For many garden room buyers, adding a toilet is both a convenience and a way to create a self-contained extension of their homes. Many garden room designers can incorporate a cloakroom with toilet facilities.
However, challenges can arise when trying to connect this new toilet to the mains supplies for water and sewerage. A conventional toilet, which requires water to flush, means that both the water source and waste disposal need careful consideration.
If your garden room is close to your main house, it's typically straightforward to connect the toilet to the mains services. But if it's situated farther away, this installation can be more complex and become costly.
Is an Eco Toilet Right for Your Garden Room?
Often referred to as waterless, dry, or composting toilets, eco toilets present a viable option for garden rooms. Contrary to the misconception of a rudimentary wooden box with a lingering smell, modern eco toilets resemble their conventional counterparts. They have proper seating, require no additional materials post-use, and are odor-free!
Separett is a leading brand in this domain, frequently used by Garden2Office in their designs. They can also retrofit these in existing garden rooms. Another notable name in the eco toilet sphere is Cinderella. Their incineration toilet, known for its sleek design, as showcased in a garden office project by A Room in the Garden.
For those seeking further information or guidance on the Separett range, WooWoo, the official UK distributor, is your go-to expert. Their sector knowledge ensures they can recommend the perfect model tailored to your needs.
What about smell?
One might assume that storing waste within the toilet would lead to unpleasant odours. However, eco toilets come equipped with fans and vents, ensuring any odours are directed out of the garden room.
Do you see anything?
No one wants to see waste upon lifting the toilet seat. Thankfully, eco toilets incorporate a screen system that keeps waste out of sight.
Just press the button
Waterless toilets don't have water to flush away the waste. Instead, they are connected to the electrics and the press of a button 'flushes' the loo.
