Sun Mar composting toilets are a great way to reduce water usage

Sun Mar composting toilets are a great way to reduce water usage in your home, cottage or cabin. They are simple to operate and maintain, and produce very little odor. However, like all toilets, they need to be cleaned periodically to prevent potential odors and health hazards.

Here are some tips on how to clean a Sun Mar composting toilet:

-Empty the tank: The first step is to empty the tank. This can be done by flushing the toilet several times until the bowl is empty. Then, open the tank and scoop out any solid waste with a shovel or bucket.

-Clean the bowl: Once the tank is empty, you can clean the bowl. Use a toilet brush and some mild cleanser to scrub the bowl, paying special attention to the rim where most of the dirt and grime accumulate.

-Sanitize the bowl: To sanitize the bowl, you can use a diluted bleach solution or white vinegar. Simply pour some of your chosen cleaner into the bowl and let it sit for a few minutes before flushing it away.

-Clean the tank: The next step is to clean out the tank. This can be done by flushing it with a hose or power washer. If you’re using a hose, make sure that the water pressure is not too high as this could damage the tank. Once you’ve flushed it out, you can also scrub it down with soapy water if necessary.

-Dry out the tank: After cleaning, it’s important to dry out the inside of the tank completely. This can be done by leaving it open in a sunny location for a few days or using a dehumidifier if necessary.

Cleaning your Sun Mar composting toilet regularly will ensure that it continues to work properly and doesn’t cause any problems down the road.

The first step is to remove the cover and lid to access the composting chamber

With the cover and lid removed, use a small shovel or trowel to remove the compost from the chamber. Take care not to damage the plastic liner as you shovel out the compost.

Use a shovel or other tool to remove the compost from the chamber

TheSun Mar composting toilets have an outer chamber and an inner chamber. Theinner chamber is where the waste is composted and the outer chamber iswhere the liquids are stored. You will need to clean both chambers fromtime to time.

Once you have removed the compost, you can clean the inner chamber with a dilutedsolution of bleach and water. Use 1 cup of bleach per gallon of water. Be sureto rinse the chamber well before you put any new waste in it.

The outer chamber will need to be cleaned less often than the inner chamber.You can do this by dumping out any liquids that have collected in it andrinsing it with a diluted solution of bleach and water. Use 1 cup of bleachper gallon of water.

The next step is to clean the chamber itself with a mild bleach solution

With regular use, the Sun-Mar composting toilets will need to be cleaned every few months. To clean the unit, first flush several times to empty the bowl. The next step is to clean the chamber itself with a mild bleach solution. Be sure to rinse away all traces of bleach before using the unit again. It is also important to regularly check the vent fan to make sure it is free of debris so that it can operate properly.

Once the chamber is clean, you can replace the lid and cover

Once the chamber is clean, you can replace the lid and cover. Make sure that the O-ring on the lid is in good condition and not damaged. If it is, you will need to replace it. Once the lid is in place, you can screw on the cover.
