Incinerator Toilets

6 posts in this topic

Anybody have one or used one???

I need to do something for the lake and I'm not about to sink $8000 into a mound system.

I have an Privy now and I'm ok with that but the wife..... not so much.

Any suggestions would be welcomed.

Mike

Plumbing fixtures in minnesota have to be of a non-pourous and self cleansing disign to be code. You could look into a holding tank and have it pumped as needed you would have to look into local codes to see what they would allow for holding tanks.

I used one at a friend's cabin. It took a little getting used to, but worked well.

A guy I work with just purchased one and paid to have it installed (electrician) there are electric or gas insinerator toilets. I just choked when he told me how much he paid for it!

He really didnt have a choice his property is all bedrock and he cant dig a hole for septic holding tank and or mound system/drainfield. Granted septic systems are exspensive but so are insinerator toilets.

Just wondering if the wife doesn't like the current setup how's she going to react when you tell her that the word 'incinerator' is in the name of the thing??? Good luck with that one.

Also look into the temp range that these must be used at. I don't have one, but looked at them a bit before we built with septic, to replace our outhouse...

What I did for the outhouse back when we used it, is installed an RV toilet (in the newly constructed outhouse) and just ran a water line from a barrel to "flush" it. It doesn't take much water, and will actually help with the decomposition. It worked great, and the outhouse was clean and looked like alittle bathroom smile Something to consider... Good luck.
