Emptying the seep liquid canister
Empty the seep liquid canister as required, however, at least once a year. Seep liquid, rich in nutrients, can be utilized as a source of nitrogen for compost. In particular, this improves the composting process of garden compost that is rich in carbon but poor in nutrients. Seep liquid can also be used as fertilizer for ornamental plants in the yard and garden. A safe dilution ratio is 1:5. Undiluted seep liquid can also be used, but the area must then be carefully watered after the application to avoid early blight. Fertilizing in the autumn is not recommended so as not to disturb the preparation of perennial plants for winter. The recommended storing time before use as fertilizer is approximately one year.
The thermal seat of the Populett 200 composting toilet can be cleaned using any common domestic cleaning agents. The liquid pipe and the liquid trough under the intermediate bottom shall be checked once a year and cleaned as necessary. There is no need to wash the toilet tank in connection with emptying it.

The Biolan Populett 200 composting toilet is installed half way through the floor. The unit height is 880mm from base to the seat so 430mm of the unit needs to be below the floor level so that a seat height of 450mm is achieved. The base should be stable, ideally a concrete pad and not below ground level as this may flood during if it rains. It is often best achieved by having a removable section at the back for the shed to allow the compost bins to be changed.
Installing the vent pipe
The Ø 110mm diameter vent pipe runs from the toilet, straight up though the roof without bends. Bends in the vent pipe impede natural ventilation, causing odour problems. The non electric Biolan fan can be installed to boost ventilation. When installed the vent pipe is not in the toilet room but outside running up the external wall.
Diverted liquid management
Depending on how many people will be using the Populett 200 you may choose to divert the urine. If it is anticipated that many users will be urinating (only) then it is recommend to set the unit in urine diverting mode. The uncontaminated urine can either be collected in a container or discharged to ground if conditions allow.
Seep liquid management
There is a liquid outlet from the bottom of the Biolan Populett 200 composting toilet which allows excess liquid that has seeped through the compost to drain out. This liquid can go to a container, be treated by Soutis or be allowed to soak into the soil if conditions allow.
