NEW Waterless Toilet “Automatic” function upgrade
This upgrade provides an automatic system that turns a set number of times a day no matter where it is.
It is powered from Kimberley’s 12V system and uses a minute amount of power.
Composting/separating toilet advantages:
Composting/separating toilet disadvantages:
80 uses are typical for solids tank
Consumes 12v electric power for fan and heater; which although small is still required.
Better for the environment than discharging natural waste.
Capacity constrained to about 80 uses and then depending on temperature system, there has to be a delay before emptying
Easy to operate.
You have to empty the liquids more regularly than the solids.
Lowest cost to use
No flushing or pumping (operates via gravity).
Almost impossible to clog.
Few moving parts, and only one (vent) hose.
Lower weight and less space than a toilet-pump-tank setup.
Chemical toilet advantages:
Chemical toilet disadvantages:
25-30 uses are typical for solids
Consumes 12v electric power for flush.
Uses liquid chemicals or sachets so has a cost of use.
Capacity constrained to about 25-30 uses and then needs emptying
Can use “reclaimed water” from selected grey water tanks to “clean” the bowl of paper and residue.
If you use for liquids as well then number of uses reduces.
No active flushing or pumping required though (operates via gravity).
Can only be dumped where chemical treated waste is accepted
Few moving parts, and no vent hose.
Vacuum toilet advantages:
Vacuum toilet disadvantages:
35-40 uses are typical for solids
Consumes 12v electric power for vacuum and pump out.
No odour at all, and therefore no vent hose.
Higher capital cost
Capacity constrained to about 35-40 uses and then needs emptying
No cost to operate (other than 12v power for vacuum pump)
Environmentally preferred as waste has no chemicals
No active flushing or pumping required
Vacuum system and pump out system uses diaphragm pumps so that waste does not actually pass through a pump blade or shaft
Can be emptied anywhere that will accept waste as there are no harmful chemicals to the environment
Macerating toilet advantages:
Macerating toilet disadvantages:
Perfect for marine when plenty of water available (raw water can be used)
Prone to odour as no chemicals and no vacuum. Needs perfect seals.
No chemicals used
Waste travels through macerator so higher chance of blades/shaft blocking. Very unpleasant for maintenance.
Heaviest and least efficient system on land as a lot of water is needed for flushing; so large water tanks and holding tanks provide low capacity for no of uses.
Lower capacity for weight and size to any other system.
Consumes 12v electric power for pump.
Kimberley won’t offer a maceration system as the amount of water needed per flush is around 4litres for an odorless environment. This is too wasteful with resources and still leaves piping open to residue. The maintenance of the maceration system is unpleasant, as the waste MUST pass through the pump blades, which is a source of problems.
