The unit requires neither water nor a sewer to operate just electric power. The operating principle of the unit is to freeze the waste. The unit cools the waste to -15 degrees Centigrade, at which temperature the microbial activity stops. Thanks to the heat lock formed by the condensing air, the Icelett is pleasant to sit on, and the seat does not feel cold.
Installing the Icelett
When locating the Biolan Icelett, reserve sufficient space for use and maintenance of the unit, and ensure the supply of electricity. The toilet unit must not be attached to either the ventilation system or the sewer. The unit is placed on the floor. It is advisable to plan the composting of toilet waste or its disposal in some other way in connection with installation of the toilet unit.
Placing in the toilet space
The unit shall be installed in a warm space indoors. Installation of the toilet unit in a space with floor heating or in the immediate vicinity of a radiator or any other heat source is not recommended. Heat increases the unit’s electricity consumption. Optimal room temperature is 10-22 degrees Centigrade.
The unit shall be installed on a level. For this purpose, it is equipped with legs that can be adjusted by turning.
When moved, the unit should be gripped at as low a point as possible.
Wait one hour before starting the unit, in order to allow the oil to return from the pipeline.
- Check that the unit is in a horizontal position. If necessary, adjust the unit using its adjustable feet.
- Press the bottom of the bag onto the bottom of the vessel, and fold the edges of the bag over the vessel’s rim.
- Put the vessel in place inside the unit. The vessel is properly in place, when the seat ring and the cover close well.
- Plug in the unit and turn it on using the switch on the rear wall – the green signal light will illuminate.
- The red signal light remains lit until the temperature inside drops to -12 °C, but the toilet can be used immediately.
What you can put into the Icelett
The Icelett is intended for composting toilet waste. Do not put into the unit anything that hampers the composting process, does not compost or is a fire hazard, such as:
debris, sanitary towels
detergents, washing water
matches, ash, cigarette butts
Using bulking material
You do not need to use litter in the Biolan Icelett. Adding it to the composter is sufficient. For visual reasons, bedding material, such as for example Biolan Compost and Toilet Bulking Material or Biolan Peat, can be applied to the left matter. On the other hand, using these substances reduces the need to add litter during the composting stage. A peat-based bulking material must be damp when applied, so that it will absorb moisture and not create dust.
The Biolan Icelett shall be emptied when it fills up. The emptying interval depends on the frequency of use.
Turn the mouth of the bag inside the vessel and lift the vessel out of the unit.
Compost the waste in a composter for household waste or garden waste.
To bind liquid, apply litter abundantly to the compost before adding toilet waste.
Break the surface of the bag using, for example, a pitchfork or a Compostmixer. Finally, cover with a generous layer of bulking material.
Check whether ice has formed on the edges of the seat bowl. If necessary, melt the ice and dry the walls of the bowl before putting a new bag into place.
The Biolan Icelett shall be cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth. Any common domestic cleaning agents can be used. Avoid using too much water.
Vacuum out the dust from the rear wall once a year.
