Re: Composting Toilets vs. Holding Tank

Every "composting" toilet on a boat is just a wet/dry separated holding tank.

A real composting toilet would need about a hundred yards of inclined ramp under it, so the feces could actually compost during the 90 days it took to get to the bottom of the ramp. The same way it needs about 90 days in every actual composting toilet.

Buy a box of clumping kitty litter, skip the coconut husks, the separators, and the flies. Let's face it guys, there are no composting toilets on boats. What comes out is just dried feces, not compost at all.
