Every livingorganism consumes nutrients and creates waste. To transform Compost is Nature's Way to turn waste back to nutrients and complete this cycle, nature uses the processes of decompostition and evaporation. As is often the case, nature seems to be doing business in the best way possible.
That's why compost toilets are designed not only to harness these natural processes, but to optimize and accelerate them.
Toilet waste is over 90% water content. This can be evaporated and carried back to the atmosphere through the vent system. The small amount of remaining material is recycled into a useful fertilizing soil.
Wherever there is a poorly working septic system, a Sun-Mar can take care of the toilet waste; where there is an outhouse we offer the luxury of an indoor facility; and where there is no toilet at all, a compost toilet provides the right environmental choice. Our composting units are economical, quick to install and easy to use.
Because no chemicals and no septic systems are used, fragile environments can be protected. A composting toilet unit is an environmentally healthy choice for recycling human waste.
Our composting systems produce no pollutants, while collecting nutrients. With a composting toilet, recycling is made easy!
As well as ensuring an aerobic breakdown in the Bio-drum, the composting toilet ensures an odor free environment by engineering the air flow within the unit to maintain a partial vacuum at all times. Air is being drawn in either by a fan (or on non-electric units by the vent chimney) over the evaporating chamber and up the vent stack. Not only does this evaporate excess liquid, but by continuously pulling air in we ensure no smell escapes from the unit.
Evaporation is assisted on electric units by a thermostatically controlled heater in a sealed compartment underneath the evaporating chamber.
