Some compost toilets have a front compartment where urine goes, separate from the feces composting bucket. This keeps the compost from stinking [along with good cover material and good venting].
Does BTS 33 composting toilet have a separator to remove urine to a separate disposal tank?

I have a small cabin and bathroom on rocky ground and can't dig down. We could lay a drainage pipe but not much more.

Answer: 
The entire toilet sits directly on the floor. There is no waste collection bin other than what is inside the toilet itself. The only time you would need to put this on a platform would be if your floor was concrete. Then you you would construct a small raised platform out of 2 x 2 or 2 x 4 material, with some insulation between the top of the platform and the concrete. This would be to help keep the cold Read More

The use of human waste compost is regulated by state and local health laws. These laws can vary widely from state to state, but as a general rule, most do not permit the use of this material on fruits or vegetables grown for human consumption. Some states prohibit it's use entirely, while some will allow it's use only after it has first been composted further, in the ground for periods of around two Read More

Around the world, tens of thousands of composting toilets are installed in cold climates such as the Scandinavian countries, Canada, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Alaska, Maine and many other cold areas.

Around the world, tens of thousands of composting toilets are installed in cold climates such as the Scandinavian countries, Canada, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Alaska, Maine and many other cold areas. Since there is no water in these toilets, there is no danger of cracking due to freezing. Many are in "off the grid" installations such as you describe. The caveat is that the bacteria that perform the composting need to be warm in order for them to "get to work". That threshold is 64 degrees F. and above. The toilet must be installed in an area that will get to that ambient temperature for at least as long as you are there. When you leave the cabin and turn off the heat, the bacteria will go dormant until the temperature rises again to 64 degrees. Composting toilet owners in cold climates understand this limitation and plan accordingly. Read Less

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HOME DEPOT-Bad Robots! I advocate for using composting toilets of good design. I really like DIY stores. We spend a LOT of time in HD stores! [and LOTS of money, because _lots_ of projects!] Home Depot appears to have posted videos irrelevant to help anyone learn about composting toilets. The Home Depot "helpful" videos posted on EVERY SINGLE composter they carry, is all about REGULAR toilets, not composting units. Also, they fail to show the insides of the composting toilets...anyone interested REALLY needs to go to the website for those models, to learn more about how they work. Some work better than others; some are not on all State's "approved" lists. Needs more actual details of the composting toilets, or at least a website link for interested shoppers. We've used composting toilets of several types/designs. It's tough to find small size units that work well; certain things make them work better, like: separate the urine out; good venting. Those kinds of features are important to show customers. August 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by this product fits the bill in price and performance Having no parts that may brake in the use of the composting saves breakage that other composters have. It is easy to use, clean lines, easy to install and costs less than other units that I researched. The customer service has been good and having free shipping to our door saved us more money. So far have had no problems with it. March 19, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by everyone should have one but has flaws First off, this product saves water! However it does have one little flaw that can become a headache. The way the drain is set up it holds a small amount of urine. If your drain isn't perfect the urine will back up and flood the bottom of the toilet. I fixed that with some silicone to raise the drain well and build up the drain wall. Also recommend a screen over the top of the vent to keep flies out. Biolet costumer service is good. Much prefer purchasing mulch from home Depot. May 18, 2015
