The Excel is ideal for residential use having been tested by NSF with 4 adults using the unit residentially for six months of continual use. In this test, the criteria were that the unit operated odorlessly and produced clean, safe compost. Of course, it did, and the Excel is presently the ONLY self-contained unit in the world to be tested, certified, and listed by NSF.
The Excel is also ideal for cottage use as the primary toilet at your camp or cabin, or for light commercial or workplace use. The 2" vent is attached at the top back of the unit and can be installed invisibly by running it through the wall and up the outside wall. For comfort the Excel has a sturdy detachable footrest which can be removed to pull out the finishing drawer.
Although the Excel can normally evaporate all liquids, a 1/2" emergency drain is fitted at the rear and this should be connected if the unit is to be used residentially or heavily, or if prolonged power outages are expected.
