Hello, Thank you for your question. All Centrex 3000 electric units feature a 370 watt 120 volt thermostatically controlled heater in a sealed compartment beneath the unit coupled with the standard Sun-Mar 30 watt turbo fan and 2" vent stack. This heater assists in evaporation of liquids, reducing the amount of effluent from the unit. The fan also removes any fresh odors from the unit, ensuring odor-free operation. All Centrex 3000 series units are supplied with a 1" drain hose which should be connected to the 1" drain at the bottom left of the unit. In addition to this, all units will come with approximately 10 feet worth of 2" PVC Pipe, couplings and elbows for venting, a diffuser cap for the top end of the vent, a hardware kit, starting materials and of course the warranty card and owner's manual. Please do not hesitate to contact Sun-Mar should you have any additional questions: Toll Free at 1-888-341-0782 Ext. 232. Thank you.
Hello Adam, Thank you for your question. Emptying or taking out finished compost from a Centrex 3000 is very simple - in fact, the Centrex 3000 is the only system where you do not need to use the finishing drawer to take out finished compost (or dirt, soil, fertilizer etc.). Instead, unique to this particular system, finished compost will automatically drop into the collection chamber at the end of the unit. Due to it's extra-high capacity, the Centrex 3000 central composting system incorporates the autoflow design which allows material to move along from one end of the bio-drum to the very far end of it. In doing so, the material is converted into fertilizer (finished compost or dirt) before it reaches the collection chamber. Thus, one would simply just remove the top of the chamber (easy lifts off) and gauge whether there is enough material in there to use (on grass, trees, flowers and plants etc.) or not enough and would prefer to accumulate more instead. For residential applications, where it will be used everyday, typically you would check/empty the collection chamber once every three-four months. For weekend/vacation and seasonal applications, typically you would empty the collection chamber once-twice a year.

has anyone answered your question. I am interested if this actually works.
Unfortunately no, you would want to use an ultra low flush, 1 pint flush toilet.
