How does a Separett waterless compost toilet actually work?

Table of Contents

Getting your head around the idea that you can have a toilet that a) doesn’t need water, b) doesn’t need a sewerage connection, c) doesn’t smell, and d) can create nutritious compost, can be difficult! It seems to defy logic and yet it’s all possible.

Once you understand the basics, there’s that ‘ah-ha’ moment when it all becomes clear. To help you understand how a Separett urine-diverting toilet works, check out our short video animation which should hopefully make it all clear!

You’ll find more information on the Separett Villa in our online shop.

Details on the Separett Ejektortank are here.
