The Green Apple Splatters, The Hershey Squirts, Bubble Guts, Code Brown, The Runs, Montezuma's Revenge, Mudd Butt, Organic Brown Lava, The Trots and my personal favourite – The Arsequake. No matter what you call it, we’ve all had it at one time or another and we’ve all had to deal with the after effects (which are never pretty).
Now if you have a flush toilet in your home, you press the button and all evidence of your regrettable 3am lamb kebab or dodgy-looking food wagon seafood pie is flushed away. With a composting toilet you have to deal with things a little differently and we’re here to let you know how.
What to do if you have diarrhea on a composting toilet
Now you’re probably thinking to yourself (other than “I’m never eating three day old steak again”) “Can my composting toilet handle diarrhea?” Well the answer to that question is yes – a composting toilet can certainly handle diarrhea.
Because Diarrhea typically has a little more liquid in it than normal ‘poop’ you may find you might need to run the exhaust fan a little more than you would normally to help evaporate the additional liquid.
Other than that, your composting toilet should function as normal, without any issues.
How to clean a composting toilet if you diarrhea
This is a pretty straight forward process and you may want to go check out our article How to clean a composting toilet for more info but the process is very easy. Simply swish some of our Nature Flush Enzymes around the bowel and scrub with a toilet brush. You may wish to spray some water around the bowl or pedestal afterwards or simply wet some paper towel and wipe down.
As you can see having a composting toilet at home when one or multiple family members have diarrhea is not really an issue, you just need to approach cleaning the after effects slightly differently than with a flush toilet.
