WATERLESS COMPOSTING TOILETS from CLIVUS MULTRUM AUSTRALIA
Waterless composting toilets were first developed in Sweden over 60 years ago and have been adopted widely in Europe and the USA in areas where reticulated sewerage services are not available. Their many benefits are now being increasingly recognised in Australia for both household and public use as water conservation and the environmental impact of our past practices become ever more important.
Waterless composting toilets don’t need water or chemicals to treat or transport our wastes, so they can help save our valuable water supplies whilst avoiding negative impact on the local environment. Waterless composting toilets use natural bacterial processes to break down wastes into hygienically safe compost that can be beneficially recycled into the soil. In a typical home this saves around one third of the in-house water use and also results in a much cleaner household effluent outflow, significantly reducing the treatment requirements and impact on the local environment.
Clivus Multrum Australia has a range of waterless composting toilets ranging from budget models for the farm shed or weekender cabin through to attractive units for the modern family home. Our larger composting systems have also been adopted for many years in public amenities for locations as diverse as the Barrier Reef, Ayres Rock and Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain.
The EcoLetâ models are a fully self contained, waterless composting toilet, easily installed on the floor, and cater for small families or part-time use. The Clivus MultrumTM waterless composting models use a larger compost chamber under the floor to cater for higher use, and can even be fitted with a second pedestal. A small extraction fan built into each system positively eliminates bathroom odours.
Although local requirements vary, waterless composting systems approved by relevant government authorities are available around Australia, and are easily installed and maintained.
