Frequently asked questions
Answers to the most frequently asked questions about Pacto are listed below. If you cannot find what you are looking for please contact an agent or distributor.
Does liquid and solid waste have to be separated in Pacto?
No. Unlike in many composting toilets, all waste is stored and disposed of together. This has the advantage of not requiring the user to dispose of large quantities of liquid waste, a process which demands a lot of water.
Does Pacto have any usage restrictions?
No. Pacto can be used by an unlimited number of people within a very short period – or ocasionally by one person over a period of many months.
Is it really safe to incinerate waste and polyethen?
Yes. Incinerating organic waste matter is completely safe. The polyethen foil has been specially developed for use in Pacto and only gives off water and carbon dioxide when burnt.
Does Pacto have to be kept at a certain temperature?
No, Pacto works in any climate, hot or cold, without the need for ventilation or heating. There are well-functioning Pacto® toilets all over the world, from the cold of Antarctica to the heat of Africa.
How do I know it works?
Pacto has been widely used across the world for many years. It is the enduring choice of consumers, private companies and government – one recent example is Nordic Battle Group, a European Union rapid deployment battlegroup which has selected Pacto for their sanitation needs.
