The cottage's sewage and toilet issues are easily resolved
The treatment of wastewater and household and toilet waste in a
cottage can seem challenging, especially if the cottage is located in an
archipelago. The smartest, easiest and cheapest way is to handle
waste on a cottage site, as long as you do it safely and in an
environmentally friendly way.
More and more time is spent at the cottage, so you want it to be comfortable and
effortless in every way. Long vacations and the proliferation of teleworking enable
almost regular living in a summer home, so functional cottage technology solutions are
At the same time as the demands of the cottage are growing, we also want to cherish
the environment and nature. Waste sorting and wastewater treatment are also
becoming increasingly important at the cottage. The matter is also regulated by law.
Proper waste management
systems are needed,
especially near water, as
nothing pollutant should end
up polluting the environment.
Return of nutrients to the ground
In many cottages, black and gray water goes directly to a closed septic tank, because
untreated water and sludge must not be discharged into nature without proper treatment.
However, from the environmental and economic point of view, the smartest thing would be to
return the nutrients to the land and utilize them locally, which will also eliminate the transport
of sludge for long distanses and keep the nutrient circulation in the islands balanced.
It is also better for the cottage community that the nutrients and load of the
wastewater are treated and then absorbed into the soil on their own property and that
the waste is not transported to a municipal waste treatment plant. The easiest way to
get to both the cottage and the cottage is when the plot has its own composting dry
toilet and the washing water is cleaned on site.
The Biotoilet is an odorless
and easy-care solution for
both the interior of the
cottage and the outbuilding.

The Biotoilet eliminates your worries.
The extensive Biotoilet range has alternatives that are well suited for the outhouse as
well as for indoor use in the cottage.
The toilets in the biological AQ collection are modern, hygienic and easy, as they
compost toilet waste into a small amount of compost in one container.
The AQ bio-toilet turns toilet
waste into compost soil.

Cleaning Gray water without electricity
There are also easy and efficient solutions for treating wash water, ie gray water.
A gray water filter is needed for the cottage, especially in the archipelago, as dirty
water must not end up in the water. Also, in a dryland cottage, discharging wash
water untreated into the ground causes odor nuisance and can attract unwanted
guests, such as rats.
BioBoxes are small gray water filters designed for cottages and holiday homes. They
do not need electricity to operate. After filter treatment, the purified water can be
safely discharged into the environment.
Maintenance is effortless: the filters are cleaned once a year and the filter elements
are replaced every 10 to 15 years. The device itself lasts up to 50-100 years.
The filters in the greywater
filter are cleaned once a year,
but the filter elements are
only replaced every 10 to 15
years. No peat or moss is
used in the filter, so operating
costs remain low.
Composting reduces the amount of mixed waste and odor nuisance
Separation and composting of bio-waste effectively removes odor from garbage
bags. Composting also significantly reduces the amount of mixed waste in the
cottage, so there is no need to have rubbish off the cottage site all the time.
Composting is nature's own method of utilizing organic waste, as it breaks down food
residues and other biowaste into nutrients. The same decomposition happens
everywhere in nature all the time.
In the composter, decomposition is efficient, and at the same time harmful bacteria
are destroyed. The composter ensures that the disintegrating microbes have
everything they need at their disposal, such as nutrients, air, moisture and heat.
The composter converts the
biowaste into soil without odor
nuisance and at the same time
returns the nutrients back to
