Description Technical Specs FAQS
Shipping varies depending on distance from our NC facility and quantity of units (weight).  The cost ranges from $115 to $325 (west coast). We have a $1 placeholder, should you wish to submit an order. We select the best priced LTL freight carriers at the time of the order.  They do require we ship to a commercial address (or Pick Up at the closet terminal).
Prosumer / Homestead ProtaPod Composting System: 4 foot polyethylene (bodies only). These have the bioconversion capacity of 4-5+ of the smaller BioPod Plus units and can accept approx. 20-25+ lbs per day. These updated units do NOT include the old metal stand and problematic drainage kit. If you have a source of food waste, offal or manure, you can quickly offset your purchases of store-bought feed by growing huge quantities of grubs for your chickens or fish. Self-reliance meets sustainability meets recycling meets insect farmer!
These are similar in design to the old GEN I ProtaPods bodies, but with some drainage support enhancements - they are being made available for DIY setups in limited quantities only. These newer units no longer include filters, collection jars, tubes, etc. We can now nest up to 12 pods on a single pallet. Use matala, perforate plates or coir fiber mats with gravel underneath to promote bottom drainage. In order to maintain maximum flexibility with both imperial and metric plumbing fixtures, we no longer pre-drill the bottom drainage hole(s). Each pod weighs 24 lbs. A comprehensive 30+ User's Guide & Operations E-Manual is available at no additional cost.
