Composting toilets are not used in this part of the country as much as they are up north. We and our guests really appreciate our composting toilet @ "The Fishing Cabin". Attached are pictures of the installation - I am not including pictures of John & Louis hauling it up a 40' cliff.

Remind your customers that after spending a weekend at their cabin, when they get home, they have to flush (our guests have gotten so used to not flushing, they forget to when they get home).

Letter from Jane Campbell, January 7 1999:

I enclose pics of my cottage & my Compact Sun-Mar installation. It has been called the world's most elegant outhouse - Actually, it is obviously not "out", though one has to go outside to the back of the cottage to get there -

I have been generally satisfied with my Compact, since solving the problem of insufficient absorption due to too fine peat moss - I now mostly use fallen and partially decomposed pepper (California pepper) leaves which are very small and brittle and seem to work well.

I am planning to move at least part time to Fairbanks, Alaska, & may use a Compact there, too - I'll let you know.

-Jane Campbell

Our family has spent many happy days at our "very basic cabin". We have electricity but no running water. Our compost unit is ideal. We have no closing concerns for the winter. Just flip a switch.
There are no problems with frozen or broken pipes. And our environment is protected - we are totally satisfied.

We do not have the option of a traditional flush toilet at our summer place. We put in a gas incinerator toilet first, then heard about Sun-Mar composting toilets. Our Sun-Mar is much easier to maintain. The folks at Sun-Mar are very helpful. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for your amazing composting toilet! My partner and I live in a beautiful refinished barn in rural Oregon. It is not plumbed and the Sun-Mar composting toilet sits in a stall decorated with photos and hangings from all over the world.

We have been so pleased to not have to trudge through the Oregon rain to an outhouse or up to our main house in the middle of the night!

We have been impressed that the toilet can take our fairly consistent forgetfulness about emptying the drawer. In the two years we've had it, it has never smelled, nor caused a problem. What a miracle!

We hope to build a larger community in the country eventually, and the houses will be peppered with your composting toilets.

Works great - weekends up to 5 adults. Compost great for flowers and shrubs. We use it year round and are very happy with performance.

Doesn't stink, doesn't take much room, very low maintenance - and sure as hell beats goin' in a bucket (as we did in the past).
