Pit toilets are fairly maintenance-free once constructed, but adhering to the requirements for safe pit emptying and management is very important. We advise the following:
1. Keeping the pedestal and hut clean
Regular cleaning with anti-bacterial agents are vital to effectively manage bacterial problems in and around the toilet.
2. What to do once the pit is full
Once the pit fills to within 0.5 meters of the top, it should be filled up with soil and a new pit should be constructed.
