Its been great. No mess, no fuss, its saved on overuse of our septic system. I'd recommend it to anyone. We built a solid step for further comfort.

It may be THE invention of the 20th Century. It is so great not to have to worry about a septic system, sewage smells, etc. We think the composting toilet is excellent.

Lynn & David's cabin is in the Lake of the Woods region just west of Kenora, Ontario. Many cottage owners in this area enjoy the convenience of a Sun-Mar.

Letter from Lorrie & Brian, August 11 1999:

We installed our Excel electric toilet in May of 98.

At our cabin we have greywater disposal, but not sewer. We have a lot of guests on weekends, so we try to all use the "indoor" toilet (the composting toilet) on rainy days, or at night... and we use our outhouse when we are outside anyway.

I found the job of emptying the toilet this Spring not bad at all, the dirt looked like top soil, no evidence of toilet paper or anything. We are very happy with the product.

P.S. When my husband was walking out of Home Depot in Calgary last spring with the toilet, he was stopped by many people asking him about the toilet. They were very interested.

People are always surprised when they enter what they expect to be an ordinary outhouse and find a clean toilet with "no odor!". And also to learn how easy it is to manage. We have found the new Compost Sure to work much better.

(ed. - Compost Sure is Sun-Mar's special peat mix with Hemp!)

Mr. & Mrs. Rennie in their cottage at Baptiste Lake, north of Bancroft. The Sun-Mar Excel was used year round for the first two years, and since then has been used from April to late fall each year.

Mrs. Rennie and her husband are very pleased with their toilet which "has absolutely no smell". Mrs. Rennie throws all her kitchen greens into the toilet, as well as peat moss (Sun-Mar addition: we no longer recommend the addition of kitchen waste). The system is used by 5-6 people throughout the summer.

Letter from Jim & Fran Fraser, Sept 3, 1999


For your interest I have enclosed several photos showing:
a) the shed I built at our cottage for the Excel (door on the right) - the shed area to the left is a workshop
b) the interior view of the toilet area
c) the pine wood shavings I use now in place of your Compost Sure.
To date it is working well.
