Installing and Using a Nature's Head Toilet
Although the concept of a composting head (toilet) is not a new one, the unit which you have purchased is the freshest of the new generation of this kind of product.
The designers and their wives, all sailors with many years of boating experience, used earlier versions of composting toilets on their boats. They saw a need for an improved design and more user-friendly product. The concept has been refined and reworked to provide you with a product that is easier to use, aesthetically pleasing, more space-efficient, and more affordable alternative to other products. While designed to withstand the rigors of the boating environment, the NATURE’S HEAD® toilet is well suited for many other applications.
The Nature’s Head is easy to install; the unit attaches to the floor with two small l brackets. There is one ventilation hose to run outside and one 12volt power hook-up for a small computer type fan. The unit could even be run completely powerless by running the vent hose to a solar vent.
No Pump-Outs, No Porta-Potties to Empty!
Unlike any other type of toilet, the longer you let a composting toilet sit, the better it will smell when it’s time to empty it. No more having to deal with pump-outs or smelly portable-potties at the end of your long weekend. The longer a composting toilet sits the more time it has to do its job.
Our toilet is very economical to operate; there are NO chemicals to buy, although it is recommended to use our "Compost Toilet Cleaner/Stimulant” which can be sprayed in the bowl before use for lubrication and cleaning. A block of “Coir Peat” is supplied with the toilet and can be further purchased from places such as Bunnings or Big W or EnviroPro Alternatives for a little over $2. You use one of these each time you empty the main chamber.
When it’s time to empty your toilet simply flip the two latches on the sides and lift the upper section up a few inches. Put the lid on the liquid bottle and lift it out of its holder. To empty the main tank un-hook the 12 volt power connector and the vent hose and then slide the upper section off its open ended hinge. Undo the 2 thumb screws on the base and it’s ready to empty. Because there are no liquids in the main tank, even full it is never heavy. The unit is sized so that a kitchen garbage bag will go over the end of the main tank. Simply flip it over and you’re done. There is no need to clean the tank when you empty it, any left-over matter will help start the composting process all over again.
