Are Incinerating Toilets A Good Idea?

Blog

With all the modern technology advances, an incinerating toilet ranks in the list of great inventions. You could use one if you are living in a remote area such as a fishing shack, cabin, camp, or accessory building. You won't need to have a regular toilet in your house because with this invention, you can be the owner of an electric or gas incinerating toilet.

Living in an area where you don't need to have a standard water closet or have a sewer or septic system, this is a sterile way to incinerate human waste into clean ash. The unit requires less room and less care and maintenance to facilitate its use. You will eliminate the need to have a crew come to your home to fix the plumbing in the house or repair and clean out the septic tank.

Electric Toilets

An electric unit requires no plumbing or water. The only requirement is a 120v outlet and a three-inch exhaust pipe exit outside the home. The unit has a bowl and a pedal on the floor. You need to place a bowl liner in prior to each use to keep the bowl clean. A holding tank is used for the bowl dumping procedure and burns the waste at specified intervals. It is similar to a catalytic converter to control the odor and exhaust.

Propane and Natural Gas Toilets

Gas toilets do not have a bowl and are more like the older version of an outhouse. This unit is not as desirable as an electric toilet because you only have an opening with a pit below. You need to look into the hole and spray a foam layer over the waste. They require more work and inspection but can be used in areas where an electric toilet cannot be used. If you are in an area where there is no power, this would be a good choice. However, you must also have propane or natural gas resources to use the unit.

These two units may be ideal for customers who have recreational homes or cabins but not for those who desire to have a home with running water. Each unit has its purpose and many find the advances a bit too far out of reality. The final choice depends on whether these incinerating toilets will meet the requirements for your purposes and convenience. Ultimately, it is your decision whether or not this type of toilet fits your needs. To learn more, contact a company like Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Sewer Drain Cleaning

Learning About Plumbing Services For The Kitchen

Hi everyone, my name is Bonita Ploursa. After living in my first home for several years, I decided the kitchen needed a drastic change. I spent the bulk of my time baking cakes, making candy and canning jam in my kitchen. However, cleanup was a nightmare due to the lack of a dishwasher. Furthermore, my sink area could only fit one small pot, which made it impossible to wash out my cookware. I hired a plumber to help route lines for a dishwasher and replace the sink. I also had my plumber install a nice garbage disposal in the sink. The process took very little time and no effort on my part. I would like to discuss this upgrade, and others like it, on my website. I will explore the various ways plumbers move pipes and install appliances throughout the kitchen.
