Sun-Mar toilets are the gold standard in composting toilet solutions worldwide
There is only one performance standard for composting toilets in North America. This is National Sanitation Foundation NSF/ANSI Standard #41.
Sun-Mar is certified by the NSF under this stringent standard. Testing is conducted for 6 months at a NSF recognized, independent testing laboratory under a strict test protocol.
To be certified, the unit must operate odor-free at maximum capacity (including overload conditions) and produce clean, safe compost.
What you need to know about Composting Toilets
As additional verification, NSF obtains and tests additional compost samples from randomly selected field operations, and conducts interviews with the users of these units. For verification, please check the NSF website.
NSF International is a not for profit, non-governmental organization. It is the world leader in standards development, product certification, education and risk management for public health and safety, and for 75 years has been committed to public health, safety, and protection of the environment.
