The Composting Toilet System Book
Learn all you need to know about constructing, buying and living
with a composting toilet and graywater system!


From cottage toilets to whole-house composters with micro-flush toilets and graywater gardens, The Composting Toilet System Book covers a wide realm of ecological toilet options. Composting toilet systems and other ecological wastewater management methods are emerging as viable and cost-saving alternatives to wastewater disposal systems worldwide. The book details why—and how to choose, install and maintain them. In this book, you will find

  • Descriptions of more than 40 systems—both manufactured and site-built—and their sources
  • Compatible toilet stools and micro-flush toilet installation tips
  • Tips on choosing, planning, installing and maintaining your composting toilet system (including what manufacturers don't tell you!)
  • The experiences of owner-operators worldwide
  • What you should know about graywater systems
  • Regulations and advice about getting your system approved

The Composting Toilet System Book contains the information you need to choose and maintain composting toilet systems and other alternatives to sewer and septic systems. Long used by off-the-grid homeowners, parks and cottage owners, composting toilet systems are now making their way into conventional year-round homes. The technology has improved and is available in styles compatible with upscale bathrooms. In addition to providing technical information on various systems, the book profiles composting toilet system applications worldwide, provides United States permitting information, and features key maintenance and operation information that the manufacturers do not provide. The book also contains information about using these systems with graywater systems and flush toilets. Find out how you can have a smaller leachfield, reduce pollution, and help arm yourself and your community against the skyrocketing water and sewage costs of the future.

The book is co-authored by David Del Porto, who has sold and serviced thousands of several models and brands of composting toilet systems since 1972. He has also helped write regulations and performance standards for these systems, and has designed composting toilet and graywater systems for Greenpeace and for developing countries.
