Composting toilets are all the rage among RVers and van lifers. Are you ready to join the trend? There’s lots to know about composting toilets, but you’ll quickly realize how convenient and easy to use these toilets are.
A composting toilet decomposes and evaporates waste without using chemicals. It has a urine compartment and a drum for waste. A common compost material used in the waste drum is coconut coir.
There are numerous benefits of a composting toilet, including reducing the need for traditional plumbing. The toilet doesn’t require the connection of any plumbing. It also decreases water waste and its impact on the environment. And the compost can also be used to fertilize plants. In addition, a compost toilet is ideal for RVs or if you live in an area without plumbing.
There are some drawbacks to composting toilets. For example, they tend to be larger than traditional toilets, so they don’t necessarily save on space. Another disadvantage is having to empty the urine container.
