Hi folks,

I've been researching waste systems for an extra bathroom on our property. I've been looking into waterless/dry compost types and a worm farm waste based system. I contacted a Worm Waste system company in Victoria and they are trying to find an existing client who'll let me visit to see their system in operation. But I wondered if anyone in LFG has a worm based waste system or knows someone who would be happy to let me visit to check it out.

For a dry composting loo you would find a 'Clivus Multrum' to be worm friendly. I built my first one about 35 years ago now and stocked it with compost worms. They thrived and provided high nutrient compost at the 'bottom' end of the composting slope. Basically a large box built on a 30% slope with aeration tubes and a breather pipe with a door at the base to remove the oldest compost. A web search should reveal plenty of plans and sales promotions for these as they are standard remote area roadside loos these days.

Louise, do you mean toilet or shower room? If toilet, we have an aerobic/anaerobic digesting toilet in Pallara. Designed to prevent polluted water going to groundwater in Island locations or the highlands of New Guinea. If you're interested, drop me a line to come visit on 0488266069.
