Re: Composting Toilets vs. Holding Tank
I suppose if the makers and owners of these toilets would just call them dessicating toilets, which is what they are, and stop pretending they are composting toilets, which is what they are not, I'd be a lot happier.
Agreed. Although, this is true of any "composter." Composting takes time. Your home composter is really just a pile of fruits and veggies until it is given enough time to sit and let the microbes do their work. So too with these heads. But you're right, those living full-time with these heads will produce dried, desiccated feces. It will not go to completion before being dumped.
Why go fast, when you can go slow.
