The following is general instructions for starting up your compost mix of your Sun-Mar toilet. To begin use of the Sun-Mar Unit you need to do the start up procedure and then follow through on ongoing toilet maintenance routine. It usually takes about six weeks before a compost is properly established.
Now your Sun-Mar Toilet is ready to be used like a regular toilet.
When do you need to empty the Sun Mar toilet: Empty the toilet when the drum is 1/2 to 2/3 full. 2/3 full means the compost reaches about 2-3 inches below the drum door when the door is open.
How to empty the Sun-Mar toilet: To empty the compost in the drawer, pull the drum locker button and rotate the handle counter-clockwise. Turn at the same speed you would normally for mixing. If needed, use the rake to level the compost in the drawer. If there is not enough compost in the drawer, turn the handle clockwise again for 1 rotation.
Now leave the compost in the finishing drawer for 3-4 weeks or until you need to remove compost from the drum.
Why do you need to empty the Sun-Mar Toilet?
Unplug the unit if you are planning to leave your Sun-Mar for more than a few days. If you are just using the toilet for just the weekends, then you may unplug the toilet.
Consider installing a timer to shut the unit off after 48 hours to evaporate excess liquid. If you are leaving for a period of more than a few days, or the compost appears dry, add about 1/2 gallon of warm water before leaving to keep the compost moist.
Why do you need to unplug the Sun-Mar when you aren't using it?
