    Default How do you Poo?

    Just wondering what percentage of TBN readers use septic systems versus connected to a municipal sewer system.

    LOL... Unusual question, but OK. We're a long way from the closest sewer line.
    Septic here.

    Any particular reason for the research, or just curiosity?

    Septic here.

    This is really a political question, and the researcher is a plant from the feds. There will be a push for equal poo.

    I have a septic system and even though the thread is now closed, I hope I have a "Right to Privacy".

    House is on a septic system. However, I have installed an "Envirolet" low-flush remote composting system in the barn for the horse boarders.

    It is rather unique in that it combines a Dometic porcelain marine vacu-flush toilet with a remote electric composting unit which is located in another room. No compost smell because the toilet flushes with water. The vacuum/macerator unit discharges into a composter instead of a holding tank, as it would on a boat.

    The riding horse boarders, all women, love it because it is more like a conventional flush toilet than those rather unpleasant composting units that you sit on top of. This system was not inexpensive though.

    My father and I are both municipal sewer even though he lives out in the sticks 600 feet from the road.

    Just one less thing you have to worry about maintaining.
