In my opinion, it is a total waste of time, energy and money, to buy a composting toilet. Okay, so maybe I have been watching too many homesteader / prepper videos, where "composting toilets" was the topic of the day. But, I like simplicity in my life. Having to deal with one of those seems like a complete waste of time. In fact, I saw where one guy was forced to install a proper water run toilet in his home. (I believe it was a fairly recent video on the "living Off Grid McGarvey style" YouTube channel, if memory serves.) Granted, I don't have to go through a lot of the regulations that are in place in the US, as well as in other countries. But, I can't understand why people would install them in a remote, BOL, when it is so simple to install a proper toilet. I mean, do you folks, who reside in very remote (however remote that may be) locations, still have to have some government inspector to come out to your place, just to make sure it is within their rules & guidelines? I would think that, when building a place in a very rural location, one would not have to necessarily follow every rule and guideline set for their urban counterparts. For me, that would be a big part of living in the middle of 20, 40, 80, or 100 acres. To get away from all the government red tape and the pr*cks that enforce it. Here, you just dig a hole in the ground, install some concrete sewer / drain rings, the number depending on what size you may want it to be, fill in around it and put a concrete lid on top of it. Run a water supply to it, or not - and have your operational proper toilet. For me, as I am fairly sure I have stated in the past, a bum gun is also a (very) necessary item to have. So, pressurized water to my toilet is a must. Not to mention, all the monies I have saved on not having to buy toilet tissue over the years. Sorry for the rant. I am going to build an outhouse now, and take my Sears catalog with me, and a few corn cobs.
