The Clivus Multrum waterless composting toilet is a waterless,odourless toilet treatment system. It uses no chemicals, heat or water and has no polluting discharge. The Clivus Multrum waterless composting toilet system can save over 60,000 litres of water per year in the average home and costs far less than regular treatment systems.
The Clivus Multrum waterless composting toilet system is 100% natural – no chemicals!
If you are in need of an off-grid, family sized composting toilet, that can range up to large commercial sizes, that has been tried and proven around the world since 1938, the Clivus Multrum waterless toilet is designed so.
It is a self-contained waterless, odourless, toilet treatment system, using no chemicals, heat or water, and has no polluting discharge. It can save over 60,000 litres of water per year in the average home and costs far less than regular treatment systems. It is based on one of the oldest principles in nature – simple organic decomposition.
Designed so it is continuously composting, and to replicate best the natural process of composting, the loo consists of a hand-made, contemporary featured, poly marble pedestal, that sits in your bathroom as a flushing toilet would, with the durable poly-ethylene composting tank that sits vertically below the pedestal under the floor level, connected internally via the chute.
The result is that in your bathroom it looks and functions virtually the same as a flush loo (with the exception of the flushing) meaning that no imitation is required to use this loo. The tank is scaled from 5 people full time, (CM8), up to commercial sizes (CM40), with the option of having more than one pedestal attached to the one tank.
Ordinarily, there are 3 requirements to manage your Clivus Multrum composting toilet:
Make sure untreated wood-shavings (aka Bulking Agent) are added at least once a day, or small amounts after every use.
Every 3-4 months, the rake supplied will need to be used to knock over the pyramiding pile (a 5 sec job), done through the top inspection hatch.
No more than once a year (or up to 24 months), the finished compost from the bottom chamber will need to be removed – depending on the level of usage.The compost that is removed from the chamber has been sufficiently decomposed and matured so that it is pathogen free, nutrient dense and completely natural compost – proven to be better quality compost that what can be purchased from a garden store, and because of the sanitary nature of it, ready to be applied to your garden as a wonderful fertiliser.
All Clivus Multrum Composting Toilet Systems are certified against the "AS/NZS 1546.2:2008 On-site domestic wastewater treatment units – Waterless composting toilets" standards.
