$1000 or Under Composting Toilets

Compost for Gardens$1000 or under composting toilets for boats, cabins, and RV’s, are a clean, safe, affordable, and environmentally friendly means of indoor sanitation. These toilets are very similar to regular toilets. They’re designed slightly different from normal toilets due to reaction chambers in the bottom of the toilets or at a remote location. Some of them also have divided bowls to separate liquids and solids. Composting toilets use composting media like, worms, water, sand or other agents to break down waste in self contained or local reactors. The good part of all this is that these composting agents are all natural and cheap.

$1000 or Under – Priceless!

While you can get composting toilets for $1000 or less, they come in a wide range of styles and prices. Some “systems” can cost more than $2500. Prices vary based on the type of toilet. The good news is that you can find one at a very reasonable price for just about any application. $1000 or less isn’t a lot of money for the convenience composting toilets provide. How much is it worth it to you not to have to make trips outside in the dark to use the bathroom? That’s priceless!

Get Cash Back

What ever you pay for a composting toilet, it’s possible to make your money back and even more. You can get a return on your money by using the compost from your toilet as fertilizer in you garden. The money you save on fertilizer offsets the cost of the toilet. This way the toilet would pay for itself over time. There’s also the matter of saving water. Waterless and low water toilets conserve water and save you money on water.

Bells and Whistles

Even composting toilet systems can come with bells and whistles. They can be portable, compact, hard piped, low water, waterless, electric, or non-electric sanitation systems. Either way, you get efficient indoor plumbing at an affordable price.


The obvious benefit of portable composting toilets is the ability to easily move them from place to place.

Compact toilets are space savers. They work well anywhere where space is limited like on a boat.

Hard piped systems move waste material to a remote reactor where the material is broken down out of sight and out of mind. You can see, or smell, where that would leave a breath of fresh air.

Waterless and low water composters use water to separate waste material and to help with the decomposition process. Both are water savers.

Electric and nonelectric systems use agitators to mix waste and composting agents to promote even decomposition. Some electric systems use batteries to power motor driven agitators. Some non-electrics use manual hand cranks for agitation.



The resulting end-product of composting toilets should be a stable soil-like material called ‘humus,’ which legally must be either buried or removed by a licensed seepage hauler in accordance with state and local regulations in the United States.


Worms, Sand, Sawdust, Water – Composting Agents

Sand, water, sawdust, and water are a few of the composting agents used to aide in making compost called Humus. These media are often used in combination. All of them are very inexpensive and easy to come by. Worms are by far the most interesting of the bunch. But it only makes sense to use one of natures’ creatures to break down material for compost. One great benefit of all of the composting agents is that they all help conserve water. Composting toilets under $1000 can be found at reputable Internet or brick and mortar retailers.
