greetings. i am experiencing a great deal of condensation with my bucket system. in an attempt to keep all the scent of my deposits within the toilet/bucket, i sealed the edge of the back rest (the part that meets the seat) with a kind of flexible foam with a sticky surface on one side. it has done the job of keeping possible smells for excaping but it also traps the moisture in the bucket. nothing nastier than sitting down on a moist toilet seat. for me anyway. plus the moisture drips down the back rest and gets all over the cabinet i built to contain the whole thing. the question is, did i seal this too well or am i not putting enough cover material to soak up the urine? or perhaps there is another answer i don't know about that you experienced ones can help me with? thanks a bunch.

You don't need a seal around the toilet seat. Just cover the contents with adequate *rotted* sawdust (not kiln dried sawdust). You will have no odor.
