Maintaining a Separett®

Separett Tiny Models

Daily cleaning

  • Keep the bowl clean with a simple cleaning spray such as diluted Nature Flush or a watered-down vinegar solution.
  • Don't put non-compostable materials or antibacterial chemicals into the toilet
  • Having a Bio Drain Cleaner block in the urine diversion bowl will help keep the toilet smelling fresh and prevent any blockages in the urine hose (if you have a urine extraction model)

Emptying the toilet

Due to the compact design, the smaller chambers may need to be emptied regularly, depending on usage. With the seat lifted, the urine bottle can be capped and transported for emptying - the Separett logo on the back of the unit will light up red when the bottle is almost full. 

The solids chamber can be accessed by lifting the chamber screen panel. This chamber also has a lid and a carry handle to be safely transported. The yellow rim of the container is a bag clip to hold the compostable bag in place, when inserting a new bag place some material in the bag to absorb any excess liquid - this could be an Absorb Pad or some bulking agent - to prevent the bag from splitting.

Ongoing Maintenance

To keep the system functioning properly, regularly check that the fan is on and there are no blockages in the ventilation system.
