There are also easy and efficient solutions for treating wash water, ie gray water.

A gray water filter is needed for the cottage, especially in the archipelago, as dirty water must not end up in the water. Also, in a dryland cottage, discharging wash water untreated into the ground causes odor nuisance and can attract unwanted guests, such as rats.

BioBoxes are small gray water filters designed for cottages and holiday homes. They do not need electricity to operate. After filter treatment, the purified water can be safely discharged into the environment. 

Maintenance is effortless: the filters are cleaned once a year and the filter elements are replaced every 10 to 15 years. The device itself lasts up to 50-100 years.

Composting reduces the amount of mixed waste and odor nuisance

Separation and composting of bio-waste effectively removes odor from garbage bags. Composting also significantly reduces the amount of mixed waste in the cottage, so there is no need to have rubbish off the cottage site all the time.

Composting is nature’s own method of utilizing organic waste, as it breaks down food residues and other biowaste into nutrients. The same decomposition happens everywhere in nature all the time.

In the composter, decomposition is efficient, and at the same time harmful bacteria are destroyed. The composter ensures that the disintegrating microbes have everything they need at their disposal, such as nutrients, air, moisture and heat.
