Stus View from theLoo

My head is sore and stuffy, there must be pollen in the air. The chooks are following a mysteriously ordered ritual that takes them past my throne of a morn. The rooster is…well ….somewhere below me…Nonetheless, the chooks have reordered themselves and now a proud black lady wears her crest and leads the way. Nature abhors a vacuum.



Su's view from the Loo

As I sit and contemplate the sacred lady mountain from my wooden throne, the cold, distant goddess that fills my vista, I am reminded of the Winter that is almost upon us. My list of chores fills up with anticipation of clear skies and (finally, please…) a bit of drier weather. As the plants and animals slow down, we humans play catch up, tidying up around the edges of our wet wilderness to provide us with a semblance of sanity for the darker months to come.



First pre-cast concrete composting toilet ever?

Fri, 10/01/2010 - 17:05 — Compost Stu

We're proud to announce the completion of the first pre-cast concrete composting toilet designed and built by Pooh Solutions. The two piece concrete unit below is a variation on the site cast units pictured in the gallery. It has smaller wall cross sections (75mm) and a different sealable door arrangement. It also has a lot more steel re-inforcement and tilt lift lifting points allowing us to lift the sections onto a crane truck. There is a connely joint between the sections, allowing the two pieces to re-align perfectly at the destination site.



Maximus nears completion

The first pre-cast concrete clivus is about to be poured. After much deliberation, re-engineering and general procrastination, Pooh Solutions is proud to announce what we hope will become the benchmark for compost toilet design and construction in Australia. The Clivus Maximus uses the age old tried and tested Swedish sloping floor design of the popular cement block toilets in a pre-cast concrete option. The vestibule comes in two separate pieces, with the top half being of variable height to allow us to tailor design the units to suit individual site specific requirements.



Bio char doesn't work

Wed, 09/08/2010 - 10:42 — Compost Stu

We tried using biochar in the micromus to see if would make a suitable bulking agent. Obviously char contains plenty of carbon, an essential for any good bulking agent. HOWEVER, it is also very absorbent, and soaks up pee like a sponge. This created a perfect environment for the larvae of the drain fly, which soon took on plague proportions in the vestibule.
