How to go about hotter climates

Hi there!

I'm considering integrating a vermicomposting flush system into a design for a house in Greece. The summers get very hot and from what I understand the worms can't handle high temperatures. What would you recommend I do? Could I set the IBC tank a few feet into the ground so it's naturally kept cool? Would this have any negative affects?

Thanks in advance:)

Hi Luca

I'm in Portugal. Our summers are not that different to yours. So that's the climate this system was originally constructed in. You need to enclose the worm tank in an insulated structure. All this is on the Design and Construction page. Please read it!
