2000 & Excel
Cottage, East of Parry Sound, Ontario
Indeed, we do think of you as friends for your creative marketing
style, your superb product and personable sales staff.
Our cottage is water access only and we only obtained electricity
during the past decade. We had propane, an outhouse and water carried
by bucket or hand-pumped from the lake. With electrical power extended
to our remote location, we were above, in June 2000, to add an indoor
bathroom. We installed a Sun-Mar Centrex 2000, with which we are
delighted. (Caution - teach small children that this toilet is not
like the ones in the city ---- our grandson flooded the unit by
keeping his foot on the pedal waiting for it to fill up!)
The Centrex is wonderful from Victoria Day weekend to perhaps Thanksgiving.
But, since we are northeast of Parry Sound, plumbing cannot be used
before ice-out or after freeze-up. So-o-o-o in May 2003, we built
a beautiful little building to house the Sun-Mar Excel, a waterfree
electric model, for use in April, May, October, and November.
greeting cottage visitors, most owners say something like, "Come
see my new boat" or "Come see my new deck". We say,
"Come see the new outhouse!". And it is truly lovely,
all insulated and paneled in pine. It boasts a "Dutch"
door to view the lake, a handy shelf for the coffee mug and a magazine
rack for "Cottage Life" and "Canadian
Geographic". It truly does not smell. It is easy to keep
clean and fresh. In summer, it is used daily to ease the pressure
on the Centrex when there are lots of folks about.
We are very concerned about the environment and endeavor to make
minimum impact on our pristine lake and forest. Our choice of Sun-Mar
installations is consistent with this goal.
can hardly wait to be featured in the next Sun-Mar brochure! We
are enclosing photos of our toilet(s) complete with a "scratch
'n sniff" option (to duplicate the effect of the scratch and
sniff area of the Morgan's photograph, smell your computer monitor
screen - don't scratch it though - that will be what a Sun-Mar smells
like - Ed.).
You can be assured that we invite all visitors to view our toilets.
If they are interested, we eagerly give them the honest poop on
Sun-Mar composting toilets.
