Re: Construction of Toilet (with Innovative Superstructure) at the Local Govt Office for TATA Housing's SWACHH CSR Project, India

Dear Promita,
It is interesting to have to own by a house hold at a remote village. By getting this information, i was browsing this model in your said web, but not found. Is their any technical things involved in this ? Is it approved by Govt of India to install in SBM (Gramin) ? How many hours it will take to install this ? If it will requested for Odisha remote villages, then what will be the mode of operation ? Is it according to the approved design & budget of Govt. of India ? How many you have installed this all over India till now ?

I have sent my Skype request to you for adding me ?

Kindly give your feedback.

Hi..
The manufacturing cost is about 5500 INR and installation about 300 INR. currently the installation is done at the manufacturing unit, however, if the requirement is large, then alternative solution for installation can be worked out.
Yes, the transportation cost can be a little higher side if sent outside India in its current form.

Warm Regards
Promita

We have been manufacturing prefabricated ferrocement components and assemble them in to a full toilet with a septic tank. The first 500 toilets were installed in 1994 and are still functioning well. These are low water (1.5-2 liter) using toilets. We are attaching two photographs showing the toilet super structure and the septic tank.The life of these can easily be fifty years.Ferrocement is a green technology with carbon foot print reduced by about 50% as compared to conventional brick masonry construction.No chances of ground water contamination.

Re: Construction of Toilet (with Innovative Superstructure) at the Local Govt Office for TATA Housing's SWACHH CSR Project, India

This is a two leach pit model . Evidently it has many drawbacks

1. The pathogens are going into the ground water (30-50%)

2. When the pit is full -it is left todry and digging the pit to remove the dried fecal waste is not easy s the content becomes like a rock . This finally has to be ground to put back in the soil .Are these facilities available in the vilages .

3. How will this function during monswoons

4. Flushing is required -and it needs 4-5 lit of water -other wise the toilet is not clean and smels . Is this qty of water available .

Just wondering if there has been a study on this type of toilet as this is becoming popular but is it saving water and improving the health of the comunity .If the answer is yes then why are 50% of the toilets constructed not being used .

Interesting innovation. My only concern would be that of flood - what would happen in case of floods?
