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

Our fastest ever compost toilet installation

New Waterless Toilet for Mudlarks Community Garden in Hertfordshire

Fast compost toilet installation

This waterless toilet for Mudlarks Community Garden in Ware, Hertfordshire took just 7 hours to install and fit out.

NatSol supplied all the toilet components, the timber building and certain specialist tools to help complete the job.

The Mk 3 Full Access toilet represents the state of the art in waterless toilets and incorporates the new stainless steel pedestal and GRC floor hatches described in previous posts. Internal walls are factory templated to make fitting out really easy. …

The Mk 3 Full Access Toilet is now available

Our latest composting toilet is now out and about.

Compost toilet Dagenham, London

The first of our new design full access compost toilets has just been installed on an allotment site in Dagenham, East London for the organisation ‘Growing Communities’. As previously reported, the changes are refinements and the proven functionality remains unchanged.

With a stainless steel pedestal and GRC hatches that blend in with the floor surface this is a very smart product. The pedestal is less bulky and this creates even more wheelchair turning space.

Despite being made of stainless steel, the new urine separating pedestal is actually lighter than the previous GRP model. The urine separation plate is now part of the pedestal which makes it easier to remove and service.

We are pleased to have a number of installations in the London area. You can see a map showing where our waterless toilets are installed here.

The best compost toilet just got better

Small changes to our compost toilets give a fresh look

Stainless steel urine diverting compost toilet pedestalDesigning the new stainless steel pedestal gave us the chance to revisit the floor design of our twin vault toilets as a new mould was required to accommodate the slimmer pedestal. The MK2 used standard galvanised steel inspection covers for the resting vault pedestal position and for compost removal hatches. These have worked very well but the fiddly locking screws are easily lost and, well, they look like inspection chamber covers!

GRC compost removal hatches

Compost toilet hatchThe new hatches are moulded from the same glass reinforced cement (GRC) as the compost chamber and building floor. They give a neater appearance and an easy to sweep and mop surface. Removal is with a special lifting key and being made of GRC they will not corrode. However if you have our previous model, there is no need to worry about spares as they are a standard item that we will continue to stock (although we have yet to see any significant problems with corrosion).

As with the floor they can be left in their natural state or sealed with stone-oil or floor-paint to suit the required decor and usage.

It has been great working with BCM GRC who manufacture our chambers. They have taken great care in getting all the details just right and are, we think, rightly proud of the result!

Our new compost toilet website

Waterless allotment compost toilet by NatSolOur new website was launched on the 5th November. We hope you will agree that it retains all the clarity of the old, much complimented site whilst making certain things easier to find and adding some new features such as testimonials and the ability to view toilet installations according to product type.

Please let us know what you think.

Stainless steel pedestal

contemporary design compost toilet pedestalWe are very excited about our new urine diverting, stainless steel compost toilet pedestal. this will be standard from January 2013. The original GRP model has proved robust and functional, attributes that are retained in the new design. We hope you will agree that the new pedestal is rather good looking.
