Rota-Loos are made in several sizes. The number of people that each size is suited to will vary, depending on the installation and the favourable composting conditions that can be generated.
The smallest unit is the Rota-Loo 650. This unit was designed for use in holiday homes with only one toilet pedestal and for homes with minimal clearance. With a good installation, the 650 will cater for 4 people on a full-time basis.
The largest domestic Rota-Loo is the 950. As its name suggests it physically stands 95cm tall and 120cm in diameter. The Rota-Loo 950 has more than twice the capacity of the 650 but is only 30cm taller. For continuous use we always recommend the Rota-Loo 950 first.
In a good installation in an optimum environment, the 950 will cater for a large family of up to 8 people. If the installation of any composting toilet is poorly done or in a cold climate then the units capacity will be diminished. The 950 also has the capacity to take two pedestals on the same unit. Please check with your distributor for the correct advice on which unit will best suit your needs.
The units available in the Rota-Loo range are:
- The Rota-Loo 101, it comes in kit form and is designed for use in developing countries
- The Mobile Rota-Loo, as a transportable or high altitude composting toilet,
- The Maxi Rota-Loo, for commercial facilities normally using a Soltran Building(tm).
The huge capacity of the Maxi 2000 makes it particularly suitable for public toilet facilities where the site is environmentally sensitive, where water is in short supply, or where a low maintenance facility is required. The Maxi Rota-Loo 2000 provides an environment that allows human waste to be treated by a method that has taken ‘Nature’ millions of years to evolve…NATURAL HYGIENIC COMPOSTING.
Use the toilet until the first bin is full, or when the compost is 100mm (4”) from the bottom edge of the waste chute. Use a torch occasionally to check the level.
When the bin is full:
- Open the door.
- Pour 2 to 3 litres of water into the bin…this could be poured down the pedestal.
- If available, cover the compost with about 30mm bulking agents (wood shavings, sugar cane mulsh etc).
- Rotate the bins one position in the clockwise direction.
Continue until all bins have been filled.
We recommend that each time you find it necessary to open the door to rotate the bins, you should also carry out the following checks and maintenance.
- Remove the air inlet filter – if possible – and brush off any dust that will have covered the mesh. Wash the filter in a bucket of water.
- Pour water from a bucket into the bottom of the Rota-Loo. This will help to dissolve the salt build up. Drain the liquid into the bucket through the 40mm drain tube, making sure that there is no blockage of the outlet tube fitting. Drain out only about one third of the liquid into the bucket and top with fresh water. Use this mixture on your flower garden or lawn. If your Rota-Loo is connected to a permanent drain, make sure that the outlet in the Rota-Loo tank is not blocked and that the liquid flows out.
- Switch off the fan.
Remove the cover holding the fan inside the housing and remove self tapping screws holding the fan to the pipe fitting. Slide the fan out of the housing to release the fan motor.
- Using a soft brush eg. a paint brush, clean off the dust which can build up around the fan blades and motor. Replace the fan. The fan in the Rota-Loo, which operates continuously, will draw air into the system through the screened inlet pipe. Odour will not rise into the toilet room against the negative pressure thus created. A small amount of air is drawn down through the toilet pedestal, which will maintain fresh air into the toilet room. This maintenance program should be carried out at least once every six months.
- When the toilet is unoccupied, keep the lid closed over the seat. If the toilet seat lid is left open for long periods, there will be a decrease in evaporation and odour could occur.
