The Excel Electric Compost Toilet - Beige is a high capacity, electric, self-contained unit. Long considered the standard in composting toilet performance, it is the preferred self-contained model for heavy cottage or for residential use. This composting toilet incorporates a patented Bio-drum which ensures a fast and odorless decomposition. The electrical features on the Excel are a thermostatically controlled heater in the base of the unit to assist with evaporating liquids, and a fan in the top rear which maintains a partial vacuum on the unit. It does this by drawing air in over the evaporating chamber and up the vent stack.
ANSI/NSF- 41 is the only composting toilet standard in North America, and this toilet is certified and listed by National Sanitation Foundation for cottage and/or residential use. During extensive testing by NSF, the Excel was found to operate odorless, to produce a clean dry compost, and to evaporate all liquids. In normal use the Excel can normally evaporate all liquids, however a 1/2" emergency drain is fitted at the rear and this should be connected if the unit is to be used residentially or heavily, or if prolonged power outages are expected.
The Excel saves thousands of gallons of water while recycling waste into a safe usable soil. The unit is shipped fully assembled. To install, simply plug into a regular 110V outlet and connect the 2" vent stack supplied with the unit. Simply add a peat moss mixture and rotate the handle twice a week to produce the final product of nutrient rich fertilizing soil!
