Where are separation toilets used?

Separating toilets are always used where a conventional toilet cannot be installed, for example when there is no sewer connection available and/or there is no flushing water. This is particularly the case in remote areas where canals or fresh water are not available. For example, in basements, in bunkers, in forest kindergartens, in the garden or hunting lodge.

While simple bucket toilets or plum toilets/thunderbeams were used there in the past, today the separation toilet has established itself as the contemporary standard.

The separation toilet is also increasingly being used for temporary use at festivals, in refugee camps, in disaster areas or on construction sites. There is no sewage system here and the water is too precious to be flushed down the canal.

So far, chemical toilets (Dixies, ToiTois, etc.) have been used for temporary and mobile use. However, chemical toilets only shift the problem of environmentally friendly and safe disposal. In addition, when using chemical toilets, you are heavily dependent on the external emptying service provider.


With a separating toilet you are environmentally friendly, independent and self-sufficient. The only limiting factor of a separation toilet is the capacity of the urine and feces containers. We will go into more detail about this in another article.
