Separett Tiny has no requirements for room temperature and works in both cold and warm spaces. The onlyrequirements are that you must be able to lead the urine away and fit a ventilation pipe.
The toilet is made to be placed on the floor against the wall, and for extra stability it should be attached either to the floor, wall or both.
Make holes according to installation template
The enclosed installation template shows possible installation options for urine drains and ventilation pipes through the wall behind the toilet or through the floor. These options enable an installation without visible pipes.
Install ventilation pipe
The toilet is designed for 50 mm pipes (outer diameter). For optimal function it is recommended that you use Separett’s own installation kit that has pipes and angles in the correct dimensions. Separett Tiny can be installed with up to 5 meters of ventilation piping and 2 90-degree bends. Ventilated air can go through a wall, floor or roof, for example, up into an attic and out through a suitable side of the house. If there is already a ventilation pipe present from a previous toilet installation, the toilet may be connected to
that duct, provided that it is not smaller than 50 mm and that it meets the piping requirements. Should you need longer piping that exceeds the recommendations above, you may install an extra fan (article number 13008) The toilet comes with a coupling for connecting the included 40 cm-long 50 mm pipe to a 1.5 inch pipe (schedule 40).
Install urine hose
The toilet is delivered with a 2-meter (6,6 ft) urine hose. To connect this to the toilet, use the included straight joint or the 90-degree joint. Like the installation of the ventilation pipes, it is possible to connect the urine tube so that no pipe is visible where the toilet is installed. This is achieved by angling the 90-degree connection downwards or using the straight connection, as shown in the pictures below.
Recommendations for installation of urine hose
As with the ventilation duct, Tiny provides the option of installing the urine hose without any visible pipes/tubes in the bathroom. Below are a few tips that should be followed to maintain a well-functioning urine outlet over time and all year round.
- If you are going to go through an insulated wall or a wall with an air gap between the inner and outer wall, you must use a pipe for the penetration, or lead the hose through a pipe. Pipes are used to reduce the risk of pests causing damage to the tube.
- If you are going to run the urine a longer distance than the 2 meters (6,6 ft) of the supplied hose, you should switch to a pipe after the 2 meters (6,6 ft). Since urine contains minerals that can accumulate in pipes/ hoses, we recommend that the subsequent pipe have a diameter of at least 40 mm to avoid blockages.
- Make sure that you always have a downward inclination of at least 2 degrees (2 cm per meter or 0,8 inch per 40 inch) throughout the piping, also make sure that there are no air pockets created by bends in the hose.
- If the toilet is to be used in winter, outdoor pipes must have a diameter of at least 40 mm (1,6”).
- If the toilet is to be used in winter, we recommend that you insulate outdoor pipes with pipe insulation. This insulation can be bought in most DIY stores.
- An important rule for longer installations (over 2 meters (6,6ft)) is that the sooner you switch to pipes with a larger diameter, the lower the risk of blockages in the pipes.
- Do not place pipe joints near electrical appliances or wall sockets. This is to prevent liquid from coming into contact with electricity in the event of a leak
