Full of... Theories

Thu, 10/16/2008 - 15:25 — Compost Stu

Another of my favourite theories will not amuse the fairer sex. In the course of my work, I have recommended compost toilets to nearly every client I have met. The response is fairly predictable. If I am dealing with the "man of the house", he assures me that he would love a composting toilet but his partner would never allow it. If I am dealing with the "lady of the house", the discussion is very brief. Most western women are faecal phobic! It is just the case.

Shooting the breeze

On a windy day at Barkers Vale, where I live, the bamboo whispers and the she-oaks whistle as the toilet whirly spins at amazing speed, sucking massive volumes of air over and through the pile of humanure in the chamber below. I like to think that some of the "essence of compost" is being spread all over my orchard nearby. The last time I cleaned out the whirly, there was some dried toilet paper stuck up in it. Pretty amazing when you consider that the flue is at least 4m high. I've heard of problems occurring with toilets that have a mesh or gauze wire across the flue.
