What else you might need
Your Nature’s Head® separating toilet is supplied with most of the components necessary for installation. You might also consider:
Fans and ventilation
Your composting toilet comes with a small built-in fan for circulating air through the solids bin and removing humidity. This should be vented to the outside. If you already have an old ventilation hole in place, you could use gill plates in various sizes instead.
- For a new installation, a vent/fan size of approx. 6 cm diameter is sufficient for the required ventilation.
- Adding a fly screen or flynet over the vent is recommended to prevent insects from getting into the ventilation tube.
- Why not buy a stainless steel gill plate with flynet in our shop!
Please refer to the installation instructions in the box for the ventilation conditions, or contact us if you have any questions concerning your installation.
Hoses and hose length
For some installation variants, you may need longer hose lengths. if so, you can simply replace the hoses provided with longer lengths of standard PVC pipe (40mm). Do remember that the end of the hose needs to be flexible and removable, so it can be pulled off when you need to empty the solids containers of your composting toilet.
The mounting screws provided in the installation kits are for use on wooden floors only. For installations on a concrete floor or similar, we suggest attaching the toilet to a piece of lacquered wood that is screwed or glued to the concrete.
If you want to operate the toilet using a domestic power supply (house connection), you’ll need to covert the domestic supply using a suitable a suitable plug-in power supply/transformer. You’ll find these in our shop!
All composting toilets need to be primed with a substrate to kickstart composting. We always recommend coconut husk fibre, known as coir. This is lightweight, easy to handle, environmentally friendly and completely sustainable. You will find easy to use coco coir bricks in our online composting toilets accessories
