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.

    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )   
    • It's a break action shotgun with one barrel stacked over the other.   Hope this helps  
    • In this depth range I still use the DT10. Unless the weeds are growing up quite a bit. If they are then I will use the DT6. 
    • the complete ridge line of the roof is a vent.    
    •   Thought, small vents at top ends? Peeeu!
