Outhouse treatment

What do you guys use in your outhouses? We used lime, but the man that pumped it the last time told us to quit because its makes the waste solid. Now, the smell is almost unbearable. Is there anything we can use to cut down on the smell?

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

Re: Outhouse treatment

Depending on the deer camp menu, we've been known to treat an outhouse poorly to just plain mean!

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: Outhouse treatment

I use a concentrate in my campers holding tanks, it breaks down the waste and deodorizes. You can find it at just about any Walmart. The only problem, may be the amount you need to use, my black water tank is only 50 gallons.

Re: Outhouse treatment

If the outhouse does not have one than I think you need to install a chimney vent to carry the odors up and outside. yes the stink will waft outside but should eliminate the stink inside. water makes sense to enhance faster breakdown. re-evaluate your diet
