Re: composting toilet-should we do it

Composting or dessicating...call it what you will...in my view the composting head is the way to go. I have been using my C-head for eight months. It beats my old throne and flushing piping and holding tank and pump out piping and macerator pump and three way valve and sea **** for salt water flushing and sea **** for overboard discharge and associated electrical wiring in the following ways:
- No smell
- Simplicity of use
- Simplicity of "discharge"
- Almost zero maintenance and maintenance expense
- No flooding risk (no thru hulls and sea cocks)
- Lower initial cost
- Frees up space for additional battery and storage

YMMV.
