Re: To flush or not to flush... that IS the the question. (H2o)

Hey... question, has anyone ever tried to reproduce the manufactured composting toilet system where the solids and liquids are mixed with mechanical mixers? I know SeanF had made his own and eventually added a urine diverter but what if one could build a system complete with mixers and ventilating fans? The manufactured composting toilet companies boast about no urine diverting so they must be doing something different!? I do think they heat it as well, and I have toyed with the idea of putting a water bed heater under the throne to bake things a little but can you imagine the smell of cooking poop ? I guess thats where a good seal would come in and a good cover of peat moss every movement...

Just saw the thread...

I've been using this toilet of mine own design and invention for about three years (off and on.) Using it now. Very little smell outside, and none inside. One has to maintain it, but it's not the worst chore in the world.

If I had it to do over again, I'd build more space efficient cube-ish fiberglass tubs to replace the 5 gallon buckets. However, 5 gallon buckets are cheap and easy to come by, especially when one is building in a hurry. More storage volume would be good if more than one person is using it regularly. Going to square tubs would increase the container volume 25%

This company has some buckets that might work....
