Low cost upgrade, SaTo Vs ???

I'm working with communities on the islands of lake Victoria in Tanzania. I can create a supply of the SaTo pour flush pans which would be appropriate but would depend on the availability of the product. Does anyone have any insight of the preference of SaTo products over a locally created technology such as the concrete sanplat? I do not want to push a product if it is not locally appropriate.

Dear Simon,

I don't quite understand your question? Did you mean to say you can create a demand for SATO pans but want to know if they are available in Tanzania?
Looking on their website, I see Tanzania shown in their list of countries so there are probably other SATO pans already in use there:
www.sato.lixil.com/products
(however, the SATO website is still rather bare, I have to say)

Do we have others on the forum who have used SATO pans in Tanzania or neighboring countries?

Thank you for your reply, sorry for the confusion, I guess I meant demand ( and have linked up with lixil in TZ therefore can create a supply), but the question is really regarding the preference, is there any experience of which would be more desirable when put head to head, i.e. something that can be locally made and replicated, versus a plastic (!!!) product that needs a supply chain?
