Did this video help you?

Rowans Down The Road: About how long does it take you to fill a bucket? And, not to sound gross but do you have any problem with staining on the side of the bucket?

Richard Cole: I cant and will not because of license issues however some people use two plastic 55 gallon drums for septic tanks,, its not 6000 dollars,,  maybe 200

DivaBClub: If you don't mind me asking; Why did you change your mind about the composting indoor toilet?  What problems were you having or experiencing?  Thanks in advance for your honesty.

Aynjill: What state is your cabin in-if I may ask?

Celestial0326: Ive seen people use fireplace ashes as well. What works better? Also, why is sawdust the best choice? Any particular type of sawdust best? Thanks, LIKED!

ouivalerie: Why do you need a toilet when you can just squat over a hole in the ground or even in the woods there?

buffcleb: We have an artesian well in town that I get water from... my long term plan to to harvest and filter rain water... good luck...

champagne5552000: I'm going off the grid next month. How do you get water?

yummydeliciousmagic: nice.

BRUCE LEE: Ladies like to have a area with wipes or alcohol hand disinfectant. I did this at my brothers waterless cabin.

AnnBearForFreedom: I have much the same setup, but mine is on standby duty for emergencies.. Mine isn't as pretty as yours, cuz I used my old hospital-styled bedside commode (I'm disabled), but it works just as well. I feel better knowing I have something in place for earthquakes (I'm in Calif), or any other extended disaster. Thanks!

Berry Love: pee as fertilizer :0.this is the first time i hear this.it is more worst than using cow or human waste compose because it goes in the ground.i won't want to touch plants with pee on them :0.

Berry Love: cool that you made your own.if i had one i also would rather throw it into the woods or in garbage instead of using it to grow veges.are you going to use an alternative method to make a shower ?.for example filling up tank with water that is used for sink and shower instead of using the plumbing stuff or whatever it is called?.sorry im not a builder so i hope that i make sense lol. i want to build my own eco friendly tiny house under 6k in near future.

Annunaki11: Humanure...so many possibilities! Phosphate , methane, anti I.R.S. missiles , burning bags , full of it , on unsuspecting dorm residence . The list is endless .

Annunaki11: How is it possible for the worms to live in the sealed buckets ? Surely the gases and the lack of air , would kill them.

buffcleb: as long as you keep thing covered there should be no odors... anything organic can be used as a covering... I use sawdust because there are lots of sawmills in my area... uncovered it would smell...

Bonita Wilson: Yes,$10,000 is too much.If you have access to a long hose or 2,on you tube is a guy who in a weekend drilled his own well with some simple pvc pipe fittings.He show you how.Then put in 5 to 6 - plastic 55 gallon drums connected for the septic.When the 1st gets full,it goes into the 2nd,and so on.With the last one with holes everywhere to drain.That would last 10 yrs.Or out here some dig a bury a bathtub or whatever underground to pipe the waste into.These idea don't cost much using used stuff.

buffcleb: thanks. things I would change. putting a lid on it would be advisable as I find mice in the bucket. Also when I built it the box that contains the orange deposit bucket I lined that up with the front of the toilet seat opening I would have inched that a bit forward... little girls tend to inch to the front and I had to staple a little tin splash guard to keep it in the bucket... I need to build a new one for my guest cabin. maybe over the winter I can do a video update...

girlwalkswithgoats: *.* i am in love with your toilet! handsome handywork! i really love the bin on the back for sawdust too! if you put a wooden lid on that as well it would look like a nicely built around regular toilet IMO. i'm hopin to get my own sawdust set up soon. though i will probably be the only one to use mine. do you have anything you would do differently if you were to do it again? things you really did or didnt like about it? :D loved this video!

TheRebel1974: Great video and idea. I am building a hunt cabin at th top of our mountain for use during hunting season. I plan on spending the night up there so I can have an advantage for the next morning hunt and needed a way to g to the bathroom without ruining our hunt with ourunwanted odors.
