9780966678307: The Composting Toilet System Book: A Practical Guide to Choosing, Planning and Maintaining Composting Toilet Systems, a Water-Saving, Pollution-Preven

From systems for cottages to year-round systems with micro-flush toilets and graywater gardens, the wide range of ecological recycling toilet options are featured in The Composting Toilet System Book.

More than 40 systems—including those you can buy and those you can build—are featured.

Composting toilet systems and other ecological wastewater management methods are increasingly installed in both seasonal and year-round homes, as municipalities require systems that won't pollute the environment and drinking water. This book details why—and how to choose, install and maintain them.

You'll also find profiles of owner-operators worldwide, regulatory information for every state, compatible toilet stools (waterless, micro-flush, foam- and vacuum-flush and urine-diverting), a chapter on graywater systems, information about health risks and handling, and sources for many off-the-shelf and DIY designs.

[IMPORTANT NOTE: This book is written to be regulator friendly to make getting local permits for a system easier.]

If you are seeking to install a system that meets state codes or if you are simply seeking to make your own system, this book is for you. Stop polluting and start recycling and saving water today!

About the Author:

David Del Porto has sold and serviced thousands of several models of composting toilets since 1972. He has also designed several systems, starting with systems for parks and for Greenpeace in the Pacific islands. Today, these same designs have been modified for a wide variety of settings, including upscale resorts that demand systems that are non-polluting, are easy to maintain and feature attractive one-pint-flush toilets. His composting toilet and graywater system designs are in homes and public sites worldwide. He has also helped write regulations and performance standards for these systems.

Carol Steinfeld is a freelance writer and projects director for Ecowaters, a nonprofit that informs the public about ecological wastewater recycling options and conducts workshops on this topic worldwide. She is the author of Liquid Gold: The Lore and Logic of Using Urine to Grow Plants and Reusing the Resource: Adventures in Ecological Wastewater Recycling (2nd edition due November 2004).
