Rota Loo 650

The Rota-Loo system offers a innovative approach to waterless toilet maintenance, perfect for locations where traditional septic systems are impractical. This waterless, odorless, and chemical-free batch composting toilet system is renowned for its ease of installation and minimal maintenance requirements, making it an ideal choice for environmentally sensitive areas near waterways. Utilizing a batch composting method, the Rota-Loo simplifies waste handling by only requiring attention at the end of the composting cycle, ensuring a mess-free and fuss-free process.

The Rota Loo system employs a unique rotation mechanism, likened to a clock, where each bin fills over approximately two-three months before rotating to the next, allowing for a year-round cycle of use and composting. This process results in nutrient-rich humus, perfect for garden use. Designed with a fan to encourage evaporation and maintain fresh air, the Rota-Loo keeps the toilet area pleasant without the use of water or chemicals.

The compact Rota-Loo 650 model caters to holiday homes or residences with limited space, supporting up to 4 full-time users. Each package includes six bins, filters, ventilation components, a waste chute, and a wind turbine for ventilation, among other essentials, ensuring everything needed for setup and operation is provided. This system exemplifies sustainable living, offering an effective solution for turning human waste into beneficial compost.

There is also a larger Rota-Loo 950 available for greater capacity needs.

What is a batch composting toilet?

A batch composting toilet is a waterless toilet that processes human waste through composting in separate batches. Unlike continuous composting systems, which handle waste in a single, ongoing process, batch systems compartmentalize the composting activity into distinct containers or bins. Each bin is filled sequentially, then set aside to allow the waste to compost over time, typically several months, transforming it into nutrient-rich mulch. Once a bin is full, it’s sealed and a new bin is used, minimizing handling and ensuring an odorless, chemical-free process. This method effectively reduces waste volume and recycles nutrients. Batch composting toilets are generally praised for their hands-off approach to the maintenance of waterless toilets.

Rota-Loos are exemplary models of a batch composting toilet. This innovative design incorporates multiple bins within a single large container, each acting as a separate batch unit. As one bin is connected to a dry toilet pedestal and fills up with human waste, it follows the fundamental principles of batch composting by isolating the waste. Once the bin reaches capacity, the internal mechanism of the Rota-Loo allows for the rotation of the container, positioning a new empty bin under the waste chute.

The full bin, now disconnected from the toilet, remains within the unit, where the composting process continues undisturbed. Over several months, the waste in this bin breaks down into nutrient-rich mulch. This system minimizes manual handling of raw toilet waste and maintains an efficient, odorless operation throughout its cycle.

 

How Rota Loo works?

The Rota-Loo functions much like a rotating clock. Picture it with multiple bins, starting with Bin 1 positioned at what would be 12 o’clock. This bin is used initially and typically fills up over the course of two to three months. Once Bin 1 is full, you simply rotate the Rota-Loo system clockwise to bring the next bin into the primary position at 12 o’clock for use.

This rotation process is repeated as each bin fills. By the time Bin 1 comes full circle back to the 12 o’clock position, usually about a year later, its contents have transformed into a rich, nutrient-dense humus. This humus is not only safe but also beneficial for your garden, completing the eco-friendly cycle. The emptied bin is then ready to be put back into use, starting the process anew.

Installation

The Rota-Loo is designed to be installed with ease and is ideal for both residential and commercial settings. It is supplied as a comprehensive kit, which can be assembled using standard tools that are readily available at most hardware stores.

Installation Highlights:

  • Site Preparation: A flat, level base should be ensured, shielded from the elements, with adequate space allocated for the unit and ventilation components, and convenient access for maintenance.
  • Assembly: The toilet pedestal is to be positioned directly above the Rota-Loo unit to ensure a vertical drop.
  • Ventilation Setup: A ventilation system must be installed to control odors and facilitate the composting process. This involves the fitting of ventilation pipes and a fan to ensure effective air flow.
  • Service Access: Regular access to the compost bins should be planned, making them readily accessible for easy servicing approximately every two months.
  • Power Requirements: The electrical setup for the fan should be prepared.

Before its use, final checks should be conducted to confirm that everything is installed correctly and functioning as expected. This straightforward setup process, coupled with routine maintenance, ensures that the Rota-Loo will be pleasant to use and service.

Service

Servicing the Rota-Loo is designed to be straightforward, ensuring continuous and efficient operation. Here’s a simple guide to servicing the system:

  • Bin Rotation: When a bin becomes full (remaining no more than 4 inches below the top), it is rotated. The access door should be opened, and a mixture of compost starter and water, as specified by the compost starter instructions, should be added through the pedestal.
  • Compost Covering: It is recommended that the compost be covered with about 1 inch of covering material to enhance decomposition.
  • Advance the Bins: The bins are rotated one position clockwise. The bin now under the waste chute, filled with composted material unless it is the first use, should be emptied.
  • Empty and Prepare: The composted material is to be emptied safely. The jute liner, which decomposes more slowly, can also be composted. A new jute liner should be placed in the emptied bin, covered with 2 inches of covering material, and the bin returned to the Rota-Loo. The door is then closed, preparing it for reuse.
  • Record Keeping: The Bin Rotation Diary is to be used to record when bins are turned and emptied. This diary should be kept either on the door of the Rota-Loo or in a nearby accessible location.

These steps ensure that the Rota-Loo is maintained properly, supporting the natural composting process, minimizing maintenance efforts and keeping the toilet pleasant to use.
