The Sun-Mar Excel is the best-selling self-contained composting toilet in North America. It is a high-capacity Bio-drum toilet that is simple to operate, features proven technology, and is extremely reliable.
The Excel was designed to accommodate families of up to 5 (3 adults) for full-time residential use, or families of up to 8 (6 adults) for seasonal use. With normal use, the Excel can evaporate all liquids; however, a 1" emergency drain is fitted at the rear and should be connected if the toilet is expected to get continuous use. This self-contained composting toilet is fitted with a 2" vent stack attached at the top rear of the unit that can be installed invisibly by running it through the wall and up the outside wall. For comfort, the Excel has a sturdy detachable footrest that can be removed to pull out the finishing drawer.
The included fan and heater run on AC power (115V). An AC/DC conversion kit is available separately above, which allows the Excel to operate in either 12-volt DC or non-electric mode. The toilet will continue to vent through the 2" vent using AC power when available, and will switch to a new 4" vent stack (included in the AC/DC kit) when AC power is not available. An optional 12-volt fan (included in the AC/DC conversion kit) can be installed in the 4" vent to use DC power to assist with venting.
The Excel was the first self-contained composting toilet to be certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF). It was tested by the NSF at maximum capacity for 6 continuous months, during which it produced no odor and produced a clean, safe compost. Only Sun-Mar self-contained units are listed for residential and cottage use by NSF, whose Standard #41 is the toughest composting performance standard in the world. This composting toilet literally sets the standard.
