Yes, but I am rather surprised how fast waste water fills the collection tray even when using Sunmar's low flush toilet. We usually use the cottage on weekends, a family of 4, with 3 girls as the primary users, male pees outside When we leave, the collection tray is approximately 3/4 full of water sometimes near the top. On a few rare occasions, I have returned to the cottage within 3 to 4 days and checked the tray by removing the compost collection bin, and the tray was dry. We have also had occasion to have 5 young ladies staying for a week; I had expected the overflow to be required, but the unit managed to stay ahead of that higher use ( I was surprised ). I would give the overall build quality and function of the unit a 5 out of 10 ( I own a manufacturing facility, plastic components, and this unit would never have been allowed to leave my facility due to obvious design flaws ). However, with that said, it's still the best unit on the market for a flush system and should be able to do the job of evaporating the waste water. if not, you have the over flow which in some jurisdictions must be connected to a class 4 cess pool ( Ontario ). A couple of things to watch for: before you use the unit for the first time, mark the drum so you can properly line up the chute after rotating the drum. If your off, even a little; your going to have a big mess ( BIG design error ). When the compost starts to build, after rotation, the drum is usually off balance, and you have to over rotate and swing the drum back quickly to center the weight of the compost ( there should be a locking mechanism that locks the drum in the correct position). I won't get into all the unit's problems, but will give one final piece of advice. Make sure you only use Sunmar's bulking agent ( Blue for flush systems ); any other bulking agent such as peak moss, bark etc. with clog the drain screen. I have a few friends using the unit; they all got a stinking mess when using other bulking agents, the Blue seems to work, and I personally have not had a clogged screen.
