The Separett CINDI Basic is an all-electric incinerating, waterless toilet that produces only ash as a by-product. The electronics monitor all aspects of the toilet to ensure complete safety and correct incinerating/evaporating cycles to deal with the daily use for up to six people. The built-in catalytic convertor ensures odours are removed before being vented through the 110mm vent system (not included) where steam etc will gently and odourlessly disperse.
Cindi® Basic burns solid waste to ashes at around 550 degrees Celsius (1200 Fahrenheit). Like an oven, it uses a heating element to heat up the chamber. All moisture and liquids evaporate and all solid waste, together with the paper bag, is incinerated to ashes. The time needed to reach 550 degrees depends on the amount of waste and liquids present in the chamber during the process.
Due to the nature of the heating element and other factors, Cindi is not suitable for installation in moving vehicles (RV’s & motor homes etc) that might be subject to excessive vibrations and movement.
Paying a Visit!
To use the toilet, open the seat and place one of the bags inside (the bag protects the stainless steel bowl from the faeces and limits the need for cleaning). Use the toilet in the normal way, then press the long ‘flush’ lever which will drop the bag and contents into the lower incineration chamber. Then just press the button and leave.
Even if the toilet is already in an ongoing incineration process, it’s important to both flush and to start the program by pushing the button.
When no incineration programme is running, and the toilet is in standby mode, the fan constantly operates at low speed. The purpose of this is to let moisture ventilate out of the toilet and to prevent cold air from getting into the toilet through the pipe.
Emptying your incinerating toilet & routine maintenance
The display on the CINDI Basic will indicate when it’s time to empty the ash pan (it’s usually after around 50 uses). After around 100 uses, you will be requested to clean the ash pan – just empty the ash pan as usual, then add 1 litre of water, replace and press the button to start the program – the water vapour will clean the catalyst and the furnace.
The following is included with the toilet: Long bend Ø110 mm 90°, cleaning brush, dimensional drawing, 100 in no. bags, windcowl, chisel, O-ring and extra fuses.

Servicing & Maintenance
In addition to normal cleaning with a damp cloth the display notifies when it is time to clean the ash pan – the cleaning operation also means that the catalyst and the furnace are cleaned by water vapour formed. When the ash is emptied, around 1 litre of water is poured into the toilet and the program is started. It also tells when the smoke pipe needs to be swept, this is done by using a steel brush that comes with the toilet, and a vacuum cleaner.
For your incinerating toilet to function optimally, it will need occasional servicing. If the toilet is used in a permanent home (and used as the main toilet), it is recommended to servicing the toilet once every year and for holiday homes every two to three years. During the service, the toilet is inspected and cleaned thoroughly. Worn parts are replaced as needed, and your toilet will be as good as new. Servicing costs and replacement parts (replaced due to wear and tear) are not covered by the warranty.
Delivery Information concerning your Separett Cindi toilet
Your Cindi incinerating toilet will be delivered on a pallet and has a total weight of around 40kg. Most deliveries will be made by a specialist haulier who will deliver ‘kerbside’ (i.e. they can offload the pallet from the truck onto the pavement near your property). We cannot guarantee that the truck is equipped with a pallet lift and if it is, the path to your property must be smooth concrete or tarmac for it to be safe to use. Please ensure that you have sufficient people on hand to move the Cindi into your property – usually, two people can move the box once it’s off the pallet.
Pallet delivery to mainland UK (excluding certain Scottish Highland & Island destinations) is FREE OF CHARGE, however, if your area falls outside of the free delivery area, we will contact you to discuss any additional delivery charges.
