CENTREX Central systems are work well for those who want a traditional looking toilet in the bathroom, and are able to put the central composting unit below the toilet. When you purchase a central system, you are buying the central composting unit that is installed in the lower level, below the toilet. The toilet fixtures to be installed in the bathroom are sold separately.

The CENTREX 1000 AC/DC is our hybrid CENTREX 1000 system, featuring both electric and non-electric features, and is designed for light to medium seasonal use. The unit measures 22-1/2" wide, so it is ideal for narrow spaces. This is a low flush central system that does not require a constant supply of electricity, but does need a plumbing connection for water. Therefore, if you have no power supply, frequent power outages or are using a generator for more than 8 hours per day, this unit would work well.

When electricity is being used, the CENTREX 1000 AC/DC has a sealed compartment in the base, which contains a thermostatically controlled heater. A fan assembly is also located in the front left side. The heater works to warm and evaporate liquid. The fan assembly creates a partial vacuum within the unit at all times, ensuring odorless operation.

If electricity is not being used, a 4" vent stack running vertically from the unit, up and out the roof, acts like the chimney on a wood stove, constantly drawing air upward to maintain the necessary partial vacuum. With or without electricity the CENTREX 1000 AC/DC will operate without odor. The unit does come with an optional 12 Volt fan assembly that can be installed in the 4" vent stack. If you live in an area that is subject to downdraft, we recommend that you install this fan which can be powered by a 12V battery or solar panel (power source not included for the fan, you must provide that separately).

NSF

CENTREX 1000 units have been tested and certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and are listed to comply with NSF-ANSI Standard #41, the only North American performance standard for composting toilets. This means that CENTREX 1000 systems are certified to produce a clean, dry compost that is safe and sanitary, while operating odorlessly. Visit the NSF website to see the CENTREX 1000's NSF Certification Listing.

How to operate the CENTREX 1000 AC/DC:
  • The first step in using your unit requires that you add some Compost Sure Blue (hemp stalk bulking material) into the Bio-Drum™ along with some Microbe Mix.
  • The composting toilet will process all brands of toilet paper without a problem.
  • Regular maintenance requires you to add a cupful of Compost Sure Blue per person, per day of use. Rotate the drum 5 or 6 full revolutions, every 2-3 days while the unit is in use. If the unit is only used for short periods like a weekend, just rotate before you leave.
  • Compost will need to be moved to the finishing drawer when the Bio-Drum™ is half to 2/3 full. Compost will drop into the finishing drawer when you release the drum lock and rotate the drum backwards. This process is quick, taking less than a minute, and you never have come in contact with fresh material.
  • Leave the compost in the finishing drawer for at least 4 weeks to finish and sanitize. In the finishing drawer, it will be isolated from contamination by fresh material in the toilet. You can remove the compost from the finishing drawer after 4 weeks, by easily pulling out the drawer. No tools are necessary.
  • Now you have finished compost which is clean, dry, non-offensive, and sanitary. It will look and smell just like any other regular compost that might come out of a garden composter. Your flower garden will love it.

  • When electricity is being used, the CENTREX 1000 AC/DC has a sealed compartment in the base, which contains a thermostatically controlled heater. A fan assembly is also located in the front left side. The heater works to warm and evaporate liquid. The fan assembly creates a partial vacuum within the unit at all times, ensuring odorless operation. Without electricity, the 4" vent stack maintains a partial vacuum, also preventing any odor.
  • A 12 Volt DC fan drawing 1.4 watts is included with the unit. This should be installed in the vent stack if your area may be subject to downdraft. (Please note, power source for the fan is not included.)
