Septic System Alternatives

If you're searching for septic system alternatives, you've come to the right place. Composting toilets are great septic system alternatives because they're easy to install, odorless, and they cost thousands of dollars less to install than a traditional septic system. If you haven't considered a composting toilet, or if you're not quite sure what one is, please visit our FAQ page, where you'll find answers to our most commonly asked questions. When it comes to septic system alternatives, you can't go wrong with a composting toilet. For a complete list of all the composting toilets we sell, please see our Product Selection Guide.

Did you know that all the composting toilets sold through the Composting Toilet Store are NSF certified? In North America, there is only one performance standard for composting toilets, and that is NSF/ANSI Standard #41. The composting toilets we sell are the only ones that comply with this standard, meaning that they have all been tested and certified to operate without odor and product a clean, safe compost. For more information, please see the NSF Listing. To receive a complete copy of the testing report and certification and compliance documentation, you may contact us, or request the information directly from the NSF. This information can be particularly helpful if you are working with your city building department to have one of our composting toilets listed as an approved fixture, or prove that it meets your local building codes. For more information and assistance on this topic, please contact us.

All the composting toilets you find listed on this page are Central water flush units. A Central water flush system is a great option for someone who is especially concerned about having a traditional looking toilet fixture in the bathroom. The primary difference that a guest will notice when in the bathroom is that the toilet fixture for your Central system doesn't have a water tank, like a traditional toilet. Instead, it has a foot pedal that, when depressed, opens up a water valve, flushing water down the toilet as long as the pedal remains depressed. Typically, only about one pint of water is required to transport waste from the toilet fixture down to the Central unit below, though this can vary, depending on how far away the Central unit is installed from the bathroom.

The Central units shown on this page can also be broken down into two more categories: electric and non electric units. Electric units will come with a standard AC plug that works with 110 volt outlets. The electricity is used to power the fan assembly and heating element that warms and evaporates excess liquid in the central unit. With a non-electric system, a fan will likely still be required, and you'll have to run some type of DC power to the fan. This can be done with an old car battery and solar panel, for example.
