Monotub trashbag question. And coffee grinds
    #11170994 - 10/02/09 07:06 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

So, after weeks of reading I finally signed up only to find out that many of the things i need to see are blocked for 2 weeks.. great.  Also, I have read soooo much stuff i cant keep it all straight or find the good things again.  Since I *have* to make a few posts to view some threads I'll start with this one.... It's dumb, I feel stupid asking it..

When using a monotub and a trash bag, do you cut the bag to fit the top of the substrate?  I have seen many teks with no bag at all, and a few that ended badly (side pinning).  Some things I read said that the water running back down the sides is a big part of how its "set and forget" keeping things moist.  But if thats so, wouldnt one have to tape the bag to the sides of the tub just above the substrate?

Also, Im not about to go to starbucks and ask for spent coffee, so could i just empty a quart of grounds into a pot and boil, pour off, repeat till the water pours off kinda yellow?  Would that work?

The starbucks near my place has a bucket right inside the door where they place the spent coffee grounds.  Above the bucket it says something about used coffee grounds free for your garden.  Check it towards the end of the day.

It's not that big of a deal to ask for spent coffee grounds from starbucks, I walked a block and they said they would save them for me and have them waiting at the end of the day. No questions asked, they gave me the enormous bag and I left. You can make coffee if you don't want to go, I've done that before too, it took 6 pots worth and a few hours. I'm sticking with starbucks from now on.

And we were galloping manic

we were swallowing panic
in the face of its force.

Nice, I always use the drive through, I'll have to run in and see if they have them by the door. 

Any other thoughts on the water running down the side being blocked by the trash bag?  The set-and-forget is a must as im gone for 5 days a week, every week.  Thats why im looking at the monotub.

I use trash bags for the bottom lining of my tub for 1 reason anymore

easier cleaning when your done!

Unfortunately I still get side pinning with a bag, and at times even worst...bottom pinning.

As for re-absorption of wall condensation in the tub to make it set-it and forget-it capable, dunking for several hours after the first flush will do that for you...

Ive done it with and without a bag with same results...4 dry ounces a tub

That's too much work brudda. All gardeners use used coffee grinds to add to their garden. Starbucks is used to giving them out every day. As a matter of fact, you need to hit them just right or call ahead or somebody ELSE will get them.

One trip will keep you in coffee for awhile though. This was my last haul, drying in the desert sun:
