Envirolet BP in New Mexico
Some nice words and photos from Leon in New Mexico about his Envirolet Basic Plus (Non-Electric) waterless all-in-one composting toilet system installation.
"Greetings, Attached is my testimonial [see below] and pictures from the installation of my new Envirolet composting toilet. It states simply and honestly my feelings. As you can see from my testimonial, privacy is an integral to a simple life and I ask that you respect that by not using my identity in any public venue. Thank you,"
"During the past several years my goal has been to protect my simple lifestyle through Emergency Preparedness. I live in the high dessert of New Mexico where potable fresh water continues to be a very precious resource. In a recent article, it was estimated that New Mexico has only a ten year supply of fresh potable water remaining. Yet, construction continues, and this declining resource must be shared by more and more people.
I live alone and enjoy a life of voluntary simplicity. And yet, I find that I must do more to protect my way of life. This is precisely why I installed the Envirolet Waterless Self-contained Basic Plus Non Electric composting toilet. Where I live, if the electric grid goes down so does my water supply. The communal well pump is electric and there is no generator or backup storage.
I started my research on composting toilets with Envirolet based on the recommendation of a friend. I read their informative catalog, the installation and operating manuals and the testimonials posted on the Internet from customers who have purchased the self- contained unit. I used Google to widen my search but ended where I started with Envirolet. I also called Tech Support with questions not answered elsewhere.
I have also recently added a stand alone photovoltaic solar system and a second independent source of heat should the natural gas supply be interrupted. I am really serious about Emergency Preparedness.
My Envirolet composting toilet satisfies my two Emergency Preparedness requirements of (a) being independent of the electric grid and (b) reducing my personal consumption of a very precious natural resource."
