I have lived in my THOW for approximately 1 year, after making the decision to purchase an incinerating toilet. Although the Ecoash Cinderella comfort electric toilet was a big outlay in cost, I consider the purchase to be one of the best things I have done. Not only is the product superb, but Brian and his team are one of the best and easiest companies I have dealt with. He goes over and beyond with regard to customer service, and nothing is a problem.
The toilet itself .. well I can't speak highly enough of it. Looks like a conventional toilet from outside, eco friendly, uses toilet paper, no yukky separation of solids and liquids, no smell, no getting rid of buckets of you know what.. and everyone who rents land for Tiny Homes know that owners are not so happy about composting toilets. A easy clean and a cupful of ash in rubbish every week or so makes maintenance a breeze. I have the electric model, which draws small wattage from my 16 amp power, although there is also a gas model available. Points out of 10 = 11
Before you make any toilet decisions, talk to Brian, and Ecoash.. they are the best, in my view.
"The end result is far better than we had hoped and we are very happy. This is clearly an option for people in our situation and we would recommend this worthwhile solution to anyone."

"We first heard about the Cinderella toilet system on RNZ during an interview with a young NZ woman living in the far north of Norway. She explained that because of the permafrost this toilet system had been developed and used for many years in that region. We have been living off grid for 30 years and during this time have had firstly a long drop and then for the last 13 years A SunMar composting toilet. The SunMar worked adequately in the summer, not so well in the winter, and, of course, you still need to deal with the waste. Hearing about this system was a “eureka” moment, and we were so pleased, and a bit surprised that this was available in NZ and we had not heard of it.
After talking with you, Brian, we realised two things. We needed the gas version and that by using the urinal we could save a lot of gas, and therefore make this cost effective for us. It took us 12 hours to install the toilet, sticking to the very clear instructions, we are in our 70’s and we did have challenging moments. The end result is far better than we had hoped and we are very happy. This is clearly an option for people in our situation and we would recommend this worthwhile solution to anyone."
In addition - "We appreciated the extra effort you went to when we were having issues with the power supply, especially you making the trip to Hokianga in such terrible weather conditions. Your patience and determination to solve the problem is commendable. The solution we are now using, the battery, solar panel and solar charge controller is working really well, and knowing that the toilet goes into “hibernation” mode solved our final issue.
We think you have a great business and a wonderful product. Please let the Head Office in Norway know how pleased we are with your work and their product."
