There is a blue button to the bottom right of the Hotbin, or more correctly perhaps a cap that one removed lets flow leachate. Leachate is an interesting and most beneficial bonus to the Hotbin design. It is the liquid that is produced by the process. And not just any liquid, it is in fact a liquid fertiliser that is diluted 1:10 in water ( I try to use harvested rainwater ) to give plants a definite boost. This morning I used the liquid to boost the beautiful roses, marrows and Mock Orange in the Home Garden
