Plumbing Tip: Composting Toilet for Unplumbed Areas

A Sun Mar Compost ToiletDid you know that using a composting toilet can save you 30 to 40 percent of your household water output? Or that you can install one in as little as a half-hour? In a Networx article by Noah Garfinkel you can learn more details about the benefits (and lack of smell) of having a composting toilet. “Compost toilets, if you haven’t already figured out from the context clues, are toilets that collect your waste and break it down into compost rather than using a plumbing system like we have in NYC to sweep away into a septic system or sewage grid,” he states.

You can install a composting toilet if you’d like to add a bathroom area to your home for an elderly or disabled family member, or to an outdoor pool house, without the need to attach the toilet to the plumbing lines.
