Here you will find a list of the most important composting toilet accessories. These include consumables for the daily use of your composting toilet as well as basic parts for building your composting toilet yourself.
In this section you will find short and clear answers to frequently asked questions about our composting toilet accessories.
Due to our urine diverter and the separation of solids and liquids, unwanted odours are minimized and the disposal of toilet waste is made easier. Toilet chemicals that are harmful to the environment are not necessary as unpleasant odours are only created by the mixing of urine and faeces.
As our compostable inlays are made from corn starch and are biodegradable, we recommend that they are changed weekly. If you don’t plan to compost your toilet waste, you can also use our recyclable plastic inlays. These do not decompose so you can use them for longer.
Litter is a substance made of absorbent materials such as wood shavings that can be composted. After each bowel movement, about 250 ml of litter should be placed in the back of the toilet opening to cover faeces and toilet paper. This helps to absorb moisture and odours, which is especially useful for TROBOLO composting toilets without an electric exhaust system.
Yes, if you have wood waste at home, such as sawdust, which is a by-product of DIY, you can easily use it as an alternative litter or add it to the TROBOLO litter. However, it is important to make sure that the sawdust is neither too fine nor too coarse. In this regard, you can orientate yourself towards the texture of our TROBOLO litter.
The electric exhaust system creates a slight negative pressure and directs the resulting moisture and odours outside via an exhaust duct. The system creates a slight negative pressure throughout to effectively remove odours and moisture. It can be easily connected via a USB connection (12V, 24V or 230V) and consumes very little power. The maximum current consumption is 0.26 A, the maximum power consumption is 1.3 W and the noise level is 19.3 dB. When using an electric exhaust system, no use of additional litter is required.
The natural exhaust system is based on the chimney effect, which ensures that warm air rises and is discharged to the outside through an exhaust pipe. In this way, moisture and odours are conducted out of the toilet and neutralised. No electrical energy is required as the system relies entirely on natural air flow.
The ideal emptying intervals depend on various factors.
If you are using an electric waste system, you only need to empty the solids and liquids containers when they are full, as the electric waste system ensures that no unpleasant odours can form.
When using a natural exhaust system in combination with litter, we recommend emptying intervals of 20 to 30 days for the solids container and 7 to 10 days for the liquids container.
If you use litter only, you should empty the solids container every 5 to 10 days and the liquids container every 3 to 4 days.
When using a liquids container equipped with TROBOLO SafeShell System®, you can use the capacity of the container regardless of the time, as no unpleasant odours can escape.
Yes, the surfaces are sealed with a multi-layer lacquer so that easy, hygienic cleaning is possible.
Standard toilet seats typically have a width of between 35 and 38 cm. Our toilet seats are between 33 cm and 35.5 cm wide, depending on the model.
To compost toilet waste properly, a closed composter is recommended. The closed container prevents odour nuisance during the composting process and prevents the penetration of excessive rainwater, which would turn into black water if it came into contact with material that has not yet been composted and should not be allowed to enter the soil. Commercially available hot composters usually meet these requirements. In our online shop we also offer composters and hot composters specially designed for this purpose. Here you can find more information on the topic of composting correctly.
