The Urine Separator Compact — small size for big impact
The basic principle of the dry toilet is in the separation of solids and liquids, at the source. It’s the bowl (also called the insert) that enables a separate collection and thus is actually the heart of this system.
The separate collection leaves it up to you to decide whether you want to effortlessly dispose of the waste or process/ compost it. Water is out of the equation here, thus contributing to saving this valuable resource.
The urine separator compact is the smallest version of the Kildwick diverter range.
Unlike the diverter Klassik and XL, this model provides only the opening for liquid separation. Solids end up in a collection container or directly in the compost pit without any border or rim.
Why it’s special
Number one or number two — the urine separator is built to correctly divide. And yes, it works equally well for men and women.
What sets this urine separator compact apart from other diverters for dry toilets? Well, a lot:
Exciting minimalism for your DIY dry toilet:
- Install as is, just connect to your urine collection system.
- Designed for solids to end up directly in a container or in the compost pit, there is no rim.
- Robust material with a consistent thickness. Check out the crash test.
- Install it on a panel/ board of your choice from the top or from the bottom.
- The sawing template (included in delivery) allows for precision cutting.
- Can be fastened by screws using a sharp drill and low rotation.
- Can be glued using an adhesive for design floors (available in hardware stores).
- Once installed, works with any standard toilet seat.
- The smooth surface on both sides gives germs no chance.
- Its raised profile prefents spillage/ overflowing.
- Effortless to clean due to its highly smooth surfaces.
- Disposing of the high-quality separator insert made of recyclable polystyrene (at the end of its life cycle) produces no hazardous waste, by contrast to its fiberglass equivalents.

Get your toilet construction ready for use with our bamboo toilet seat.
The Stainless Steel Siphon or the Spillguard Kit — fitted between the diverter and the urine container — provides leak and odor protection for bumpy roads.
To prevent odors from developing in the first place, use an adequate amount of cover material after each use.
Should you still notice unpleasant odors, retrofit your composting toilet with our 5V or 12V fan set. The former may even be charged via the solar panel.

Cleaning and care instructions
To ensure the longevity of the insert, never use aggressive cleaners that contain acids or solvents. These can corrode and damage the urine separator’s surface.
Instead, we encourage using our Beetroot Cleaner and our Compostable Sponge Cloth. Both are eco-alternatives to conventional cleaning products.
