      Yes, but you need to take care to keep the fan dry. Depending on the toilet, you might put a plastic bag around just the fan housing, or you might have to put a big garbage bag over the entire toilet. The fan and wires need to stay dry.

      Being off grid is not usually a problem. You need a 12 volt deep cycle battery, and either a solar panel or generator to charge that battery. It sounds like you have a generator, so you are all set.

    I currently use Nature’s head, but am unhappy with the height and the limited urine container, (with many women)…

    Is there a composting toilet that can sit over and existing toilet flange and divert the urine to the “grey water” system… ? Or a toilet that could be modified to do so?

    • richardbrunt Post author

      Toilets have gotten steadily higher over the years, and 17-20 inches in now pretty common. The NH is 20″. There is no composting toilet that will fit over an existing toilet flange. You need to build a small box. To drain the urine away, you can drill a hole in the urine bottle and support, and install a bulkhead fitting. then you can attach a hose and drain the urine wherever you like.

    Hi Richard. We’ve had our Separett for 2 + years now as our main toilet and LOVE it, all 4 seasons in the southeast corner of BC, Canada. We’re about to empty the first composting box (from > 1 year ago). There are remnants of the green bag….why? Is it not compostable starch “plastic”? Thanks.

      That’s amazing. Usually the problem is they break down too fast. It just means the compost was too dry. It will quickly vanish, not to worry. And yes, they are made from cornstarch. No plastic in it whatsoever.

    I am planning to build a 2 story small house with a composting toilet on the first floor. I am currently looking more into the Separett. Would I be able to run the ventilation system through an outside wall (within the wall) and up to the roof?

    My family owns a cabin in northern Michigan we only use the cabin between April and September. Generally on the weekends and then about twice a year we have a large gathering (20 or more people). On these occasions would it be best to also have a rented outhouse?
    What model would you recommend? In the Winter would we simply clean empty and turn off the fan?

    • richardbrunt Post author

      20 people is far too many for one toilet. I cannot say if renting an outhouse is a good idea for you. The Villa has large capacity, because you can just empty it as often as you need to. But you don’t want to be doing that constantly. You can empty and turn off the fan, yes.

    How many toilets for a family of 6 would you recommend? And what about vomiting, would that affect the way the compost bin functions on break down? Trying to think of all scenarios that happen in life.

    • richardbrunt Post author

      That is a hard question to answer. Growing up, we were a family of 6, and we shared one toilet without difficulty. However, everyone’s family is different. A little extra liquid is not usually a problem. But people generally do not vomit in a composting toilet. A bag or bucket would be better. Diarrhea is OK, as long as it is not chronic.

    Also, can you let me know of a brand and size composting bag that seems to work best with both toilets? As I research bags that compost, it seems most of them leak as soon as a small amount of liquid enters into them.

    • richardbrunt Post author

      We sell a very strong bag, but it is quite expensive. Many of my customers use any good brand of bio degradable bags with excellent results. You could always double the bag. There should be no liquid to leak out, if the Separett is working properly.
