Method of Operation:

Simply use the toilet. The toilet can be used approximately 40 - 50 times before burning is necessary. The full mark is the smaller leg cast into the combustion chamber on the right hand side between the two larger reinforcing legs. Once the waste reaches the top of this leg, it is necessary to burn whether it is one use or one hundred uses.

Before starting the burn cycle, be sure to add the one packet of anti-foam into the liquid portion of the waste...not on top of the mountain. Place the cover plug on and set your timer for four hours (if altitude exceeds 4,000 feet, you may have to set the timer for up to six hours). Start the burn cycle in the same way you would start your barbecue.

The burn cycle is very similar to boiling potatoes on the stove. As the combustion chamber heats up, the liquid starts to boil. As the liquid boils, it boils away the solids. If there is not a lot of toilet paper and it is allowed to dry out, it will eventually hit the bottom of the combustion chamber and turn to ash. All that should be left after the four hour burn cycle is half a cup of sterile ash that you can either vacuum up when cool, or scoop up and put on your rose garden.

The combustion chamber never needs to be washed as it does work as a self cleaning oven and disinfects itself with each burn cycle. The toilet will shut off when the time expires or the high limit switch will shut it down if it overheats because all of the liquid has been boiled away.
