How to Build a Compost Toilet [NOOK Book]

Overview

Also known as “waterless toilets”, “dry toilets” and “biological toilets”, the composting toilet is actually a toilet with the main goal of breaking down human waste into humus, a substance that resembles soil, rather than flushing it down the sewer system where vast amounts of chemicals and water are used to do what nature does naturally.

Overview

Also known as “waterless toilets”, “dry toilets” and “biological toilets”, the composting toilet is actually a toilet with the main goal of breaking down human waste into humus, a substance that resembles soil, rather than flushing it down the sewer system where vast amounts of chemicals and water are used to do what nature does naturally.

My first compost toilet was one of these fancy shmancy $2000 units. It lasted 3 months. Before purchasing a different style I decided to take what I know of Anaerobic decomposition of organic matter and put it to the test building my own compost toilet. That was over 10 years ago and I still have the same toilet. That’s longer than most people own conventional toilets for.

I’ll show you step by step how to make 2 very simple styles of home composting toilets, which operate better, cleaner and will last longer than any model on the market today for a tenth of the price.

Meet the Author

Dan Martin lived 100% off-the-grid, completely cut-off from society. There were no electric lines, no telephone lines, no garbage or sewer service, no mail, no city water, no cell service, not even a road to the property. Dan built their home alone in the shape of an octagon without walls, completely open to the surrounding landscape so that they could live 'with' nature. They lived off rain water catchment, raised, bred and slaughtered goats, chickens, catfish, turkeys and ducks for food, made their own fuel and grew underground hydroponic fruits and vegetables.

Dan Martin became a consultant performing hundreds of similar sustainable living projects, teaching others about making their own renewable fuels and ways to harness alternative energies, along with building with natural materials and living independently. He has designed and overseen dozens of projects for governmental agencies as well as private corporations and overseas clients.
