Envirolet Waterless Remote in Vermont - "LOVE IT!"

Bill and Mary in Vermont were kind enough to send some photos and comments about their Envirolet Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System… and they "LOVE IT!"  They write:


"Hi,

SOooooo we decided, after a lot of research, to go with the Envirolet.  AND LOVE IT!  NO smells…. LOOKS normal (even when you lift the lid).  Our house guests have had no problems.  I have a cute little canister with the daily mix and signs on how to put two scoops a day 'down the hatch'.  Along with signs on using the tp.

Toilet itself is on the second floor with the base directly below on the first floor in the utility room.  Again, no smells.  I have a tassel on the rake bar with another note on how to give it a couple pulls once a day.
 
Thanks!"

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,"

Leon
New Mexico

Attached testimonial:

"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."

Thanks for the wonderful photos and testimonial, we really appreciate it!

Envirolet FlushSmart in Minnesota

Thanks to Lars in Minnesota for sending in his terrific photos and comments about his Envirolet FlushSmart VF System installation in his Minnesota cabin.

"First year with the Flushsmart system, a great addition to our new cabin. Simple, elegant, and well designed, also makes the trip to outhouse in the middle of night something you don't need to do anymore.

Connected to our rain water reservoir system the the toilet and compost tank work perfect. No worries about a septic freezing in the Winter, or having to have a truck get to our cabin to pump out a tank. I think this is a great solution for most cabins. Certainly use me a reference."

Thanks,

Envirolet Waterless Remote in Minneapolis

This is a great testimonial from Bob and Jean in Minneapolis!  They installed an Envirolet Waterless Remote System (120VAC) recently but are happy with the results and convenience.


"In April, 2011, we purchased the Envirolet composting electric toilet for our lake bunkhouse in Minnesota. We are delighted to report that this toilet has been used regularly throughout the latter part of the summer with no problem, no odor and a minimum of upkeep. It has not only provided comfort to folks using the bunkhouse, but has minimized water and septic usage in our main cabin bathroom. Although the Envirolet has been in use for only a short time thus far, we are optimistic for its positive function in summers to come."

Envirolet in BC Cabin

Thanks to Lyn and Brad for their photos and testimonial about their Envirolet MS10 waterless composting tolet system in British Columbia. They write:

"Our family has a cabin at Sproat Lake, outside of Port Alberni, BC.

After much consideration (and taking into account, 'my' fear of things that go bump in the night), "Envirolet" proved to be the answer to the long trek in the dark, up the hill to the outhouse.

We have included a picture of the shower-shed, and also a picture of one of the uninvited guests that frequent our property. The bears are so silent and appear when you least expect them. This year the bears are especially active along the lakeside, as the lake is home to a large run of Sockeye Salmon come into the lake for spawning - the run was counted at 800,000 fish. 'Buffet' is open!"

Envirolet in Illinois Garage for 8+ Years

Mike in Illinois sent some photos and excellent comments about his Envirolet MS10 waterless composting toilet used in his garage. He writes:

“Dear Envirolet,

I installed your waterless toilet in my garage on 6-3-2003. It has worked flawlessly since — 8 years running. We have a sunroom attached to our detached garage. Your product eliminates the need (pun intended) to have to walk inside the house to use the toilet. We empty it once per year and it's easy!”

"Envirolet we love you!!"

We received some awesome comments and photos from Ed in Ontario about his Envirolet Low Water Remote System installation. The first sentence says it all: "Envirolet we love you!!" Read it all below.

“Envirolet we love you!!

Eight years ago we bought a cottage in what is called an environmentally challenged area. The place had a great location close to the water and near town BUT all the neighbors had outhouses. The problem was low elevation and high water table making septic systems out of the question.

I searched the internet and found Envirolet. We checked it out at the Toronto Cottage Life Show and were sold.

Installation was EASY and PRETTY QUICK ( like 6 hours !!!!!). We had a very small bedroom/bunk room that we could squeeze in a toilet, shower and small vanity . The Envirolet low water toilet went in no time and we just set the outside unit on a few patio tiles and ran an extension cord to it. That night was bliss. No going out in the middle of the night to use the outhouse!!!!!!!!

The next morning I realized that we had added thousands to the value of our cottage for very little work and helped the environment by doing away with the outhouse.

As you can see we have built a small shed over the outside part and everyone thinks it is a garden shed.

We have had no problems with this system and it is soooo easy to maintain.”

Sincerely, Ed W. Ontario

Their Second Envirolet MS10

Not many products out there last almost 20 years.  But, this is a great testimonial sent in by Peter and Manuelita in Ontario shows that Envirolet does.  The photos are of their second Envirolet MS10 waterless composting toilet system.  Their first MS10 was used for 18 years.

They write:

"To Whom It May Concern,

We purchased our second unit 20/07/2011.  Our first one had lasted 18 years.

While we were at the show room in Oshawa purchasing and picking our unit, we were told that we could receive a coupon for Envirolet merchandise if we sent in pictures of our installed unit.

And so, here are our pictures."

Envirolet WSC in Ohio Camp

We received some wonderful comments and photos from our customer Richard in Ohio about his Envirolet waterless self-contained composting toilet camp installation.  He writes:


"I see on the internet that by sending in a picture of my Envirolet installed. I can receive a $50.00 credit, thanks but no thanks. I'm not interested in a credit because of you being so nice and so helpful. Thank you.

When I drew up the plans and built our retreat in the mountains (Crystal Creek Camp) nothing was thrown together or done second rate, but done as best as I could. I am sending some snapshots. As you will see some people have told me. "If Crystal Creek Camp isn't the most beautiful place in the world it comes in a damn close second."

If your company would like to use any of these  pictures for promotion they have my permission because of your help.  They can quote me.  "Nothing was done second rate including the bathroom, I did a lot of study and found Envirolet is the best and that's why it is in Crystal Creek  Camps' bathroom."

Thanks again,
Richard D.

Envirolet in Ontario Bunkie

Lori and Bryan sent us some nice photos and awesome comments about their Envirolet waterless self-contained composting toilet bunkie installation in Parry Sound, Ontario.  Read their comments below:


"Hi Envirolet readers:
 
5 years ago (or so) our family built a bunkhouse at our cottage in Parry Sound, Ontario.
 
Due to the fact that it is built on rock and cannot support a septic bed in that area, after much research and deliberation we installed a grey water system and decided on purchasing an Envirolet Self Contained system.  This unit is surprisingly easy to clean, operate and maintain.  It is amazingly quiet, but most importantly, the heaters and fans in this unit ensure that there is never any odor, and that the compost is easily disposed of. 
 
In those 5 years (or so), we have not had any difficulty or maintenance issues with our unit, and we're certain that if were in a position to purchase yet another composting toilet - Envirolet would most certainly be our brand of choice once again."

Envirolet DC12 in Vermont "Outperforms" Competitive Models

Enviroletdc12_vt


We love Jack from New Hampshire's comments about his Envirolet DC12 (12VDC) installed at his camp in Vermont!  He writes how his Envirolet is "outperforming" competitive brands on the island!

Read all of what Jack wrote here:


"Dear Envirolet,

Please see the attached pictures of our installed Envirolet 12V, waterless, self-contained system.
 
We installed our Envirolet system in our remote island camp (Butler Island in Lake Champlain, VT).  The system has worked perfectly for us and emptying the system when we open up the camp in the spring has been easy.  I have seen composting toilets from other companies on the island and the performance we are getting with Envirolet exceeds what our friends are seeing with competitive brands.
 
Thanks!"

John O.

Envirolet Waterless Remote in Minnesota

Here's another Non-Electric Envirolet Waterless Remote installation to join the hundreds of others.  This excellent Envirolet composting toilet system review and collection of installation photos was sent in by Cliff in Minnesota.  Envirolet provided the solution in an application where septic was going to be too expensive.


"We purchased the Envirolet remote toilet about four (4) years ago.  Initially it was installed without a bathroom in the cabin and we just put a temporary wall around it for privacy.  Everyone (especially the women) was thankful we could actually go to the bathroom in the cabin instead of using a rock or log.  This year we finally completed the bathroom in the cabin and we can’t be more pleased. 

Our cabin is located on Lake Vermillion in northern Minnesota.  The cabin is lake access only with no electricity, water, or septic system.  It would not be cost effective for us to put in a septic system because there really isn’t a way to get equipment in the right location to do the work.  We were going to put in the traditional outhouse but couldn’t because we kept hitting a rock shelf about three (3) down and we couldn’t get government approval to proceed.  The Envirolet toilet was the way to go as it eliminated the septic system and rock shelf problem.  Thanks."

Sincerely,

Cliff B.

Envirolet Waterless Remote in Ontario

Check out this nice Envirolet review and collection of installation photos we received from Daniella and Graham in Ontario.  They have a Non-Electric Envirolet Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System (with 12VDC Turbo Fan installed in the vent line).

"Hello,
 
Here are a few pictures of our waterless remote non- electric toilet installed on our property near Haliburton, Ontario 4 years age. We have had no problems with it. There is no smell, even at the height of summer warm weather and high usage.  We did install the exhaust fan in the chimney, attached to a 12V battery and solar panel, to increase the capacity.

We own a piece of property west of Haliburton. Since we currently have no cottage a composting toilet has been a great addition and environmentally friendly alternative to an outhouse. We have found the maintenance to be minimal (empty twice/ year) and appreciate how easy it is to clean.  The best part is that there is no smell (actually less than a conventional washroom!).
 
All of our visitors love it, especially compared to a "normal" outhouse.
 
Thanks for the great product and ongoing support,"

Envirolet Basic Plus (Non-Electric) in New York


In a follow-up to their original Envirolet testimonial from 2008 (see it on Buzz here), Walter and Nancy in NY have sent in some more photos of their non-electric Envirolet Basic Plus waterless composting toilet system installation. We're glad we have been able to provide indoor plumbing at their camp!

They write:


"Dear Envirolet,


We installed a non-electric unit, with a 12VDC in line fan, in our remote camp in 2003. Our camp is located in upstate NY on the western edge of the Adirondacks. The Envirolet is installed inside our cabin. It is certainly a convenience in the cold of the winter to have indoor facilities. We empty it about twice yearly and are quite pleased with it’s function.


Our visiting friends are pleasantly surprised when they come to our "propane only" (no electricity, no plumbing) camp to have an indoor toilet available."

9-Year Old Envirolet MS10 in Michigan

Mel in Michigan sent some awesome comments about his Envirolet Waterless Self-Contained Composting Toilet System that has been installed and in use for the past 9 years.  Envirolet helped Mel save as much as $10,000!  Wow.  Read what he has to say below.

Mel writes:

"We have been using our self contained unit on a daily basis at our business for the past nine years.  By using the Envirolet system I have been able to avoid a ten thousand dollar fee of having a (2) sanitary sewer hook up installed.  Over the last nine years the only problem I had (thermostat on heater) was easily fixed in less than 15 minutes.  Right now the turbine on my exhaust pipe screams like a banshee hen when the wind is blowing quite strongly, but I am in the process of ordering a replacement and soon the screeching will stop.  I would strongly recommend an Envirolet system be installed when another system is not applicable or feasible."

Here are a couple of photos of our system after 9 years of daily use."

Melvin W.
Michigan


Thanks, Mel!  We appreciate it.


Why was his thermostat so easily to replace?
Because of the Envirolet Works-in-a-Drawer feature that allows easy access to all electrical components.

Karen writes:

“Sending a picture your way…as our recent purchase of the Low water remote is great!!! We purchased a camp in June …we have now gone from out house to in house with this great system. My husband found it easy to install and the family is enjoying the convenience and cleanliness of having an in camp bathroom…especially the ladies and children. I am attaching pictures of our bathroom is still under construction.

I did research and found your system the easiest to install, looks well made and designed for simple use. Your phone line agents were very helpful and that was the reason I decided to go with your product rather than purchase local….as I received great advice and guidance with my purchase.

We are really quite amazed at the convenience of your system and so are some of our friends and guests.

Thank you for making our get away…family camp more comfortable and enjoyable!

Envirolet Reviews: Envirolet WRS in Colorado Rockies

A big thank you you to Edward for sending in some photos and comments about his Envirolet® Waterless Remote composting toilet system that has been installed and in use in his cabin in the Colorado Rockies since 2001. As Edward states, the Envirolet® saved him thousands in comparison to a septic tank system.

Edward writes:

Buzz,

Attached are three photos of our Envirolet Waterless Remote 120VAC system installed in the crawl space under our cabin high in the Colorado Rockies. The system was installed in 2001 to replace a flush toilet which was stressing our septic system. The cost of the unit was about one tenth of the estimate for replacing the septic system. The Envirolet also has the benefit of being usable when our well is shut down in the winter.

As you can see, I had to dig a recess in order to place the toilet in the same location as the flush toilet. I was able to route the vent through the same wall and roof cut outs after enlarging them for the larger vent piping. I also had to enlarge the hatch through the bathroom floor to fit the tank through the opening. The tank rests on two short pieces of 2x6 lumber.

One unexpected benefit of the system is the exhaust venting keeps the bathroom free of odors - a particularly nice feature in a small cabin with the dining table located near the bathroom!

Envirolet Reviews: Envirolet 12VDC WRS in Northern Minnesota

Mike and his family in Northern Minnesota sent us some amazing photos and a great testimonial about their Envirolet® Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System. They write that “Bottom line, this thing is working very nicely, we are very happy with our Envirolet toilet!” but be sure to read the entire testimonial below.


Dear Envirolet:

Late last summer we installed an Envirolet 12v remote system at our family cabin in northern Minnesota. You might remember us, during the installation we called a couple of times and emailed photos to get some “live time” advice from you about location and angles of the vent pipe and flex pipe, we had an installation challenge due to pier location under the bathroom/bunkhouse addition to the cabin. (Actually, we have to drive about 15 miles to a location where we can get cell phone/wireless access, which we did a couple of times so we could email the “mock up” photos and then talk with you on the phone about optimum placement. We really appreciated your willingness to work with us over the weekend on this, great customer service.) Our cabin doesn’t have power so we also installed a small solar battery system to run the fans on the toilet. (In these pics the battery is temporarily located next to the unit, we’ve now moved it to a central location, added a couple other batteries and are also powering a cell phone booster and some other small devices.)

I’ve attached some pics of the finished product (the shower next to the toilet isn’t functional and won’t be unless and until we get some kind of water and heating system set up — but it looks inviting, kind of a decoy!). In one of them, my daughter does her best “Vanna White” imitation … .) We’ve used the toilet regularly since installation, i.e., late last summer and fall, and this spring and summer, and it has worked as advertised — no odor, little maintenance, fans have kept the mass relatively dry and mass appears to be composting quite nicely, guests love the ambiance of a “real” toilet in an airy room that looks out over lake — its a huge improvement over our old outhouse! Use has probably been what you’d refer to as light to moderate, often times only two people are using the toilet, but some weeks have been 4, 5 or 6 people using it. We haven’t had to empty it yet, will probably do that end of this fall season or early next summer, will report on that when we do.

Bottom line, this thing is working very nicely, we are very happy with our Envirolet toilet

Thanks!

Mike M.

Envirolet Reviews: Waterless Self-Contained DC12 Composting Toilet at Cabin in Newfoundland

Dave, Bonnie, and Rebecca in Newfoundland sent in some nice photos and a testimonial about their Envirolet® Waterless Self-Contained Composting Toilet System (12VDC model). Envirolet® was the solution where soil conditions posed as a problem to installing a septic system.


“Hello Buzz,

I recently purchased this Waterless Self-Contained Envirolet DC 12 toilet for our cabin in Newfoundland.

The soil conditions at our lot were such that it was difficult and expensive to install a septic system and for a couple of years I looked at these composting toilets on your web site.

Well here is the finished product, and I am proud to say that it was a simple installation, and it works great. I have a solar panel system charging my bank of batteries and they run the fans nicely. I also have a generator for back up.

We are very pleased with the system and it really works well without smell. We are quite proud of our newly completed bathroom, and feel it has added great convenience and value to our cabin.

Thanks Envirolet for the great deal and product.”

Envirolet Reviews: Envirolet WSC (12VDC) in Maine

Vince and Kim sent us some photos and a great testimonial about their Envirolet® DC12 Waterless Self-Contained composting toilet system installed at their camp in Maine. Their comments highlight the environment-friendly aspect of an Envirolet® composting toilet versus an incinerating type toilet!

“Envirolet:

Our Envirolet composting toilet is installed in our bathroom at our camp in Maine. The camp is off the grid, and currently we don’t have running water, but that doesn’t stop us from having a working toilet! We have the 12 volt electrical model which is powered by a deep cycle battery that we charge by generator (inside the small shelter seen behind the cabin) every time we visit. This summer, we will be installing a photovoltaic solar system which will ensure constant power between visits, and allow us to remove the battery from our bathroom and minimize our generator usage.

We love the convenience and stylishness of our toilet. All our friends have incinerator type toilets but they are very power hungry and require the generator to run for up to 90 minutes every time they use them. This Envirolet model is very green-friendly and suits all our needs.

Thanks for the perfect solution for us, Envirolet!

If you use these photos/testimonial, please send us a free starter kit.”

I am completely satisfied with my Envirolet waterless remote composting toilet. There is no smell at all and I have, after six months, already put some finished compost on my bed of irises! They even adapted the 12 volt system to 24 volt so I can use my solar power system to power the fan. Very helpful staff.”

Envirolet Reviews: Envirolet FlushSmart in Arizona Home

Elizabeth in Arizona sent us some amazing photos and comments of her Envirolet® FlushSmart 700 Series System installation. As you can see the modern-looking toilet looks great in the bathroom.


Lookin’ good in the bathroom!


Elizabeth writes:

“We purchased a new home with the intention of converting the study into a downstairs bedroom with bath. The Santa Fe style patio lent itself to our taking one of the arches on the patio and enclosing it for the bathroom. However, we soon learned the conventional septic system was not big enough to accommodate another bathroom. This is when we began looking for an alternative and discovered the Envirolet composting system. The toilet looks very natural in our new bathroom and our outside shed adds to the rustic feel on the property. We are thrilled with the positive assistance and support we have received from Envirolet customer service.”

Envirolet Reviews: Envirolet WSC in Oregon

Thanks to Joan in Oregon for her wonderful comments about her Envirolet® MS10 waterless composting toilet installation!

“Dear folks at Envirolet,

For 35 years I was perfectly happy using the outhouse I built when I moved onto this rural piece of Oregon land in 1972. Several years ago my cabin burned to the ground, and I had no choice but to move into in an old trailer that was on the property. There was no septic system to hook it up to, and the outhouse was now more than 150 feet further away than it had been. Long, cold winters and advancing arthritis had me looking into alternatives, and the one that interested me the most was composting toilets.

After doing much research and reading many reviews, Envirolet appeared to be the one that folks were most happy with, so I began my search for a used unit, as a new one was out of my financial reach. After a long search, I found one locally, and am tickled pink with my decision! I have had absolutely no problems or complaints with it, and it’s so easy to maintain! In fact, I can’t believe I put up with all those years of putting on my boots and my winter jacket and juggling the flashlight and the umbrella through wind and rainstorms and all that SNOW!! Not to mention that the compost produced keeps my roses happier than they’ve ever been! I tell everyone who will listen what an awesome product this is.

So thanks, Envirolet - and if you’d like to send me a Starter Kit and publish my comments, that would be great!

Joan T.
Oregon

P.S. Sorry I couldn’t get a better shot of the whole toilet, but it’s a really, really, teeny bathroom, and I was as far back as I could get (one foot in the bathtub!).”

Envirolet Reviews: Envirolet WSC in Colorado

Thanks to Linda and Al for sending in their photos of their Envirolet® composting toilet installation in the mountains of Colorado!

“We have a self-contained waterless unit in our cabin in the mountains of Colorado. It is hooked up to a 12V system for power to the fans. We have had this unit since 2003. Our cabin is in a remote area which is only 4WD accessible in the summer and we hike in on snowshoes in the winter. We have a limited water supply in the summer (as evidenced by the clawfoot tub - we heat the water on a propane stove and do have a gray water drain).

There is no way we could do a septic system and using the outhouse at night, during a rainstorm, or in the winter was NOT a pleasant experience. Since we installed the Envirolet, No Problem!!!! We would recommend this unit to anyone in a similar situation. It is easy to use, easy to clean and completely odor free! Love it!!

Envirolet Reviews: Newfoundland LWRS Installation

Thanks to David and Josephine for sending us their testimonial and installation photos of their Envirolet® Low Water Remote System in Newfoundland.

Dear Buzz:

We installed an Envirolet low water remote toilet system at our summer home in beautiful Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland. It is very difficult and costly to install a septic system. In our case it was next to impossible.

We had been using the old out house and a portable toilet but this was not ideal especially when the weather was cold and wet.

We have been using our new system since July 2009 and we could not be happier. This system is ideal for our location. We are so pleased with our purchase and would recommend it to anyone who needs one in Newfoundland. No more trips to the out house and good-bye portable toilet.

Thank you!

Envirolet Reviews: Waterless Self-Contained MS10 at Cabin in Maine

Michael and Narindar in Maine sent in photos and a testimonial of their Envirolet® Waterless Self-Contained Composting Toilet.

“We had installed an electric Envirolet in a small cabin/trailer we own in Maine. It worked very well, and when we decided to install a full septic system for the cabin (the restrictions on disposing of grey water near the shore led us to go whole hog on a full system), we moved our Envirolet to another location.

The Envirolet is located in a shed-like area on the far right of the building in a remote cabin in Maine that is only accessible by water or a half-mile hike in the woods. At this cabin we use propane to power a stove and refrigerator and gas lights, but we do have photo-voltaic power that I hope will support at least the fan element of the electric Envirolet. I have installed a wind turbine ventilator to make sure the Envirolet is well aired.

We are sold on the Envirolet way of treating fragile shoreline areas with care and respect.”

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!”

Envirolet Reviews: Waterless MS10 in NW Ontario

Thanks to Syd and family for sending a great testimonial and photos of their Envirolet® MS10 Waterless Self-Contained Composting Toilet which has made cottage life more pleasant.

“Several years ago I installed hydro power and immediately purchased an Envirolet toilet for our cottage in NW Ontario. I made the purchase after researching all of the available units on the market as well as speaking to friends at the lake who owned “other” brands. (Speaking meant listening to their horror stories).

The purchase was to make things a bit more comfortable for the ladies who attended the camp as the men would continue to use the outdoor privy. According to the women the purchase was one of my better decisions. Throughout all this time we have experienced no problems with the unit and have seen the advent now have 4 additional inside users - my 4 grandsons, twin boys age 5 1/2 years, their young brother who turned 3 this year and their cousin who had his 4th birthday in the spring of this year.

Even with this increase in use the toilet continues to operate well. As you can see from the attached photos, the only change has been the addition of a small step stool so that “the boys” can use it on their own. I don’t know what we would do without our Envirolet but I do know that cottage life would be a lot less pleasant.”

“After a long and hard examination of composting toilets, my wife and I chose Envirolet to replace the outhouse at the cottage on the St. Lawrence. We do not have power from the grid so we chose the 12 Volt Battery waterless model.

We placed our order and shortly after the toilet arrived via UPS. I had to unpack it as soon as it arrived and it was all laid out on the picnic table. The bathroom/outhouse needed some work done to it and the old toilet removed. Next came the installation of the new Envirolet. It all had to be done in one day as we were without alternate facilities.

Installation proved to be quite easy despite of my lack of dexterity with tools in a powerless environment and the Envirolet is working like a charm. We had concerns about odour in the bathroom — they were without foundation — the Envirolet toilet with the 12 Volt battery and fans has absolutely no odour at all. It is truly amazing!”

“We are the happy owners of a Envirolet waterless unit which we have installed at our beach lot on beautiful Okanagan Lake in the interior of B.C. The unit we have now is about 8 years old and still runs and looks like new, our first unit was purchased used from a Ski Hill cabin 21 years ago, even though it was used we still got a good 13 or so years of service from that unit.

Since we purchased our 2nd unit new we have retired and go to the beach a lot much more often and we have tons of company and our Envirolet never lets us down… We start it up every spring and shut it down every winter and there has never been a problem.

I’d buy another Envirolet in a flash if I needed to but we have years of service left in our present one. It still looks like new, is easy to maintain and as company always said the seat is always warm!!! Thanks for a great product that does the job in our location on a fresh water lake with no septic or sewer systems available to us.”

Envirolet MS10 in Colorado

Roger in Colorado sent us his testimonial and some great photos of his 10 year old Envirolet® MS10 composting toilet installation in Colorado!

“Good Day,

I have recently returned to my home in Colorado and am re-setting up my Envirolet (which is about ten years old now) in a workshop/art studio which is in process of being built. I am limited for space, but it fits in nicely.

I originally got it when I was living in a tee pee and wanted something easy to use and environmentally safe and it has been both. It was originally set up in a remodeled chicken coop and has served me well over the years.

As I have recently cleaned out everything I will be in need of a restart kit with the paper and compost, so I am sending these photos to see if they will qualify for the free kit.

Thanks for a great product!”

Envirolet MS10 in New Hampshire: "We love the system."

We’re glad Meg in NH loves her Envirolet® MS10 waterless composting toilet system and sent us photos and comments to prove it!

“We have used our toilet for two summers starting on our third. We rent our house on the lake and felt that putting in a larger septic system was not environmentally sound. This unit, in its own house, added the second bathroom we needed. We love the system.

Mark sent us some photos & his Envirolet® composting toilet system review. He has a low water system installed in Ontatio.

“Hi,

Attached are pictures of our low water remote Envirolet system in northern Ontario. The system works great, just as advertised. It helps keep the camp convenient and the environment clean and safe.

I’d sure like to get a starter mix kit. Let me know if these pictures qualify me for a free kit. If not, I’ll want to order one anyway to start the season.”

Envirolet Waterless Remote in PA

Kristin in Pennsylvania sent us some photos of Envirolet® during the construction process! She writes:

“Hi,

I’m attaching a couple of photos of our composting toilet and would like to receive the starter kit.

We were very excited when we started started researching the Envirolet toilets as we were not ready to install a septic at our small, rural cabin. We are very happy to be doing something so environmentally friendly and convenient. The best part is that later when we do install the septic, we will simply move this toilet to a small guest house! That’s the best kind of recycling!

This picture shows that installing the toilet during construction was a priority! I’d be happy to send pics when we complete the project this summer, hopefully.

Thank you so much.”

Envirolet MS10 in Michigan Replace Bucket "System"

We’re glad that Carl in Michigan decided to upgrade his bucket & seat “system” with a more advanced Envirolet® MS10 composting toilet system!

He writes:

“I only had one pic of my installed system so I included a shot of the one it replaced. The Envirolet is wonderful with no smell and - it makes dirt! I have the fan and light on a motion switch so they come on when you open the door. This is the greenest, most civil solution to a crappy problem.”

Envirolet in Oregon Shop

Al kindly sent us a testimonial and photos of his Envirolet® MS10 composting toilet system installation in his computer shop.

He wrote:

“Hello!! We purchased this model to add a restroom to our rural area computer shop. The current building is located too close to our water well, preventing setting up a separate septic system. The cost in digging and installing a new holding tank, then pumping it across the property to our original septic system would have been prohibited. Your system works great for the two of us. Thank you.”

They wrote:

“Oh, how great it feels not having to get up out of bed in the dark, put on shoes and trudge to the outhouse at night. Or how about not having to put on rain gear on a cold rainy day to go outside.

My Envirolet is such a welcomed addition to our cabin in northern Ontario. The pictures show it in its present location. Moving it from its original site (before our addition was built) was no problem at all. Life at the cabin has finally become civilized.”

“Dear Envirolet,

We’ve finally completed the cabin addition to accommodate our MS10 waterless composting toilet. We’re giving the privy a rest and quite happy with saving the cost of a water wasting septic system installation. The installation of the composting toilet has provided normalcy.

Cabin living has never been better, especially on winter weekend getaways and cold nights in the mountains.

In sharing our installation, we’d love to take you up on your offer for some compost accelerator. Please take a look at the installation photos documenting the final results. Thanks for a great product and great support services.”

Envirolet in Southern California Basement

Check out this testimonial and photo from Diane in Southern California. She wrote us about her Envirolet® MS10 waterless composting toilet system installed in her basement.


“Dear Buzz -

Awhile back, I had seen an Envirolet in an outbuilding that had no plumbing, and was surprised at how well it managed odors. So, when we converted an unused basement space into a recreation room, I ordered an Envirolet to “go green” and save on plumbing costs. It has been a great solution for a Southern California home where water conservation is very important.”

Envirolet Waterless Remote in PA

Diane sent us a photo and nice words today about her Envirolet® Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System that was installed in 1996.

“This is the only picture we have. It is a seasonal home, so not accessible at the moment. Besides, this isn’t the kind of thing I want to take a picture of on vacation!!

Anyway, the Envirolet has made the use of our home possible. We have not been able to get the permits for standard toilets, holding tank, etc. So without the Envirolet, we would not be able to use our log house. So far it’s been a good experience and I have to say the customer service whenever we have had a question has been great. Very knowledgeable staff and quick service. We don’t need to contact you often, but when we do we get our questions answered right away.”

Cowboy Envirolet!

Our customers continue to amaze with their creativity and design! Sylvia in California sent us her testimonial and some awesome photos of her cool 12VDC Envirolet composting toilet system “cowboy campfire” installation. Great photos!

She writes:

“I am enjoying my outdoor Envirolet Outhouse. I have a Cowboy Campfire here at the Rancho. Before the outhouse we had to come to the house and things are so much nicer now. We have Moonlight Campfires every month and everyone enjoys the “convenience.”

I have a Solar Panel on the Tack Room and it runs the battery in the Outhouse. Fun addition is the urinal, I purchased it for twenty dollars from a Porta Potty place and took about four hours stripping silver paint from it.

We had an Outhouse Warming Party to christen the new convenience.

Thanks Envirolet,
Sylvia

We have friends, that have purchased MS10’s for their cabins after seeing and using ours.

Thanks for a great system and the money we saved by not having to install a septic system.”

This one is from Todd in California who sent us his testimonial and photos of his Envirolet® DC12 composting toilet system installed in his Utah yurt. The DC12 is waterless and 12VDC.

He writes:

“My 8’X5’ outhouse is fully insulated, tiled, and has a shower. Compost toilet is working great. I don’t even have it hooked up to a 12 volt battery, and even after 8 people stayed at the yurt for 10 days straight, there was no scent! I was pretty amazed.”

Todd S.


Buzz Note: We do recommend that any 12VDC system be running as directed for best performance.

Photos with comments by Todd:


The Envirolet 12vdc battery unit. We will be purchasing a 12V battery to hook up to our current solar panel kit on the yurt.



The yurt and the outhouse are approximately 25ft apart.



This is the solar panel that will keep the 12v compost toilet battery charged.



We built an 8X5 outhouse that contains the compost toilet and a solar shower.

Envirolet Basic Plus in Wyoming

“Thanks Envirolet- you’ve made our camping experience a whole lot easier.”

Lance in Wyoming sent us some cool photos of his Envirolet® Basic Plus waterless composting toilet system installation on his camping property.


Lance writes:

“We are lucky to have found 2½ acres on Boulder Lake Wyoming located at the base of the Wind River Mountain Range.

No electricity to our property so Envirolet was our first choice and so far the system has been working perfectly.

We house the Envirolet in this custom made outhouse. Picture #3 is the view from the outhouse.

While we are on Boulder Lake we named the property Cow Pie Cove due to all the special treats the local cow population used to leave us.

We considered contacting Envirolet to see if they could offer us a solution for all the Cow Pies, but then we decided to Fence Out the cows and that resolved our issues.

Boulder Lake is located about 10 miles east of Pinedale, Wyoming at an altitude of 7000 feet.

We enjoy water skiing, wind surfing, camping, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and some spectacular scenery. Local wild life include Antelope, elk, lot’s of geese and the occasional coyote.

Thanks Envirolet- you’ve made our camping experience a whole lot easier.

Hawaiian Envirolet Waterless Remote System

More Buzz!

Here is a testimonial and photo of a unique installation of a 12v Envirolet® Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System installed on the deck of a Hawaiian cottage. Mary was kind enough to send it in to Buzz.

“Here is a short document about the use of our composting toilet. I have attached photos. If you would like more commentary or another view of the installation I would be happy to provide that.

My husband and I installed the Envirolet composting toilet on the deck of our garden cottage in Hawaii one year ago. We have been pleased with the installation and the function of the composting toilet. The toilet unit has the wind powered fanning system and that has worked well. The unit produced a tray of odorless compost after six months daily use in our family of two. We have had our family and friends visit on several different occasions and the toilet system has worked well for us.”

Thank you,

Envirolet MS10 customers in Missouri are "spreading the word" for us!

Max & Darla were kind enough to send us some photos and awesome comments about their Envirolet® composting toilet system installation in Missouri. They have an Envirolet® MS10 waterless 120VAC all-in-one model, probably the most popular composting toilet in North America. They write:

“We installed our Envirolet at our cabin in August of 2007. It is in the Ozarks of Missouri, and we use it approximately one or two weekends a month and in the summer a week or so at a time. Most of the time it is just my husband and I but we have had guests, and so far no complaints. We have only had to empty the tray two times and not sure if it needed it then. There has never been any smell from the unit. We have been more than pleased. Our land would not allow for a septic system as we seem to be on solid granite.

The first 50 years our cabin was used, the ‘outhouse’ was what was always dreaded about the vacations. So in the summer of 2007 the cabin was updated and enlarged with a full bathroom and spare room.

Needless to say we have been satisfied with our newest addition, “The Envirolet” composting toilet, and have been spreading the word. Hope some others catch on!

We are enclosing some pictures of our Envirolet and our “instructions” for use when our guests visit without us. We live 4.5 hours away so that is why we keep it unplugged.”

Max & Darla

With Envirolet: "The camp is getting a lot more use..."

We’re glad to report that Ed’s camp in Upstate NY is getting much more use since the addition of their Envirolet® Basic Plus non-electric waterless composting toilet system. Along with his Envirolet® story he sent some nice photos of the installation. He writes:

Dear Sirs:

“Attached are pictures of the Envirolet system that we put in place at our rural camp in Upstate New York State.

We have had the property in the family for over 70 years. The camp on the property was built by my father when he was a teenager, in the late ‘30s and it really hasn’t changed except for a new roof or two. There was no electricity or water. The outhouse was not in very good shape and the lady folks in particular did not look forward to having to venture to the “shed.”

Three years ago I did extensive research on an environmental sensitive waste system and decided on the Envirolet. We had a family work bee and constructed a shed and put some “fancy” improvements in side. Now our family members come and stay much longer. The ladies and children don’t mind at all a trip to the new “loo.”

The camp is getting a lot more use from the family as they can come and stay longer. That hasn’t changed over 70 years and hope it never does.”

Envirolet DC12: "We love it!"

Thanks to Ed who sent some great comments and photos of his Envirolet® DC12 12VDC waterless composting toilet system installed in the Virginia mountains.

“Hi,

My wife and I bought some land in the Virginia mountains that we and our families use for camping. It is the site of a turn of the century house and has only been used as a hunting camp for a long time.

We love going there but one thing we definitely did not like was the old outhouse. It was old, dirty, full of spiders and insects, and drafty. It is also smelly and very dark at night. We put up with it for a few years and after researching composting and other types of toilets we bought a 12VDC waterless self-contained unit several years ago.

We also bought a small shed kit that became the new “outhouse” and storage shed. We can actually store things in the shed because even though the toilet is there is it clean and doesn’t smell. I also installed a small solar powered light so we can close the doors for complete privacy. We love it! We haven’t had problems with it just using the turbine with no power at all for several years§. However, there are enough kids in the family now that when we camp we are over the capacity limit so I will hook up a solar panel and small battery that we will use on camping trips.

Ed E.



§Note: In this installation Ed is replying mainly on just the Wind Turbine (and not the fans), but we recommend using the fans at all times in 12VDC and AC Electric models for best performance, even if you are “under-capacity.”

"I love it!!!! This is my second Envirolet toilet."

Thanks to Sarah for sending in photos of her Envirolet® Waterless Remote System installation in Colorado. This is her second Envirolet® and she loves how much it functions like a “normal toilet!”

“Here are photo’s of my composting toilet that I use in my cabin in the mountains of Southern Colorado. I love it!!!! This is my second Envirolet toilet. I used to have the self contained system before my cabin was built that we kept in the shed next to our trailer. It worked great but I was always hesitant to invite guests down who were not used to “roughing it.”

Once we built the cabin we installed the remote system. It feels more like a normal toilet. I’m having trouble with my water system right now so I have to bring water with me but because I have the waterless toilet I don’t have to worry that I have no toilet facilities.

Last year I had lots of guests come with me throughout the summer and the system worked great!!! Everyone who visits is impressed with my bathroom facilities.”

Soon-to-be Envirolet® users Paul & Colleen sent in some great comments and photographs of their system. They purchased a cottage (a birthday gift for Colleen!) that had a pre-loved Envirolet® MS10 waterless composting toilet system in it. Colleen writes:

“Hi,

Ever since I knew my husband, (almost 30 years married), he always wanted a cottage on an island. (He camped on an island as a child).

Recently, Paul asked me what I wanted for my birthday (in August, I’ll be 50), and jokingly I said “a cottage.” Guess what? We take possession on the weekend of my birthday, and the cottage is on an island!!!!

I’ve always said NO to staying on an island, because of the “outhouses.” This particular cottage that we looked at has an “Envirolet Toilet,” (won’t have to use an outhouse) and that is the main reason I agreed to look at it. To me, this was one of the selling features of this cottage, and the toilet even looks good! Who knew that a toilet would be the reason I would buy a particular cottage? The previous owners installed it a couple of years ago, and just loved it.

NO MORE COMMUNAL OUTHOUSE, SHARED BY 6 OTHER COTTAGES!!!!! They have agreed to “clean it out” before the possession weekend, and they recommended your site for supplies, and a starter kit.

I called your support staff, and the 2 young ladies were extremely helpful and AWESOME to work with. I’ve attached photos of the toilet, as they recommended. The model and serial number is as follows: Sancor Multi System 10 — s/n 24-33067XXXXX [modified by Buzz].

Thank you so much for a great product, wonderful support staff, and being thoughtful about our environment.”

Sincerely,
Paul & Colleen L.

Envirolet MS10 in Wyoming Bunkhouse

Heidi sent some excellent photos of her Envirolet® MS10 waterless composting toilet system installation in her Wyoming bunkhouse. The system was installed 3 years ago. Looks great! Notice the small jar of peat moss reminding users that it needs to be added.

“We’ve updated an old Bunkhouse and Tack Shed for guests on our retirement property in northern Wyoming - now we won’t be awakened at all hours by guests sneaking in the cabin to take a middle-of-the-night wee! Thanks ENVIROLET!”

Thank you to Foster and Debbie in Nova Scotia for sending in photos and comments about the waterless Envirolet® MS10 Composting Toilet System they have installed in their cottage. They write:

“Hi,

Attached are some picture of the unit which we installed in our camp. We removed a cupboard and some other items from our storage room in the camp, and installed the toilet. The room itself still needs some work but the toilet works GREAT! No more running to the outhouse late at night! Yippee!

Harold In Texas: "Amazed at the ease of operating of our new MS10"

BUZZ WORD Greatest Thing Since Bacon & Eggs

Harold in Texas sent us some great photos and comments about his Envirolet® Composting Toilet System installation. He uses the original and very popular waterless AC electric MS10 model.

“My family and I are totally amazed at the ease of operating of our new MS10. There is no odor whatsoever even with the fans off and we are using only the wind turbine for ventilation. Installation was a breeze with minimal time expended.

We installed the Envirolet MS10 composting toilet in our cabin on our Texas ranch. We chose to vent it through the wall as seen in these pictures. The outside vent extends upward to a point above the roof top and is insulated from the wall to the turbine. The installation went very smooth and fast. We placed a rubber backed mat under the toilet to keep it from sliding on the wood floor. Also have a foot stool to assist the short legged folks.

Have had several people inquiring and seeing it and they find it hard to believe that is it as efficient and odorless as advertised, but seeing and using it makes a difference.

Also, You were right. I did not need the extra length of pipe nor the turbo fan as the vent length turned out to be only 10 feet including the wind turbine. I ran the vent through the wall and out using the two 45 deg elbows. I will heed your recommendations in the future. Your knowledge and expertise and the way you handled my inquiries and order were way above normal. Your company should be proud to have you aboard.

It is truly amazing and we have had absolutely no odor. Also a big plus is no more trips in the dark to the outhouse. Needless to say everyone thinks this is the greatest thing since bacon and eggs.

Thank you again,

Harold M.

In Washington: "Everyone really likes the comfort and convenience of the Envirolet"

Thanks to Scott in Washington State for sending in some great photos and comments about his Envirolet® Waterless Self-Contained System installed in a tool shed/outhouse.

He writes:

“Here are some pictures of our combination outhouse/tool shed. The tool shed is on one end, then there is a dividing wall, and the toilet is on the other end.

This is in a remote location where we are building a small cabin and it replaced an old pit toilet. Our Envirolet waterless self-contained toilet has been in use for a little over a year and is working great! We had a small fly population build-up*, but adding some diatomaceous earth seems to have solved that problem.

We have had a couple of multiple-family camp outs here and everyone really likes the comfort and convenience of the Envirolet. Thanks for making such a great product.”

Scott H.
Washington


*Note: Occasionally, small insects can get in the system given that it is a natural process using “good bugs” to compost waste. In fact, insects usually enter in the peat moss or soil being added. But, just like Scott H. says, if you add diatomaceous earth (a natural bug killer) it will eliminate them easily.

Envirolet FlushSmart VF System Installation Update, Part 2

This is Part 2 of a series of testimonials about an Envirolet® FlushSmart VF 700 Series model installation. Be sure to read Part 1.

Some highlights from this testimonial include:

• Dramatic reduction in size of “mass” as system composts efficiently
• Reduction in water use from 0.5L to 0.2L per flush
• Toilet tissue preferences
• The lack of noise from vacuum unit

Read on:

Friday August 24, 2007

Arrive at cottage. Check level of mass in the Envirolet Compost Unit. It is just over the Aerator bar. No odour whatsoever. Will not be adding peat moss to unit. Trying new compost mixture. Add approximately 1 cup of Sanibark wood chips and 1/3 bag of new compost mixture. Move aerator bar to spread evenly.

Confirmed with son-in-law regarding leaching pit, that he did indeed (as instructed by one of the installers of the compost toilet system) cut a 3 inch pipe, drilled holes in it, closed one end with a margarine lid taped securely, made a hole in margarine lid and inserted drain line tube into the hole. This was placed down in the leaching pit 2 to 3 feet.

Husband has insulated drain line outside barn and inside leading from Envirolet Compost Unit. This will ensure that drain line will not freeze in the winter.


Saturday, August 25, 2007

Early morning, very hot & humid at cottage. Very Faint urine smell around barn. (Editors note: Customer has vent installed lower than normal because of heavy trees.) Immediately add l cup of Sanibark wood chips and 1 cup of new compost mixture.

Late afternoon smell is totally gone! Using the Sanibark wood chips with new compost mixture (Editors note: New product we are testing.) works better than Sanibark wood chips and peat moss. With new compost mixture, smell is gone in the same day. Very pleased because we are having everyone over in the afternoon after the annual lake golf tournament. More cottagers ask to see the Envirolet VF Vacuum Flush Composting Toilet System. They are very impressed! I pass out your web site address.

Mary with Envirolet VF System


Husband placed plastic heavy duty garbage can lid over leaching pit with drain line inserted into lid. He places rocks on the lid. This will ensure that the lid does not blow away.

He cannot hook up water regulator because he could not get a union connector with a proper thread at local hardware store. Will try to come up with something else.


Sunday, August 26, 2007

Very hot & humid again. No smell! But, I am being pro-active by adding 1 cup of Sanibark wood chips and 1 cup of new compost mixture to the unit. I move aerator bar to spread evenly.


Monday, August 27, 2007

Still hot & humid. No smell. I do not add anything to unit.

Studies have shown that an average individual will have 2 liquid and 1 solid waste per day. Have done my own study for our entire family of eight over a 3 day period. Total liquid 63 and total solid waste 21; therefore, average over 3 day period is, liquid 21 and solid waste 7.


Tuesday, August 28,2007

Husband has partially closed shut off valve on the water line to reduce the amount of water by more than 1/2. Previously was 5 ltr, now 2 ltr coming into bowl. We can definitely tell the difference because I had purposely not cleaned the toilet bowl in order to see the faint colouration of the water line. (Note, when bowl is cleaned, line disappears.) It should also be noted that there was no need to add any further water for waste - but if necessary in the future, we will hold down the electronic water button to the count of 2 before flushing. Because everyone has already gone home, the real test will be next weekend (Labour Day weekend) to see how this works for everyone in the family. We will ensure to inform everyone of the reason to conserve less water in the toilet bowl, hence the unit at the end of the day and what to do if they need more water.

Envirolet VF Tank in shed


I vacuum the units opening because some insulation has gotten into it. This will allow the air to flow freely. I also vacuum the power unit box to ensure no dust is retained inside. Before going home I am now ready to do my weekly maintenance program with the unit. I am very surprised to see that the mass has been reduced even further UNDER the aerator bar. When we arrived at the cottage on Friday, the mass was over the aerator bar. I use the aerator bar to spread mass evenly. I add 1 cup of Sanibark wood chips and 1 cup of New Compost Mixture. I then sprinkle a mixture of 2 tablespoons of Activator with 1 cup of warm water. I use the aerator bar again to spread mass evenly.

I spray the toilet bowl with an environmental cleaning product bought at the local Dominion store. I like this product because it is virtually odourless and really cleans the toilet bowl of any water stains from the lake water. I also use it to clean the toilet seat.

Just one last note from the family. Everyone agrees that the biodegradable toilet paper is the worst type of toilet paper. It just falls apart and just did not stand up to tests. We have used it just to compare but now that we are out we will go back to No Name/Equality (Editor note: These are well-known Canadian brands.) 1 ply tissue.

We do all agree that the Envirolet VF Vacuum Flush Composting Toilet System is the very best system that we have every had. Someone had asked if the noise of the vacuum flush was too loud. My response was that our newborn grandson was sound asleep in the next room and the noise of the vacuum flush didn’t even wake him up!! We would definitely recommend the Envirolet VF Vacuum Flush Composting Toilet System to everyone. For us, it just works great! And for our family of 8 using the system every weekend, we just couldn’t be happier! Thank you from all of us!

Mary

Envirolet Basic Plus in Colorado

Thank you to Donna in Colorado for sending in some photos and comments about her Envirolet® Basic Plus (with added 12VDC Turbo Fan to help in high altitude). She writes:

“We have a ranch in the mountains of Colorado and we run cattle in the summer months. We are “green” - our cabin has solar power, we hand pump our water and have an outhouse. I was tired of using the outhouse in the middle of the night - so we purchased a no-power, self-contained Envirolet in 2006. Due to the altitude (~9,800 ft) and temperature we have had some challenges - we did purchase a DC [turbo] fan - it sure beats the outhouse on those cold nights!”

"This is twice that I have been more than satisfied with your service."

BUZZ WORD A big thanks to Stan (an Envirolet® Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System user) for sending an amazing letter regarding his recent experience with our customer service department. Specifically, he dealt with Anna!

He writes:

“The package arrived Thursday (I was out of town). When I opened it today (Saturday), I was very happy to find “additional” items included. I was only expecting the drain line, not the other items that will enhance my systems operation. Needless to say, I was impressed !! As I stated a year ago, for years I trained staff in Customer Relations which included all the aspects of satisfaction, recovery, problem solving, marketing, etc.

To open your package and see the extra things that you included - which I was not expecting, took me back to the many classes that I conducted. I was impressed at how your treated me as your customer. I really appreciate what you did for me. You well know the effects of a satisfied and happy customer. You also know the actions of customers who are impressed. I am most certainly impressed!! Thank you.

We are “floating” the river tomorrow where our cabin is. I’ll try and get some pictures along the way and forward them to you. I hope you enjoy them. Again, you exceeded my expectations….. a hard thing to do from an “old teacher.”

Share my comments as you see fit. This is twice that I have been more than satisfied with your service and your attention to your customers…….somehow, customer just doesn’t seem a strong enough word for how I feel about your professionalism.

Envirolet FlushSmart VF System Installation Update, Part 1

Back in July 2007 we helped install an Envirolet® FlushSmart VF 700B at a cottage in Ontario for in-the-field testing. In exchange for us installing the system the customer (Mary D. and her family) agreed to keep detailed notes and update us on the status of the system. As you will read Mary and her family are satisfied Envirolet® customers. A future post will include her most recent comments.

Original installation slide show:



The customer notes and comments have allowed us to create a multi-part testimonial (more parts to come!) and in-the-field notebook on the operation of this Envirolet® System. It has also added to the already most comprehensive collection of composting toilet testimonials, collected here on Envirolet® Buzz, complied by any manufacturer of composting toilets in the world.

Photos and notes regarding the actual installation can be found on Buzz in a post from August 1, 2007.

vf700.jpeg
In the original post, we noted that this was not a typical installation. It presented some interesting challenges with some unique installation requirements, including:

• There was a distance of 50 feet (15m) from the toilet floor in the bathroom to the VG (vacuum generator) and Compost Unit that was to be located in a stand-alone shed.

• In the first 5 feet (1.5m) the drain traveled down from the toilet about 5 feet (1.5m). In the next 35 feet (9m) the drain line was ground level (below the toilet). For the last 10 feet (3m) it had to travel up about 5 feet (1.5m).

• The wiring for the wall-mounted switch had to travel this same distance to the VG Unit.

• The customer wants to be able to use the system occasionally over the winter. So, a special heat cable was added to ensure the drain pipe does not freeze in the Canadian winters!



Here is a very detailed update that the customer (Mary D.) sent us in August 2007:

How exciting!!!

Our Envirolet vacuum flush composing Toilet System was installed today!

We are a family of 9 with grandparents, parents, children and grandchildren (includes a newborn baby) that gathers every weekend at the cottage from early spring to late fall. We also spend weeks at a time on holidays at the cottage. Because we are water access, we wait until the ice is frozen before our entire family once again can spend quality time together at our family cottage over the winter months. Therefore, our priority was finding the toilet system that was right for our family, that can be used year round (spring, summer, fall and winter) and especially was environmentally safe, which was very important to us.

When you want the best, you go to the very best in the business, Sancor Industries Ltd. A family run business for over 30 years. We know this because we purchased our first Envirolet toilet system back in 1977. 25 years later, my husband built a wee bunkie for the two of us when our youngest daughter married. Our family was expanding. Of course, we installed a second Envirolet toilet system in our cabin. And now we are ready for new technology! The Envirolet VF Vacuum Flush Composting Toilet System! We decided to go with the VF 700B model with the push-button electronic flush. I liked the look and the convenience. I loved the fact that not only was the system completely environmentally safe, it’s ceramic bowl looked very modern & slim, giving us more room in the bathroom. More importantly, we decided upon the Envirolet VF because of its advanced technology; whereby, the vacuum generator pulverizes and aerates waste for improved composting efficiency! And for a family as large as ours, you can appreciate how important this is!

Although, the Envirolet Compost Unit could have been installed directly behind the wall of the bathroom or underneath the bathroom floor, we opted to have it installed in a newly built shed that was especially built for the Envirolet Compost Unit. Before the Sancor Team arrived we had an electrician install wiring according to code in the shed. We (our son-in-law, actually) dug a 50 foot, 9” deep trench that went from the bathroom floor to the shed for the drain tube, wiring and heated cable.

Toilet in the Bathroom


The Sancor Team arrived on time. We picked them up by boat because we are water access. They worked together efficiently to install the Envirolet Vacuum Flush Composting Toilet system. Within a 3 - 4 hour time frame everything was easily installed and ready to go. The Team had thought of everything! They had the foresight to have family members test the push button electronic flush before they finalized the connection. This ensured that the little ones and other members of our family could push the “flush button - to test it”; therefore not filling the Envirolet Compost Unit with excessive “testing water”.

While the Sancor Team were installing the system, our son-in-law (isn’t he terrific?) dug a leaching pit ensuring to have a gravity drop from the composting tank drain exit to the drain site. Stones and gravel were put into the leaching pit according to local regulations.

Upon finalizing the connection, time was spent with the family specifically detailing how the Envirolet Vacuum Flush Composting Toilet System works. We were also brought into the shed and shown, “hands-on” how to maintain the Envirolet Compost Unit.

Before leaving, the Sancor Team cleaned up and removed all of the original packaging from the system.

The entire family agreed that the installation went very smoothly!!!


Monday, July 23, 2007

We marvel at how efficient the Vacuum Flush Composting Toilet System is!!!

And on top of that…. it looks great!!! We also have more space in our bathroom.

Eight family members have constantly used the system - with absolutely no complaints. We are using biodegradable rapid-dissolving toilet paper (environmentally safe). Before leaving the cottage, as per instructions given to me by the Sancor Team, I remove the service panel in the compost unit. I add one cup of peat moss mixed with one cup of wood shavings. I also add 2 tablespoons of compost accelerator with a glass of warm water to the unit. I then move the aerator bar back and forth. I turn the switch on Fans Only to test if the unit is energy efficient.

It should be noted that before our first weekend with our new system, we have had a total of 4 different cottagers over to inspect the system. They all have the same goals in mind for an efficient, environmentally safe system that could be used over the winter. We are happy to share this new technology with our friends!!!

Mary with Envirolet VF System


Friday, July 27, 2007

Back at the cottage I am pleased to see that just keeping the “Fans only” on has kept the mass dry and saved energy. I now switch to Heater & Fans. Our entire family of 9 will be up for the weekend, with four members of the family staying for a week’s holiday thereafter. System working great!! Loving it!!


Monday, July 30, 2007

I am leaving the system of Heater & Fans on, as previously stated, because of family holidays. I ensure to add peat moss mixed with wood chips and the compost accelerator mixture before I leave the cottage.


Thursday, August 2, 2007

Entire family at cottage for next 5 days. It is very hot and humid. Everyone is using the Envirolet Vacuum Flush Composting Toilet System. Shed is now insulated inside. My husband felt that insulating would help to further keep the shed’s temperature warmer in the winter months. Another cottager comes over to find out more about the Envirolet VF System. Very interested!


Sunday, August 5, 2007

Notice a very faint smell near the shed. Not surprising, we are all drinking more liquid as it continues to be very hot & humid; therefore, using the system constantly. Immediately troubleshoot by adding 1 cup of peat moss mixed with 1 cut of wood chips to system.


Tuesday, August 7, 2007

Although it continues to be very hot and humid the faint smell from the previous day is entirely gone. Remind myself and everyone else to be pro-active the next time in hot & humid weather and don’t hesitate to add peat moss & wood chips more frequently.

Because we are going home today, I add 1 cup of peat moss mixed with 1 cup of wood chips and the compost accelerator mixture in warm water and uese the aerator bar. I have purchased an environmentally safe cleaner to clean the toilet bowl & seat from the local hardware store. It works very well.

It should also be noted that we are just hitting the flush button after use, irregardless whether it is a dry or liquid mass going into the toilet. It has not been necessary to add more water when flushing.

Our children, spouses and grandchildren all agree with us that Envirolet VF Vacuum Flush Composting Toilet System is the absolute very best, most efficient system we have ever had! Especially knowing it is environmentally safe and we can use it year round. Cottagers are always helping each other; therefore, from one Family Cottage to another on a scale of 100 we rate this system 120 !!! It goes beyond our expectations!! Sancor’s new technology will totally blow you away!!




Wow! Great comments! Thank you to Mary and her family for their wonderful updates. Look for more updates in a future post.

Envirolet in Cape Cod Beach House

Envirolet® is the Sanitation Solution, Again!

Thank you to Anne P. for sending in their great photos and comments about their Envirolet® Waterless Self-Contained composting toilet system installed in their Cape Cod beach house.

They write:

“Here are some photos of our waterless, self-contained Envirolet, installed at our beach cottage overlooking Cape Cod Bay. The view from the Envirolet is of Gurnet lighthouse, especially wonderful at night!

We have no electricity or running water, so this is a good solution to the problems we encounter when there is a drought and our rain-water cistern gets low! Due to increasing family size, we will be adding a DC turbo fan this spring to increase evaporation and thus capacity.

We’ll be opening our cottage in a couple of weeks and are looking forward to our third water-worry-free season with Envirolet!

"The Envirolet is a dream at the cottage," says Ron in Ontario

Thanks to Ron in Ontario for sending his wonderful photos and comments about his Envirolet® Waterless Remote System installation at his cottage! The Waterless Remote (or WRS) is a completely waterless system that features a waterless toilet in the bathroom with the composting treatment system below. Ron describes his Envirolet® as a “dream at the cottage.”

Read more of what Ron said:

“As you can see I’m still in the reno mode, which will probably never end. My wife and i were house hunting and fell on a web site for cottages, she convinced me to go see a few and found one that is just a little over an hour away. The offer was made, papers were finalized and by October we were in. The first thing the wife said was “I’m not going out to the back-house at night with all the night crawlers and the cold temperature.”

After doing some research our Envirolet was purchased at the end of 2002. It’s been doing it’s thing ever since. We did a lot of camping in the wild before this and the potty duties were always mine. The Envirolet is a dream at the cottage.

Thanks,

Envirolet is a Holy Convenience in the UK

Churches are a popular application for Envirolet® composting toilet systems. Especially, in older churches that have no access to water. Check out this story from Country Way magazine in the UK.


holy_convenience_envirolet.jpg
Holy Convenience

It’s a case of relief all round in Wilby. No longer will parishioners sit crossed legged in St Mary’s following the installation of a unique environmentally friendly compostible toilet, a first for the diocese. Developed in the Canadian backwoods, the loo, located in its own inconspicuous wooden hut, needs no water or septic tank, only an electricity supply.

“Wilby’s showing the way. This is a very modern and responsible solution to the problem of providing toilet for a medieval building,” says Lay Elder Sheila Pipe. “It enormously expands the use the community can make of its church.” The green convenience cost about £2,500.

“We are keen to embrace modern technology into medieval buildings,” says James Halsall our DAC Secretary. “It’s a cheap option with a minimal footprint, that is removable if necessary. It makes it very much easier to grant permission for it to be installed.”

Envirolet in Antarctic at E-Base 2041

ebgl2008_badge.gif
Envirolet® can be installed anywhere! Now it’s in the Antarctic!

There is a great video testimonial showing two waterless Envirolet® Composting Toilet Systems in use in the Antarctic at the E-Base 2041 camp. E-Base is a cool project that sent a team to the Antarctic to live on renewable and clean energy.

Envirolet® helped provide the sanitation and is described in the video as their “prized possession.” It was installed in a sturdy tent structure called the “Scott Tent.”

Watch the video now.

Video still showing Envirolet® in the bathroom tent.


More About E-Base

Following his success in removing 1,500 tons of rubbish from Antarctica and with the foresight and support of the Russian Antarctic Division, Robert Swan stood at the Bellingshausen Russian base on King George Island looking down on the beach that had been cleaned. From that moment he believed that an education station in Antarctica, where the world could see the beauty of this incredible continent, would inspire and educate people around the world about climate change and play a crucial role in promoting renewable energy, preservation and conservation for future generations.

Since 2003, Robert Swan and the 2041 team have taken over 150 people from 25 nations to Antarctica. Each year these teams have contributed to the design and construction of what would be known as the E-Base.

The E-Base serves as a model for educational, environmental and energy issues. Its purpose is to inspire a global audience to tackle the issue of climate change. It shows that if we can achieve the seemingly impossible in Antarctica, then we can all take small, achievable steps in our own backyards.

The E-Base is located at Bellingshausen Station, a Russian Antarctic station at Collins Harbor on King George Island, the largest of the South Shetland Islands, located at 62°12’S, 58°58’W.

Envirolet Waterless Remote in Ontario

Brian from Arizona was kind enough to send us some great photos of his family cottage in Ontario with an Envirolet® Waterless Remote System installed in it.

He writes:

“Good morning!

I have attached pictures of our cottage on Lake of the Woods near Kenora, Ontario, with our waterless electric composter featured. We installed this unit 3 years ago, and it has been working great ever since. As we don’t use the place in the winter, the compost freezes until we return in the spring.

The waterless feature allows us to have the use of a modern facility without worrying about the possibility of pollution to the lake.

We are very pleased with the operation, and as you can see, it was installed a bit outside of clearance and exhaust angle specs, but still performs very well, a very forgiving unit.

Please send us a starter kit if you use our pictures, as this helps get the unit working again after being frozen for 6 months. Our shipping address is the same as below.

Thank you for a great product.

"We love our Envirolet" Says Missouri Customer

We love seeing unique installations. And, this definitely is one! Thanks to Kathy for sending in wonderful photos and a great story about her Envirolet® waterless composting toilet system installed on the front porch of her Missouri cabin! Read her story to find out more…

“Attached are photos of our electric composting toilet at our cabin in Missouri. We didn’t have time to build the bathroom before cold weather set in - so we put it on the front porch until spring. We love it and it’s just a couple of steps out the front door. I am reminded of the Beverly Hillbillies, but what the heck - you do what you need to do!

I’ll send more photos when it’s in it’s permanent home on the back of our log cabin. We love our Envirolet and are proud to brag to our friends how “green” we have become and friendly to Mother Earth in these approaching times of water shortage.”

Envirolet Doing the Job in Garage Apartment

Thanks to David in Ontario for sending some great photos and comments of his Envirolet® MS10 composting toilet system garage apartment installation.

He writes:

“Well it’s been a year now that I have lived in my garage apartment. Couldn’t have done it without my Envirolet. I’m attaching a couple of photos to show my little 7x5 bathroom, with the sink, shower and of course the “toilet”! A three inch hole in the roof and your done, what could be easier. It was harder running an insulated waterline, than to install the Envirolet.

This unit has served me well for a little over a year now. I’ve emptied it three times and I am still amazed at how simple and clean it is. What can I say, so far everyone I have told about it is interested in it, either for a hunting camp or a barn, the possible uses are only limited by your imagination.”

Envirolet Provides 15 Years of Service

BUZZ WORD Alex sent us some very detailed comments about his recent experience with his Envirolet® and our Customer Service Team. His fans needed replacement after 15 years of reliable service and he was able to get the parts to his cottage in less than 24 hours before a long weekend! Another advantage of dealing factory direct with the manufacturer!


Alex writes:

“Greetings!

Better late than never,

We were at the cottage for our annual vacation of 3 weeks in the Kawarthas, Ontario. It was Thursday, August 30, 2007 and the Labour Day long weekend was starting the following day and my in-laws arriving on the upcoming Saturday from Quebec for the weekend. 2 sister-in-laws and my mother in-law in tow, our Envirolet in our cottage (we are too close to the water for a septic tank) stopped working. One of the fans was Kaput! Great timing, the ladies are not big fans (ha ha) of the outhouse. It’s approximately 11:30 am Thursday, 2 days before their arrival for their weekend stay, my wife was not the happiest of people, I was freaking.

Our Envirolet was approximately 15 years old, never failed us, but NOW!

I located the toll free phone number on the container of microbes, called and was greeted by a cheerful voice of a customer service person, whose name was Petra.

Works-in-a-Drawer Box


I explained my dilemma to her, she was very professional and made me feel at ease. Was there hope? She suggested the “Works in a Box.” [Buzz Note: The Envirolet® Works-in-a-Drawer™ Box is an easy to remove electrical box that houses all electrical components.] The unit being so old, could have other issues, if not now, possibly in the future. The unit did not owe us anything. It had done it’s work, extremely well, with no issue’s at all. Father Time.

Petra and I decided that would be the best thing to do. Change the Works in a Box.

So I thought great, once the weekend rush was gone, remember it was Thursday before a long weekend, I could not go pick up the unit so I figured by the following Tuesday or Wednesday, the fix would arrive, all would be well for my wife, a little late, but hey with one day before the weekend, what do you expect!

Petra was very understanding, could feel my anguish and my concerns, suggests to me she would try to get THE BOX to my cottage before the weekend. Yeah right! Its afternoon, Thursday! I was hopping it would happen, Petra sounded confident that it could.

I was expecting a crazy amount for next day delivery.It wasn’t the case. She told me the amount again, NO UP CHARGE, unheard of in todays times. She promised to call me Friday morning.

The next morning,at 8:05 am,I received a call from the courier confirming our cottage address. 15 minutes later Petra called to tell me that she was in contact with the courier, we were going to get the unit that afternoon.

We received the Works in a Box before noon that day. It was not even 24 hrs. Out with the old Box, in with the new. 10 bolts, some caulking, DONE!

Petra called again around 2:00pm to see if we received the unit, I was very thankful as you could imagine and she was very happy for me, for us, that our lady family and friend’s would not have to use that other house, the OUT one!

Our Envirolet worked flawlessly for 15 yrs. When it faulted all I can say is that the customer service in todays day and age that I received was above and beyond my expectations! Petra was very clear and concise in her information and very understanding and compassionate, traits which are sorely missed in todays society of business!

Yes I would absolutely recommend ENVIROLET PRODUCTS and SERVICE to any one looking for COMPOSTING TOILET.

Thank you, best regards,”

Thanks for the comments, Alex. We appreciate it. We are not always able to get items to customers this fast but we always try!

A 15 year lifetime for the fan is pretty good for a moving part that is in such a harsh environment, but is not uncommon. We use quality parts and offer the longest warranty in the industry!

Envirolet in Colorado "Outhouse"

Jerry in sent in a very funny photo of the Envirolet® installed in an “outhouse” in Colorado.

Tipping Outhouse


“Hi, we thought you might enjoy this photo of how we got the toilet into our little outhouse! I think we actually purchased the unit in December, 2004 but we didn’t set it up until this past spring.

When we unpacked it and carried it down to the outhouse, we figured it would go through the door. But when I built the outhouse I only put in a 24” door never expecting to have a toilet this size! So we unbolted the walls from the foundation & tipped the outhouse and put the toilet in. It works!”

Thank you,
Jerry L.

Envirolet in Washington: "We love it."

An Envirolet® in Washington is helping keep the water clean for the clams and oysters!

Thanks to Tom for sending in photos and a testimonial about his Envirolet® Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System (120VAC) installation. A great feature of the Envirolet® Waterless Remote is that it does not require a drain for excess liquids.


“We installed our Envirolet composting toilet in Washington where we’ve built a vacation cabin on an acre of waterfront in a saltwater estuary on the Puget Sound. Since we have some of the best tasting, cleanest clams and oysters in the state on our beach, we want to keep them that way. So we decided on a composting toilet.

It’s been great! The “biffy” stands up to the needs of our family, small groups, and occasional larger parties with no problem. We love it. I’ve enclosed some pictures.

Envirolet in Washington "has worked out terrifically."

Another Envirolet® solving sanitation issues and making life more enjoyable at the cabin! This Envirolet® MS10 Composting Toilet System is in Washington and Nicholas was kind enough to send in some photos and a testimonial.


“Hi! I’ve attached 2 photos of our Envirolet installation in our sleeping cabin.

Testimonial: We built a sleeping cabin on our property for our friends and family who would come to visit. At first, anyone wanting to use the bathroom had to come into our house (often during single digit weather).

Plumbing the cabin the traditional way just wasn’t practical, so we installed an Envirolet toilet and a portable self-contained sink. This has worked out terrifically, and our guests are very pleased…and impressed with our composting toilet.

Sincerely,
Nicholas A.

We have property in the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island and we camp there with our dogs as many weekends as we can April through October. We replaced our “outhouse” with an Envirolet Waterless Remote system three years ago, and roughing it isn’t so rough anymore… it’s been great!

"The Martha's Vineyard Killer" & Her Envirolet Low Water Remote

Cynthia Thanks to Cynthia Riggs, known on Martha’s Vineyard tours as the “The Martha’s Vineyard Killer,” who was kind enough to send us some photos of her Envirolet® Low Water Remote System (Non-Electric) installation on her land-locked 37’ boat.

Killer? That’s right! Cynthia has poisoned, knifed, blown up, shot, or bludgeoned about two dozen people — in her murder mystery novels!

Check our her web site and her books on Amazon.com.


“To Envirolet Buzz:

Small installations? Try a land based wooden boat named Victorious, a 1967 37-foot Egg Harbor sport fisherman that’s going to need years of work before she can put to sea. In the meantime, she’s parked in a pasture on Martha’s Vineyard where she’s being used as an office. The nearest toilet was far away until we installed the Envirolet. No fans, no moving parts, simply flush with water from a container (no water connection on board as yet).”

Photo 2. Interior of Victorious. The bathroom, or “head”, is between the settee and the steps. The head has shower, sink, and toilet in a 4’ x 4’ space. Can’t get much more compact than this.

Envirolet in Vermont: "Thanks for a great product that serves an important need!"

Linda in Vermont sent some wonderful photos of her Envirolet Waterless Remote System installation that solved the sanitation issue at her family cottage this summer. They had a failed septic system that needed replacement so that is where Envirolet came to the rescue.


“Our lake front camp on Lake Champlain was built over 50 years ago, primarily on rock. Re-doing the failed original septic system to current code was not an option. The entire extended family co-ordinated summer vacation schedules to install the Envirolet 120vac Waterless Remote. What had been a serious concern for all (we do enjoy being able to use indoor facilities!), is now solved.

Any and all questions were kindly and knowledgeable answered whenever asked. We are all expecting another 50 years of family good times. Thanks for a great product that serves an important need! We are happy to share our solution with any and all that are interested in listening.”

Envirolet in Virginia: "making 'roughing it' so much easier."

Thanks to Helen in Virginia for sending wonderful photos and comments about her non-electric Envirolet Basic Plus composting toilet system that is installed for use at her cabin.


“Hi,

My husband and I purchased a mountain property with a small 14’ X 16’ cabin in 2004. Our first priority was to get our composting toilet from Envirolet. Being off the grid with no water, we decided to go with the basic non-electric, non-flushing unit, knowing that we could upgrade later if we ever got electricity.

The Toilet arrived in short time and installation was easy. The hardest part was building the outhouse to hold it. We have never experienced an odor problem, and the unit has worked very well for us. We are even considering adding on to the cabin and moving it indoors.

Thanks so much Envirolet for making our ‘roughing it’ so much easier.”

Envirolet in Wisconsin: "The Greatest Toilet"

Thanks to Karl in Wisconsin for sending us an email (subject: “The greatest toilet”) with some awesome comments and photos of his Envirolet Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System.


“Thank you Envirolet for my indoor out-house. I tried using the gas station down the road (9 miles away); tried using the country park (4 miles away which always seemed to be closed for maintenance). Even had a port-a-john with service (clean out cost $70.00 a month, in 2nd week she started to get pretty full). My cabin is only 15’ X 24’ so I wasn’t sure that I wanted to put a bathroom in the cabin - too close for comfort.

So I was looking at different system that are out there but, when I saw the Envirolet waterless system and read other testimonials I thought, I need to give the Envirolet system a try. The system was easily installed within 2 hours and ready for use.

I was a little worried about a big camping week with ten couples. Well I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it for myself or I should say I didn’t smell it at all! The system was a hit.

Karl from Wisconsin

Envirolet MS10 in BC: "What a HUGE difference this made."

big thanks to Nancy in BC for sending us her comments and a wonderful photo of her Envirolet MS10 waterless composting toilet system.

Nancy writes:

“Hi

We replaced our stinky out house toilet (hole in ground) with your waterless Envirolet toilet. What a HUGE difference this made. We no longer have to re-dig a hole when it gets full, nor do we have to walk 100m into the forest to use the toilet due to proximity to the water well. We had the outhouse building moved near our recreational trailer and installed the Envirolet.

There is no odor, disposal of the dry waste is easy, and the seat is comfortable. We plug the toilet in when we arrive for our weekend visits and turn it off when we leave – hassle free. Thank you for developing this environmentally friendly option to the old out house!

We would sure like to have a free jar of compost accelerator for this fabulous picture and testimony of our Envirolet composting, waterless toilet.”

Thanks to Lori for sending in her testimonial and some wonderful photos of her Envirolet Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System in the Muskoka. You will notice that Lori’s waterless toilet is a little different than new systems today because it is about seven years old.


“Hi, here are pictures of the bathroom at our cottage in Muskoka. We are on a steep rock face and the price of a septic system when we bought the place in 1999 was upwards of $15,000.00. The Envirolet Waterless Remote System has been great and is a source of fascination for our friends. Two years ago, we renovated the third bedroom into a bathroom and hauled an antique cast iron claw-foot tub up the hill.

It’s my favourite room in the place!

Norinne in Ontario sent us some great comments and photos about her Envirolet Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System that is installed at her cottage.


“We purchased our waterless remote system when we were building our loft above the garage at our Ontario cottage. We were too far away from the main cottage to use the septic tank and we also wanted to use the loft in the winter months.

Our cottage is not winterized, so when planning the loft we found your waterless system to be the perfect answer. It was installed with the remote system underneath the bathroom in the garage, nicely tucked away. The bathroom looks like a “normal” bathroom, which was our goal.

It was installed easily and works a charm. There is absolutely no odour and the annual cleaning has not been a problem - speaking as a rather squeamish sort!”

Envirolet in Colorado: "Thank you for a great lifestyle product!"

We truly have some great customers! We want to thank Ming in Colorado for taking the time to send us her comments and for creating a wonderful montage of photos to show what she calls her Envirolet Lifestyle!

We’re glad that Ming went with Envirolet after researching all the others out there! Compare for yourself and you will too!

Ming went with an Envirolet DC12 (12v) waterless composting toilet system.


I researched every composting toilet I could find on the web and was certain I wanted the waterless electric Envirolet for our summer property in Colorado. The only thing I may change is to run it off solar panels.

I love everything about our Envirolet. It fits in perfectly with our free-living outdoor lifestyle and our aspiration to be more independent and self-sustaining as well as more earth-friendly.

I could probably write a small book about the virtues of our Envirolet, but mostly I tell anyone who expresses even remote interest in our composting toilet.

It was easy to install and even easier to use. I especially like the fan and think that all toilets should have a fan that pulls the air away from one’s body. It feels so much cleaner than regular flush toilets. Our waterless one is completely odor free. The fan inside the toilet makes so much more sense than having the fan in the room where it is less effective.

I look forward to installing more Envirolet products as we continue to build out our property.

Thank you for a great lifestyle product!

Please see the the photo montage I crafted to show our Envirolet lifestyle.

I would love to get a coupon for Accelerator. I ordered some today anyway since it’s something I need regularly.”

Envirolet WRS in NY: "I can only say that we love it."

Nick & Myra in New York were kind enough to send some wonderful photos and comments about their Envirolet Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System (12VDC) for us to post on Buzz. We’re glad to report that they love their Envirolet! Looks like a great cabin!


“In May of 2007 I installed our Envirolet waterless remote, in our upstate NY hunting camp. I can only say that we love it. I like the fact that we are conserving water and not adding waste to the ground water. Although, as you can see from the photos, I have some sharp bends in the vent pipe, as long as the fans are running there is absolutely no odor.

Thanks Envirolet for a great product!!

Envirolet Basic Plus in Ohio: "Thank you for an outstanding product."

Thanks to Gary in Ohio for sending some nice photos and comments about their Envirolet Basic Plus composting toilet system (waterless non-electric all-in-one). Their Envirolet replaced an aging outhouse.

“Hello,

You were requesting some pictures of our Envirolet. We installed the system with breeze in our cabin in Michigan. We are in the Huron National Forest and getting a septic system was out of the question. We heard of Envirolet on the internet and was ordering the system the next day. We are so please to let you know it definitely comes in handy. We do have an outhouse that is centuries old and now we prefer the Envirolet System. Thank you for an outstanding product. “

Envirolet MS10 in Saskatchewan Cottage

Thanks to Ron for sending in his Envirolet MS10 composting toilet system comments about his Saskatchewan cottage installation.

Ron writes:

“Hi,

We were excited to find one of your MS10 compost toilet to install at our lake cottage. We were hesitant to invest in a septic tank system at our leased lot cottage and had been considering a compost toilet for some time.

Our cottage is small and the semi-detached bathroom about as small as it could possibly be. Installation actually required building a small extension on the bathroom to house the rear part of the MS10 and take the vent pipe outside.

Our next step will likely be considering installation of a turbo fan or wind turbine vent cap. We may consider installing batteries and solar panels to reduce electrical useage when we are not at the cottage.”

Envirolet in Airplane Hangar - "The perfect answer."

An Envirolet waterless self-contained composting toilet provides the needed sanitation solution in an airplane hangar in BC!

Lionel wrote and told us:

“I will get a few more pictures done and send them to you. Obviously, I haven’t bothered getting pictures of the “facility.”

I use this unit in my hangar – most “non-commercial” hangars don’t have “facilities” - the Envirolet is the perfect answer.

Appreciate your time, and of course, quite satisfied with the unit, it does what it’s supposed to do. No disappointments.”

"Your toilet proved to be the best."



Pat and Barry sent us in some great comments about their Envirolet Composting Toilet System.


“We have a cottage on the Pickeral River which is just north of Parry Sound. We do not have electricity and most of the terrain is rocks.

Two years ago we went to a Cottage show and found your company there. We spent the winter thinking about which one we should buy, but your toilet proved to be the best.

It was very simple to install, and we are now into our second season and found that the maintenance is much easier then we thought. The first time we cleaned it out, we put gloves on and held our breath until we realized that everything had turned to a rich compost and there was no odour.

We are part of a club on the Pickeral River and we tell everyone who is considering buying a composting toilet to come and look at ours.

Thanks for making our summer holidays more pleasant and ‘odor free.’”

BUZZ WORD Melanie L. in Montreal sent some great comments to us about her Envirolet waterless composting toilet experience.


“I have been using the Envirolet waterless remote system at my cabin for the past 9 years, and absolutely love your product. It has worked perfectly since the moment we installed it, and I’m glad to know that my cabin is not polluting my lake (unlike some of the leaky septic systems in our area!). I have recommended your products to many of my friends and acquaintances, and as an environmental consultant I hope to promote the use of Envirolets to my future clients. Keep up the good work.”

“Dear Envirolet,

We installed our new Waterless Remote 110v electric system at our summer cottage on a lake in New Hampshire. We have limited construction skills and found it fairly simple to install - the directions were easy to follow.

We chose this system for its significantly lower cost relative to a traditional system and for its environmentally friendly nature at the lake. We had been renting a portable restroom (Porta-Potty) and we are so happy to have indoor facilities. No more fighting mosquitoes!

Thank you for a wonderful product. Attached are three photos.

Envirolet in NC: "Thank you for your good design and proven performance."

Bob sent in some excellent photos and comments about his Envirolet Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System installed in North Carolina!


Envirolet WRS in NC



“Over 10 years ago we hacked our way into the woods and built a small cabin in the hills of North Carolina.

Car topped with the materials on the narrow 2-track road and built the shelter. But with no “building permit,” we had no power nor running water. The wood stove allows year around visitations to the cabin, and we began to notice the discomfort with an outdoor privy. So many years ago (I don’t remember when), we did the research and ordered the “waterless, remote, non-electric” Envirolet System.

The whole thing came by UPS. That was a big plus. And with a bit of large-hole cutting into the floor and into the roof, I was able to install the whole system in just a couple of days of effort. I put as tall a vent stack as I could in order to function in the middle of the woods on a hillside. Winds are variable, and I knew I would need whatever draft I could encourage. In the wintertime, we did learn that our wood stove was an air draft hog which could reverse the normal through-the-system air flow set up by the tall stack. That was solved by cutting a permanent, always open, hole in the floor near the intake of the wood stove. No vent plate needed there. Just an underfloor screen across the hole to discourage varmint intrusion.

The attached photos show the cabin, the vent stack, the underfloor tank, and the inside fixture. We did have one interesting happening. One the underfloor unit, we found the mounted hatch cover partially eaten one time. That was patched with plastic, and it was eaten again. So a new hatch cover was made from ABS plastic sheeting I happened to have and it has remained intact. As best we can figure, the culprit was a squirrel. And we have no clue as to what the motive was.

We are pleased with our system, and it makes the rustic cabin much more civil during cold or wet weather. In fact, soon we will be moving full time to the cabin with confidence in our existing infrastructure as we prepare another site on the land for a new retirement residence. Thank you for your good design and proven performance.

We hope you can use the attached photos with their descriptive titles along with the above testimonial.

We will be making an order for some maintenance materials including the 2-stage pre-sediment filter kit and probably a new filter tray. We look forward to getting a Premix starter kit from this special.”

Envirolet DC12 Helps Couple Live a Sustainable Life in Wisconsin

Do we ever have great customers! A big thanks to Rob & Denise of Wisconsin for sending in photos and a testimonial about their Envirolet DC12 composting toilet system! The Envirolet DC12 is waterless and 12v.


“Hello,

My wife Denise and I made a life changing leap from the city to a sustainable community farm this Spring. Our new companion in this adventure, our Envirolet Self-Contained Waterless 12v system was about the first of our possession to be delivered to the farm lasts December. (See Photo 1, with Denise and friend Mark celebrating the Envirolet arrival).

Now we have moved in to our mobile trailer “mansion” and our Envirolet fit the mini-bathroom with a quarter inch to spare! (Photo 2 - Installation). If we work our grey water system out, our Envirolet gives us the option to forgo a septic system expense.

In the move we miss-placed the Premixed Starter Kit and Compost Accelerator. I got some old Envirolet Accelerator from a friend (and another satisfied owner), but it may be a few years old. Does this stuff have a limited shelf life??<br />
Between all the chores and just finding our place in the great countryside of Wisconsin we may not have much time check in with the “Buzz”, wish us luck.

If you use our little testimonial we would appreciate receiving the free Premix Starter Kit - Thanks!”

Best regards,

Rob, Denise & Tweed (Photo 3 - at Home)

“We installed our Envirolet last spring. It had to sit in the box over one summer because we weren’t ready to install it. But it’s in now.

I cannot believe how incredibly easy the installation was! Just, take it out of the box, plug it in and, literally, “Go!” to your heart’s content.

Worked great all last summer and emptying it was a breeze.

"We love our unit." - Envirolet in Wisconsin

Thanks to Mary & Terry for sending in her testimonial and photos of her Envirolet composting toilet system installed in an outhouse at their cabin in Wisconsin.


“I finally have photos of our outhouse. Trust me…nothing fancy. I have included a photo of our cabin, its view, and 2 photos of the outhouse. It is not finished inside because my husband has a drywall business and it does not pay to drywall your own buildings :).

I have had some women’s retreat groups at the cabin. Some were hesitant to come when I mentioned the word “outhouse”, but after they saw the toilet….they were impressed with the functionality and – NO SMELL.

We love our unit. We are going to actually add on a room to our cabin and add another Envirolet to our “Estate.”

Thank you for the great and friendly service. Your products are wonderful. The TP [Buzz: buy it here] disintegrates so quickly, it is amazing!”

Envirolet in Roman Bath House in UK, Part 1

John with the Welwyn Hatfield Museum Service in Welwyn, England was kind enough to send us some many great photos of their Envirolet Waterless Remote Composting Toilet Systems (in the UK) being installed.

The Envirolet Systems are in the Welwyn Roman Bathhouse.

More about the Baths:

Tunnel through time to the world of the Romans - with a visit to Welwyn Roman Baths.

Sadly, you can’t take a hot bath any more. The boiler went out about 1,800 years ago when the Romans left! But you can see some fascinating remains which have survived from their time. Learn about how the Romans liked to relax with an elegant culture of bathing, and admire their creativity and style.

The bath house remains are a scheduled ancient monument, ingeniously preserved in an steel vault under the A1(M) motorway. Once part of a fine villa, the layout of the cold, warm and hot rooms and the heating system are remarkably preserved.

Also on display are archaeological finds from the Welwyn area and an exhibition devoted to the history of the site, which was uncovered during the 1960s and 70s by the Welwyn Archaeological Society.

"Since April 2005 we have owned the 110 Waterless Remote and couldn't be happier."

Heather in Pennsylvania sent us in some photos and great comments about the Envirolet Waterless Remote Composting Toilet System installed at the family cottage.


“Our cottage has been in our family since 1917 (due to flooding, we are actually in our fourth cottage on this site). The outhouse was the only thing that never changed until lost to the last flood. Since then, there have been new regulations in our area, including no new sewer or septic (including outhouses).

My dad actually did the research that discovered the Envirolet toilet. Since April 2005 we have owned the 110 Waterless Remote and couldn’t be happier. We were familiar with this “technology” from local tourist sites that are also in green areas and use composting toilets.

Specific to Envirolet, both pre- and post-purchase service reps are excellent and very helpful. The system works great without any noticeable odor. It is easy to keep clean in the bathroom and easy to clean out in the spring. Aesthetically, the choices are great for any decor. Environmentally, we can feel part of the solution with its use. It’s all good! Thanks so much.”

“Hello,

Attached are a few pictures of our low water Envirolet system. This is our 5th season with the system and we couldn’t be any happier with it. Our camp is situated on ledge so a septic system was going to cost a fortune and look ugly. When we first purchase the system we weren’t sure how good it was going to be?? Let me tell you it works exactly the way it advertised. On several occasions I had questions about the system and the customer service was outstanding.

The Envirolet low water system is a quality product and has customer service & technical support that you are sure to appreciate.

Selected Envirolet Over the Competitors; Happy with Decision

Envirolet Recommened by Envirolet User


Thanks to Nick in Ontario (on Lake Superior near Sault Ste. Marie) for sending in his comments and great photos of his Envirolet MS10 installation.


“We purchased and installed our Envirolet Multi System 10/3 (110 volts & 3” vent) in July 2002. It’s been a welcome addition to our cottage. Since we purchased the cottage in 1990, we’ve had hot and cold running water and indoor plumbing; but no indoor toilet. (No septic system.) Two considerations prompted us to purchase the Envirolet over the competitor’s toilet:

1. A recommendation from another user, and

2. Space restrictions - it fit perfectly between our tub and vanity.

I clean out the Envirolet toilet each winter and begin each spring with a fresh “starter kit.”

The only problem we’ve had with the toilet is a failed exhaust fan. I replaced it with one that I received free, covered under the 4-year warranty. Failure of the fan was partially my fault. When I installed the vent pipe, the outside portion was insulated but I did not insulate the pipe in the cottage or the attic. Cold weather caused condensation of moisture inside the pipe. The condensation ran down the pipe and directly onto the fan. I now have the whole vent pipe well insulated.*

All in all, we’re happy with the toilet. Although we’ve never tried the competitors, I can’t imagine it being better in any way.”

Nick P.
Ontario

envirolet_MS10_SSM_06.JPG

envirolet_MS10_SSM_07.JPG


* This is an uncommon problem, but can occur as it did in Nick’s case, if you have condensation running down your vent pipe. It is always recommended to add insulation to your venting.

48 Years of Outhouse Trips Now Over!

“We absolutely love the system”

Dennis sent great comments about his Envirolet MS10 composting toilet system installed at his camp in Maine. Envirolet has saved them from anymore trips to the outhouse!


“Dear Envirolet,

Here is a picture of the installation I did at our cottage two years ago. I had very little room for a toilet and as you can see; your unit fit the situation to a “T”.

For 48 years we ran to an outhouse no matter what time of year we were at the camp, but not anymore. We absolutely love the system, especially the ladies. It’s easy to maintain even in the small space I had to put it. It saved us thousands of dollars that would have been needed for a flush type toilet with a pumping station, tank, & filter bed.

Your product is the best and I’ve told numerous other people about it. It certainly beats having to run to an outhouse and the lack of odor is a big plus!

Keep up the good work.”

Happy Buyers at Cottage Life Show

We love hearing feedback. We especially love hearing it so soon! Richard and Judy attended the Spring Cottage Life Show (previous post) this past weekend and ended up taking home a new Envirolet MS10 composting toilet system (go to envirolet.ca in Canada)! And, I was lucky enough to be the one who was able to help them out at the show.


“Just a short note to say how pleased we were in our visit and search at the Cottage Life Show on Friday and to Scott Smith for the professional care and attention he gave us regarding information on the Envirolet systems – namely the MS10 unit.

Our intentions were to thoroughly investigate the different products at the show, do our comparisons and perhaps decide on a purchase. After reviewing and comparing products and companies, we felt very comfortable about buying an Envirolet system from Scott. We appreciate Scott looking after our questions and needs. We will certainly recommend Scott and your company to others. We look forward to hearing from you in the next few days regarding available time for pickup. Thank you.”

Envirolet Obvious Choice vs. $12,000 Septic System

Customer Saves $12,000 with Envirolet!

Mike in Ohio sent some nice comments and a photo to Buzz of his Envirolet DC12 (12v) composting toilet system. With an Envirolet, Mike was able to avoid the $12,000 price tag for a new septic tank system at his cottage.


“Our choice was either a $12,000 septic system at our cottage or a composting toilet. The composting toilet won hands down. I was skeptical at first with this type of system, but the great people at Envirolet helped me with every one of them. The toilet in now enclosed in the 6’ x 6’ room and as advertised there is no smell and it works flawlessly.

Thanks a million (or $12,000).”

Thank you

Envirolet User Helping to Spread the Buzz

BUZZ WORD Sheila, an Envirolet compost toilet user in Alberta, sent us a letter about her friend in New Zealand that she wanted us to share. Sheila has been able to convince her friend to come to the green side and make a difference!


“Hello again Scott,
A friend sent me this YouTube video. She is finally becoming aware of climate change. I again sent her your site address, as she just did not “get it” before - now that people are becoming aware that water will be a premium, they may start thinking ahead and get one of the toilets. Anyway - the more people that notice and think, is good.”

Sheila - your fan!

Envirolet Saving Water in Oregon

“To say we are happy is the understatement of the century!”

Gail and family sent some very nice comments about their Envirolet composting toilet system installed in Oregon. Photos are coming!


“Aloha! We recently purchased an Envirolet from you folks for our kids apartment and our shop. After living in Hawai’i where water is at a premium we moved to Oregon where we continue our conservation efforts and installed our first Envirolet. To say we are happy is the understatement of the century! Our daughter in law was hesitant at first and now after using her Envirolet for a few weeks swears she will never go back to a traditional toilet. “They waste so much water and are such a pain to clean!”

My husband and I will never build a home without using Envirolet technology again. From your prompt delivery to outstanding setup directions and superb product line you are truly a “one stop shop.” We are in the process of getting some digital photos to send (we aren’t done with the rest of the bathroom yet and want to wait till the walls are done!). In the meantime I wanted to say thanks so much for such a great all around product that fits so well with our ecological mindset.”

Envirolet Operates Odor-Free in Minnesota

Dale in Minnesota sent some nice photos and comments about his Envirolet MS10 composting toilet system.

“Hello

I have enclosed two pictures of my Envirolet installed system, we are very happy with the operation of the system. It was very easy to install and was up and running in know time at a much lower cost than your typical sewage system.

There have been no problems. There is absolutely no odor which is very nice compared to our outhouse.”

Envirolet Provides Green Sanitation Solution for Church

Steve in Wisconsin sent us a couple nice shots of the Envirolet MS10 composting toilet system installed in their community church. We’re glad Envirolet is providing a green sanitation solution for them!

“Dear sirs;

Here are a couple of pix of our little church and the room we added inside for the Envirolet. We are a small group of mostly older folks and all feel real good about using indoor facilities instead of the “out-house”. The installation went well. Our lack of water and sewer presented quite a problem providing for needed conveniences. We thank you for your help in choosing the right unit. We can now plan on a small picnic area on the south side of the church this spring!!

Thank you again.”

Cindy in Maine sends us this photo and some very nice comments about her two Envirolet composting toilet systems.

“We bought our first Envirolet composting toilet 2 years ago and used it with our camper on our property in Maine while we were building our house. We decided to put a low water unit in our house instead of a septic system.

The composting unit is outside the house in a small shed. The toilet inside looks and works great. You have a wonderful product and customer service that can’t be beat.”

Escape Artist Loves His Envirolet

Escape Artist Great Norman Bigelow sent us a great letter (by mail) about how happy he is with our company (especially Anna!) and his Envirolet MS10 composting toilet (purchased in 2003).

Bigelow was known for many acts including Trial by Fire, Straitjacket Escape and The Doors of Death.

“Although he is now retired, Norm Bigelow performed for years as one of America’s leading escape artists. His unique style was avant garde and revolutionary, breathing fresh life into a field that was worn out from its Vaudeville heyday.”
From Escapologist.net.

The letter reads:

“Dear Anna,

Here is the letter I promised. You and everyone at Sancor Industries are wonderful to deal with and many in business could learn from you.

Anna you should consider a college lecture tour, speaking on public relations. College students would love you. Also you would make a great deal of money and spread the product name all over the country.

Thank you all for the great service and product.”

Envirolet is "easy to empty and keeps any contaminants from entering any water supply."

Tom and Lois in Arkansas sent us some awesome comments about their Envirolet composting toilet system.

“I took a couple of shots and now can’t find my cable to connect my camera to the computer. As soon as I do I’ll send them along.

I love my Envirolet. Since we respect and enjoy the environment here in the Ozarks this protects and enhances.

It’s easy to empty and keeps any contaminants from entering any water supply. We are surrounded by creek so we didn’t want anything like field lines that might seep into the limestone fishers and get into the water.

This is one of the few pristine areas left and we intend to keep it that way.”

"The design and mechanical workings of your system surpass others that we considered."

Paul in Washington state sent Buzz a great photo of his Envirolet MS10 composting toilet system installation along with his testimonial.


“Dear Envirolet,

We live in Northeast Washington state. The septic system in our cabin was reaching the end of its usefulness and something needed to be done.

After careful investigation of all the various systems on the market, I (being a retired Manufacturing Engineer) had no problem choosing Envirolet. The design and mechanical workings of your system surpass others that we considered. The west has been in a drought for quite some time so going “waterless” was certainly a plus.

envirolet_MS10_WA_001.jpg


Your system was far less expensive and more eco-friendly than installing a new septic system. The installation was very easy and was completed by myself in only one day. One of the concerns my wife had was the noise level of the fans. Not an issue. It is no louder than our humidifier.

Very impressive. I’m sure we will be very pleased for many years to come.”

Thanks,

Happy BC Customer with 7 Year Old Low Water System

Thanks to Dorothy R. in Grand Forks, BC who sent us some wonderful photos and comments about her 7 year old Envirolet Low Water Remote System. The system is installed in her Spokane, WA cabin.


“We have had our Envirolet for about seven years now.

This is the little house we built for around the cooker part of our toilet.

Envirolet Low Water System

Envirolet Low Water System


We are nine miles into the bush so having a septic dug was not an alternative. We have a cabin in the Spokane/Deer Park area, so we tried to keep as green as we could get without giving up comfort of our own toilet.

Below is the toilet installed in our bathroom, and the little guy next to it is at our functioning urinal. We are conserving water with the urinal as well as with the low water Envirolet we have.

This was the best decision we could have possibly made for our needs. We have had one close neighbour (also a Canadian) who purchased one also, and they too are happy. We have had much interest in our toilet as septic is a bit of an expensive option for our location.

Thanks Envirolet.”

Envirolet Basic Plus (Non-Electric) in Michigan

James M. in northern Michigan sent a testimonial and a couple of photos about his Envirolet Basic Plus composting toilet system installation.

“Hello,

We are very pleased with our Envirolet toilet. There are no noticeable odors and it works in our remote location. We have vacant land in northern Michigan and required some type of an outhouse as there are no water or power facilities. After researching your waterless non-electric product we realized that we could conserve our environment and still have the basic necessities we require. We decided to convert a hunting blind into a composting outhouse. The conversion was easy, just cut a vent hole and install. We look forward to many years of use and highly recommend your product for other ‘remote’ applications.”

Thanks again,
Jim M.

Bayfield Builders Outhouse Update

A quick update about an Envirolet® installation we reported on about a year ago. This installation features an Envirolet® Waterless Remote System in an “outhouse.” A very nice looking outhouse!

Ted from Bayfield Builders posted on Greenthinkers:

“I built this outhouse two years ago and it is still working great for the client. I never knew that there was such a market for these composting units till I put the pictures of it on the internet. Since then I have received many emails from people who either want them build for them, or who just have questions in general about how to build outhouses. I have received so many emails wanting to know dimensions that I have drawn up some make shift blue prints that I send to people who want to build their own. If anyone wants these prints or has questions in general, I would be happy to help.”

Adding an Envirolet® to an out-building like this is a great idea if you have limited space or want a bathroom for guests or in multi-cottage locations.

Contact Ted at Bayfield Builders for questions, ideas and help.

Envirolet the Tundra Toilet in Alaska

Envirolet® Composting Toilet Systems installed in Alaska were discussed on NPR Radio’s Insight on KXJZ 90.9 in Sacramento, CA on December 18. Read about it here:

Tundra Toilet
Tundra toilet
“Proper human waste disposal is a challenge in the tundra, where temperatures dip to 30 below. Today on Insight, a local student tells you how a remarkable $2,000 dollar toilet she has worked on has come to the rescue. Simone Sebalo is a part time Master’s student in Environmental Engineering. The compost toilet project is her Master’s thesis project.”

Via Insight/NPR.

This helps to further illustrate the effectiveness of an Envirolet® Waterless Composting Toilet System in cold climate installations. We’ll have more on this project in future Buzz posts.

"Your composting system saved the day."

Frank & Joyce sent some photos of their Envirolet® Waterless Remote System (in Canada go here) in their beautiful blue BC cottage!

“A little history of our property. I purchased it 28 years ago with 3 partners and bought them out in 2004. It’s located at Osprey Lake between Princeton & Peachland BC. Our cabin is at 1130m. We cleared property and then built. We are on low land so we built on concrete pillars and did not qualify for a septic system.

We searched the net and found SANCOR ENVIROLET waterless remote system. Your composting system saved the day, also it was good to know it was environmentally friendly.

Had to dig in the composting system below the house so poured a concrete base and concrete block walls below grade and also installed a drain system in the slab since I was concerned about rain and snow melting I closed it in. It is a great recreation area about 150 meters from the Kettle Valley Railway, which gives us lots of access to the mountains and 6 lakes in the area.

You can use our story and pictures if you like.”

"We have been EXTREMELY pleased with our Envirolet system!"

Some happy customers in Texas sent us some wonderful comments and photos of their Envirolet® MS10 composting toilet system installation.


“Dear Buzz ~

Two years ago we purchased a small cabin on Possum Kingdom Lake in North Texas. It doesn’t have any running water, but we figured we had been campers all our lives, so we didn’t really have a problem venturing out into the woods - even late at night or in the COLD of winter! Well, after a year of pitch dark, sometimes freezing cold nights trying to find “our spots” in the woods, and in the interest of safety (we do hear coyotes and we have seen rattlesnakes) and overall environmental concerns and hygiene, we decided it was time to step up to an indoor “throne”!

After months of searching the Internet, and debating with ourselves if we were willing to go the $10K route of installing a septic system, or if we even wanted consider building an outhouse (yes, we found plans for building several different styles of outhouses!), we found your product! We were VERY impressed (although somewhat skeptical about the smell, since it would be in the one large closet in the house), and we decided to purchase ourselves a much needed Christmas gift! Now we sit back and laugh at that first year wondering “What were we thinking?!?!?”

We have been EXTREMELY pleased with our Envirolet system! It was VERY easy to install (although my husband did bend a few blades on his reciprocating saw trying to cut the perfect hole in our A-Frame roof). And we’ve had more friends willing to come visit us at the lake now that they don’t have to “go in the woods”! And now we joke about how the “closet” is the best smelling room in the house!

Thank you for helping us “come in out of the cold” and giving our little piece of paradise a much needed upgrade.”

K. & C. C.

“Hello my name is Ron B.

We built our cabin in Maine ten years ago we didn’t have water so we checked out waterless toilet systems. Envirolet seemed to be just what we wanted. We went with the 12 volt system and have been totally satisfied with it.

Your suggestion as to what to do with the compost after cleaning has made our small garden thrive. We now have electricity and have been thinking of up grading to the 110 volt works in a drawer. I want to thank you for making a great system. Hope you like the photos.”

" I never thought that I would be bragging about a toilet!"

Bonnie in Minnesota sent us a nice photo of the Envirolet® Basic Plus they have installed at her church. The Envirolet® Basic Plus is a non-electric composting toilet system.

“To Whom it may concern,

My name is Bonnie. I am writing to tell you that our church we raised money for buying on of you non-electric composting toilets. I have to say that it was the Best thing that we have done. We were renting a port-a-potty. And the smell was just awful, and it was emptied every other week. And the smell was still awful! Since we have bought the composting toliet, it has really blessed us. We no longer have to spend lots of money renting a toilet. And there is NO SMELL with our toilet now. I never thought that I would be bragging about a toilet! But this one deserves all the bragging. I am so amazed at it, having no smell.

envirolet_basic_plus_MN-400.jpg


Our church is not a church building church, we hold church in a pole shed made into a church. And it was so nice not having to worry about having electricity hooked up to it, and not needing water. The shed it is in is a shed that was bought at a hardware store! How much simpler can it get. I am proud to say that Envirolet has made a wonderful toilet. I would recommend your company to anyone.

Thank you soooooo much for all you do. Keep on making those wonderful toilets.

God Bless each one of you.”

"I really like the convenience of having a restroom indoors..."

RJ in Vermont sent some wonderful photos and comments about his Envirolet® Basic Plus System (waterless, non-electric) installed in his Vermont cabin. Looks like a greaty set-up!


“Dear Envirolet,

I built a new hunting cabin last year and after looking at all of my options for toilet facilities, I purchased and installed an Envirolet Basic Plus composting toilet. I do have electricity, but decided to go with the non-electric version because I leave the cabin unattended for weeks at a time. There is usually only 2 of us that go there and sometimes 3. I added a 4” step up platform so that the seat height is the same as my home toilet for my shorter legged guests.

After having it for the last year, I really like the convenience of having a restroom indoors, especially during the cold winter months. I attached a few pics of my Envirolet installation and a pic of my cabin.

Thanks for a great product!

"All of our neighbours think it's great and are using us as the guinea pig..."

Brian in Alberta was kind enough to send some comments and photos of his great Envirolet® Waterless Remote System installation.


“Hi,

We have a lake cottage on Skeleton Lake in Northern Alberta. Our summer village council recently passed a by-law prohibiting outhouses so we had to find an alternative for our beloved privy. I did some research on composting toilets and decided to purchase an Envirolet 12 volt waterless composting toilet. We have a valley on one side of our property and I decided to dig out a spot for the composter and build a building above it for the toilet - sort of like a walk out basement concept.

From our cottage you walk in the front of the toilet building and you wouldn’t even know the lower storey (basement) is there. From the back side you can see the two stories. For the lower level we just dug out the hill, put down cement sidewalk blocks for a floor and built three walls out of pressure treated 4x6 landscaping timbers. We then built a door on the lower level so we could access the composter.

The upper level is stick-framed and we put down linoleum flooring, installed a 12 volt light for night time use and fans to blow cool air in on hot days and put panelling on the walls. We have a cabinet to hold tp etc., and keep a bottle of hand sanitizer on top of it for waterless washing up. For a ceiling we used corrugated clear fibreglass roofing (Filon). We installed two 10 amp solar panels inside the building under the clear roof and framed them in so you don’t even see the solar panels. The ‘basement’ houses the 12 volt battery. Building the structure and landscaping around it was done over the course of 8 weekends in the summer. Installing the composter and toilet only took a couple of hours.

We’re extremely happy with it and can’t believe how odourless it is. All of our neighbours think it’s great and are using us as the guinea pig to test it out for a season before they buy one.

Here’s some pictures of our new deluxe outhouse.”

"We love our Envirolet installation!"

A big thanks to carol & Sid for sending in their comments and photos. They have an Envirolet® MS10 installed in their beautiful cabin in Wisconsin.

“Greetings,

We are building our little stone cabin in the woods of Wisconsin this year, and we love our Envirolet installation!

Building codes required us to have a large conventional septic system built, but we chose to put in the Envirolet anyway, and we are very happy with our choice.

The extra white PVC pipe* coming in at a diagonal from the floor in the photo is a sewer gas outlet for the gray water from the system, although we may not have needed it. All that goes down the drain into the septic tank and drain field is shower and sink water. The best use of the septic mound construction has been the garden space it provides where we have some beautiful wild flowers in bloom this summer!

We emptied our Envirolet for the first time last week, after 4 months of continuous residential use by 2 people, and it went relatively smoothly. The compost that fell into the tray was nice and dry and pleasant smelling for dumping out in the compost pile.

Thank you and best wishes to everyone,”

"I could not be happier with my new toilet."

“I have been interested in owning a Envirolet Composting toilet since I was 17 …”

Emily in Minnesota shows us persistence pays off. She sent us some great shots of her Envirolet® Composting Toilet. She also sent some of the kindest words we have ever received.


“Hello!

I have been interested in owning a Envirolet Composting toilet since I was 17 and saw the ad in the back of Mother Earth News. I begged my mom but never succeeded in getting her to purchase one.

Finally at 27 I am a proud owner of my very own Envirolet. I live in a small camper trailor on an organic farm in Minnesota. I did not want to stink up my living quarters by using the toilet inside. I was surfing the net and found a website called “Twin Cities Free Market”, folks post stuff they do not want in hopes that someone will come and pick it up. Everything posted is free! A wonderful woman, posted an Envirolet and she chose me to be the new owner! She said she received 57 emails in response to her post. She loved her envirolet but, was moving to Mexico and could not transport it with her.

I could not be happier with my new toilet. I put it behind the trailor and every morning put on my rubber boots and house coat and admire my surroundings while using the Envirolet. I installed a gravity water system next to it so, I have everything but a shower at my trailor.

Thanks for the wonderful design! I will have it until I move to Mexico!”

Sincerely,
Emily S.

Envirolet Basic Plus in Garage

Sheila and Peter in Alberta kindly sent in a bunch of nice photos and comments about their Envirolet® Basic Plus system installation.

“Our Envirolet Story”

“We got our Envirolet toilet for the garage - my husband does a lot of wood working out there and then comes into the house all dusty and dirty. So that has changed and we are both happy. And the neighbours can not smell anything!

Also, with the climate changing, I wanted to be able to “go” in comfort, should there be a water shortage - similar to the one in Tofino B.C. this summer!

We wallpapered with left over wall paper and made it all cosy! Flashlight in case of power outage - even though it is wired for electricity.”

"We love this toilet and wish we had one in our full time home."

Marcia in Virginia sent us a really terrific testimonial and pair of photos of her Envirolet® Waterless Remote System cabin installation.

“Dear Buzz,

Here are 2 pictures of our composting toilet you can use. We love this toilet and wish we had one in our full time home. This one was installed in our country cabin several years ago. It uses no water. It has never smelled and we have never had any problems with flies or any other insects. Since we only go to the cabin on weekends—and not every weekend at that—we have only had to empty it once so far. It was a piece of cake!

So, there’s our heart-felt testimonial.

Thanks!”

Saved Almost $30,000!

No more septic!

Dave in Arizona sent us a nice photo of his Envirolet® Waterless Remote System installed in his log home. he also sent us some comments about how the alternative was a septic system that would have cost upwards of $30,000! Compare that to the highest priced Envirolet® System, which goes for less than $2000.

“Buzz:

Attached are a couple photos of our beautiful log home with an Envirolet toilet. We are close to creeks with hard clay so needed an alternate septic. Most folks in our are pay $30K for one, we of course did not. Plus we are in a very water short area so we reuse our gray water to water plants. Thank you.”

Ronald B. in Virgina sent us a couple of great shots and comments about his Envirolet® Waterless Remote System installation in Virginia.


“We recently purchased 66 acres in the mountains of southwestern Virginia along the Blue Ridge Parkway. This property had a small cabin that was constructed from straw bales covered with stucco. No well or septic tank.

My wife would not agree to spend the night in our cabin until we had a toilet.

We purchased an Envirolet remote system. We constructed a deck and added a room for the toilet. Now we can enjoy our cabin and watch the deer graze in the clearing around the cabin.”

Texas Pool House with Envirolet

Jim & Cheryl answered the Buzz call for pool cabana installation photos and sent in some photos and comments about their Envirolet® Waterless Remote System that is installed in their pool house in Central Texas.

“Three years ago, we built the most beautiful and natural swimming pool in Central Texas. This has been confirmed by a fully biased poll of our family.

However, one problem existed. It was too far from a restroom facility. Miss Cheryl said, ‘I need something closer than the other side of the house.’ So, we went through the decision making process of what to do. Suggestions went from a shed to a full size pool house tailored along the lines of the Big House. Finally we decided on a Park Home. We had already decided that we would get a composting toilet vs. a septic tank. (We have a lot of rocks.)

When the trailer home was delivered two years ago, we discovered we had room for a remote unit under the pool house. With the help of two friends (one of whom thank goodness had technical know-how) and four hours, we installed the Enviorlet toilet and rerouted the other water to provide greywater on the grounds. It has been great for surges when the cousins came for a couple of days and five of them stayed in the pool house and when youngest son stayed a month before heading off to grad school. Now it stands ready as pool house, dog house (for me), and second bedroom for drop in visitors.

Great product!

We’re not sure why you waited so long! We’re just glad you went with the more environment-friendly composting toilet alternative (versus a propane incinerating type!).

Small is Good
We get many comments from users about how their Envirolet® was able to fit in a small space. Envirolet® is significantly smaller than many other composting toilet systems available on the market. The patented Envirolet® Automatic Six-Way Aeration™ allows Envirolet® to compost faster, thus requiring a smaller size system.

The installation took less then a day and was very easy.

In November of last year I broke my leg. Needless to say this restricted me. Our “outhouse” is 50 yards from our cabin and I could not hobble that far in the snow. We would have not been able to use our cabin in the winter if not for our new toilet.”

Envirolet® Saves User from Bears & Mountain Lions

Thanks to Jim in Colorado for sending us his incredible photos and comments about his Envirolet MS10 Composting Toilet System. We’re very glad that his Envirolet has saved him from the threat of bears and mountain lions!


“My Envirolet “ROCKS.” There is nothing better than my Envirolet composting toilet, when I’m deep in the mountains, 150 yards from the outhouse with 2 feet of snow on the ground and the wood stove is blazing inside my mountain cabin.

Before my Envirolet, I would have to make that 150 yard trip during the middle of the night, not knowing if I would encounter one or more of our many bears and mountain lions. Now I just cozy up on my fantastic Envirolet Composter. I actually thought of moving back to civilization until I purchased my Envirolet and now I’m here to stay.
Thanks again Envirolet for my wonderful composting toilet.”

Envirolet with a gazebo on top!

Here’s a quick follow-up to a previous post about Debbie in Virginia.

I emailed Debbie to thank her for sending her photos and she replied with another great photo. This one is of her unique cabin that is still being built.

“Scott, thanks - I enjoy looking through the web site and seeing what others are doing. I’ll attach another photo to this just for giggles… in it you can see our cabin in progress, and the 8’ X 8’ side addition for the bathroom. I bet I’ve got the only Envirolet that has a gazebo on top! We ran the vent pipe up to the top of the gazebo so it draws really well.”

Click on the photo or here for a larger view. Then look on the right hand side of the gazebo and you should be able to see the vent pipe (white) for Debbie’s Envirolet® MS10.

"The toilet has done great in spite of the cold winter temperatures."

Debbie sent us a great photo of her “beary beautiful” (she came up with that - click on the photo for a larger view to see why it’s “beary!”) bathroom in Virginia. Her Envirolet® MS10 in green granite (wsith Oak Seat) looks awesome too!

“I would love to share the bathroom we’ve been working on at our tiny cabin in the VA mountains. We bought the Envirolet composting toilet last fall and installed it in an unfinished room.

The rest of the cabin is unfinished, but this winter we did some work on the bathroom because I’m just so pleased to have it! The toilet has done great in spite of the cold winter temperatures, there’s been no odor, and it sure has beat the heck out of trying to put in a septic system. Since we have no running water the current “bathtub” is just a big plastic storage bin… whatever works, you know?

Others that live in the area have been watching our progress and are fascinated with the concept of a composting toilet - a couple of them may be contacting you one day to buy their own.”

"They are certainly less hassle than any other sort of boat toilet."

Alan T. in the UK, who has an Envirolet® composting toilet system on his narrowboat, wrote to the extraordinary narrowboat blog site Granny Buttons about his system.

“We have had an Envirolet composting toilet for almost two years and are very happy with it. They are certainly less hassle than any other sort of boat toilet.

We don’t live on our boat but we do use it for several weeks and lots of weekends each year. We haven’t had to empty it yet although we may need to fairly soon.

They are quite large and would be difficult to retrofit in many boats. The fan runs all the time and can be a bit irritating sometimes.

I bought the toilet direct from Envirolet in Canada. I fitted it myself, very simple, just cut a hole in the roof and provide power.

“The fan has two settings; it is turned down at night but it’s still a bit noisy, though to be fair this is partly my fault. It should have a wind turbine thing on top of the flue outside, it’s quieter with this on, for some reason.”


This helps explain any fan noise he has!:

“But I misjudged the height of a tunnel last summer and knocked the thing off into the canal. Not got round to replacing it yet.”

Great comments, Alan. But, watch out for those tunnels!

Seriously though, when Alan hit the tunnel and lost his wind turbine, he may have agitated the entire vent pipe from the force of the hit. This could have broken some of the silicone seal and could be causing a rattling in the vent, hence the noise. Alan needs to check the vent line and re-caulk.

He is also correct when he says the fans seem quieter when the turbine is connected. The fans on a system are normally pretty quiet. Another reason for a noisy fan can be if something (like a twig) is caught in it. Most fan issues can be easily remedied. If the issue continues, he should contact us to discuss further and replace the fans (under warranty) if required.

“Hello,

My wife and I purchased some property in somewhat of a remote area. Originally it did not have water or electricity, just a shed. The owner before us installed a waterless composting toilet. It was one of the selling features that we put a lot of weight on. Since purchasing the property (about 6 months ago) we have gained more appreciation for the system and learned most of our information on use and care from your web sight. So far it is working out great. Here is a few photos of our system.”

"The Envirolet has been easy, effortless, odourless, very low maintenance and best of all has saved $10,000."

Dan in Quebec sent us some photos of his cottage and some awesome comments today about his Envirolet® Low Water Remote System.

“Hello,

Two years ago I bought a cottage that had an Envirolet composting toilet. As much as I love the great outdoors I do enjoy the comforts of home. Even before the deal closed I was planning on having a conventional septic system installed.

A reputable contractor estimated the job at $10,000, however it took a month or so after moving in to get the estimate. In that time I was using the Envirolet, a low water flow system with tank below the guest cabin shown in the picture. Quite simply I was amazed how the months slipped by without another thought to scheduling the contractor.

Day to day the Envirolet is identical to my city toilet. I had anticipated all sorts of worst case scenarios and none of them transpired. The Envirolet has been easy, effortless, odourless, very low maintenance and best of all has saved $10,000. I also enjoy the bragging rights that come along with doing what is best for the environment.”


Sincerely,
Dan W.

An Envirolet® allowed Dan to have the comforts of home while helping the environment! Also, $10,000 for a septic system is actually a pretty good price. It can often be much much more than that!

You will note that Dan bought a cottage with an Envirolet® already in it. This is fairly common. If you buy a property with an Envirolet® already installed, it’s a good idea to contact us for some basic operating tips and to answer any questions you might have about your pre-loved toilet system.

"The King" Narrowboat & Envirolet, Part 2

The King's Crown As promised, here is more about the Envirolet® installation on “The King,” the 100 year old narrowboat. We wrote about it a few days ago on Buzz here.

Here is what Graham wrote recently about his Envirolet® on Granny Buttons, a great narrowboat blog:

“Sue & I own the FMC ex Steamer “The King” - 72’ rivetted iron hull built launched in April 1905. She is from the same fleet as “The President”, but 4 years older.

When we purchased the boat in November 2004 it needed to have a complete interior/exterior refurbishment and upgrading etc., which involved 6 months in dry & wet dock. As part of the internal work we had an Envirolet Composting Toilet fitted, which was supplied by Wilton Marina chandlery. At the time, as far as the chandlers knew, there was only one - possibly two - other boats on the canals with such a system.

At-Anderton-Lift_mod_400w.jpg


Previously we had always had “pump out” systems, but had become concerned about (i) the ever rising costs of a pump out and (ii) the effect on the environment.

Because the internal refit work involved moving bulkheads around we were able to provide enough space for the toilet to have a room “across the boat” of its own. It is quite large and takes up quite a bit of space, therefore it would not be suitable for craft where the existing bathroom space is limited. Also there is a “breather” pipe that goes from the back of the toilet and up through the roof of the boat.

Initially we were a bit worried about if or how it would “work”. After 2 years, I can honestly say that it’s a piece of cake (pardon the pun) and it works extremely well, with no problems at all!!! There is absolutely NO smell after you have “used” the toilet - nor is there a smell in the boat when no one has been on board for several weeks, i.e. over the winter.

As our boat has full 240v electrics, we have the “mains” version - there is a 12v alternative. There is a small fan, inside the toilet, that we run when on board and the 240v version also has a heater that helps to speed up the composting process. The fan evaporates the “liquid” up through the breather pipe - no matter what human waste you put into the toilet, most of it is water. There is NO smell outside the boat from this pipe.

The “solids” break down over time, just like in your garden compost - but slower. Every week you sprinkle a little composting “activator” inside the bowl (we use Garotter from a Garden Centre), mixed with 2 or 3 pints of warm water. You need to keep everything “moist” and “warm” for the natural process to be effective.

Once a year (or when the toilet looks full) you pull a bar at the base in and out several times - to give everythng a rake - and the “compost” falls into a tray. Put it in a plastic bag, take it home and put it on the garden. If the composting process has taken place correctly there is ABSOLUTELY NO SMELL AT ALL.

If you have the space on your boat - and are either concerned about costs or the environment - I would fully recommend you considering this alternative.

I have some photos of the Toilet in situ - in “The King’s Throne Room”. Send me an e-mail and I would be happy to forward them - or answer any other questions etc.”

“The King” has a long, rich history. Graham gives us the story:

The History of “The King”
In closing a bit about our boat “The King”. She was launched in April 1905 (now 101 years old), her hull is made of riveted iron and when built she was propelled by a steam engine. She was part of a fleet of 25 Steamers - only 5 or 6 remain to this day. “The President” is the only one now with a steam engine and this boat is owned by a Waterways Charity - but is five years younger than ours. I have attached a publicity picture of “The King” that was taken in 1910 ( see - “The King In 1910”). You can see the steam funnel, with the “captain” on the rear in his uniform of white corduroy trousers, black jacket and bowler hat. In front of him are the two engine room crew - the driver and stoker - who are in “blue overalls”. They were all very smart.

The steam engines were all removed by
1924 and Bolinder semi-diesels were put in. By removing the steam boilers, engines and coal bunkers, the boats could then carry 20 ton instead of the previous 10 tons - making the transportation far more economical. Up to 1948 the boat was owned by its original builders “Fellows, Morton & Clayton”, who were commercial waterways carriers. In 1948 the UK Government nationalised most of the canal carrying companies, but “The King” was sold into the ownership of a private business. She was used by various private carriers until the middle 1960s when the “carrying trade” ended and she was abandoned and ended up being sunk.

A few years later a private person “raised” her and covered her hold with a wooden cabin to make her into a residential leisure boat. The conversion was never entirely completed and the boat passed through a number of private owners in the 1980s and 1990s. In 2002 we were looking to buy a boat with a history and purchased “The King” in November 2003. Because of her neglected condition she was in dry and wet dock for 6 months, during which time she was repainted into her current traditional colours, with her original owners name - Fellows Morton & Clayton - being reinstated on the outside. Internally she was totally reconstructed to make very comfortable accommodation for two people plus the traditional 8’ “Boatman’s cabin” at the rear - where the boating family lived and cooked etc. when the boat carried goods. The fittings and furniture are what you would expect to have at home, Hot/cold running water, Lounge furniture, Flat screen TV, Hi Fi, Multi Fuel Stove, Central Heating, Household kitchen equipment, 6’6” wide fully sprung double bed, Power shower and an electrical system that is 12v, 24v and mains 240v (UK standard). This latter is created via a computer from the bank of 12v batteries and allows us to use mains household equipment like kettles etc.

Graham has also kindly sent us a very comprehensive history of the narrowboat. Quite interesting. Read on…

History of Narrowboats
Narrowboats in England have a long history - starting with the building of the Canal System in the 1700s. They were used for the carrying of goods as there were no suitable roads or the means to use them - only horses and carts which caused damage when used for carriage of fragile goods etc. They carried raw materials such as coal, china clay, wool, cotton, flour to the factories in the cities - and immediately made the finished articles much, much cheaper. Coal sent by canal just six miles to the factories in Manchester - halved the cost of the cotton goods that they made!!

Over a period of 150 years the Canal system was dug by hand and eventually linked all the four corners of England and the main river systems. There are two widths of navigation - the “Broad” system, where the bridge holes and locks allow the passage of a boat up to 14’ wide and the “Narrow” system where the boats can only be 7’ wide. This latter width is by far the most common and from that comes the word “Narrowboat”. Compared to your Canadian and American canal system the dimensions are clearly very, very different. English canals are not seaways, like in Europe.

"Your system was the perfect solution."

Thank you to Lynda in Quebec for sending in her comments and photos of her Envirolet® installation. Lynda is surrounded by water so she needed an environment-friendly solution. She installed an Envirolet® Low Water Remote System (go here for Canada).

“Hi,

This is our cabin in Ste-Agathe-Nord in Quebec. We are surrounded by a well on one side, a stream on the other side and a river in the front so your system was the perfect solution.”

"Boy, am I happy with my composting toilet."

George S. in Groton, New York kindly sent us his enthusiastic comments and photos today about his Envirolet® System. George has a Waterless Remote System (120VAC Electric).


“Hello,

Boy, am I happy with my composting toilet. I called your toll free number and explained my potential usage to a product contact. She recommended I buy the waterless remote 120V unit for my recreational camp that does not have water. My wife and I have 4 grown children as well as knowing we would have friends visit our camp.

We have used the toilet almost every weekend with a couple of weeks vacation since I installed it almost 7 months ago. I finally checked the emptying tray at 6 months and it was almost full, so I dumped it into the woods, done deal! Not bad for all the use we have.

By the way, out of the 6 in my immediate family 4 are women. They are quite happy that I didn’t build an outhouse!

Thanks for a well designed convenient way of composting this waste and feel free to use my testimonial.

I’ve included a couple of pictures because I am running out of accelerator. Thanks in advance for sending my free one!”

Sincerely,

The Envirolet® Waterless Remote System is ideal when you have the space to fit it. You need a minimu of 30” of space below the bathroom floor to fit. The composting tank goes below with the Waterless Toilet in the bathroom.

“Hi

Sorry for the bad pictures, but we couldn’t wait to let you know how impressed we are with your system. We looked at other brands at the store & online, & was a little nervous ordering without seeing the product first hand. We can’t get over how well the it works & no smell! Your staff is pleasant, helpful, & very knowledgeable which made for a comfortable transaction.”

Mike has our Envirolet® MS10 model. The MS10 is one of our most popular systems. It is completely waterless, runs off 120VAC electric and does not require an excess liquid drain. It is the recommended Self-Contained System when power is available. He compared available systems and went with Envirolet®.

This is a follow-up to a recent post on Buzz about Brian W.’s Envirolet® Waterless Remote System that has been used for four seasons in Vermont.

I’m including Brian’s recent comments as well. I like his idea about adding photos to the vent!

“I got the startup kit in the mail on Friday. Thanks so much for sending that right out, i’ll now be able to get that done when I head up to Vermont this coming weekend. I’m glad you like the photos, I’ll send you the other ones I have…..these were more in the process of installation and us finishing up with the rest of the bathroom, so that’s why its a mess…ha..

In two of these photos you can see the vent tube that we sent up from under the house out to the turbine. We thought about boxing over the tube for the portion that is still shown but we thought it would be an even better idea to leave it and decorate it with stickers and photos from our trips to the cabin. Take care, thanks again for the great product.

The photos that Brian sent are really awesome! They show you the main elements of a typical installation: the toilet, the composting unit and the vent system. When you look at the photos you can also see some clear features of Envirolet® that others do not have.

The Envirolet® Waterless Toilet is clearly the most aesthetically pleasing waterless toilet on the market. Compare to others and you will agree. They went with white, still the most popular color, but the Waterless Toilet comes in a variety of colors to match your bathroom.

Our composting unit (the black tank below the cabin) is connected to the Waterless Toilet with a durable flexible 8” drain connection. Being flex drain is important because it allows for movement of the system during climate changes. Combined with the Envirolet® System body that is made from rugged polyethylene and you have one tough unit (that comes with a Lifetime Warranty!). These features are especially important in colder climates like Vermont (not to mention Alaska, the rest of the northern States and Canada where many of our systems are installed).

The Wind Turbine. Only Envirolet® even offers a Wind Turbine. In fact, it is included standard with most models. The Wind Turbine really helps with the air-flow in the system and is the only “power” source in Non-Electric models.

There you go. A few Envirolet® features. Read more features here or call our experienced customer service team to speak to a live person. Call 1-800-387-5126 in the US, 1-800-387-5245 in Canada or 416-299-4818 from international locations.

"Quality of Construction"

EnviroletCare Julie, one of our amazing customer service reps, is truly on a roll! She received these fine comments on March 16 and received the ones below on the 18th via email from Paul in Wisconsin.


“Hello Julie,

Just to let you know, we received our Envirolet composting toilet yesterday (March 18th). It arrived in excellent condition. We are impressed with the quality & speed of service from Envirolet and the quality of construction of our composting toilet. I am looking forward to installing it at our cabin once the weather warms up enough to do the required roof/shingle work. Thanks again for the positive shopping experience.”


It’s great to know that the quality of Envirolet® systems is not going unnoticed. Our units are extremely durable and are probably the thickest unit on the market. Envirolet® is made from tough polyethylene that is recyclable and more environment-friendly than fiberglass (what some others use).

Why is this good? You want a solid unit thaty can survive the elements. You also want a more environment-friendly product.

The quality of our system bodies is what allows us to offer our Lifetime Warranty on the body. Compare this to others.

We want to hear your comments! Send them to us, with photos!

"Customer Focused Service"

EnviroletCare Envirolet® Customer Service Rep Julie received a short but kind email today (March 16, 2006) from a customer after sending him his tracking info for his soon-to-be-delivered Envirolet® Composting Toilet System:

lorna_n_bend_oregon-1.jpg


Thanks, Lorna! Testimonials like yours definately help spread the word about Envirolet® to individual consumers and government agencies. The system you are using, the Envirolet® WRS NE (waterless and non-electric model) is a perfect example of how to save water and energy! Your photo also shows that a composting toilet can look as nice (or better!) than a “regular” flush toilet in the bathroom.

One way others can help, other than installing their own system of course, is to link to this page or send the link to others, including the local authorities. Let’s spread the word and Ban the Flush!

Comments: I recently purchased an Envirolet Composting Toilet, model number MS10, and everything went very smoothly. After reading their very thorough web site I still had questions about the function of the product. I sent an email to Sancor with all of my specific questions and received a very detailed response the next day. I also called Sancor on the day I ordered the toilet and received very courteous and knowledgeable service. Placing the order was a simple matter of checking the features I wanted and the product was delivered exactly as promised. I installed the unit in less than a day and now have a functioning back up toilet without ever needing to call a plumber.


Thanks for the comments, Brian.

The Envirolet® MS10 is a waterless all-in-one composting toilet system and is one of our most popular models because it can be installed almost anywhere. Popular applications include cabins, cottages, basements, garages, work shops, boats, yurts, farms, and more! Basically, Envirolet® goes anywhere. The Ms10 is also the orginal Envirolet®, first coming to market in 1977.

Awesome Church Toilet

Envirolet Mrs. Edward P. sent us some kind comments (with her March 6, 2006 order for a Starter Kit and Compost Accelerator) about the Envirolet® Basic Plus System they have installed in their church in Minnesota.


“I am ordering some supplies that are needed for our church Envirolet toliet that was purchased from your company. It is AWESOME. I will be putting the check from the church in the mail tomorrow.”

Thank you.
Mrs. Edward P.


The Envirolet® Basic Plus is a waterless, self-contained system that can install almost anywhere. It uses no power, but has a high rate of evaporation thanks to the included 4” Wind Turbine ventilator.

Churches are popular applications for Envirolet® Composting Toilets. The fact that water is not required, its environmental and economical benefits, the choice of power and the ease of installation make it a wise choice.

"We love it."

Ellen and Jim sent us a couple of photos and kind words about their Envirolet® Waterless Remote System with a Green Granite Waterless Toilet.


“Hi there,

My name is Ellen S.

My husband and I have a summer beach cottage in RI. We installed one of the green granite waterless toilets in our beach house last April and we love it.

Some of our neighbors installed the white one but my husband wanted to be different so we purchased one of the colors that you sell. I’m glad we did, I like green granite color.

There is no septic system and we have well water. There are public bathrooms at the beach we can use but they are only open from May 15 to Oct 15 so by us installing our new Envirolet toilet we were able to stay at the beach from April to December and enjoy using our new bathroom with our own toilet.”

Thank you,
Ellen & Jim S

"I'm impressed. And I haven't even bought one yet."

A future Envirolet® customer sent us this great letter detailing some of the reasons they are going to go with an Envirolet®.

The comments about customer service and product support (“Some of the systems I’ve looked at leave you out in the cold after you buy it. “What? You spent $1500 for our system AND you expect support for it?”“) are especially timely after our just announced warranty increase.


“I’m impressed. And I haven’t even bought one yet.

My wife and I just bought property out in the woods and we did not want to have a septic system for our toilet.

We’ve got the sink and shower water discharge covered by using non-toxic soaps and shampoos. We hope.

We expected to find environmentally friendly composting toilet designs. I found several systems that fulfill that.

What impresses me is how consumer friendly your design is. Other companies seem to say “if you REALLY love the environment you’ll suffer some (or a lot of) inconvenience.” You have that solved.

The next thing I’m impressed with is how finished your product looks. A lot of other systems look pieced together from parts you’d find at a hardware store.

Another thing I’m impressed with is your consumer followup. Some of the systems I’ve looked at leave you out in the cold after you buy it. “What? You spent $1500 for our system AND you expect support for it?” {evil laughter follows}

We are in the early stages of getting our land ready to move on to, so we haven’t bought a system, yet.

When the time comes to buy a system there is no doubt in my mind where I’m going to get it.”

Sincerely,
Jesse

"...ten of my neighbors have installed the same system that I have."

This is a wonderful letter we received from a satisfied Envirolet® user in Rhode Island on January 23, 2006. His Envirolet® gave him an additional two months use of his beach front property!


“For the past 50 years I have been spending my summers in Rhode Island. The 370 houses in the beach area all use well water so septic systems are not allowed. Therefore, your summers are limited to May 15 to October 15, when the public bathrooms are open at the beach.

In April 2001 I knocked down my old summer house and built a new one. At that time I was told of the Envirolet Waterless Composting Toilet system, and after doing some research I thought this would be good system because of the restrictions we have, and we designed the house to accommodate the system.

Since that time approximately ten of my neighbors have installed the same system that I have.



buzz-100_1275.jpg
The Waterless Toilet in the bathroom.


After putting in the starter kit, I then add one cup of peat per day, the composting accelerator once a week and I use the rake every three days. At the end of the season I let the heater/fan run for two weeks and then turn it off for the winter. In the spring I clean out the holding tank and install a new starter kit.

Thanks to the Envirolet Toilet I no longer have to depend on the public bathrooms at the beach. My season of sitting by the ocean front went from April 15 to November 13 this past year.

I would, and I have, recommended this system to anyone living in an area similar to this. It may sound strange to someone that is not from here, but people that are planning to rebuild their summer homes will stop over, just to see my toilet.”

Wind Protection

The last post on Buzz featured a testimonial and photo from an Envirolet® Low Water Remote System in Nova Scotia.

The customer also sent this photo. Although the composting unit itself is not visible, this photo does demonstrate an awesome installation idea that is always recommended.

IMG_0873-400w.jpg

In the photo you can see that the 4” Flexible Vent is coming out from below the structure. The composting unit is hidden below. The Vent is exiting through a hole cut in some wood.

Basically, this customer used plywood to protect the composting unit from the wind. Great installation!

Cold winds and temperatures will never aid in the composting process. So, it is always a good idea to add insulation like this or in the form of a Winter Box if you are in a colder climate, especially with a Low Water system.

Thanks again for the photos, Sadie.

"It is a great product."



Sadie A. in Cape Breton, NS sent us a couple photos and a testimonial about her Envirolet Low Water Remote System.


“I only have 2 pictures of our new Envirolet toilet.

The second pic is of the toilet inside the house.

It is a great product.”

Here is a great photo and great comments about an Envirolet Waterless Remote System that is installed in a “Composting Outhouse” in Wisconsin sent to us by Ted G.

4b-400w.jpg

“Hello, I built an outhouse for a customer. It is all cedar and is the best looking outhouse I have ever seen. I installed one of your units in it, and it is working great. if you want to see pictures of it, or if any of your clients want to see a real life working model I have a web page with pictures.”
www.bayfieldbuilders.com

From their web site:
This composting outhouse was built in the summer of 2005 in the Bayfield area. It features an Envirolet composting toilet. This cozy outhouse is 6’ x 6’ with a 4’ deck on the front of it. It is constructed with all cedar siding and interior paneling.

The Envirolet requires 12 volt power to run a small venting fan. The Outhouse also has 12 volt interior and exterior lights, with the possibility of adding a solar panel in the future for battery recharging.

They are in Wisconsin.

"More use out of our trailer."



Tom and Pat S. in Pennsylvania sent us some photos and a detailed testimonial about their Envirolet® MS10 that they purchased in 1999 for use in a converted office trailer. Talk about a great way to recycle something!


“We purchased our Envirolet waterless self-contained toilet in October 1999 to use in an office trailer. We had purchased the office trailer used and put it on our property to use as hunting cabin.

Regulations in the area required we have a sanitary method to dispose of human waste since we have no running water on property this was a problem.

We found infomation on your toilet on the internet and after checking with the DER found it met zoning requirements in an area where there is no running water.

The toilet was easy to install, a pleasure to use and requires little or no maintainence and is attractive to look at.

Its biggest selling factor is that it is odor-free. Since we do not use the toilet daily we only use the heater and fan while we are in residence. This can be as little as hours or up to a week at a time. We use your compost accelerator kit and regular peat moss to cover waste. By using the heater feature it not only drys out waste but has the added advantage of keeping the seat nice and warm on cold winter days.

This toilet has enabled our whole family to get more use out of our trailer.

If you need additional info please contact us.”

Thanks,
Tom and Pat S.

The Space Age Enviro-House



This is one of my favourite Envirolet® installation photos.

This system was installed in a modern out-building for winter use.

This “outhouse” puts the traditional outhouse to shame! It’s cool looking, clean, spacious and has windows!

Of course, don’t forget that it has an advanced, environment-friendly, 12v Envirolet® Composting Toilet System in it!

The customer called it the Space Age Outhouse, but we’re calling it the Space Age Enviro-House because using an Envirolet® is nothing like using an outhouse!

"We're telling all of our friends that Envirolet makes the best composting toilets."

Some more kind words from Kimberly in Texas about her Envirolet® MS10 that came in subsequent to the photo she sent in.


“My husband and I love our Envirolet Waterless Self Contained toilet! It was easy to install; it’s easy to maintain; and there are no odors. Also, it looks perfect in the school bus that we’ve converted into a bathroom.

Our flower garden is anxious to recieve the benefits of our composting toilet. We’re telling all of our friends that Envirolet makes the best composting toilets.”



Thanks again! And we agree that Envirolet® is the best composting toilet system!

Great Workmanship in Envirolet Basic Plus

Another quick note from a customer that we received today (September 6, 2005). Frank B. is a new customer from Massachusetts. His unit is installed in Maine. He writes:


“I recently received my Envirolet Non-Electric Waterless toilet - the workmanship is great! I am very impressed!

I have one question - there is a 3” black union coupling in the enclosed parts. Do I need to use this since I don’t have the electrical panel?”


Frank B.
Massachusetts, USA

See our answer to his question below.

Envirolet Basic Plus Composting Toilet
Envirolet® Basic Plus


Thank you Frank for noticing the quality of your Envirolet® Basic Plus System. We put a lot of care and effort to make sure the product you receive is top-notch.

This is what gives us the confidence to offer an industry leading Lifetime Warranty on the body and Four-Year Warranty on all internal components. And, unlike some other systems, there is actually something inside our system! Some systems out there are essentially empty shells. Envirolet® is full of engineered, quality components to compost efficiently.

To answer his question… Yes, you should use the 3” Union Coupling. The coupling allows for quick & easy vent diconnection, if required.

How is this different that a normal coupling? The Union Coupling is special because it allows the pipe to be connected, sealed and then easily disconnected. The coupling is made of thick, durable rubber. When compressed against the vent pipe using the stainless steel gear clamps an essential liquid and air tight seal is created.

These clamps then simply need to be loosened with a screwdriver for disconnection. Then the rubber coupling can be dropped downwards, allowing the vent to be removed.

The MS10 is the original Envirolet® System, first made in 1977. It is a waterless self-contained system and installs right on the bathroom floor. A great solution.

OWL Rafting

Dirk at OWL Rafting was kind enough to send us some nice pictures of the Envirolet® Waterless Toilets in use at their camp sites. There are several installed.

Dirk and Claudia Van Wijk, both National and International Whitewater Champions, own and operate OWL Rafting.

OWL is located in Foresters Falls, Ontario, Canada (near Ottawa) with raft excursions down the legendary 12 km “Rocher Fendu” rapids on the Ottawa River.

owlrafting5.jpg
On the Ottawa River with OWL

I went to OWL a couple of years ago with a group of friends for our first rafting experience. It was amazing!

OWL is very professional with excellent river guides that make sure you have a fun and safe time. You get a full day of rafting down the Ottawa River.

Along the way you stop for some cliff diving and food! At the end of the rafting trip, you meet up with a pontoon boat where they serve food and drinks while you float along the river back to the camp site. Talk about a relaxing end to the rafting day!

owlrafting4.jpg
The main building

Off the river, the ammenties are very nice. You can choose to camp or stay in one of their cabins. And, the day doesn’t end when the rafting does. You can hnag out in the main building where there is music and fun!

Be sure to check out some more photos from OWL.

"The Rabbit"

A customer in Louisiana sent us some nice pictures of his Envirolet® MS10 installation.

Rabbit-1a.jpg

He told us that he is a very satisfied customer and that the visitors to the cabin (where the MS10 is) range from children to some “very old people” and everyone is very happy with the system.

This is no ordinary cabin. It is amazing looking. Great design. And check out the view!

DHEndView.JPG

He also emailed us the (extremely humourous) instructions he made and posted in the bathroom for guests! They call their Envirolet the Rabbit.

“Attached is a .doc file of the instructions we have on the unit for our visitors. We have not had to make any revisions since installation in 12/02, so apparently our directions have been clear enough.

Also attached are a few pictures of the building and a plan, showing where we parked the Rabbit.

[When I first read this I thought they were referring to their Airstream trailer as the Rabbit because of the parking reference!]

If you have any problems with the files, let me know.”

You can see the instructions on the Envirolet® in the picture above. Read them below:


——

The Rabbit

The ergonomically efficient plastic box before you (“the Rabbit” to friends and users) is an indoor outhouse.

Directions (the Eight Step Method):

1. Relax…Lock the door… Don’t mess with the fan switches… Let anxiety slip away…
2. Move the grey lid¤ (either way) with the lever located off to the right (VERY IMPORTANT) and inspect the dungheap¥ (chaos).
3. Do whatever business and contribute to the ecosystem.
4. Use the really thin tissue for personal hygiene and grey bowl clean-up (antibacterial soap is close-by at the sink)
5. Inspect the dungheap (still chaos, even for royalty and the anointed)
6. FEED THE RABBIT with about ¼ cup of peat moss from the spiffy galvanized can (1/4 cup will not cover much)
7. Replace the grey lid over the dungheap (VERY IMPORTANT)
8. Relax—guilt-free… Don’t mess with the fan switches… Let anxiety drift away… Unlock the door…Rejoin civilization.

Frequently asked questions:
What can go wrong?
Not much. The Rabbit is an indoor outhouse with one moving part. Just be alert to the grey lid.

The Proprietors.

¤ The grey lid is what we call the Trap.
¥ We would probably use a different word, but oh well!

Nine Mile Basic School

Nine Mile Basic School, in Jamaica, caters to up to 55 children, from ages 3 to 6.

The original building was setup with a few concrete blocks. It had a dirt floor and no roof, and the origintal structure was 15’ x 25’ 6” (i.e. 382.5 sf). The School is located at the end of the main road, at the entrance of the village.

ninemile.jpg

Now, Nine Mile is getting some major renovations!

Six Envirolet® Waterless Toilets have been installed at Nine Mile Basic School to replace the old ones built with breeze blocks. We hope to post some pictures of the installed Envirolet toilets soon!

Nine Mile renews faith in some of the important elements of life, with breathtaking views that absorbing the natural beauty of the tranquil Jamaican countryside, as well as the more than 200 species of flowering plants and indigenous trees.

Nine Mile, situated high in the mountains on the beautiful island of Jamaica, is a small friendly village tucked away in the parish of St. Ann. This quaint hamlet is known as the birthplace of Bob Marley.

Wonderful Idea

This is a great comment we received recently from a very informed individual in Texas:

“I am 17 years old, and i think the Envirolet is a wonderful idea, billions of people worldwide don’t even have water to drink, much less put their poop in, this is a great way to save a necessary resource and still be hygienic. Good Job.”

Toolgirl Discovers the Miracle of Composting Toilets

There is a great story about Envirolet® over on the Toolgirl blog. Toolgirl is the blog home of Canadian actor/writer/tool-pro Mag Ruffman.

toolgirl.jpg


Mag Ruffman is a television producer, writer and actress. She spent seven years as “Olivia Dale” on Disney/CBC’s beloved Road to Avonlea, and five seasons as host, creator and producer of the fix-it classic A Repair to Remember (78 episodes) and the Gemini-nominated workshop series Anything I Can Do (52 episodes) which now airs worldwide.

Mag also writes for Home Envy. You can learn more about Mag and her current projects here.

On Toolgirl, Mag writes of the Miracle of Composting Toilets. We couldn’t agree more.

Mag writes:

“Lots of people are adding composting toilets to pool houses, remote cabins, workshops, garages, cottages and motor homes. A composting toilet is the ultimate solution when you want to put a bathroom in a spot that has any of the following issues:

1. No power
2. No sewer hook-up
3. No septic system
4. No plumbing
5. No water supply

As it happens, my future bathroom site (in our small barn where I’m building an office) has all of those issues. How lucky can one girl get?

In the old days the answer would have been an outhouse but there’s no way I’m using a kybo when it’s minus 35 outside. And I’m not spending $20,000 on a septic system either.

Salvation lies in composting toilet technology, which has been around since the Seventies (actually since 1000 B.C. if you count ancient composting pit toilets in India), but is only now becoming mainstream.”

Why Envirolet®?
Mag says that “I chose the Envirolet model over its competitors because it has a highly efficient aeration chamber, which means you don’t have to add peat moss to the toilet every time you poo, although that’s always a good conversation starter.”

She’s talking about the Envirolet® patented Automatic Six-Way Aeration System.

wsc-basicplus-white-400x400.jpg


She opted for the Envirolet® Basic Plus, our non-electric waterless self-contained model. It will be used in her new writing barn.

We will be checking in with Mag regularily for updates and hope to get some pictures of her set-up. Be sure to check out her sites.

From Outhouse To Tool Shed

Here are some nice pictures that tell a great story from an Envirolet® user in Missouri. They used to use an old-fashioned outhouse. Then they got their Envirolet® Composting Toilet System. (The comments from the customer are in quotes.)

“This is the cabin we have in Mark Twain National Forest, in Ste Genevieve County, Missouri.

I built it in 1965, on a pile of rock, [the] reason for installing your unit [was that there was] no way to put in a drain field for less than 20,000 bucks. We lived here for three months during the great flood of ‘93, the only sanitation at that time was a Johnny-on-the-Spot unit, we had no water or electric.”

And then they got an Envirolet®, which replaced the old outhouse (and temporary Johnny-on-the-Spot!).

MVC-013S.jpg
The cabin

“This is the new nice clean no smell Envirolet by Sancor, really a super operation, we really like it.”

MVC-005S.jpg
The Envirolet® inside the cabin

“My wife says this sure beats going to the old place during the ice and snow.”

MVC-014S.jpg
The old outhouse converted to a tool shed

“[The outhouse] is 30 years old and now a tool shed.”

We apologize to outhouses everywhere! But, look out because Envirolet® is going to replace you!

Nice Cabin Pictures

An Envirolet® looks good in any cottage or cabin.

Space Age Enviro-House

Try This at Home! Ken P., an Envirolet® user in Alberta, Canada emailed us February 7, 2005 with some excellent pictures of his system installation. He has the popular Envirolet® DC12 (12v Battery) model with a 50W Solar Panel to keep the 12v battery charged. Additionally, the optional Envirolet® Turbo Fan is installed in the vent line.

‘Thanks for your good service and excellent product,’ he wrote!

This system was installed in a modern out-building for winter use. This ‘outhouse’ puts the traditional outhouse to shame! It’s cool looking, clean, spacious and has windows! Not to mention it has an advanced, environment-friendly, 12v Envirolet® Composting Toilet System in it! He called it the Space Age Outhouse, but we’re calling it the Space Age Enviro-House because using an Envirolet® is nothing like using an outhouse!

You can do the same or, like most do, put the system in the cottage or home!

Hopefully they’ll out up some blinds on the windows! Although, it looks like the trees will provide privacy!”
