Did this video help you?

Ethelyn Hinrichs: Could a person put coconut fiber on the bottom (worms love it), then soil with a couple worms, then peat moss ...and poop! ...topped with peat moss. What do you think? Tell me, I'm new and thinking on this.

doucepoesie: Thumbs UP

bbo40: interesting video, informative

Lou jones: does the tubing at the bottom have holes in it > if not i dont know what the purpose of the tubing is ?? bajalou2@yahoo.com

SirLobsterman: if you're going to only use it a couple times a year, wouldn't it be more efficient to use a 5 gallon bucket to hold it in and not the whole drum? seems ridiculous to have to empty such a big thing that's rarely used. I think having a bucket and emptying it periodically into a composting drum would be much easier and definitely more sanitary than this set up.

tentamalaska: what is the difference between this and an outhouse? The poo still lands in the dirt. I fail to see the advantage.

MrArglbargle: Im not sure. Three months? You should build one and let us know :^)

Jen Ju: How often do you empty this? What do you do with the compost?

MrArglbargle: It comes with holes in it.

MrArglbargle: Fixed, Thanks.

FORMETOKNOWONLY: What do you do with it when it's full?

MrArglbargle: I empty it about once a year when I go up to me land. I usually use the compost as a soil amendment for when I plant a tree. You do want the compost to sit aside and "rest" for awhile before using it.

NOSHEOL TARSUS: I wish I knew so much more about composting. Thanks.

MrObveous777: if one person were to use it on a daily basis how long would it take to fill up of course if I had the vent coming out of the roof

MrObveous777: thanks =]

MrArglbargle: An outhouse is often a hole in the ground. Outhouses are illegal in allot of places in the U.S. because the waste can leach into the water table. A composting toilet is self contained, it gets the waste to a composted state that can be used as a soil amendment. (for non edible plants). Many commercial composting toilets can be used indoors as well.

MrArglbargle: It's used a couple of times a year by four to six people for a few day's. A five gallon bucket would not be large enough. I have also upgraded the system and made a new video. Check it out! it works well for my needs.

MsJusticeWarrior: Thank you very much. I've been interested in them for a long time and your straightforward instructions are the best I've seen.

baddoggie101: Toilet paper smoilet paper, I use a spatula.

MrArglbargle: Yes it does have holes

dead4fun: @Nanaknows60 why? It's been working so far.

MrArglbargle: Usually it's broken down pretty good, when I get there in the spring. I try to plant a tree every year so I use it as a soil amendment for the tree. No problems yet. I have also upgraded this to a urine diverting toilet. I made a new video.

SirLobsterman: read the last part of the comment " I think having a bucket and emptying it periodically into a composting drum would be much easier and definitely more sanitary than this set up." it's much easier and cleaner to have the composter separate.

gvbhdghdf: what if its from a human who doesn't eat meat

EasternMerchant: @cherylcholley from what I hear, just dirt itself contains staph infections if comes into contact with open wounds. Nature can be beautiful, fragrant, therapeutic, refreshing, but it can be so nasty too hehe From what I remember in high school biology, flora and fauna both discharge dead old cells, plantlife seems to thrive with both since the beginning of times.

Cheryl Cholley: People around the world have been using composted "humanure" for centuries, but it can be used for non-food purposes as well if you want to be extra safe. Just put it on ornamental vegetation and you never have to worry. Personally I have so much animal manure, I have no need to use "humanure" on food-producing crops.

tinker38801: kind of like a cat box..............

MrArglbargle: Thanks!

Kathleen Ellenberger: Never use human or meat-eating animal's feces for compost! Only plant eaters like horses, cows, rabbits, chicken manure is safe for gardens and it has to be old or cool.

s delcano: If you use it only 2x a year, what has been your experience since you`ve had it installed (2010?) vis-a-vis the length of time it takes to compost, and to be ready to use?

Bill: haha.. you said you will need a stool...
