water and waste
There are a number of solutions available whether you are thinking of being fully off grid, or if your highest priority is the environment we have a system. Fresh water is pressurised mains from the shore, hot water via hot water cylinder 240v. The used water is then managed as follows. (a) Holding tank under the houseboat. this would be evacuated by a visiting waste lorry when needed. (b) Klagester system that processes the black water rendering the water safe with no offensive odors, returning it to the river clean. (c) Pump system that takes the waste water off the house boat to the mains sewerage. Any waste option can be paired with a rainwater harvesting system to keep water usage to a minimum.
