We proudly present the MiniLoo with 12V fan!
Our challenge was to design a fully functional mini-toilet that´s just right for any interior, no matter how snug. And what can we say? We´re sure you´ll love our baby as much as we do!
Just like the EasyLoo, the body of the MiniLoo is made out of laser-cut birch plywood, guaranteeing a perfect fit. Our ingenious interlocking kit system can support the heaviest of users despite being smaller, compacter and lighter than the EasyLoo. To be precise, trials have confirmed that the seat can withstand a weight of 200kg while the wooden lid holds up to 100kg.
With a height of 43,80 cm (including the lid), the MiniLoo delivers excellent seating comfort. Thanks to its reduced dimensions (it´s 33.70 cm wide and 39.60 cm deep excluding the urine separator), the MiniLoo fits into tiny spaces. Since the rounded part of the separator protrudes 2.0cm, the MiniLoo is completed by a specially designed seat. Made from birch multiplex, the comfortable toilet seat provides the durability and stability required. The surface of the seat has been coated with durable varnish for easy, hygienic cleaning.
In contrast to the EasyLoo, the lid of the MiniLoo is part of the body, the two being connected by stainless steel hinges. The advantage is that the MiniLoo attractively blends into any environment. And with its soft cushion on the top, the MiniLoo can also be used as an additional seat.
Like the EasyLoo, a wide plastic surround forms the base for the actual separator, which can easily be kept very clean. Like all other Kildwick urine separators, it’s made from high quality recyclable polystyrene and is suitable for women, men and children.
What makes Kildwick products so innovative is that they´re thought out down to the smallest detail. For example, instead of screws, nails or hinges, our MiniLoo separator is held onto the body by four super-strong neodymium magnets (but please note our safety instructions!). With the magnets screwed to the body, the stainless steel metal plates screwed to the underside of the MiniLoo separator keep it firmly in position. This pioneering design feature (well, we´d hate to hide our light under a bushel!) allows the canisters to be effortlessly emptied from above.
We realize that many other manufacturers offer models with emptying options on the side, but this is highly impractical. Don´t forget that when a composting toilet is used in a tight space, every centimetre counts! The solution to this problem is top emptying. With the Kildwick MiniLoo, simply pull the separator off the magnets in order to comfortably reach the urine canister and the solids container. This also means both sides of the urine separator can be easily cleaned.
To remove the separator from the magnets without difficulty, a specially developed knob has been fitted. Briefly turning the knob quickly disconnects the separator from the magnets.
Talking about the inner workings of the Kildwick MiniLoo, the urine canister has the usual 9.5-litre capacity - the same as the EasyLoo and, when used by two people, sufficient for about two or three days. The solids container has the same volume (slightly smaller than the EasyLoo), which should be enough for about four to six days for two users.
As usual with Kildwick, the DIY MiniLoo kit comes with everything you need for easy assembly: high-quality wood glue, galvanized nails, and a 2.5mm Allen wrench (hex key). The assembly instructions can be found on our support page - just scan the QR code on the packaging or the envelope. All you need in addition is a hammer while a 10mm spanner would also be useful (but isn´t essential) - and away you go!
Brass sleeves for the lid hinges are pre-fitted (like on the EasyLoo), as are the hinges for the stylish MiniLoo toilet seat. And all the necessary screws are naturally included in the DIY kit.
Of course all holes in the housing are already prepared for the12V fan set. To install the fan you only need an 8mm wrench, a 4mm hex bit and a small screwdriver. Whether you install the fan right or left you decide yourself. The plate with the holes provided you have to install only left or right. So look for it.
At the kit´s heart is a high-performance brand-name 12V fan of excellent quality. Originally designed as a computer cooler, it´s powerful, energy efficient, made for continuous use, and super quiet to boot. (We couldn´t resist the computing pun, but you seriously won´t be hearing it.)
This new fan of yours will need a power source - it could be the energy grid in your caravan, motorhome, camper van, or house boat; a child´s play due to its two-pole connector. The cables come with two ferrules so the terminal choice is entirely up to you: WAGO connectors, screw terminals, or something else - it works.
And you know us, here at Kildwick, we always go the extra mile to deliver real plug-and-play products. Thus, in addition to the fan, the kit includes everything you need to get the vent going.
There´s the very robust (and quite shapely) 3 mm V4A stainless steel adapter ring, with its diameter of 50 mm or 2" fit for international use. You can easily add exhaust venting any way you like or need it - simply use a standard vent pipe, and you´re good to go.
What else? The kit includes an inner ventilation grille. Needless to say, it´s also made of 1.5 mm V4A stainless steel (acid- and salt-resistant) padded with sturdy PU foam (5 mm thick). This foam adds an extra layer of protection to the fan cable that's already snugly covered in heavy-duty tape, making it less prone to cable rupture and other mechanical damage. Due to the foam layer, the fastening screws that are included in the kit can be tightened by hand.
Speaking of which: the screw set consists of three screws and three matching cap nuts made of V2A stainless steel - for maximum durability and stability. In case you want to tighten the screws more than just finger tight, you´ll need a PZ3 hex key.
By the way: whatever your use case, whether you want to install the fan right away with your new dry toilet or add it later, whether it´s for your Kildwick EasyLoo or for your DIY dry toilet - we´re happy to provide you with a free installation template.

Want to know how easy it is to assemble your MiniLoo? Then follow this link to the assembly instructions.
The MiniLoo dry separating toilet housing ist made of glued birch plywood. We recommend oiling or varnishing the housing inside and out. Otherwise, the wood ages quickly due to environmental effects. Humidity level changes in winter and summer or damp ground can have possibel negative effects. In order to enjoy your MiniLoo for a long time, we recommend varnishing or oiling it al least one every two earys.
Attention cleaning instructions:
All our dividers are made of recyclable polystyrene. Please do not use aggressive cleaners such as "Chlorix", spirit, power cleaner or acidic, solvent-based cleaners. These can attack the surface of the Kildwick separation insert and can lead to damage (depending on the amount of solvent in the cleaner). We recommend ecological or biological cleaners, such as "beeta" beetroot cleaners Simply spray the divider with it and wipe it out with a tissue, kitchen roll or our recyclable sponge cloth. You can also dispose it of immediately in the solid container.
