The water-less Rota-Pod compost toilet is a self-contained composting toilet system designed for use where running water is not readily accessible. A silent fan increases air-flow within the system and generates enhanced evaporation capacity. This establishes ideal conditions for efficient break-down of the contents and guarantees completely odour-free operation.
Peat/wood shavings are used to aid in this process and as a cover material to minimise visual/olfactory impact.
An appealing design and simplicity of use make the Rota-Pod a great choice for any location. The aerobic decomposition and evaporation functions reduce human waste to a hygienically-safe material that can be recycled back to nature without polluting the environment.
Equipped with a convenient drain tube, the Rota-Pod drains off any excess liquid not evaporated to be dispersed via a gravel filled dispersal trench.
The Rota-Pod's proven batch composting system combined with constant air circulation proves an excellent solution to almost any situation. It separates liquid from solid waste. A very appealing design and simplicity of use, makes the Rota-Pod a great choice!
There are 3 triangular bins housed in the system. When one bin is full, simply move the mechanism on and start on the next bin. Once the third bin is full, the first bin will have broken down into fertile humus. This is then emptied out in a suitable place and the bin reinserted to be used again.
If the compost hasn't completely matured, the oldest bin can be added to some form of composting bin, heap or container. This will then turn into usable compost that is great for your garden. In this way you can extend the capacity of the system.
The Rota-Pod is easy to install by anyone with basic handyman knowledge in just a couple hours with common household tools.

Available as an optional extra is a moisture trap. It is installed as the last junction before the ventilation pipe goes horizontal and is designed to capture any condensation in the ventilation pipe.
Emptying is simple, remove the push - on cap and your system is evacuated.
This should to be done every now and again to protect the fan from moisture damage. Service interval depends on temperature and you will soon get used to your particular service requirements.
