You’ve finally gotten everything in place, tightened the last screw and swept the floor of your new composting toilet installation. You’ve thought about purchasing a composting toilet for months and you’ve finally bitten the bullet, bought one, installed it yourself and you couldn’t be happier!
Now you’ve finally gotten around to installing this wonder of human engineering and biology it’s time to start thinking about all the composting toilet supplies you might need to keep your family’s bums clean, the actual toilet clean and stuff you may need to help in your ever-expanding education on composting humanure.
Below is a list of items that will always come in handy if you own a composting toilet. You certainly don’t need all of them, but it’s worth at least knowing about your options so you can make an informed decision about the different types of products you would like to purchase for your composting toilet.
Ahhhh, toilet paper. A wonderfully convenient commodity that just happens to disappear in Australia at even the slightest mention of a possible lockdown. If you don’t ever want to run out of toilet paper you can order yourself 48 rolls of extra-long toilet paper that’s soft as unicorn kisses and as strong as 1000 ponies.
Now that your composting toilet is installed and you and your family have started to use it, you will need a bulking agent to help with the composting process. A bulking agent will help to absorb ammonia from urine which will help in reducing odours as well as helping your compost pile break down into a usable top-soil like product.
Best of all, our bulking agent is made from 100% renewable hemp and compressed into a dense brick so you don’t pay for bulky packaging.
Our enzyme products work in two distinct ways. They can be used as a cleaning agent to clean your toilets (remember, don’t use harsh chemicals in your composting toilet or you will kill all the good bacterias in your compost pile) and because it’s made from an enzyme catalyst derived from bacterial fermentation, it actually assists your composting process. This product really is a two-in-one!
Nature Quick Microbes
One of the quickest ways to give your composting toilet a supercharge start is to use Nature Quick Microbes as soon as you install your composting toilet. Once you start filling your toilet with humanure and bulking agents, our Quick Enzymes will give your new composting toilet a bacterial boost to the existing colonies of Bacteria, Actinobacteria and Fungi and Moulds making sure your pile will break down and turn into a usable top-soil-like product.
Depending on the type of composting toilet you have will determine if it might be a good idea to have some spare chambers lying around. If you’re using a self-contained composting toilet like the CM2 CS, the CM LP, HM HP or the Natureloo Classic, it’s always good to have a spare chamber so you’re able to let your compost pile cure once it gets full and have an empty chamber ready to replace it with.
There are lots of other things you can consider buying when you get your composting toilet (like solar power accessories, bigger exhaust fans, etc) but the products listed above are the ones you will be using day to day in your new composting toilet!
