Many of you have asked questions about using the Nature’s Head in cold weather, and also about leaving the unit unattended in areas that will freeze.
The Nature’s Head can be used in all climates. The composting process in the solids bin will stop during very cold weather when the material reaches 32° F (0° C). The biological process of composting decomposes organic material under aerobic (oxygen is required) conditions, promoting the growth of aeobic bacteria. These bacteria heat up the composting material as they work. However, in colder weather, the microbes are unable to keep the compost warm enough to keep the decomposition going. In cold weather, microbes will not die, but simply go into hibernation.
Composting works best starting at 55°F and pathogens are killed at 120° F.
If your toilet is installed in a cabin that will be empty during the cold season, it is not necessary to empty the solids chamber, as decomposition will start again when the chamber starts to warm again in the spring. If you are going to be away for 10 days or more, we suggest you unplug the fan so that the solids will not get too dry or hard. One thing to keep in mind is that you should not attempt to turn the agitator handle when the material in the bin is frozen. Some of our rural customers use a straw bale “bunker” outside to collect the waste, covering it with more straw, essentially insulating the material, thus the microbes have a longer time to work.
The urine bottle, should be emptied before leaving your toilet for the winter. Although the freezing temperature of urine is lower than water, it may freeze. In this case it will behave as bottle of liquid put in your freezer …. the freezing will cause the liquid to expand, and it will either come out the top, or push out the sides of the container.
