The EcoLet Manual model contains an electric heater and fan to aid the composting process by evaporating excess liquids, regulating the temperature, and providing additional air flow to the compost mixture. Simply turn the T-handle at top a couple of times after each use and your compost is mixed and aerated by the internal mixing devices.
The Ecolet Manual is a composting toilet system that uses a clever T-handle system to mix the compost in the receptacle below. Combine this with the electric heater and fan to aid in the composting process, and you have a semi-automatic waterless toilet system that’s perfect for couples, retirees or in a apartment / granny flat. The EcoLet comes with a convenient chamber screen, so the inner compost chamber is not visible when the toilet is not in use.
The EcoLet Manual is certified to Australian & New Zealand Standard 1546.2. In addition, it is also approved in QLD, NSW, VIC, ACT, NT, WA and TAS.
How this composting toilet works
When waste is added to the system the electric heater and fan system creates an environment where biological decomposition is optimised. The fan system works to evaporate excess liquids and to divert air and smells to the ventilation pipe (this means no smell).
The T-shaped handle at the top of the system essentially replaces the flush component of a normal toilet. Instead of flushing this composting toilet you simply turn the handle which mixes the compost and starts the biological decomposition process.
