How Do They Work?
The purpose of a composting toilet is to optimize the decomposition process and speed things up. Heating and air components in the tank help to evaporate liquids that can then escape through a ventilation pipe that runs through the back of the toilet.
Gasses will not escape back up the toilet because there are trap doors that open up when someone sits on the toilet. Closing the lid of the toilet activates the mixer in the top chamber distributing moisture. When the matter has been effectively composted it then falls down into the lower chamber which is then later emptied.
A floater is installed in the chamber to detect if too much liquid has been added to the toilet. If this happens a second heater is then activated to speed the process up. About once a week mulch should be added to the designated area in your toilet instructions.
There is also a thermostat included with the toilet that adds the proper amount of heat to the compost depending on how many people are using the toilet. If you plan on leaving the toilet alone for more than two days then it must be turned off.
