Before installing your BioLet
- Check with your local health authorities and building inspector for regulations governing the installation of your BioLet.
- Ensure the flow of air into the bathroom is from the living area (not from outdoors). A 1” gap under the bathroom door or a vent in the bottom of the door or wall will ensure sufficient airflow to the toilet. Overhead vents and open windows should be used with caution as these may cause a negative pressure in the room and promote a back draft into the room through the toilet causing the presence of an unpleasant odor.
- Ensure there is 28” in front of toilet to accommodate removal of the tray.
- Ensure the temperature in the room where the toilet is to be installed can be maintained above 64°F during periods while the toilet is being used.
- Ensure the floor under the toilet is level and insulated or heated.
- Ensure there is a grounded 110 VAC outlet within 5’ of the toilet.
- Ensure the vent pipe will be able to extend at least 6” above anything within 10’ of it or above the peak of the roof whenever possible. (See the “Installation” and “Theory of composting toilets; maintaining aeration” sections)
- Ensure your installation can be achieved with the addition of no more than 2 – 45° angles.
- Verify that the total run for the vent pipe is less than 30’ in a straight up installation or 27’ if 2 – 45° angles are required. Consult with BioLet USA technical support if a longer run is required.
