Living With Enteron

Life onboard with an Enteron System

Imagine how nice it would be not to have to think about the subject toilet waste water. Just using a toilet as you would in a house or flat. No lengthy explanations to guests on board and no worries about when to get the holding tank emptied.
The operation of our mini sewage treatment plant on board yachts and houseboats ensures complete independence from land-based waste management systems. There are a few good Housekeeping rules to follow:

?
  • The Enteron is a living system. Don’t use a multi-layer toilet paper or wet wipes. This will quickly clog the system.
  • Cleaners, detergents and scent enhancers can be a threat to the cultures of bacteria in the bioreactor.
  • When cleaning the toilet, divert the flow away from the Enteron and flush through with fresh water before redirecting flow back to the Enteron.
  • Should unpleasant odors occur, there is something is wrong with the treatment plant. In most cases, the bacteria in the reactor are dead e.g. after a standstill caused by lack of use. The bacteria have simply starved. A simple re-dose with the bacteria culture in its dissolvable bag, flushed down the toilet will get things going again.

Energy Consumption.

  • The daily consumption of a standard system, designed for two people, is about 17Ah (12V)
  • Ventilation pump: 600 mA, depending on time 50%, 12 hx 0.6 A = 7.2 Ah
  • Pumping: 24 x daily 1 min A 10 A = 8 Ah
  • Pumping: 6 x daily 2 min A 10 A = 2 Ah

TOTAL: 17 Ah - This can easily be generated by a solar panel or wind turbine directly into the vessel’s battery bank.
