Have anyone use Separett Villa 9215 Composting Toilet?


Recommended Posts

This seems to be a fairly new to the USA composting(?) toilet but common to Europe. Looks like it was released in the USA fall 2018. I'm hesitant to say it's composting since all it does is dry out the solids but are RV composting toilets truly composting or just hiding the smell. There's no composting material, no stirring mechanism. But it looks easy to clean and it looks like it would be easy to plumb into the black tank. The few reviews that I've seen are favorable.  I'm still researching options for a new trailer.

Interesting.  I haven't heard of that unit, but I can see a few advantages over the Nature's Head.  It looks like it's heavily dependent on ventilation, though, and a 3" vent pipe might be difficult to get to the roof and cap.  I don't think you'd want to vent it out the side due to odor, and in fact you might get a wife or two from a top mounted vent as well.

 

It certainly looks nicer than the Nature's Head, and also looks like you can go longer before emptying.

Yeah, that 3" pipe is pretty big but the fan pushes a lot more air than the Nature Head does. I found this answer from them for not using some kind of composting agent e.g. coconut coir, peat moss, saw dust etc. which sounds reasonable.

 

"The Separett system holds the solid waste, separated from the liquid waste, within a compostable liner bag in the holding area. The fan is drawing air over the material serving to vent any odor and aid in drying the material. No other material is added as that would impede drying. No composting toilet on the market brings the material to a safe state within the toilet, as it take a min of 6 months for human pathogens to become benign aerobically. Therefore our feeling is why add additional material in the toilet and make it a mess to empty - when the material needs additional composting upon removal. So - upon removal from the Villa in the compostable bag, the waste goes to a compost area, approved disposal area (as in an RV park) or in an incinerator for disposal. With composting, the bag goes into the compost area in the tied off bag, the bag will compost down exposing the contents for composting with other kitchen and yard materials. Our system allows options and less volume for the method of disposal over other systems. More info on our company site at SeparettStore dot com. see less

Well, I think the answer to that question is that big fan.

 

If I were considering this for my house, with the vent 15'-20' in the air, I think I'd put this high on the list.  But on a trailer, I suspect that the exhaust is just too close to the ground.  I could be wrong though - it would be interesting to hear from someone who's put it in an RV or trailer.

I did some reading and youtube viewing on the separret today. I doubt that's it's a great alternative to the nature's head in the Oliver (the big vent, particularly), but I  think it could work well in a tiny house on our camping property.

Has anyone here used one in a cabin or tiny home? Or, in an rv?

I would have to agree a great alternative for a cabin tiny home or even a garage,  The 3” pipe would not look very attractive in the small Oliver bathroom. And the redirection of the urine to the grey tank? Sometimes you can get some serious odor from a grey tank vent, add urine to that no thanks.

If its a short one day trip and its the only place to go a small garbage bag lined in the standard toilet works fine. Nasty but works.
