Perfect for medium to heavy seasonal or light residential use,
the 2000 allows for both a longer composting cycle, and larger waste
volumes. The increased surface area in the evaporating chamber coupled
with the larger heating element also provides better evaporation
on electric units.
When used seasonally by up to 7-9 adults, compost will normally
only need removing annually each spring. In residential use compost
will have to be extracted more frequently.
The Centrex 2000 AC/DC features a 350 watt thermostatically controlled
heater in a sealed compartment under the unit and the standard Sun-Mar
30 watt turbo fan, with a 2" vent stack to remove the evaporate
and fresh odors. This may be used when the unit is in AC operation.
For easy switching between AC and DC mode, the Centrex 2000 AC/DC
requires that 2 vent stacks be installed to handle the separate
venting functions. The 2" vent is in use when the AC fan is
in operation, and the 4" vent is venting the unit passively
when there is no power available. As an extra option, we include
a 12 Volt 1.9 Watt fan with the Centrex 2000 AC/DC. You may want
to install this fan if the unit is to see maximum capacity use,
and you should install the 12 Volt fan if you have to put any bends
in the 4" vent stack, as you will then lose the "chimney
effect" advantage of a vertical stack, and will need to provide
air movement with the fan.
2000 series units are supplied with a 1" drain hose which
should be connected to the 1" drain at the bottom of the unit.

The Centrex 2000 AC/DC may be used with one or more Sealand
low flush toilets, purchased separately.
