You're thinking about buying a separation toilet? Great!
you will not only do something good for the environment - you yourself will be thrilled by the advantages of a separation toilet.
In doing so, you're now asking yourself the one question so many people ask themselves before buying a separation toilet: "Which separation toilet suits best?"
The right separation toilet should meet all of your toilet needs.
For this purpose, we present to you our separation toilets in comparison. From the FreeLoo separation toilet kit to the fully assembled FancyLoo.
Separating toilet kit or fully assembled?
The first question that arises before buying a separation toilet is: Do I choose a separation toilet kit or do I save some time and work and buy a ready-assembled toilet?
This question is unnecessary for all those who have two left hands.
Our kits - from the simple FreeLoo to the largest EasyLoo - can be assembled in no time at all.
But you still need to know how to use a hammer and nail. Not to mention the willingness to lend a hand yourself.
With that out of the way, let's move on to the next point.
Where will your separation toilet be used?
A separation toilet in the campervan, garden shed, motorhome, in the storage room or everywhere and nowhere. The places where a separation toilet can be used are limitless.
But that's exactly why it's so important for you to find the right separation toilet for your needs.
If you travel a lot and always want to have your toilet with you, transporting an Easy or FancyLoo is rather difficult.
A mobile camping toilet that can be easily folded and unfolded would be more suitable.
So you understand what is meant by place of use.
Then let's not beat around the bush! Here are the different separation toilet advantages - in a nutshell.

To make sure you end up feeling completely comfortable with your decision, there are a few more details you should consider.
What features does your partition toilet need to have?
"But it stinks!" is probably the most common thing we hear when a man or woman is still unsure about buying a separation toilet.
We have written a separate article on the subject of odors. You should definitely read it if you share this concern.
But here we want to talk about something completely different: The fan.
Did you know from the start that you can detect even the smallest odors and that this is a no-go for you? Then a case ventilation is a must-have for you.
In this case, make it easy for yourself and buy a model with a fan. (Note: Currently we do not offer all our separation toilets with fan).
Both with the separation toilet kit and with the ready-assembled toilet, you will receive an extra housing plate. This already has pre-milled holes for the fan. Or the fan is already installed on your preferred side (left or right in the body).
If you decide to buy a case ventilation after your purchase, that's no problem either. Both fans can be easily retrofitted with the help of our instructions.
But you can also save yourself the effort...
Which brings us to the last point: Two fan variants - with 5 or 12 volts voltage.
Here – again - it is important where your separation toilet will be used. The 12V fan can only be used with a 12V power supply. For a separation toilet in a motorhome for example.
If you can not set up this connection, the choice automatically falls on the 5V fan. You can charge it at any time at any place by means of a USB plug.
All this now summarized again
We have gone through all the options together that you´ll need to think of before buying a separation toilet:
1. What needs does your separation toilet has to meet?
2. Are you handy and up for a DIY project? Based on this, decide whether you want to buy a separation toilet kit or a ready-assembled separation toilet.
3. Where will your portable toilet be used and what are your needs (frequent transportation, additional seating, limited height, design appearance, etc.)?
4. Do you need a separation toilet with case ventilation? If so, can you run the fan from a 12V power supply or USB? On which side of the case should the fan be installed (left or right)?
If you consider these points, you will surely find the answer to the question "Which separation toilet suits me?".
And if you decide to go for our FreeLoo separation toilet kit, feel free to read our article on how to build a separation toilet yourself. There we have summarized even more tips, which can be very helpful for your DIY projects.
