    Composting Toilets

    Composting_toiletComposting toilets have improved so much in recent years that they're now becoming a serious option for year round use. If your renovation plans include the addition of a guest bedroom with another toilet but you can't afford to upgrade your whole septic system too, this option might work for you. Composting toilets are ideal for lakefront properties that can't accommodate a conventional septic system.

    While we cannot recommend any one brand over another, we offer some links to suppliers and some of the different models they offer to help you see what's available and how they work.

    Composting Toilet World provides an excellent description of how composting toilets work and their benefits over traditional septic systems in certain locations. They offer the Envirolet Composting Toilet.

    EcoEthic offers the MullToa Waterless Composting Toilet as well as a number of environmentally-friendly septic products.

    Let's Go Green is the supplier for three types of Sun-Mar composting toilets, available as either self-contained units or central composting systems. Sun-Mar is usually available from local hardware stores.

    Biolet composting toilets are waterless and are also usually available in Ontario through local hardware stores. Their website offers a good overview on composting toilets and how they are maintained.

    Cottage Life provides some factors you should consider before investing in a composting toilet.
