill an order for us.

The useful compost goes around our garden and certainly perks up the trees and shrubs.

Thanking you in advance”

Envirolet Works-in-a-Drawer Box (Part 2, WSC)

Posted by Scott

About a week ago we posted about the benefits of the Envirolet® Works-in-a-Drawer Box (WID Box). We used a remote system tank to demonstrate. Below is an animation of the WID Box in an Envirolet® Waterless Self-Contained System.

WID Box Explained
Envirolet® advanced composting toilet systems are designed so that all electrical components (DC and AC models) are located in an easy-to-access Works-in-a-Drawer™ (or WID Box) electrical box. In an Envirolet® AC model this includes 2 fans, a heater and 2 thermostats. DC models have 2 fans.

The WID Box simply pulls out of the top of the composting unit. It is located away from waste material at the top of the system. This is convenient, safe and just makes sense. Especially in remote-type units that are located outside on potentially moist or wet ground. Compare to others where the heater is located in the bottom of composting unit.

Envirolet Works-in-a-Drawer Box

This unique feature also makes all Envirolet® Systems power-convertible. You can simply insert the WID Box for the power you want or remove it to have a Non-Electric system.

Envirolet Reviews: DC12 Waterless Self-Contained in New Mexico

Posted by Tara

Thanks to Mark in New Mexico for sending comments and photos of his Envirolet® Waterless Self-Contained 12v Composting Toilet.

“I installed a 12 volt self-contained unit and have been very pleased with its performance. It is used in a weekend cabin and the fans are off when the cabin is not in use. There has never been an odor and the unit is easy to maintain.

Thank You!

Envirolet Reviews: Envirolet Hybrid Waterless Self-Contained

Posted by Tara

Pat from Wyoming sent us comments and photos of their Envirolet® Hybrid Waterless Self-Contained Composting Toilet that is powered by solar panels.

“We installed a waterless hybrid Envirolet toilet in our mountaintop log cabin in Wyoming two years ago. We’re better than a mile off the electrical grid, so the fans run continuously off a small set of solar panels, and the heater runs for an hour at a time 3 times a day powered by a larger set of solar panels which also provide our lights and other minor electrical uses. We have been very pleased with the operation of the unit … it’s simple, effective, and a heck of a lot more pleasant than the old outhouse.

We really appreciated the help of Envirolet’s tech support people, who pointed us to the hybrid model as a good compromise between our need to stay low power, and our county inspector’s insistence that the completely un-powered model would require a full-size septic field, which we really didn’t want to try to install in the very rocky ground.”

Thanks for making our weekend retreat more comfortable by far!”

Envirolet Reviews: Waterless Self-Contained at Cabin in West Virginia

Posted by Tara

Thanks to Christy and Tommy in West Virginia for sending a testimonial and photos of their Envirolet® Waterless Self-Contained Composting Toilet that is fun to talk about too!

“We have a small cabin in the woods in West Virginia, where we spend weekends. Before we installed our Envirolet, we were using a port-a-potty. What a difference! Worth every penny, and way less expensive than a septic system. We are so impressed with the Envirolet. It works great, and is an interesting conversation piece as well.”

Envirolet Reviews: "Green" Solution for Rental Cottage in Kentucky

Posted by Tara

Doreen from Kentucky commented on her positive experience with having an Envirolet® in a rental property. Yes, even your tenants can manage an Envirolet® Composting Toilet!

“I have a cottage that I fixed up for a rental property several years ago. It sits on the side of a hill, so there was no way to put in a septic system. The Envirolet saved the day. It has operated faithfully and well through several tenants. They have had no problem learning how to manage it. It gives off no odor at all and is a handsome addition to the bathroom. It’s also an interesting conversation piece and fits right in with the new “green” movement.”

Envirolet Reviews: Non-Electric Low Water Remote at Ontario Cottage

Posted by Tara

Barry from Ontario sent us his comments and photos of their Envirolet® Low Water Non-Electric Remote Composting Toilet Barry learned that they can pour water into an Envirolet® Low Water when running water is not available.

“We got a non-electric Envirolet composting toilet at our cottage in 2001. We did not even have running water. I asked Envirolet if we could use it by pouring water into it and was told we could. I found the toilet including the holding tank easy to install and the instructions informative and easy to understand. The toilet was easy to use. Pouring water into it worked fine. The next year emptying it was easy to do.

We are quite satisfied with our Envirolet toilet, would buy it again and would recommend it to others.”

Your truly,

Envirolet Reviews: Waterless Remote at Camp in Connecticut

Posted by Tara

Steve and Patty in Connecticut sent us their testimonial and photos of their Envirolet® Waterless Remote Composting Toilet that they use in the Summer and Winter!

“This was one of the easiest projects that I completed. Spending a couple of thousand dollars was much more practical then spending $25,000 for a hole in the ground for our camp.

Winter and summer, this has kept up with our family of 7 along with many visitors. No smell inside, I should probably extend the chimney a little to avoid the occasional down wind smell. Still much better than the old outhouse.”
