The popular Separett Villa (replaces the Villa 9010 and Villa 9000) is a waterless toilet that is perfectly suited for usage in urban, rural and off-grid settings, such as gardens, cabins or campsites (or any place that does not have easy access to running water and/or sewerage). It is both easy to install and maintain, with simple instructions that even those with few D.I.Y skills can follow confidently.


Available on back-order


  • Family-size, classicly-styled waterless compost toilet, perfect for homes, gardens, offices, cabins, huts , glamping and remote off-grid applications without sewer connections.
  • Urine-separating bowl design keeps liquids and solids separate for ease of use and maintenance.
  • Automatic concealing screen covers the solids container and shields the user from seeing the contents. The concealing screen opens automatically as the user sits down, and closes as they stand up.
  • Highly efficient ventilation fan consumes just 2 watts and removes all odours for a pleasant user experience.
  • Powered by 12v DC or 230V AC mains electricity with the included adaptor.
  • Works all year round and in all climates.
  • Automatically rotating solids container has a capacity of around 60 ‘solids’ uses.

The 2022 Separett Villa is the replacement name for the Villa 9000 and Villa 9010 (see our blog post) which have been combined into one single product.


The Separett Villa waterless, urine-diverting toilet has a small but powerful (upgraded in 2020) ventilation fan that runs from either a 12-volts DC power source or 230V AC mains using the supplied mains adaptor. The fan only consumes around 2 watts at 12v and runs continuously and quietly to provide simple, 100% odour-free operation with no need for sawdust or wood shaving.

It’s the perfect choice for places where there is limited or no mains water and no mains drainage or sewerage, such as remote or off-grid houses, cabins, caravans, shepherd’s huts, garden rooms, garden offices, glamping sites etc, as the toilet looks very ‘normal’ and is equally at home in a domestic or rustic setting.

The toilet’s design, pioneered over 20 years ago by Separett, separates ‘solids’ from ‘liquids’ using a urine-diverting toilet bowl, and the fan/ventilation system draws foul air from the toilet to eliminate odours efficiently and completely. When the user sits down, a special concealing screen automatically opens, revealing the solids container which is normally hidden from view.

Urine is captured 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 external 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). In most cases, a biodegradable bag lines the solids container, keeping it clean and making the process of emptying/changing very hygienic – the whole emptying procedure takes a matter of a few minutes. In a glamping/camping location, the solids container can be emptied/refreshed on cleaning/changeover day so incoming guests are presented with an empty toilet.

Unlike many other compost toilets, the Villa does not need any sawdust or cover material, making it extremely easy to use and maximising the capacity of the solids container.

The toilet itself is made from a type of high gloss plastic, called polypropylene, similar to shower trays and baths. This material is highly durable, fully recyclable, impact-proof and easy to clean using non-abrasive cleaners, 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 and ensures kids can use the Villa in the correct way.

Classic design, proven performance and a great guarantee

Everything about the Separett Villa has been specially designed and manufactured, with an emphasis on style, odour-free use, and ease of waste handling, with no space wasted with ill-fitting ‘off the shelf’ containers.

The Villa has been in continuous production, largely unaltered, for well over 20 years and has an enviable track record for reliability and performing year-round in all climates.

The Villa comes with a 5-year manufacturer’s guarantee (for domestic installations) and legendary after-sales support from WooWoo!

Separett Villa installation requirements

  • Electrical: The Separett Villa will require either a 12-volt DC supply (such as a leisure battery and solar system) or an adjacent 230v AC mains socket in order to operate the fan. The fan runs continuously to provide 100% odour-free operation.

  • 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 is finished with an insect screen and a cap (included with the installation kit). For ventilation options, see this page.

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

Installation is straightforward (see video below) and can be undertaken by any person competent in DIY. If the installation is being made through a wooden structure, then it will usually take 1-2 hours (plus any soakaway installation time). 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.

A cardboard template, showing exactly where the holes are needed, is included and simplifies the installation by 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 in an ‘off-grid’ setting, 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 >50 watts, coupled with a >50Ah battery should fine for year-round use.

Included accessories:

Most items are included with the Separett Villa to enable a typical installation where you vent through the wall behind the toilet. In addition to the toilet itself, you will also receive: 40cm length of vent pipe (Ø75mm), external vent grid/cover, indoor flashing for vent pipe, 2m semi-flexible hose for urine waste (Ø32mm), connector pipe 90°, vent cowl, two solid waste containers with one lid, power cable/mains adaptor, mounting screws, and a sample consumables pack (2 biodegradable bags to line the solids container, a Bio Drain block and an Absorb pad).

For details of possible ventilation options, please see our blog post: Separett Villa Ventilation Options.

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

  1. Kate Tuck

    It’s really good. The only problem I’ve had with it is cleaning it. It can be tricky because you have to unscrew the base plate to clean where the bucket goes and the toilet seat is also tricky to clean. WooWoo are very helpful and their service and support is great.

  2. George

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

  3. Rubicon Garden Rooms

    The product itself is fine. It’s nicely made but it’s too expensive and hard to sell.

  4. 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.

  5. Samantha

    It’s absolutely brilliant! It’s the best option when living on a boat – much better than cassettes!!! It’s been a godsend – I love it!

  6. David Crowder

    It looks like a proper toilet and it’s well made. It would be helpful if it had a UK plug instead of an adaptor but it’s a good product.

  7. Elizabeth Dowling

    It’s a very good product and it does its job well. We’re delighted with it; it doesn’t smell and it’s easy to clean. Would recommend. Very happy with WooWoo

  8. Michael Smith

    We bought it for a garden room where we couldn’t get plumbing and it’s been a perfect solution!

  9. Pete

    We’re very happy with it. It’s a good design and it’s easy to install with helpful instructions.

  10. Nigel Cole

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

  11. Michael Crawley

    It’s brilliant and it’s very easy to fit! I was very satisfied with the quick delivery.

  12. Stuart

    Very pleased

  13. Hannah Jefferson

    It’s great – we love it!

  14. 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.

  15. Harold

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

  16. Samantha (verified owner)

    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.

  17. Adrift Conversions

    It’s clean, odorless, has good usability and is easy to clean.It has a good fan in comparison to others we’ve bought.

  18. 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.

  19. Allan

    No fuss. Order placed and product delivered quickly.

  20. Garry C. (verified owner)

    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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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

  23. 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!

  24. S D Chesterton

    Very happy with the quality of our Separett toilet. Does not look nearly as bulky as I had thought and looks really good in our log cabin. Very impressed with the ease of installation and the easy to follow instructions.

  25. David B. (verified owner)

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

  26. 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 !

  27. 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)!

  28. 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!

    Good all round experience. No hassle buying. Delivered on time. The fan unit however seems quite noisy.

  36. Mr Scott (verified owner)

    A bit expensive but well worth it … the best waterless toilet available in my opinion

  37. Trevor B. (verified owner)

    I cannot fault the prompt turn around time. The toilet arrived, well packed, very quickly. The reason I gave 4 * is my fault – I’ve not installed it yet! I’m confident it will meet my expectations, though.

  38. Louis Cormack (verified owner)

    Super helpful and really prompt. Great quality product also! Thanks guys!

  39. Tony (verified owner)

    Fantastic finish on the whole toilet and complete service from woo woo waterless toilets. Would certainly recommend them.
