Home Forums General Discussion building a legal composting toilet? Re: building a legal composting toilet?


I think the book above does not work well….As far as using saw dust, it needs a lot of urine or fish emulsion and should be dry when adding it to the tumbler. Peat moss works much better.

A tumbler will aerate the compost there by forcing the bacteria to grow, unlike a barrel that is not turned. It should heat up to 140 degrees or more, maybe impossible in the winter, unless under ground or in a warm room.
