Separett FAQs - Composting/Urine Diverting Toilets

How long can the urine hose that connects to the Ejector tank be?

The maximum length of the urine hose is 20 meters and it should have a slope of at least 1 cm per meter to ensure that the tank is self-evident.

Is a longer urine hose available?

No. The urine hose only comes in 2m. If you need a longer hose you can use connector pipes, 10230-02 and 10229-02 but always make sure that there is a steady flow, 1cm/meter, of the urine through the hose. Otherwise the urine may lie still and form plugs.

Are all waste bags from Separett compostable?

No, not all waste bags from us are compostable. Only the green waste bags are compostable.

What has to be done before winter storage of Pee 1000 (with power and water flushing)?

When the toilet is not used during winter the entire system must be drained from water. Otherwise the magnet valve will freeze and break. Disconnect the water. Push the flush button until there is no more water. Then hold down the flush button and blow compressed air into the magnet valve to be sure that the system is completely emptied from water.

Can you use Pee during winter?

Yes you can. But to avoid ice plugs during winter use, isolate the urinary drainage hose and/or increase the pipe diameter to Ø50-75mm. Complete with heating loop. If you want, it’s good to keep the ice away with a splash of T-red.

What if the valve in Pee 1000 has frozen?

If the valve has frozen you can order a new one.
