Wind Protection

The last post on Buzz featured a testimonial and photo from an Envirolet® Low Water Remote System in Nova Scotia.

The customer also sent this photo. Although the composting unit itself is not visible, this photo does demonstrate an awesome installation idea that is always recommended.


In the photo you can see that the 4” Flexible Vent is coming out from below the structure. The composting unit is hidden below. The Vent is exiting through a hole cut in some wood.

Basically, this customer used plywood to protect the composting unit from the wind. Great installation!

Cold winds and temperatures will never aid in the composting process. So, it is always a good idea to add insulation like this or in the form of a Winter Box if you are in a colder climate, especially with a Low Water system.

Thanks again for the photos, Sadie.
