➡ Hygienic Pit Latrine Replacement
I’d like to introduce you to our latest innovation.
Our aim is to promote hygienic human waste management systems that are simple and low cost replacement of the pit latrine toilets commonly found in rural and urban homesteads.
We aim to stop the contamination of our rivers and under ground water and to stop feeding nutrients to invasive plants like water hyacinth in Lake Victoria.
➡We’ve developed a simple low cost replacement for the pit latrine
Because a lot of dignity and self esteem is associated with having a clean loo, we’ve nicknamed it The Merry Loo 😋
➡The Merry loo is a simple low cost replacement for the pit latrine. It mainly features a multi chamber digester to ensure total liquidation of solids and complete fermentation, which also means the system never fills up and never requires emptying.
➡The system can be primed with cow dung to produce biogas, or with EM to inhibit methane production. This will depend on the desires of the user.
➡The resultant bio-fertiliser is fed through shallow French drains and plants grown on top to take advantage of the 24/7 irrigation, as well as suck up the nutrients so they don’t end up in the rivers and lakes.
➡This also means the system never fills up and never require emptying.
➡The systems are prefabricated and install very easily and quickly.
➡The system installs above ground so rocky areas and high water tables are not an issue.
We’re developing 2 models, the 1st a full bathing room as pictured that can be attached to the house, so the occupants no longer need to track down the shamba to a smelly pit latrine. The second will be a simple loo.
➡The design will suite rentals in urban areas and replace bucket and flying toilets.
➡We are setting up training for youth groups and CBO’s interested in taking this simple clean technology to the people.
The main Features include;
✅– Non-biodegradeable separator
✅– 7 stage fermenter
✅– Squat Asian style loo
✅– Shower basin
✅– EM priming culture
➡ Ideal for rural homes of 5 – 6 members
