Everybody Poops

One of the most asked questions I get about my Tiny is, “So do you have a septic tank?” Or the more direct version, “Where do you poop?” 

So allow me to introduce my toilet! 

This is the Nature’s Head composting toilet. I read a bunch of reviews on different composting toilets and I ended up going with this one for a few different reasons. I found the review from the Wynn’s blog to be super helpful in even realizing what to consider. 

The NH toilet is small for toilets of its type, which is great for my tiny bathroom. It has a little fan in the composting container which helps to keep it from generating an odor. The fan is hooked up to a vent on the outside of my house. It’s very quiet! Finally, it separates the two types of waste. You know, the #1 and the #2. This makes emptying the waste easier and keeps away odors. 

So, how does it work?! Really, you just sit down and do your business. I have to empty the #1 tank about once a week and the #2 tank about once a month. 

Here’s what the #2 tank looks like pretty much with or without the #2. It’s full of peat moss to help the decomposing process along. And that silver bar is to stir it up after you go. 😜

I made compost bins out of my old tires so that my toilet generated compost can finish composting. Since I am a full time user, it takes a little while to complete the process once I empty it.

If you have any questions, leave it in a comment and I’ll do my best to answer!

  1. Great post Ericca! Tough subject but handled very well. Please tell us about your appliances and how you are making out with the solar and battery system. Are your appliances AC or DC? What all do you have for appliances? How about heat in the winter? AC? Does it get hot in there in summer? Do you have wifi? What about the land you are on? Do you lease? How big is your fridge? Does its size influence your grocery shopping? Do you have a dishwasher? Is it quiet at night? Do you have neighbors? How about hot water? Do you prepare meals much or eat at restaurants? How do you do your laundry? Where do you keep your bike? These are just a few of my many questions. Hope all is well out there! Be well.

  2. You are in a great position to be able to finish the composting process on your land. I’m going completely mobile for an unknown length of time, without power for the first little while, which is complicating my own toilet “issues”. πŸ™‚ That dratted fan!
    So I don’t know what to do in the meantime.
    Glad you got a good one, thanks for the review..
