Urine Separator now available in South Africa

Water Saving ToiletsDry, waterless toilets play a vital role in saving precious water in drought-stricken countries and the Western Cape in South Africa is currently experiencing its worst drought in more than a hundred years. We have just come back from the Cape, where people are urgently looking at ways to reduce their water consumption and are coming up with some innovative solutions.

The good news for South Africa-based customers is that they can now buy our urine separator on-line from this site and receive it within a couple of days, thanks to our new Cape Town distributor. Buy your separator now.

Cape Town, and the whole of the Western Cape, currently has level 6 water restrictions in place, which is just one step away from the end of piped water and the taps literally being dry. There is much discussion about “Day Zero”, the point from which the area’s people face the prospect of queueing at standpipes for daily rations of 25 litres of water.

Cape Town has always been a popular spot for holiday-makers with its beautiful beaches, trendy nightclubs and some of the best restaurants in the country. Residents and holidaymakers alike are now being urgently encouraged to save every last drop of water, and the old adage “If it’s yellow, let it mellow; if it’s brown, flush it down” can now be seen commonplace.

Dry composting toilets require no water at all to work and are simple to use and maintain. We have been designing, making and installing composting toilets for a decade and one of the key factors to successful composting toilets is urine separation. You can see the range of our waterless toilets here, which are also available to buy in South Africa. Contact Us for more details.

With a notoriously unreliable postal service in South Africa, it was previously quite a challenge to assure the delivery of our separator from the UK to the Cape. We are now delighted to be having the separator made by a company in Cape Town and are able to offer delivery within just a few days of purchase.

He are some pictures of a fantastic new composting toilet block that has been constructed by a voluntary organisation called Haiti-kinderhilfe on the Caribbean island of Haiti, providing vital facilities for local primary school children.

Haiti is one of many Atlantic islands to suffer the effects of hurricanes and severe weather patterns, where there has been devastating damage caused to infrastructure, including schools and sanitation systems.

Composting toilets are the ideal solution in areas that do not have mains sewerage or a reliable electricity supply. These composting toilets have been designed for use by primary age children and are fitted with the we-pee urine separator, which allows effective composting of both the liquids and the solids and ensure no smells.

We are launching the latest version of our urine separator for composting toilets, which now includes a lip as standard and an integrated strainer over the funnel end.

The lip at the back of the separator prevents urine spilling into the solids container and the strainer ensures no sawdust blockages in your pipe work. The strainer can be removed independently of the separator for easy cleaning.

we-pee urine separator sighting in Portugal




Some feedback just in of a sighting of a we-pee separator in Portugal (in an “Adubo de compostagem”) …

Here it has been used in a waterless composting toilet on a remote mountainous site in Portugal.

Composting toilets are the ideal sanitation solution for off-grid locations without electricity, running water or sewage systems. Separating the urine from the solids with a urine diverter is the key to producing great useable compost from the system and eliminating smells.

Permaculture projects in Portugal are popular with the great growing climate, and dry toilet systems go hand-in-hand with natural, ecologically conscious principles.
