    I've got one, as has everyone else in the village.

    Don't really pay too much attention to what goes down it.

    I have it emptied every year to 18 months - costs me about £120 where I live.

    You will get a discounted water bill as there will be no drainage element - means I pay about £12 a month water - with no meter !

    i dont think they smell other than maybe at emptying time.

    afaik they can be used just like a normal toilet cant they, ie no nappies etc down there.

    it certainly wouldnt put me off buying a house.

    i do wonder what the company that empties the tanks does with it all tho, do they just pump it into the normal sewage system the rest of us use lol

    Only of any concern if it comes with a diving board.

    Main concerns from what I've read is that you can't use bleach to clean the loo and so how do you clean it and other household chores. Also what about cleaning up after DIY jobs and the like.
