Envirolet Reviews: Envirolet Hybrid Waterless Self-Contained
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!”
