Re: Composting Toilets vs. Holding Tank

Godot, I've read somewhere on a blog that a fellow put a bead of silicone caulk around the urine diverter to solve this problem. The bead of caulk raises the lip around the edge of the trap door. I can see how this would work. In fact, if I have any complaint about the Nature's Head (and I really don't- it's a great product!), it's that they could have raised the lip around the trap door a little higher to prevent any liquids finding their way into the composting chamber. My head is mounted in a for-aft orientation so I haven't found any problems with either tack, but guests sometimes manage to get some liquids into the composting chamber (peeing standing up probably!!).
