Separett Villa 9010

SKU SEP1067-03 Categories , , Tag


The popular Separett 9010 is a compost toilet that is perfectly suited for usage in rural and off-grid settings, such as cabins or campsites (or any place that does not have easy access to running water). It is both easy to install and maintain, with simple instructions that even those with few D.I.Y skills can follow confidently. The toilet’s fan mechanism requires just a 12-volt power source (around 2.5 watts), which makes it even more environmentally friendly and cost-efficient and can be run from a solar panel and battery.

  • 5 YEAR WARRANTY (3 years on fan)

  • 12V DC or 240V AC – Ideal for off-grid



The Separett Villa 9010 waterless compost toilet is all but identical to that of the Villa 9000, the only difference being that the fan is single speed and runs from 12-volts DC power (or 230V AC using the supplied adaptor). The main advantage is that it’s ideal for “off-grid” usage, such as cabins, caravans, shepherd’s huts etc, as the toilet requires around 2.5 watts of power at 12 volts DC. An adaptor for mains electrical use, should it be available, is supplied.

The toilet’s ingenious design separates solid waste from liquid, with the fan helping to dry the former quickly to eliminate odours efficiently. When weight is put on the toilet seat, the special concealing screen opens, revealing the solids container which is normally hidden from view. Urine is collected in the front part of the urine diverting bowl and it then flows, with gravity. out of the rear of the toilet and into either a small soak-way pit or a container for subsequent emptying (container not supplied). The solids container should only need emptying every 3 to 4 weeks, depending on usage (3-4 weeks is typical for two people using this toilet full time).

The toilet itself is made from a type of high gloss plastic, called polypropylene, which looks almost identical to the standard porcelain toilet you would find in any home. This material is highly durable, fully recyclable, impact proof and easy to clean, maximising hygiene.

For those with small children, or those likely to have small children use it, there is an optional child seat that is easy to attach and reattach as needed.

Installation requirements

  • Electrical: The Separett Villa 9010 will require a 12 volt DC supply (such as a leisure battery) in order to operate the fan. The fan is run continuously whilst there is anything in the solids container. You will need to ensure you have the ability to recharge (from solar, wind or other means) or swap the battery to enable continual use.

  • Ventilation: The fan pulls air through the toilet and out through a 75mm vent pipe at the top of the toilet. From here it can either be turned through 90 degrees and go directly outside through the wall (recommended), or straight up and through the roof/ceiling. The outside part of the duct will require an insect screen and a cap (included with the installation kit).

  • Liquid Outlet: The 32mm urine outlet is on the rear of the unit and can be led to a domestic wastewater pipe, a soak-away or a holding tank. Please ensure you comply with any local codes regarding the disposal etc of urine.

Installation is straightforward (see video below) and can be undertaken by people competent in DIY. If installation is being made through a wooden structure, then it will usually take 2-3 hours. Installing the vent pipe through brickwork or other solid structure will involve more ‘building’ type work and may require a tradesperson to assist with certain aspects.

Includes a cardboard template, showing exactly where the holes are needed is included and simplifies the installation, removing any guesswork about pipe positions.

Solar & Battery recommendations

If you are looking for a solar panel and battery to supply power for the Villa 9010, we can only make general recommendations as the specifics of your site and other local conditions will affect how much electricity a solar panel is able to generate. Assuming a site in the UK, and that your intended location doesn’t have any significant shading or shadows during the day, and with the solar panel angled due south, we generally suggest a panel of around 60 watts, coupled with an 80Ah battery is fine for year-round use.

Included accessories:

Most items are included with the Separett Villa 9010 to enable a typical installation where you vent through the wall behind the toilet. In addition to the toilet itself, you will also receive: vent pipe 40cm (Ø75mm), vent grid, indoor flashing for vent pipe, 2m hose for urine waste (Ø32mm), connector pipe 90°, vent cowl, 3 solid waste containers and 2 lids, power cables, silicone sealant compound, mounting screws, and a pack of 10 biodegradable bags (to line the solids container).

The Villa 9010 comes with a 230v to 12 v adaptor to enable you to connect this toilet to the mains where/when it’s available.

For installations where the vent pipe cannot be routed directly through the wall behind the toilet, we can also supply additional vent pipe 75mm diameter vent pipe and 90 degree pipe bends as required. Separett recommend a maximum pipe run of 4m and no more than 2 x 90 degree bends with the Villa 9010.

Please note that the manufacturer may change the specifications, design and supplied accessories as part of continuous product improvement.

  1. George

    We use it every day and it’s well made, usable and overall very good.

  2. Karen

    It’s a really good product and I’m pleased with it. It’s very easy to empty. Great for a hut/cabin but it might cause problems in a glamping situation if people are careless when using it. The children’s seat is necessary for kids.

  3. Nigel Cole

    The instructions weren’t very helpful but other than that it’s looking good.

  4. Stuart

    Very pleased

  5. Hannah Jefferson

    It’s great – we love it!

  6. Richard Piper

    I had some troubles with the ventilation because I had to put it through the roof and not the wall, as recommended. But other than that I can’t fault it.

  7. Harold

    Best thing since sliced bread! I love it, it’s absolutely brilliant.

    Tricky to find a longer flue pipe locally.

    • Martin Doyle (store manager)

      Hi Samantha. Thanks for leaving your review – we appreciate you taking the time. Regarding the flue/vent pipes for the Separett Villa – they are a specific size (75mm) and not commonly available, but we do hold stock of them in our warehouse. There are also other options, such as adapting to more common pipe sizes – feel free to call or email us for help.

  9. GlamStreams Luxury Airstream Rental

    It’s very easy to use and works well. Emptying and cleaning are so simple with the bags. The design is good and it’s less messy than the toilets from Nature’s Head, which we also have experience of. The customer service is brilliant and the staff are very accessible to inquiries and thoughts.

    Speedy delivery. Easy installation for me ( Handyman ) I’m using the off grid fan until I’m hooked up to mains electricity. Would highly recommend for an eco friendly set-up.
    Overall, pleased with the price and the product.

  11. Fergus (verified owner)

    Unfortunately, the product arrived broken. Damaged during delivery. Woowoo team dispatched a replacement part immediately. Toilet looks great but we are yet to use it, can’t fit it yet due to building works progressing. Fast delivery, problems sorted, excellent service so far.

  12. Kathryn Matheson (verified owner)

    So quick and easy to install we just had to buy a step up coupling to connect as previous toilet pipe was smaller very happy

  13. Bruce (verified owner)

    I bought this as I have an Air head in my van which is excellent, but needed something a bit more domestic for a cabin. The seat is raised in order to operate the solids cover which just makes me think flies!
    The solids cover does not make a good seal, and every time you sit on it the solids cover opens even if you only want a wee, the air head system is much better with the seat and lid being sealed and the solids cover being operated with it’s own lever.

    • Martin Doyle (store manager)

      Thanks for your review. There are some fundamental differences between the Air Head and the Separett – both work extremely well (in different ways) and neither should be attractive for flies! The Villa has a more efficient/powerful ventilation system than the Air Head which means no cover medium (coir etc) is needed and the automatic concealing screen is just there as an aesthetic cover – it’s not designed to form a seal – flies will only be attracted to smells, and with no smells (because of the ventilation system), there are no flies! Many people prefer the Separett because of the automatic screen, regular-sized toilet bowl and simpler operation (no levers, no mixing of contents and greater overall capacity), but ultimately it’s a personal choice guided by the fact that the Air Head is more suited to mobile installations (vans, boats etc) and the Villa for land-based installations. The Villa has been around for 20 years and has sold over 100,000 units so is well proven. We do encourage people to call us before making a purchase and we’d have been very happy to explain the differences to you.
      Hopefully, once you’ve got more experience of the Villa, you’ll feel a bit more positive about it!

    Easy to use website, ordered at 9.30pm Monday received 10.30 am Wednesday

  15. Carole Barker (verified owner)

    I love my toilet, it was easy to install, looks cool, doesn’t smell. Moving up from a portapotti that needed empying every three days, I’m so happy that this one will not need emptying for a long time, and the contents will eventually be used on my allotment. I feel like a queen when I am sat on my throne !

  16. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Delivered promptly and works as expected. Very efficient service and as this is our first ever composting loo, it has been pleasantly easy to adjust to. Easy installation, easy to use and no smells (as long as the fan is on)!

  17. Tracey (verified owner)

    Bought for a small glamping site, I was worried guests may mis use it , but I have put plenty of instructions in the toilet hut and it’s worked really well so far; I am impressed and no smell at all, will buy another for 2022 season, looks modern and like a normal loo!
