Ok... so the compost toilet requires electric. I have the required electricity listed below. Would anyone on here be able to set me up with the batteries, converts, and panel I would need to run this toilet. Or I company that would be able to sell me the correct stuff? Thanks...
Ours dosen't have electric
4" PVC stack extends through the roof about 3ft up.
The top of the stack is just above the ridge line.
It has a 5 or 6 inch outter PVC cap mounted verticaly around the 4" piece to help creat a draft up the pipe.
As far as a heater for it, we don't have one of them either.
We never an an issue rotating the tumbler at the end of deer week or even for a weekend trip even in Jan/Feb.
It is frozen when we get there but after a weekend of use it's thawed enough to turn it over. Ours is a Sun-Mar. Camp is in Tioga Co by the way.
If you go to Sun-Mars website and type in model number you should be able to download all the info you need to hook it up. I have a non-electric and it works good. I have had it for 15 years now in my camp.
Mine is strictly non-electric except for the fan that I put in the stack to help ventilate and remove some of the excess moisture , though I ran it for years without it. I usually empty mine at least once per/year sometimes twice. It gets used by anywhere from me up to as many as 18 people on weekends around 75 -85 days per year, but usually it is used by an average of 4 people. Very efficient.
I have a full Sun-Mar Centrex unit that serves three toilets in my house. Sun-Mar units come in various models based on what the person has available to them. In my house unit, it has power and water for low-flow toilets. The electric runs the evaporator tray which heats the water/effluent to evaporate the liquid and the fans are used to exhaust up the roof. The model you are talking about also uses electric for these same needs. U can use the toilet without electric but you may find excessive water and odor issues. Composting toilets are really growing in popularity. My suggestion would be to visit their site and review the workings of the toilet and what maintenance is involved. If you ignore these toilets, it will be painful in the end.
Good Luck with the Composting. I have had great success over the past 7 years and it saves all of the hassle of having outdoor septic system.
