What a biotoilet can be with our own hands
Modern biotoilets can be electric, liquid and peat. Not all of them can be designed independently, but in any case, you have a choice. The simplest bio-toilet, even a camp toilet, will consist of two articulated containers. The upper one serves as a reception compartment, and the lower one serves as a collection and disposal site for waste. The filler formulations not only help the waste to decompose faster, but also destroy smells.
It is logical that a homemade electric bio toilet is something for the pros, the average average summer resident is not just unlikely to build such a structure himself, From this idea at least in order to save electricity.
Liquid bio-toilet is already something more real, but you will not have to save on it. Firstly, a lot of water is needed for its functioning; secondly, it will be necessary to constantly purchase special fillers, biological preparations, but they are worth a lot. But, of course, this is not an excuse to abandon the idea of construction, and come up with something temporary( not a bucket of course, of course).As an option - a peat bio-toilet, a pretty good country toilet, which is available to almost everyone.
How to make a peat toilet for your own home
Nothing fundamentally new this device does not offer. Once a similar design was called powder-cluset. The main part of such a closet is a waste container, which, in turn, was "disguised" by some kind of powder. Ashes, for example. Or dry ground and sawdust. In a modern peat bio-toilet, peat plays the role of this powder.
Advantages of the peat dry closet:
- It does not pollute the environment;
- It does not require liquid for its operation;
- The result is a qualitative natural fertilizer;
- The price of consumables is low.
First, decide where such a toilet place. In its structure there is no cesspool, therefore pollution of ground waters is excluded. But still it is recommended not to put it close to the water. If we talk about the smell, it will be insignificant. But, nevertheless, to put it in sight is not worth it.
Composting toilet is made by own hands
Composting - and there is peat, if you get into the essence of the device. To build it, you need to have a good hermetic capacity, in its quality usually used barrels, tanks, buckets or sealed cesspools. The choice is based on the approximate number of persons served in the given place.
The device will include:
- Wooden box;
- Box for peat;
- Booth( "birdhouse");
If we talk about the simplest version of such a dry closet, it will be a wooden toilet seat, to which is attached a vessel serving as a receptacle. The device is assembled so: to the legs, five centimeters protruding from one side, the short sides are fastened to the walls. And to the legs on the side of the back wall is screwed a plate on which there will be loops. On the bar, the hinges fix the lid. A round hole in the shape of a bucket is cut in the lid.
The construction should be ground, then treated with an antiseptic. Then directly above the hole, attach the toilet seat, homemade or purchased in the store. Sometimes for a similar toilets there is a place even in the cottage, but, truth, for a very small toilet. As you can see, the drawings are not particularly required, everything is simple.
What is a composting toilets for continuous use
But such a bio-toilet can be installed in the house accurately and can be used often without any fear. In this case, the drive will be performed as a tank with an inclined bottom, so that the mass of waste has a spontaneous motion. And the size of such a structure can be about 2-3 m in length, and 1-2 m in width.
To make a peat toilet work well, you need:
- Ensure the presence of oxygen - ventilation removes and unpleasant odors;
- Humidity is minimized - possibly using flash tubes or separating streams.
In active models of biotoilets there is a fan, a heater, and a thermostat. The compost formation in such models is usually carried out over a year. In passive time, it increases twice or more. In continuous designs, it is possible to extract and, accordingly, use ready-made compost, and the filling of the container and the transformation of the waste will not be stopped at the same time.
If you prefer a toilet that works on the basis of a special liquid-splitter, and you can make it yourself. Taking into account the high cost of liquid this is actual. The simplest recipe is vinegar, table salt, starch and essential oil. Change the splitter every 3-4 weeks.
