Basic Installation Steps

Begin the installation by:

  • Selecting a level location with adequate space.
  • Secure the base to the floor using the provided L-brackets and screws.
  • For wooden floors, mount the toilet using countersunk screws.
  • For concrete floors, consider mounting it on a section of plywood to avoid drilling into masonry.

Ensure there’s enough clearance around the toilet for the lid to open fully and for the bowl to tilt rearward for removal. You'll need 1 1/2 inches between the toilet and the wall.

Vent Hose Set Up

For effective composting and odor management, proper vent hose setup is important. Here’s how to do it:

  • Connect the vent hose to the exhaust outlet on the toilet.
  • Ensure the vent hose runs to a vent point outside the living area.
  • The fan inside the housing blows air out of the vent.
  • Cover the vent with a mesh fabric or screen to prevent insect entry.

The vent can be routed vertically through the roof, horizontally through the wall, or down through the floor.

Vent Hose Set Up

Electrical Requirements

The fan included in the Nature's Head Composting Toilet is an essential component to preventing odors in your space and also helps the composting process.

Ensure the fan is connected to a fused circuit with a fuse rating between 2 and 5 amps for a 12V system. When using a 110-volt power adapter, no fuse is required. This minimal power requirement makes it ideal for off-grid living.

Maintenance and Upkeep

Regular cleaning and minimal maintenance keep the Nature’s Head composting toilet in good working order.

Emptying Solid Waste

For full-time use by two people, empty the solid waste container around one month, or more frequently with additional users. The process involves:

  • Placing a 13-gallon kitchen bag over the opening
  • Inverting the base
  • Pouring the contents into the bag
  • After emptying, refill the container with two gallons of pre-moistened sphagnum peat moss or coconut coir

You can either throw away the bag in a regular garbage bin, or use the compost on your lawn or garden.

emptying liquids container

Emptying the Liquids Container

To prevent overflow and unpleasant smells, the 2.2-gallon urine bottle included in the Nature’s Head composting toilet should be emptied every 3-4 days for two people.

Regularly emptying the liquid container is a good plan to avoid odors and allows continued use. Once it's emptied, you can rinse the container with water and vinegar or detergent to minimize odors.

Feel free to pour it down a regular toilet, in a field, at the base of a tree etc. Urine is sterile and although it's smelly, it's not harmful.


Cleaning and Odor Control

Routine cleaning of the Nature’s Head composting toilet can be done with a quick spray of water and white vinegar or a natural cleaner in the bowl. Avoid using bleach, ammonia, or other commercial cleaning compounds as they can interfere with the composting process and cause odors.

No need to clean out the solids bin once emptied as it's just soil, just take out your compost and carry on using it.

If your fan is running and your liquids container isn't overflowing, you shouldn't experience any unpleasant odors.

The Difference Between Urine Diverting, Batch Composting and Continuous Composting

The Nature's Head Composting Toilet is a Urine Diverting system.

To choose the best option for your needs, it helps to understand the differences between urine-diverting, batch composting, and continuous composting toilets. Urine-diverting toilets separate urine from solid waste at the source, improving composting efficiency and reducing odors,.

Batch composting toilets collect waste in the base of your toilet and your urine flows through it and drains through the bottom of the toilet. Once the waste container is full, you take out the compartment and allow the composting to be completed outside of the toilet, while replacing the bin with a new one and carrying on using the toilet.

Continuous composting toilets use a single chamber where new waste is added at the top and finished compost is removed from the bottom, making them suitable for high-use situations,.

Tips for Optimum use

Avoid using bleach or ammonia for cleaning to get the best performance from your Nature’s Head composting toilet, as they can interfere with the composting process. Regularly monitor the moisture level in the compost to prevent both overly wet and dry conditions.

Using Coco Coir

For optimal composting conditions, add pre-moistened coconut fiber or sphagnum peat moss to the base of the toilet. The coco coir should be damp and crumbly, not wet or soupy, to ensure proper composting. Use a ratio of about 1:1 between coco coir and waste to maintain the right balance.

Proper Fan Usage

Maintaining a pleasant odor-free environment requires proper fan usage. Keep the fan running if its being used regularly to prevent odors and ensure proper ventilation.

If you won't be using it for 10 days or more, it's recommended to turn off the fan so you don't dry out your compost too much.

The fan helps in expelling odors and maintaining an airy environment.


Avoiding Common Mistakes

Avoid adding too much medium after each solid waste use to prevent limiting the time before the toilet needs to be emptied.

Inform guests on the proper use of the toilet to prevent improper composting actions.

Be aware that the composting process can become inactive in temperatures below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, requiring additional measures in cold climates.

Does the Nature's Head Composting Toilet Smell Bad?

No, it does not. The Separation of Solids from Liquids is the key to achieving this. It will have a slight Earthly smell and that's how you know it is working properly.

Where do I empty my solid and liquid waste from my Nature's Head Composting Toilet?

Urine can be disposed of on Mature Trees or diluted for plants or simply emptied into a gas station toilet on the road. The compost section can be emptied into a compost pile or bin, or you can simply throw it in a regular garbage if it's done composting.

How does it separate Liquids from Solids?

When the trap door is open and someone is seated, the urine will continue to flow to the front. When the trap door is shut, urine from any part of the bowl gets directed into the bottle.

Do I need to add any bulking material?

Yes, organic sphagnum peat moss or organic coco coir works well for Nature's Head Composting Toilets. Composting requires aerobic bacteria to work and oxygen is the key ingredient that allows aerobic bacteria to break down waste quickly and without odor.

Does the fan need to be on all of the time?

If the toilet won't be used for 10 days or more, it is recommended to unplug the fan as this will cause the compost to be too dry and hard. If you are using the toilet full-time, it is recommended to keep the fan on to make the composting process faster.

Does Nature's Head Composting Toilet Fan use a lot of power?

No, it does not. The fan draws 1.7 amp hours in 24 hours which is about 4 cents per month.

Will freezing temperatures damage my Nature's Head?

No, the compost and toilet will be unharmed in freezing weather. However, please make sure to empty the urine bottle.

Does cold weather affect the composting process on my Nature's Head Composting Toilet?

Composting is ideal and faster in warmer conditions, ideally 55 degrees and warmer. During Freezing Temps, the compost will lie dormant until heat is introduced.

s it okay to place Vegetable Scraps in my Nature's Head Composting Toilet?

No, doing this affects and slows the breaking down of the solids. Also, this will cause your toilet to fill up faster.

Can I use any type of Toilet Paper for the Nature's Head Composting Toilet?

Yes, you can, however, it is recommended to use single-ply toilet paper since it breaks down easily.

Can you dispose Tampons in the Nature's Head Composting Toilet bin?

It is not recommended. Some brands have different materials used in them and may not decompose at all. Even 100% organic tampons that will compost will still take a lot of time and will not be ideal.
