About the Author
David Del Porto has sold and serviced thousands of several models of composting toilets since 1972. He has also designed several systems, starting with systems for parks and for Greenpeace in the Pacific islands. Today, these same designs have been modified for a wide variety of settings, including upscale resorts that demand systems that are non-polluting, are easy to maintain and feature attractive one-pint-flush toilets. His composting toilet and graywater system designs are in homes and public sites worldwide. He has also helped write regulations and performance standards for these systems.
