Chemical Toilet 101: Everything You Need to Know

A study by Stats SA indicates that approximately 30% of black households in South Africa lack access to improved sanitation. This results in them using pit toilets that many others use. Households using shared toilet facilities may experience poor hygiene, extended waiting times, overflowing toilets or blocked toilets, insufficient water supply to flush the toilet or wash their hands, and even threats to their physical safety.

 The current sanitation issue faced by many South Africans is addressed by chemical toilets. Chemical toilets collect human waste in a holding tank. Strong chemicals are used to minimize odours and partially disinfect the waste. As a result, chemical toilets are much more hygienic than conventional toilets.

What Is the Recommended Frequency of Emptying a Chemical Toilet?

It is extremely important to clean the toilet regularly with antibacterial agents to help manage bacterial problems effectively. Once the drums are full, the waste must be transported to a sewerage treatment facility for treatment.

 You may need to do this once or twice a week, depending on how many people use the toilet. Ensure that you follow local regulations by utilizing a licensed hauling company.

  • Easy access to a convenient, mobile solution

  • Easy to transport
