Re: Air Head Composting Toilet or Similar Mfg.

I saw this thread and have just read through all of the posts.

Thanks to all for sharing your experiences about the composting toilet. Lori & I had looked at one of them at the Annapolis show and were considering converting our original system to one of them this year. We will be installing the new toilet and removing all of the hoses, holding tank and pumps etc. We think we have decided on the Air head and will be looking again at the Annapolis show this year in October. We hope to have our new boat ready to launch at the end of this year.

I installed a mushroom vent when I installed my Airhead. if seas are bad enough, a few twists and it's closed. I like that I went with the mushroom vent rather than a taller dorade box.

Depends on where it is located, and the characteristics of your boat, and how you sail it I suppose. In our case, I replaced the old holding tank deck drain cap with a mushroom vent. It is possible for us to take enough water over the rail and onto the deck to have water enter, but so far this has never happened. If we were facing large enough breaking seas I'd just close the mushroom vent.

Thanks fuzz. I would have expected better from a Formosa owner.

People who blast a business with their first post nearly never turn out to be what they seem. Now me on the other hand, I've got a history here.... who should I blast?

Re: Air Head Composting Toilet or Similar Mfg.

We've owned a Airhead and two Natureheads and just received our new C-head a few days ago for our new used boat. Can't wait to install and use it!

I fixed flies by adding a couple handfuls of diatomaceous earth per composting charge

Generally they can handle extra wet deposits, but you may have to top up with some extra of what ever dryish media you are using. (Coconut core, or peat moss) If there is an extended set of wet deposits I imagine you may get too much moisture in there, and in that case you just dump it out and start over.
