When composting, simply add your waste through the large lid and give it several good turns. The composter sits on four spinning wheels, which are mounted on top of the rain barrel. It is easy to spin the composter by hand, even when it's full.

As the compost tumbler rotates, excess liquid from the compost flows into the base where it is channeled into the barrel. From there it mixes directly with the rainwater, and turns into nutrient-rich liquid fertilizer for your garden.

There is a screened opening at the rear of the unit where water from your downspout can flow into the rain barrel. The screen keeps out debris and mosquitoes.

  • From JSS at 8/22/10 5:34 PM
    • Will this material stand up to hard winter weather (less than freezing quite often, sometimes less than 0 degrees.)
    • Yes, the Compost Wizard Hybrid Composter will withstand freezing. The reservoir should not be full to the top in a hard freeze, to allow some room for expansion. The plastic material has some flex to it which makes it durable in all weather conditions.
      We keep our compost tumbler in the shade of our cherry tree - any plastic material will last even longer if direct sunlight exposure is minimized.

  • From JP at 3/21/11 9:49 AM
    • Is there any way to remove the water other than the spout? If you wanted to use a bucket, it looks like you would have to have the whole unit raised significantly.
    • You can attach a hose to the spigot and pour from the hose into a bucket, assuming there is enough liquid in the rain barrel to supply pressure.

      Another option, recommended, is to set the unit on pavers or blocks to give you a few more inches for decanting the liquid into a container, or to increase pressure to an attached hose.

  • From Becky at 8/26/13 1:32 AM
    • How much "aroma" escapes the bin, since I would like to position this close to my rear door / patio?
    • If you maintain a relatively balanced compost by adding carbon materials as well as nitrogen-rich kitchen scraps, there will be no odor from your composter. The sealed compost tumblers, such as the Compost Wizard, are designed to process compost efficiently and with no unpleasant aroma.

  • From Lori at 9/9/13 2:21 PM
    • I understand that properly maintained compost won't smell, but I'm worried about the "tea" mixed into the rainwater underneath. can you comment on that?

    • The tea collector is a great feature since it ready to use liquid fertilizer. You should not experience any foul smells from this process. If you do smell odors, it could because you compost is out of balance, and probably needing carbon elements like dried leaves, straw, sawdust or other source of carbon. A good quick fix for odors is to put in some wood ash if available.
