Kildwick - the UK's premier composting toilet manufacturer

Kildwick design and manufacture compost toilets and components for people to build their own compost toilets.  From the start we were lead by 'research and development' which drive innovation and we continue to innovate with many 'firsts' to our name already.  Our latest is a self-assembly compost toilet - the 'Konstrukt' - "...if Ikea designed compost toilets".

We are a customer-focused business and are happy to help answer any queries you may have whilst selecting, installing or using our products - just give us a call or email us.  We even launched a online user-driven support group on Facebook three years ago which now has over 4,000 members and many 'active' online offering guidance and support too those looking for, or using, compost toilets in their off-grid location.

Blog Posts

If you have a contribution you think would add to the blog, we are happy to post 'guest author' pieces too. We'll be doing some video's soon and will post in an equivalent 'vlog' section.

If you haven't already joined - we have an excellent Facebook group "Compost Toilets for Boats and Off Grid Living" on which you'll usually find us and any number of active compost toilet users to answer questions and offer support. You will need to request to 'join' the group but only have to answer a couple of simple questions to make sure you are 'real'!!

Composting Toilet for Boats...

Boats need to retain the urine inside the toilet as most waterways management organisations forbid the pumping of urine into their water.

Kildwick compost toilets offer significant benefits over other toilets in that we:

  • Include a self-contained, easily-emptied urine container
  • Have bases that are 100% leakproof guaranteed for life.
  • Have a range of flexible ventilation options to suit your specific project.

We have three models to suit space and budget.

Composting Toilet for Vans...

Kildwick toilets are becoming the toilet of choice for self-build or camper conversions because:

  • You have the choice for a built-in urine container or urine feed to a large chassis-mounted tank
  • You have the choice of standard or compact toilet
  • A choice of ventilation fittings to make venting easy and suit your vehicle and needs.

Move away from the use of heavy, cumbersome and smelly cassette toilets and become more independent of infrastructure and free of unpleasant emptying tasks.

Composting Toilet for Cabins etc

Our toilets are not only stylish and robust but offer you the option to have the urine diverted to a container or soak-pit located to the rear or under the toilet.

We even have a 'long-drop' toilet enabling you to have a larger solids container (such as a 'wheelie-bin' beneath your toilet for less frequent emptying.

For Glamping sites the compost toilet is perfect - we have a disposable modesty flap and tank liners helping to deliver improved (& visible hygiene) and fast customer turn-around times.
