This post is for me to prepare for a self contained certification for my bus. It's written specifically for whoever might do the certification.
This post has also been shared to the private Facebook Group "Freedom Camping NZ" where at time of writing this 78 comments had been written many of which were used to improve either this presentation or the self containment itself. Thanks to all those folk.
Certification for 3 people
Minimum toilet capacity: 9 litres (we have 21)
Minimum vented waste water capacity: at least 36 litres or less with a visual monitor (we have 40 with monitor)
Minimum potable water requirements: 3 x 12 litres of water = 36 litres (we have 60-80)
Campsites and camp grounds - apps
2. Sink and water dispensing
Under the sink during normal use - two 20 litre containers secured with a bungy.
3. Water supply
One 20 litre and four 10 litre opaque containers. Stored in a wooden frame under a bed.
We have taps for them all but usually we transfer the water into more convenient containers and dispense from those.
We usually carry at least another 40 litres of water for other uses like cleaning the bus, rinsing after salt water...
4. Rubbish bin
This is one of our sealable rubbish bins.
Here's the bus parked at home. Ready for another trip.
