Re: Dry Flush head installation/use experience?

Minne, there are parts of this world where people only wish they had enough money to BUY plastic bags full of fertilizer.

But of course, the great international secret cartel insists on burying it, to keep it off the market and keep the poor folk starving. Hardly fair, is it?

So bag it, age it, ship it, someone somewhere is just going to be thrilled to get it.

Raw human waste is not good fertilizer. Not clear whether our pharmaceuticals and chemical laden diet survives composting either.

No one said it was good fertilizer, just that some folks would be quite happy to take it.

I meant, raw sewage is not fertilizer at all.

Re: Dry Flush head installation/use experience?

"Night soil is a euphemism for human excrement collected at night from cesspools, privies, etc. and sometimes used as a fertilizer.[1] "

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_soil

Common practice to empty the bedpan into the rice fields in China, Korea, Vietnam...you've got a billion people eating that rice and that's not the only part of the world that's been doing this for umpteen thousand years.

It may not be fertilizer, but the farmers think it is. So be generous, give it to them.

Re: Dry Flush head installation/use experience?

It seems to me the Dry Flush is an intermediate step in the evolution process of waste handling. The Air Head (composting head) appears to be a quantum further along in the evolution as it needs no bags and no handling of "fresh waste" , only handling the dried waste. If I had to go with Dry Flush or Air Head my choice would be the composting Air Head. Just my opinion, of course.

This system looks like you could save yourself some money and just get a bucket and some Walmart bags...

In fact it looks like a slightly more enclosed version of this...

Nice setup. Just attach the toilet tissue holder to the bumper and a magazine rack on the tailgate.

I think that is the XLT Lariat model...

The Cadillac has a water hose bidet.

However, seriously, this system really would not even come close to working for cruising offshore, I mean you would have baggies made of plastic which you most definitely would not dump at sea.
