Electrics and ChemicalsElectrics and Chemicals
We produce our own electricity using solar and wind which means we have to be very careful using it. We do have a diesel generator but it is extremely expensive to run and we don't really want to install electricity meters (the per unit cost would shock you at 70p per unit). So, to try end encourage reduced electricity usage we have installed 6Amp breakers which is equivalent to 1.4KW, 1400 Watt breakers. This will enable you to use lights, fridge, low power kettle, water pump, battery charging, microwave but will not allow for high current draws like many heaters. So, no electric space heaters, high power water heaters or house hold style kettles. For heating and cooking please use gas. . Most truma water heaters will be fine but we'd really appreciate it if you used gas and switched things off when not in use.

Our eco farm has a sewage treatement plant that uses naturally occurring bacteria to break down waste and feeds the clean water into a pond. So we have to be extremely careful not to upset the balance. It's like a brewery with yeast on top and gets very upset if the microbes are killed off by any anti bacterial products.

Traditional blue chemical loo additives all kill bacteria as do anti bacterial hand soaps, anti bac washing up liquid, pink flush additive, etc. Please do not use these onsite.

Instead, you will need to use an approved bio toilet additive. Not all chemicals listed as green or eco can be used here.

We have also recently (2022) found what is a superb 100% natural product called SolBio. It smells wonderful and even contains no dye or anti bacterial properties. But instead contains microbes that devour your waste and gives off a nice smell. We now stock this as a product. At first glance it seems expensive but it is equal cost, per dose, to most other products. We have bought it in bulk and offer it to you at bulk buy cost of £14 per 0.8L bag.

Some customers simply don't use a chemical additive or use our on site toilets which are accessible 24x7 and have hot running water. (no shower)

Please ensure that your toilet cassette is free of anti bacterial chemicals before arriving. We cannot dispose of chemicals onsite.
