The Separett Privy 501 is essentially the same bowl design as the Privy 500, but with a standard toilet seat and lid, making it look more conventional in appearance.
The Privy 501 is a toilet seat, lid and bowl that separates liquid and solids. It can be used as part of your own self-build urine-separating compost toilet and requires very little space for installation. Comes with dark grey urine separator, white hygienic seat and lid, 2.5 metres of flexible urine hose and box with a cutting template (printed onto the box). Installation is straightforward (see video below) and you’re free to make the surround box as utilitarian or complex and beautiful as you like!
The Separett Privy 501 is perfect for people who want to build their own compost toilet. Keeping the liquids and solids separate makes it much easier to manage the system and keep it odour-free.
Most people use sawdust, wood shavings or similar as a cover material, so once you’ve ‘been’, you can cover your offering with the cover material to suppress the odours. Just provide your own solids container and run the urine to a soak-away pit (or capture it in a container), and you’re up and running with your own compost toilet!
New for 2020! The Privy 501 separating bowl is now made from a grey recyclable plastic (rather than the previous blue model). The seat is still wipe-clean and durable white plastic.
