    vent pipe is very beneficial Metal is good to conduct heat better painting black is also beneficial Attaching a small computer fan which are all 12v to the pipe is also I have set up in areas where airflow is restricted i e wet damp frosty locations in the middle of winter The fan can be attached easily directly to a car battery and draws VERY little energy The pipe is best tapped into the highest point possible and if you vessel chamber underneath is large enough you can have it next to the toilet seat at the same level many systems you buy have shoots to deposit through with the chamber below This is great for regulations to ensure deposited material is not able to build up to a height that is near to ones backside However because the deposited material mounds up under the shoot heat moisture all rises up the shoot and condensates under the seat In this circumstance it is important to have the vent coming off the top of the shoot rather than the chamber This is a design problem I have seen with many systems especially not fan assisted So vents need to be at the highest possible location Another tip on this front is to use the off cut where you cut out the hole for the toilet seat and put a backing piece of timber on it larger than the off cut to create a plug So in between deposits use this instead of putting the seat down Any condensation that might occur if the system is not vented properly will occur on the plug rather than the underside of the toilet seat Lastly I suggest having this type of toilet system on the south side of a dwelling or in a shaded location This reducing the composting happening while the chamber is in place and leave the composting upto the phase when it is set aside This reduces heat build up and again condensation levels I have set up a variety of sealing systems the best being old seals for car door frames It fits perfectly over the lips of many containers Anyway I hope this helps some what Richard I could go on a lot about this but is hard on a keyboard opposed to in person Great discussion points though Thanks James Reply Carol says September 20 2011 at 12 56 pm Thanks Lisa We get that question lots too Why separate pee and poo Your answer is great The quakes in Christchurch and Japan have helped people here in Portland Oregon in the Cascadia Subduction Zone is overdue for a big quake focus on preparedness Apartment dwellers will especially welcome your model they can easily preposition the materials and instructions needed to build the no mix twin toilets while shared wheelie bins are close at hand And as separation of pee and poo is better understood we see more people adopting composting toilets BEFORE the emergency as well

    we built a garage but couldn t afford the septic tank and plumbing I have been using this solution for over a year now while living in the garage We have just received approval back to proceed with building a septic tank and will look at adding a conventional bathroom on to our garage until we are able to build I will be happy to have a flushing toilet for our guests who might be uncomfortable with our unusual toilet arrangements but during fine weather I still plan to use our outhouse and compost the waste The trees that are closer to our shed and receive most of the diluted pee are doing fabulously and are clearly love the extra nutrients they receive Thank you heaps for sharing your knowledge with us and creating this site Also happy to demonstrate the system to anyone passing through Birdlings Flat We live in an environmentally sensitive area and using wheelie bins to compost the solids helps protectour lakes from further pollution Despite the unpleasantries of emptying the buckets I believe that this system is more sustainable for our local conditions Reply Katie Kinstedt says February 10 2012 at 11 45 am Hello all Great work I am doing a project about the application of ecological sanitation in disaster relief at the Technically University of Hamburg in Germany I am interested in the design you have presented on this website for Christchurch and I was wondering if you have any statistics on how many households have implemented this design as an alternative to the chemical toilets provided in the relief effort Also do you have any feedback about whether you believe this approach could replace the chemical toilets provided for emergency assistance in the future Thanks in advance for your help Sincerely Katie
