The average Sydney home uses in excess of 330,000lt of water per year. Up to 20% is used in toilets and 25% in bathrooms.
In schools and community premises water usage in these two areas accounts for the majority of water usage.
Government grants are available to encourage community and business groups to reduce their water use via rain water and waterless urinals.
Eco Living Centre has a great range of composting toilets and it can also advise and prepare water audits and submissions if required.
Why install a Composting toilet?
Compost toilets can go anywhere and sit on any level surface, concrete, timber etc, all with no sewer connection. Just add your compost starter kit, fit the extraction pipe-work and its fully working. No need for a plumber. The compost toilets are simple to maintain and odourless. The compost toilets are ideal for country properties, holiday homes, sheds, even building sites.
Environmental benefits - Reduces use of harmful chemicals for disinfection, the composting systems use a natural biological process, are environmentally-friendly and help return nutrients to the soil. Most systems consume minimal electrical power.
Be self-sufficient - With a waterless toilet, grey-water system and rainwater tank, your house and garden can be self-sufficient when it comes to water and waste management.
Save money - No service or maintenance contracts, lower electrical costs, fewer moving parts and no pumps.
Composting toilet systems provide sustainable alternatives and are less expensive than on-site systems that use flushing toilets, such as aerated waste treatment systems, septic tanks and worm farms.
