Bio Toilet unit - 2018

Our Current toilet model is Bio toilet. After several trial and errors, we felt this is the most eco-nomical and best solution for open defecation. Once it is built, it needs only once a year inspec-tion.

We have two models :

  • First one is brick and motor non portable model suitable for permanent residents of Rural areas with low cost bio digesters.
  • Second one is portable prefabricated ferro cement slab toilet unit with low cost bio digester suitable for both Urban and Rural areas.

Basic features:

  • Bio toilets saves groundwater contamination.
  • We need only 1.5 litre to 2 litres of water for flushing the excreta in bio toilets.
  • The water which comes out from the pit through pipe, is safe for watering plants as well.
  • Ferro Cement slabs are strong, versatile, low-cost, long-lasting building material made from a wire reinforced mixture of sand, water, and cement.

Bio toilet has two parts

Pit/Digester: The dimension of the Pit/Digester - 5.5 feet height, width 4.5feet and 4 feet depth. The prefabricated (readymade) ferro Cement slabs are available in different sizes.

Toilet: The dimension of the toilet - 6 feet height and 3*3 feet width
