Why compost toilets illegal in my (PLAC3R County CA) county when some are NSF rated? This blows my mind. I own an acre of land, I could eliminate all over the place and nobody would know. I really don't want to pay a septic company (cant DIY, required for sand filters) $25,000 for a sand filter system to be installed in my unabsorbant dirt!
Aside from moving, what do I do? Take out a hard money loan, live in septic debt for 5 years in my trailer? And think of the dollar bill I flush everytime I eliminate as long as I live?
I am down in southern California and I looked into using a compost toilet, the main thing I found in the code is there has to be a septic back up in case the compost toilet fails. One of those way the department that makes you sad gets their way. I saw a cabin down from my place that has a porta potty in the yard and asked about why it was there, they explained they have a compost toilet in their cabin but were allowed to have the porta potty as their backup. It just sits there locked and they probably just bought they shell. Hope this helps hang in there
