Tiny house incinerator toilet

Its a bit of a gross topic but the Tiny House incinerator toilet is becoming more and more popular along tiny house owners. There are many debates on the online community about which one is the better and which is the best option. To be honest its all comes down to one simple answer.

Tiny house incinerator toilet vs the traditional flush toilet is more affordable, easier to fit, not to mention the space you saving.

Yes its all boil down to the space you have available. Small appliances like this could save you a great deal of space and money along the way. Obviously we all used to traditional toilets one way or the other, where you just sit down do your business and with a flush the “problem” disappear.

In reality when its comes to a tiny house you have loads of obstacles what you have to manoeuvre around regarding the toilet business.

Living On the Road

1.If you tiny house is not permanently sited then you most likely will have to have a collection system (septic tank) which will require a regular emptying and disinfecting.

2.The water usage is also an issue when you not sited as you rely on your stored water, rather than using a main connection.

Believe me nothing is more of putting then rolling your septic tank to the collection points, or getting someone pumping it out for extra $$$. Depending on how many people live in the tiny house, and obviously how much time you spend in them it could lead to more hassle and joy.
