We are also experimenting (with the wonderful people of HELP international) to test composting toilets, which break human matter down to very powerful compost. They are called Soilets. check them out. Incredible stuff.

SquareFoot, it's not too much information, lol! There is another thread about compost that mentions diluting the urine with water 20:1. I will have to check out that site you posted, it sounds interesting!

No need to dilute it.

Debateable... it allows a better area spread if diluted , it does not need to be concentrated to feed bacteria , unless of course you have gallons of it " au naturale " and no where else to put it. Laughing

Any spare undiluted ....it is supposed to deter foxes ,deer etc if you watering can spray it neat where their runs are but it does attract flies .

I went for the "direct application" method...but, yes, quite a private affair.
