In up to 40% of the land mass in Eastern Africa, pit toilets are not feasible due to loose soil and high water tables being more vulnerable to contamination. Densely populated areas are also at risk of pit latrines. Our Eko-loo brand toilet block is the full ecological solution with no pit use. Sitting above ground, the EkoLoo diverts sterile urine, which is then mixed with gray household water and used as a liquid fertilizer to a vegetable garden or soak pit. Faeces, when collected separately, dries out to a quarter of its original volume and can be incinerated to dispose. Alternately, the faeces are collected and dried out for a longer period(when microbes and other and can be added to soil as fertilizer.
EKO-LOO consists of a complete hut and slab and is based on “the Don’t Mix” – the urine diversion principle. Urine (90% of excreta) and faeces (only 10% of excreta) are kept separate at source and disposed of differently. EKO-LOO comprises a hut with a squatting slab, or a slab with pedestal, with urine cavity for urine diversion and faeces drop hole. A container is placed under the faeces drop hole to collect faeces. A small length of flexible pipe is connected to urine cavity at one end and to any container (placed outside of EKO-LOO) at the other end to collect urine. A wall of bricks, stones or blocks is built of required height.
MOBILET is the most convenient and least expensive long term sanitation solution wherever pit toilets are suitable.

Our unique patented slab toilet is our most popular and affordable product.

Once the pit is full, the toilet can be moved to a new site and the old pit filled, removing a serious safety risk. The Mobilet is best suited for institutional use, like schools, clinics or hospitals, or in refugee and IDP camps.
