Re: composting toilet-should we do it

We switched to a composting head after 3 years, 100+ hours, and $3000+ dollars of trying to eliminate odors from our conventional holding tank system. We finally gave up. Our tank is only 18 gallons. If we could pump it out twice a week, or install a 50 gallon tank, then I think we could have make it work. Neither is practical for us however.

As Mike often points out, the "composting" head does have a learning curve. As pointed out above, the urine separating heads are not really composting heads, but rather desiccating. Either way they are completely odor free (at least for the solids) which is the solution we were looking for.

We are only a few months into ours, but so far it is by far the best head we have had. If your wife wants to talk to my wife, just IM me and I will give you her email.
