Unimproved Sanitation Facilities
Waterless Toilets That Last
Healthy communities depend on proper sanitation, and proper sanitation means providing families with a convenient, reliable toilet.
The team behind the TfP Waterless Toilet designs, constructs, sells and distributes privately owned, indoor waterless toilets using inexpensive, locally sourced materials. We designed the TfP Waterless Toilet for use in poor communities, especially those prone to flooding. These toilets are aesthetically pleasing, innovative, and easy to use.
The TfP Waterless Toilet design maximizes aerobic degradation at levels previous designs have been unable to reach.
Above-ground vault latrines (also referred to as EcoSan latrines) are the default option in most flood-prone areas where pit latrines and flush toilets fail.
While effective, the disadvantages of this toilet option include that they can be expensive and time consuming to construct from large quantities of brick and cement, require considerable space, and are difficult for users to safely maintain since the users need to remove and dispose of a cubic yard of waste (which often still contains dangerous pathogens) from the vault when they become full.
The TfP Waterless Toilet brings one of the simplest, most proven, and popular private composting toilet designs from the developed world to the developing world by using low-cost, local materials and appropriate technology.
