The Ultimate utilises an internal container for collection of solids, and includes automatic urine diversion and active ventilation along with the other features of the Ultimate pedestal.
The Ultimate SC is suitable for minor use in sheds, camps, mobile homes or other temporary situations. Underfloor access is not required, as the urine hose connects to the rear of the unit.
The Ultimate pedestal diverts urine away from the composting chamber, allowing you to pipe or bottle it for use as a fertiliser.
Urine diversion significantly enhances a composting toilet system:
- speeds up the composting process
- minimises required storage
- significantly reduces odour
The Ultimate SC has been extensively tested and modified through many iterations, resulting in a bowl design which effectively and automatically separates urine flow. Simply connect a hose to the fitting on the rear of the pedestal and direct it to a dissipation trench or storage vessel.
Urine is sterile (provided you are healthy) and for gardeners, it can be an excellent fertiliser as it is very rich in phosphates.
