Added to our product line in
1999, the BioLet Basic is designed as the answer to your
sanitation needs, where water and electricity are not reliable
resources or not available. While we have added automatic
mixing to some models, the BioLet Basic has a conveniently located
handle that is turned after each use. This easy maintenance
insures accurate mixing of the compost and accelerates the
microbes' activity. Since the Basic has no electrical components
it lacks the ability to evaporate most of the liquids therefore,
there is a drain tube required to discharge the liquids to a
holding tank or leech bed. The BioLet Basic is the perfect
solution for those cabins and cottages "out of the way"
or that outbuilding without electrical service. As is true of all
BioLet models, the Basic is equipped with a compost cover that
hides the material from view and opens automatically when sitting
- another feature engineered exclusively by BioLet and with a seat
height of only 19.5", the BioLet Basic is very comfortable to
use and it has no awkward footstool to hamper children and the
elderly. Install a BioLet Basic as a secondary system or as a
permanent solution, anywhere!
BioLet Basic is an on-site, self
contained, biological toilet, where human waste (feces, urine and
toilet paper) are collected, excess liquid drained and solid
material is decomposed to a soil-like, hygienically safe product
(humus) without producing an unpleasant odor.
BioLet Basic needs no water, nor
chemicals, and has little discharge from the unit necessitating a
connection to a sewer or septic tank. As with all BioLet's models,
the BioLet Basic utilizes the natural processes of evaporation and
decomposition and is designed to maintain a warm and humid
environment inside the unit, encouraging biological degradation of
the waste through the scavenging action of the aerobes.
Within a relatively short period
of time, human waste and toilet paper are efficiently transformed
into a small amount of fertile compost. The BioLet Basic reduces
the volume of the waste entering the toilet by approximately 90%,
leaving only 10% of an end-product, which can be recycled back to
nature in a safe way, and without polluting the environment.

pipe. This air flow serves 3 purposes:

aerobic bacteria to accelerate the decomposition process.
