In most months we have news worthy of posting but we don’t always get around to putting it up – as you can readily see by viewing the dates below!

If you know something about a NatSol toilet which seems worthy of a post on this page please let us know.


£ signWe are increasing prices a little this year. We haven’t had a general price increase for several years.

During that period the exchange rate has changed and this affects the cost of some raw materials. There have also been increases in the minimum wage which impact on the companies which manufacture components for us.

We have continued to improve our products and to offer the same high quality after sales support.

So prices are rising by about 3% from 1st March 2018 but we will honour quotes issued before that date until the 30th June 2018.

Golf club sales increasing

Morton Hall Golf Course

NatSol toilets are becoming popular on golf courses. The example shown here is at Mortonhall Golf Club, Edinburgh.

The toilet is our standard Full Access toilet but incorporated here in a building which was designed by DRD Architects Ltd.

The toilet is particularly popular with female golfers.

NatSol toilets win UK award

Loo of the Year Award 2017Earlier in the year The Royal Parks entered their new accessible toilets in the Isabella Plantation, Richmond Park for the Loo of the Year Awards. A couple of months ago we learned that the toilets had won a Platinum Award and at the Award Ceremony in early December we discovered that they had won the UK Best Eco Toilets Award.

Naturally we are delighted and would like to say how much we enjoyed working with The Royal Parks and the design team.

Call of Nature

Call of Nature

Open Air magazine published an article, Call of Nature, by Andrew Warren and Kate de Selincourt in their June 2016 edition. The magazine is sold to businesses carrying on outdoor activities such as glamping, outdoor events and al fresco weddings.

The article takes a broad look at waterless toilets and provides a checklist of things you should find out if you are thinking of buying one.

Exclusive Golf Club

We are delighted to have supplied a remote waterless toilet for an exclusive golf club near Ascot. On a large course you can be some distance from the club house. Interrupting play to ‘pay a visit’ is almost certainly undesirable. Installing a NatSol composting toilet by the ninth hole could be the solution you were looking for. No water, no power, no freezing risk, no odours, low maintenance and very low running costs.

Compost toilet maintenance

Aware that our compost toilet instruction booklet shows our old MK 1 pedestal, we decided to visit Hollow Ash Shepherd’s Hut Holidays for a photoshoot now that their peak camping season is over.

It is always good to have an excuse to visit installations and to meet our customers for feedback. We also like to see what people have done to customise their toilets and this is a fine example!

The shepherd hut based toilet building is looking great after two seasons of campers.

Waterless Toilet System for Busy Sites

Richmond park waterless toilets

In 2012 NatSol was chosen to design a toilet system for a new accessible facility in the Isabella Plantation, Richmond Park, London. The toilets opened to the public in Sept 2014 and are working well. We are monitoring performance and are looking to develop this approach for other high use sites.

Toilets for an SSSI

The Isabella Plantation is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) with high ground water and heavy clay soil where no foul discharge to ground is permitted. Waterless toilets seemed like the obvious choice but we have long held reservations about composting toilets as an appropriate technology for very high use public sites because of the need to manually remove compost. This has not been a problem on lower use sites. Even busy allotments produce surprisingly little solid waste thanks to the twin vault process.

In consultation with The Royal Parks (TRP) and the design team of engineers and architects we developed a waterless system with individual tanks beneath the toilet pedestals. These can be emptied by tanker four or five times a year.

Odourless loos

The waterless toilets are ventilated via the specially designed stainless steel pedestals removing odour at source. The air is drawn through a biological odour filter developed by NatSol. The filter was included to ensure odour-free operation in an area sheltered by trees. The extra resistance of the filter meant that we needed to use an energy efficient fan rather than our usual passive vent chimney that has proved so successful on our dry composting toilets.

In addition to the five toilet pedestals the gents includes AIRFLUSH® Urinals developed by NatSol Technical Director Nick Grant and supplied by the Green Building Store. GBS also provided help with the efficient ventilation design.

The design fulfils TRP’s requirement for a low water use toilet block with excellent odour control, no site discharges, low management requirement and infrequent emptying.

NatSol Compost Toilets is Ten this Year!

Ten 10 years of supplying toilets for off mains sites

Now that we have recovered from the shock of how fast 10 years can fly by we are enjoying this important milestone. During this period we have been pleased to provide wheelchair accessible toilet facilities for an increasingly diverse range of off-mains sites from allotments and village churches to public parks. After ten years and over 400 compost toilet installations, we are very confident in the concept, which remains largely unchanged.
