Stainless steel collar for dry toilets

Ideal for the self-builder

Registered design. Made in France.

The indispensable accessory in order to avoid leakage between the toilet seat and the bucket.

Size: diameter 28 cm x H 10 cm.

The upper rim is equipped with a small 5mm outer lip for snug fitting of the collar.

Why use a stainless steel collar in your compost toilets ?

Just over ten years ago, when we built our first compost toilets, the need for something that would seal the space between the seat and the bucket became apparent, in order to avoid any leakage between the two. At the time, we salvaged a piece of swimming pool liner that we stapled onto the flat surface underneath the seat.

We found this quite useful and practical, but over time, the liner began to turn yellow and the staples rusted, giving the installation a somewhat off-putting allure. Undaunted, we rose to the challenge.

When we decided to go professional, it was clear to us that we had no wish to offer products that had such a short life span. Our aim was to popularize compost toilets, and we knew that the practical and esthetic aspect of these little boxes were of great important if we were to convince the most recalcitrant.

We designed a collar that needed no fitting points, which would have left the installation prone to rust, in a material that met our particular needs.

Stainless steel is rust resistant, does not deteriorate, is easy to clean, and does not absorb odors.

With use, we found that adding a collar had an additional advantage.

It optimizes the useful capacity of the recipient. If you opt for a bucket whose upper rim touches the seat, you may be able to prevent leakage between the seat and the bucket, but you will never completely fill the bucket. You will always leave at least 10 cm space to avoid having your bottom in the sawdust. Consequently, your container will only ever be filled to 2/3 or 3/4 of its capacity.

Given the cost of containers (especially stainless steel ones), acquiring a collar turns out to be a lot cheaper than buying a 20 liter stainless steel bucket only to use, at most, 15.

Our 10 cm collar also means that there is no need to raise the bucket up 32cm (in the case of the mostly commonly used), to achieve a comfortable seat height at around 45cm (Standard WC seats are at approximately 40cm)

For all these reasons, with a view to quality, Lecopot systematically installs a stainless steel collar on all their models, but also offers them for separate sale to all self-building compost toilet users, to help them build good quality loos, and equally to those who already have composts loos that they wish to upgrade, and remedy the problems mentioned above.

    Produit de qualité et conforme à la description du site. Seule remarque : le trou de perçage serait plutôt de 27,5 cm et non de 28 cm ! (Ayant percé un emplacement de 28 cm, il y a du jeu entre le rebord du plateau bois et la bavette... ce qui n'aurait pas été le cas à 27,5 cm. Cependant une fois fixée avec du silicone, la bavette est bien en place, ouf !)
