CF 8

The CF 8 expands the possibilities of continuous composting systems, specially designed for medium to high usage scenarios with a need for minimal underfloor clearance. This larger model distinguishes itself by offering:

  • Capacity for 6-12 Users: It's engineered to accommodate 6 full-time or up to 12 part-time users, efficiently managing approximately 22 daily visits.
  • Low Underfloor Clearance Requirement: With only 17.7 inches of underfloor clearance needed when partially buried, it fits seamlessly into various installation environments.
  • Effortless Maintenance: Featuring a single composting bin design, the system simplifies waste management by negating the need for container exchanges.
  • Substantial Composting Volume: Boasts a high 950-liter (250-gallon) capacity, significantly reducing organic waste volume by up to 80% through its efficient composting process.

Operating on a single-container continuous composting principle, the CF 8 ensures organic material is constantly decomposed, making room for new waste while allowing for the easy removal of composted material from the front. The system comes equipped with all necessary components for installation, including a composting container, drainage floor, and a waste chute, among others. An innovative feature is the option to connect a second toilet pedestal, enhancing its adaptability to different usage requirements.

What is a continuous composting toilet?

A continuous composting toilet is a type of eco-friendly toilet that processes waste through ongoing composting within a single container. Unlike batch systems, which require swapping out full containers for empty ones, a continuous system adds new waste on top while older waste decomposes at the bottom. This design allows for the removal of composted material from one end (usually the bottom or backs) while fresh waste is added from the top or front. Continuous composting toilets manage moisture, ventilate to prevent odors, and often include features to separate liquid and solid waste, enhancing the composting efficiency and making the system suitable for continuous use without the need for frequent emptying.

Usage

The CF composting toilet is used just as a conventional toilet, except that it is not flushed. All waste including toilet paper goes down through the toilet to the below-floor compost chamber. Thanks to darkness inside the compost chamber, there is no clear visibility to the waste. Efficient ventilation keeps the composting container underpressured at all times and hence the toilet remains completely odorless.

For improved compost quality, we highly recommend adding organic bulking agent such as animal hemp bedding or peat into the compost tiny amount (a cup) after every use or once a week a greater amount.

Installation

CF composting toilets are continuous composting toilets, meaning there is a single composting unit installed underneath the toilet floor level where all the “magic” happens – that is organic breakdown of matter through natural composting process resulting in a reusable humus / compost.

The below floor black composting unit is connected to the floor level toilet pedestal with a waste shaft included in the package.

The CF composting container can be installed either completely on ground level or buried half in to ground. Burying is a great option for spaces with limited height clearance under the toilet floor. Half-buried, the CF 8 only requires 18 inches of underfloor clearance. If the container can not be buried, the height requirement is 36 inches.

Operating Principle

The operating principle of the CF toilets is simple. All the waste, including toilet paper, is put into the toilet. The waste drops through the waste shaft to the backside of the CF container beginning it’s decomposition process right away.

While majority of the urine gets naturally absorbed into the compost mass and evaporates through ventilation, the CF composting toilets also have an outlet from excess liquids preventing the compost being too wet.

Service and maintenance

As with all toilets, there is a certain amount of maintenance involved with the CF composting toilets. Essentially the service of the CF toilet is about raking or shoveling space for the fresh waste and emptying ready composted humus/mulch out of the system. A lot depending on the number of users, climate and other conditions, we recommend servicing the system every 6 months assuming 3-4 people use the toilet daily (average of 16 daily visits).

Explaining the CF

Derived from Latin, “Cultus” refers to a toilet, while “Fulcrum” signifies a single point – indicating a toilet designed with a solitary chamber. Alternatively, “Cultus” can represent culture or society, and “Fulcrum,” a pivotal moment. This dual meaning underscores our contribution at Waterless Toilet Shop to support societal progress during times of transformation.
