Maintaining a Nature Loo™

Any Cleaning? Not as much as you’d think

Nature Flush has a fresh vanilla fragrance and is diluted with 20 parts water and used as a natural cleaner. The spray by itself can do the job but a standard toilet brush can also be used with the spray. The enzymes will also accelerate the composting process, a catalyst and initiator in chemical reactions. Refills of the enzyme concentrate can be purchased online.

Adding bulking agent – Less effort than flushing

Bulking agent, such as wood shavings),should be added on a regular basis, preferably a handful after each #2. Alternatively, add the equivalent of this on a daily or weekly basis. Nothing is added if you are only doing a #1. 

Rotating/Exchanging the Compost  Chambers

Every few months to a year the Nature Loo composting toilet chambers will need to be rotated/exchanged. No official training is required to carry out the rotation which can be carried out by the owner of the property, a handyman, plumber etc.

If the toilet is used consistently by the same number of people, you will soon see how often the ‘In-Service’ chamber needs to be replaced as this is dependent on use.

A sufficient number of chambers must be purchased to allow the out-of-service chamber a minimum time (4 months for the Classic 650 and 6 months for the Classic 850) from the time they are disconnected from the waste chute.

Every few weeks you should shine a torch down the toilet pedestal to see if it is full, (when the compost pile reaches the top of the internal vent pipes).
