The Earthmaker Aerobic Composter processes kitchen waste twice as fast as traditional bins. Three individual chambers keep compost moving through three stages to speed decomposition. Materials are added in the top chamber, digested in the middle and mature in the bottom. Easy-slide dividers use gravity to move compost between chambers and mix in air to enhance activity. 123-gallon capacity produces 10 gallons of compost per month. Snaps together without tools; 47"H x 30"W. New Zealand.

You write in the feature summary:

"Easy-slide dividers use gravity to move compost between chambers and mix in air to enhance activity. "

Is it gravity alone that operates the system? Do I have to remember to manually slide compartment dividers. Anything in a vertical system would naturally use gravity. Yet does gravity trigger by itself transition from one chamber to the next? Your description makes it sound so. Do I have to remember to keep sliding? If so how do I tell if it is time to slide? Mere fullness of an upper chamber? Characteristics of compost? Then would have to keep checking it on a regular basis to tell when it's time to slide dividers. I'm urban, I want to compost. But a) life is busy, & b)I'm in the senior Brain Stage of life so "oh dear, just one more thing to remember..." takes on a whole new meaning. <smile>

Also do I have to stir upper chamber? We're seniors with old joints.

Answer: 
You do have to pull the screens manually once a month to get the compost to move from chamber to chamber.
