The Separett Villa 9000 is a waterless or ‘dry’, urine-separating, compost toilet that is both attractive and environmentally friendly, manufactured from impact-resistant high-gloss recyclable polypropylene. The integrated 2-speed 230 volt fan (12 volt model is also available – see the Villa 9010), draws air through the toilet to an outside vent, thereby eliminating any odours in the room and speeding up the drying process for the ‘solids’, which will enhance the subsequent composting. The Villa 9000 has a 5 year warranty against manufacturing defects.
In common with all Separett models, the Separett Villa 9000 integrated urine-separating bowl means that solid and liquid wastes are automatically separated. The solid waste will go into the built-in container and liquid waste goes down the urine pipe where you can either run it into a soak-away, or collect for use as a fertiliser.
The solids container would usually need emptying after 6 weeks, assuming a single person was using the Separett Villa 9000 exclusively. A typical family would expect around 3 weeks, depending on use.
One of the unique features of the Separett Villa 9000 is the concealing screen – when you sit down on the toilet, the unique pressure seat opens a view screen that otherwise covers the solid waste container. At the same time, the waste container is rotated slightly to help evenly distribute the contents.
Separett Villa 9000 installation requirements:
- Electrical: The Separett Villa 9000 will require a 230v ‘mains’ outlet (either a plug or a fused, switched outlet) in order to operate the fan. The fan should be run continuously.
- Ventilation: The fan pulls air through the toilet and out through a 75mm vent pipe at the top of the toilet where 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).
- 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 can usually be undertaken by people competent in DIY (the video below gives you an overview of what’s involved). If installation is being made through a wooden structure, then it should 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. If you’re stuck, please remember that we also offer an installation service within the UK.
Most items are included with the Separett Villa 9000 to enable installation. 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, and mounting screws.
For installations where the vent pipe cannot be routed directly through the wall behind the toilet, we can also supply additional vent pipe and 90 degree pipe bends as required.
Please note that the manufacturer may change the specifications, design and supplied accessories as part of continuous product improvement. As of 2017, the Child Seat is no longer included as standard.
