Product Overview

The Compost Wizard EnviroTumbler makes composting easy and fun. With its revolutionary, compact design, you save space and waste. This compost tumbler comes in two pieces. No assembly required. You'll be ready to compost in less than a minute. The dark plastic absorbs the suns heat, allowing your kitchen scraps, yard waste, and other organic matter to quickly break down into fresh compost (hummus). Not only do you get to enjoy fresh earthy compost, you can also harvest the excess compost tea from the batch. As you turn the drum, any excess liquid drains out into the base. You can then drain the stored tea directly onto plant roots. Compost tea is some of the best, most nutrient packed, natural fertilizer you can get. With the low profile, you can rest assured that your composter won't tip over easily in the wind. You can also remove the drum from the base to quickly roll your batch to any desired location around the lawn. You can then use your compost like mulch in gardens or spread it on your lawn. The moisture and nutrients will gradually seep into the ground. Ask any gardener and they'll tell you that compost and fresh rain water give some of the best, heartiest plants out there.

Answer: 
Worms are a nice addition but not necessary. Kitchen scraps, or if you have access to livestock manure are enough. I use my leaves in the Fall, I will bag them up for use throughout the year. Best compost ever.

No...just use scraps like peels from vegetables, lettuce, egg shells, coffee grinds. I even put in some ripped up newspapers and grass clippings.

what size hose bib

This question is from 6.5 cu. ft. Black Compost Wizard EnviroTumbler
Asked by
Read all my Q&A
February 6, 2016
Has anyone actually installed a hose bib on the drain plug of the base? The 1/2" hose bib was too small and the 3/4" hose bib is too big, which indicates its 5/8", but I've never heard of such a product. The other possibility is that since the base threads are plastic and the hose bibs I've tried are brass, it is a 3/4" female thread, but only cut for a plastic male connection.

Answer: 
I don't have one of these (still looking), but from your description, you should be able to "MacGuiver" a fix by explaining your situation to your local hardware/plumbing store. The threads may not be standard to a plumbing hose bib, but you might be able to insert a 1/2" PVC or galvanized pipe, add large washers on each side, add connectors, then add your brass or PVC valve. Good luck!

I want to add a spigot to the composter. It looks like there is a hole there already. Is that correct? Does it need to be drilled out? What kind of spigot should i buy? I can't find anything called a "composter spigot".

You are correct. You need to buy the spigot, but there is a place for it. I will probably add on in the spring.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very happy with this No assemble at all. Because I wanted to walk out my back door and dump kitchen waste, I didn’t need one without a bottom. I made a small platform on my small deck and this worked out real well. I no longer need to walk through the snow and cold in the winter. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Time Saver! My wife has a green thumb. This composter has saved me many trips to buy potting soil when a new planting project comes up. Its a great device and easy to use. Im thinking of buying another. I highly recommend it. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and works great We enjoy not having to shovel the scrapings to rotate it. Now all we do is spin the bin on top of the wheels. This replaced our compost bin that we had for over a year which did not produce much soil for us because we did not rotate the scrapings much. We can tell that this tumbler is working because we can feel the heat inside and see a good amount of soil. December 21, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to set up and capacity is much bigger than expected I just set up my Compost Wizard and it was super easy. It took 2 minutes. You put the base down and then the barrel on top. Very simple. To make it easier for me to access, I put the unit on top of 2ft tall flower pot. It doesn't take up much as much space as I anticipated. (It looks huge in the picture.) This composter is a replacement for the Fiscars Ecobin Composter I originally purchased. The Ecobin is made of mesh fabric, which made it easy for rodents to bite through. Size-wise, the EnviroTumbler is smaller than the Ecobin. I was concerned it wouldn't have enough capacity for my composting needs. However, I've been able to fill it up with almost everything from my Ecobin. I'm quite happy with the product so far. I'm hoping another perk is that there won't be much smell from it since the contents are contained in the barrel, unlike the Ecobin. Time will tell how well it actually composts... December 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good, Functional composted This composting tumbler arrived on time and was simple to assemble. I can't say it is very attractive but that doesn't matter to me much. I've been using it for about 4 weeks now. It is easy to open and add compost material but the lid is a little fussy when trying to thread it back on. It contains decomposition smells well and doesn't attract vermin or insects. My only complaint is the composting material clumps together at the bottom and makes it difficult to turn the drum round. If I don't turn it every day it solidifies some and makes this problem worse. Some baffles inside would help to break up the composting material more and reduce this problem. Because it can be difficult to turn it skips off the wheel track and I have to muscle it back into place. July 19, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by horrible looking the item came in poor packaging. it's obvious that this was returned by another customer. very ugly, dusty and not what you see in the picture on line. I'm returning this tomorrow, i don't have the interest to even use this, since i'm very sure that this will not function as well as I expected. Hoping that Home Depot will not give me problem. December 18, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solved the problem The 6.5 CU. FT. BLACK COMPOST WIZARD ENVIROTUMBLER came assembled, and I used it straight out of the box. There had been a recent appearance at my open compost heap, and this seems to have resolved the issue. September 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Composter The purchase was easy and quick. The item was delivered within the given time frame. For the price, this was an excellent purchase. Would highly recommend this item for someone who wanted to do small scale composting. September 30, 2014
