SEWAGE SOLUTIONS

Sewage solutions

Author - N.Grant & M.Moodie
Excellent book from experts. After explaining the nutrient cycle and scale of the problem, Sewage Solutions looks at disposal methods for ‘black’ & ‘grey’ water - from septic tank to compost toilet, with explanations on how each works. It casts a measured eye over the ‘reed bed’ solution for waste disposal and often with better solutions.

HOW TO SHIT IN THE WOODS

How to shit in the woods

Author - K Meyer
A customer favourite - explains exactly what it says in the title. Learn how to go properly when outside. An American book but worth it for the crop of 'worst experience' stories and how and where to use a spade.
Buy for £ 6.99

THE COMPOSTING TOILET SYSTEM BOOK

The composting toilet system book

Author - Porto & Steinfield
Composting toilets are probably the best way to deal with human waste especially on the smaller scale. Far from being just holes in the ground with nasty niffs they are now sophisticated pieces of kit. A timely, comprehensive book. Recommended
Buy for £ 19.99

THE HUMANURE HANDBOOK

The humanure handbook

Author - J.C.Jenkins

Wonderful irreverent guide to composting human manure. Some terrible jokes mask a well researched manual looking at all the ways of dealing with human manure without using drinking water to flush it away. A must for all alternative coffee tables - can be sent in plain brown wrapper.
Buy for £ 13.95

SEPTIC TANKS - AN OVERVIEW

Septic tanks - an overview

Author - Moody & Grant

The best short tract on septic tanks.

FLOWFORMS (HUMAN WASTE, THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING)

Flowforms (human waste, the univers and everything)

Author - Mark Moodie

Dense text that very much repays a second reading from a man who builds systems to deal with aforementioned waste. Good intro to the philosophical side of the Biodynamic movement and the work of Rudolf Steiner and others, leading to the thinking behind the structure of the wonderful water sculptures/revitalisers known as Flowforms.
