How the heck does a DRY FLUSH tiny house toilet work??

So, these "dry flush" toilets are relatively new to the tiny house world, and as of recent, I kept hearing of more and more of them being used, but there was never a video to show "just whats up?" with these units. I mean, how the heck do they work without stinking??

Well, I recently got to spend a night at the rather-darn-cool "Getaway Boston" tiny house compound, and lo and behold, they had a dry flush toilet.

While they are incredibly easy to use, I'm still not sure if I'd go this route (namely because of the plastic-based disposal bags you need to use). That said, its unbelievably simple as an install a system like this, it works like a charm, and the toilets themselves are rather traditional in their look (so as to not scare the already squeamish).

Take a look at this video.... its explains, and shows. quite a bit more....

  4. So it's basically an enlargified, automated Diaper Genie.

    Hopefully they have the smell problem figured out. We had a Diaper Genie. Even with many turns of the plastic, the thing would stink up the baby's room. Maybe the bags were to thin/permeable. We ended up passing it on to someone who really wanted it and just kept the dirty diapers in a container lined with a shopping bag outside the back door.

    1. As a mom and granny, I changed too many diapers to be squeamish. I have had a bucket and soil composting toilet on and off for years. I found I disliked flushing waste into the water supply. I have very poor soil here in the mountains, and my personal waste is enriching the soil of my pinyon-juniper forest.
