Batch Composting AND Rainwater Collection and Storage with the Mizer
Composter and Rain Water Collector Combo
The Compost Tumbler:
Mizer Composter and Rain Water Collector includes a compost tumbler
much like the Rotator
Compost Tumbler. The Mizer Composter and Rain Water Collector
takes the backbreaking effort out of
turning your compost. You won't need to struggle with forks or shovels,
trying to tear apart a packed, root bound, brick of material.
The large capacity compost drum rotates on a stable base providing
quick and easy mixing. Just turn it about once a week to keep oxygen,
nutrients, microorganisms and moisture evenly distributed throughout
the developing batch. The Rotator Compost Tumbler arrives fully
assembled so you won't spend frustrating hours putting it together, and
it's low-to-the-ground profile means you won't need to lift materials
high in the air to fill it. With this simple design, you can begin
turning your garden and kitchen waste into valuable organic soil in
Rain Water Collector:
The Mizer Composter and Rain Water Collector includes a rain water
barrel collection system integrated into the base of the compost
tumbler. The innovative design cuts down on the cost of buying separate
units and it also saves space by reducing your footprint. But
even more significant is the way the whole unit works together to fuse
earth and water. As the top barrel is rotated, gravity and centrifugal
forces squeeze out excess liquid from the compost which flows out onto
the base where it's channeled into the barrel. From there it
mixes directly with the rain water collected from your gutters forming
nutrient packed plant food.
Water is a precious resource we cannot let go to waste. Rain
the amount of water draining into sewer treatment facilities, while
lowering the impact of roof top runoff. Collecting and storing
rainwater provides a backup source of outdoor water use during
drought or between rain showers. It helps to keep creeks, lakes and
beaches clean by reducing the amount of chemicals washed into bodies of
water from urban runoff. Rainwater is also naturally chlorine-free.
Using chlorine-free rainwater for your lawn and garden helps maintain a
thriving biotic community in your soil.

Composter and Rain Water
Favorable composting conditions can turn garden, yard and household
waste into nutritious plant fertilizer in just a few weeks, and a well
mixed compost batch enhances the interaction of ingredients and
microbes to speed nature's process. Turning your compost increases air
circulation and distributes material and moisture evenly - two
important parts of the compost equation.
We’ve created the Mizer Composter and Rain Water
Collector to help
make your composting efforts easier. With stationary composters,
material is added in layers, and “turning” the
compost pile is difficult and often a smelly, messy project. As
ingredients are added, layers pack down and germinating seeds produce
fibrous roots throughout the stack. These roots lock together forming a
brick of matter that’s hard to break apart - even when the
batch is finished. These stagnant layers can keep hot (biologically
active) and cold (biologically inactive) areas from digesting for long
periods of time.
By placing the rotating bin of the Mizer Composter
and Rain Water Collector on
it’s base, you’ll be able to turn your batch
without the backbreaking task of moving material with forks or shovels.
Frequent turning greatly speeds up the composting of materials and also
prevents “germinating roots” from
“webbing” the batch into a solid brick.
are some other basics that can help your
- Use about 1/3 green, and 2/3 brown ingredients. This recipe
will keep a good heat/moisture level for optimum organic reaction.
Moisture of compost should be similar to that of a damp sponge - too
much water cools the batch, and too little reduces micro-biotic action.
You can add water or green materials when too dry - add brown materials
if too wet.
- Grass clippings add heat and moisture, but too many will
make a wet, stinky mess. Add them carefully (you also can let them dry
a day or two before adding).
- Never add animal products such as meat, milk
products, bones or eggs (washed egg shells are the exception).
- Although cattle and horse manure are good additives, never
add pet waste to your compost.
- Add a handful of dirt about once a week to introduce new
microbes that will act as "compost activators"
- Turn your compost. Mixing compost will distribute moisture
and materials evenly, and circulate air within the batch. Do this
whenever you fill the composter, and about once each week.
Your compost batch will shrink as it breaks down, and you can
continue adding materials until the batch becomes too heavy for
turning. Stop adding new material to your composter about 2-4 weeks
before you plan to remove your finished compost batch.
