[QUOTE=HeartsContent;816159]2. Pooh gets dumped somewhere on land, could be laced with fecal bacteria that can cause sickness (unless you store it for a few years - yah right!).
Years? Bit of an huperbolic statement. Consult holding times at 30 C on page 5 of this EPA fact sheet. http://water.epa.gov/aboutow/owm/upl...07_14_comp.pdf
Seems summer storage in a container in the sun ought to kill things in a matter of weeks, provided it is kept aerobic, and moist. Hey if you want to flush and forget, taking no more responsibility on, have at it and pump ut or dump to a land head.. I myself enjoy the challenges of doing appropriate disposal independent of the municipality.
