Sanitizer FAQs

The Inexpensive Remedy to Failed Septic Systems,
Expensive Sanitation Infrastructure, and
Remote Location Sanitation Needs

The Sanitizer  Evaporative Toilet™ (Patent No. 9,301,659 B1 and 9,867,511) is an all-American product and the only system that sanitizes human waste on site continuously! It is available exclusively through Clean Up America, Inc.

The Sanitizer Toilet™ is a vast improvement over traditional sanitation systems because it:

  • Protects the environment by not discharging waste
  • Does not use water or chemicals or require pumping or dumping
  • Eliminates expensive sewer infrastructure and sanitation water treatment systems
  • Does not emit odors because the waste is sanitized for safe and easy disposal
  • Is compact 24” l x 17” w x 20” h,  portable (43 lbs.) and ADA compliant
  • Is easy to install and inexpensive to operate
  • Is American invented, manufactured, distributed and serviced
  • Is durably constructed and supported by toll-free customer service
  • Dramatically reduces water bills by saving traditional “flush” water.

The Sanitizer Toilet™ is ideal for many sanitation challenges.
Failed septic systems can be retrofitted with The Sanitizer™ by simply shutting off the septic toilet and using the rest of the system for graywater only.

The Sanitizer™ can improve land value that before could not be developed because traditional sanitation was impossible.

If you have a cabin, hunting/fishing camp, houseboat or sports area, The Sanitizer™ will help you enjoy them more!

The Sanitizer™ can be supportive of our military personnel from the training field to the battlefield making it safer and more convenient for them.

Emergency response teams working in disaster areas especially those involving flooding can instantly solve the sanitation problems by deploying The Sanitizer™ either on trailers or to replace failed systems as water subsides.

Recreational vehicles, boats and emergency response vehicles can be adapted to The Sanitizer™ technology, eliminating that terrible purging of on-board bilge into the environment.

Why is The Sanitizer™ different from other sanitation systems?
Other forms of sanitation focus on removing human waste to some form of treatment system. Water based systems result in contaminating water to transport waste to treatment facilities that clean the water only to be polluted again with more waste. Composting processes the waste into some form of organic fertilizer or soil conditioner. Pit latrines need to be pumped and dumped in treatment facilities. But The Sanitizer™ sanitizes the waste on site and renders it harmless for safe disposal in the household trash – safer in fact than baby diapers or kitty litter.

How does The Sanitizer™ operate?
The Sanitizer™ dries the solids and evaporates the liquids with continuous air flow, and it sanitizes the solids with intermittent heat.

How does The Sanitizer™ treat solids?
Within The Sanitizer™ pathogens are safely killed by heat. The air flows over solid waste and reduces its original mass. The sanitized waste is then ready for subsequent disposal in the household waste more safely than baby diapers or kitty litter.

Does The Sanitizer™ require water or chemicals to operate?
No, water or chemicals are not needed to operate The Sanitizer™. 

Does The Sanitizer™ require electricity to operate?
The Sanitizer™ operates with approximately three kilowatts of electricity daily that is provided by normal household current, generator or solar panels.

Is protective wear required to remove treated waste from The Sanitizer™?
Protective wear is not needed in disposing of the sanitized waste. The process simply requires gloves to empty the waste pan. 

How often must The Sanitizer™ waste be removed?
The frequency by which waste must be removed depends upon the number of uses. The average family of four will dispose of the sanitized waste every few days. 

Why is The Sanitizer™ a Zero Discharge Sanitation System?
“Zero Discharge Sanitation” means that no harmful effluent is discharged into the environment, especially the water source. The Sanitizer™ evaporates liquid into the atmosphere and sanitizes and dehydrates solid waste for hygienic disposal. 

What are the ecological benefits of The Sanitizer™?
The ecological benefits of The Sanitizer™ are many. There is no discharge and therefore no danger of contaminating water sources. There is a considerable saving of water, a minimal use of electricity, and this system makes it possible to use the remaining household wastewater for recycling purposes such as outdoor watering. 

How much water does The Sanitizer™ save?
Traditional sanitation systems that use water consume approximately 4,000 gallons per person per year of “flush water”. 

How well will The Sanitizer™ operate in adverse climatic conditions?
The Sanitizer™ is designed to operate in any climatic situation. 

Can The Sanitizer™ help save a failing septic system?
The Sanitizer™ eliminates blackwater from the septic system and reduces the volume of water by eliminating the flushing. This can significantly reduce the strain on the septic system but be sure to consult a professional wastewater service person before proceeding.

Can The Sanitizer™ be used in disaster situations?
The Sanitizer™ is often ideal for disaster situations, especially those that result in flooded and fouled sanitation systems. The Sanitizer™ is compact, light weight and portable. It is easy to ship and install and can be used immediately upon arrival. Since it sanitizes waste on site and does not discharge it there is no added pollution to the disaster area and no water or chemicals are required. Operating off household electricity, The Sanitizer™ can also be mounted on trailers for greater portability and service to displaced populations.
