The Biolan Simplett is a urine-separating toilet that can be installed directly on floor surface and it is suited for both indoor and unheated spaces. The toilet is odorless, hygienic and environmentally friendly. The functioning of the toilet is based on the separation of liquid and solid waste in the bowl part. No water or power supply is needed. The solids container can also use composting bags for easier emptying. Urine separation allows the characteristic hydrogen sulphide smell (the toilet smell) to be eliminated. The vent and covering of the feces with composting material (coco shells, peat moss, sawdust, etc.) prevents any bad odours. The Biolan Simplett is odorless, hygienic and environmentally friendly.
Year-round use of the toilet
If you install the Simplett toilet in a warm space, you may use it all year round. Then, its ventilation and liquid removal systems must be insulated in cold spaces, and the liquid removal pipe must be provided with a sufficient gradient to the leach bed to prevent the liquid from freezing in the pipe. . The Simplett is manufactured of frost-proof materials, so freezing does not damage it. Install the horizontal ventilation pipe in the unit so that the end of the pipe extends to above the inner receptacle to enable any condensation to flow into the inner container.
Lead the ventilation pipe through the rear wall with a hole of at least Ø 75 mm, according to the dimension drawing for the horizontal ventilation pipe. The hole to be made in the wall must be located slightly higher than the hole in the unit to allow any condensation to drain back into the solids container. Cut the horizontal ventilation pipe to a suitable length so that the angular union used will be connected to the vertical ventilation pipe with a curve as gentle as possible. . Extend the ventilation pipe above the roof ridge. The Ventilation Pipe Package, which is designed for the purpose, is also available. Any extra bends in the pipe will impede natural ventilation, and may cause odour problems. If you want, you can improve the ventilation by using the Biolan Wind Turbine Fan.
Route the urine removal pipe by the inner receptacle through the hole in the rear part of the unit. Make a hole of at least Ø 43 mm in the rear wall or in the floor for the liquid removal pipe. The pipe is flexible, and its length can be adjusted by pulling at the ends. Route the urine pipe into a leach bed or closed urine tank. When using the urine tank, the amount of urine per person, per day, is about 1–1.5 litres. During installation of the urine pipe, remember to provide a sufficient gradient (2–3 cm/m) to enable the liquid to flow down without obstruction. Therefore, the hole to be made in the wall must be located lower than the hole in the unit. If you want, you can lay the urine tank on its side or bury it in the ground.
