Re: Poop box.
we tried the tablet system, and it was a BIG MESS and it Failed horribly for 2 dog. I dug a 4 foot deep hole and inserted a piece of 12 inch Diameter PVC Pipe, with LOTS of holes drilled in it - you need to keep water in the 'septic tank' in order to work so we kept it watered, but we noticed it needed less and less water each week. well No sherlock ! it needed Less water cause it was FILLING WITH !!!!

I now have a metal galvinzed trashcan that fits a 5 gallon bucket inside) Trashbag, goes in the 5 gallon bucket, bucket goes in the trash can, tight lid on trash can. I pull it out, scoop up the piles every few days, and 1 trashbag vice lots of trashbags. that's the greenest I can do.
Keep us informed how it goes with your system. !
