The plumbing system is installed and although it is a somewhat complicated parallel system Dalton Joudrey Plumbing and Heating did a great job.

Harmony House is plumbed for hook-up to regular pressurized water ( ie: a well with a pump or a garden hose) and from there can feed directly to an approved septic disposal system, like the ones found in campgrounds etc.

It also has a fully contained system with fresh water tanks that can be filled, a 12V marine pump to create pressure for the kitchen sink, the bathroom sink and full shower. Plus a grey water tank for storing grey water until it can be emptied at an approved facility.

All of these systems give all the comforts of home ( toilet, hot water, kitchen and bathroom sinks) whether Harmony House is hooked up to pressurized water or not. There is no black water system has Harmony House has a composting toilet.

Hot water is provided by an on-demand propane heater. This took quite a while to source, as we needed a four season heater with an external air source - but the Precision Temp 5000 is the perfect fit.

Thank to the guys from Dalton Joudrey who had to work in tiny spaces and did a great job!
