Portable Chemical Toilets

Portable Chemical Toilets

According to data provided by Stats SA, around 30% of black households in South Africa, don’t have access to improved sanitation. This results in them having to use pit toilets shared by many others. The problems households using shared toilet facilities experience can include poor hygiene, long waiting times, full or blocked toilet, no water to flush the toilet or wash their hands and even physical safety threats.

Chemical toilets are a solution to the current sanitation problem many South Africans are facing. A chemical portable toilet collects human waste in a holding tank. To minimize odours and perform partial disinfection of the waste, it uses strong chemicals. This makes chemical toilets a much more hygienic option.

How Often Should a Chemical Toilet Be Emptied?

Cleaning the toilet regularly with anti-bacterial agents is vital to manage bacterial problems effectively. The waste will need to be transported to a sewerage treatment facility once the drums are full.

Depending on the number of people who use the toilet, this could be once or twice a week. Ensure you adhere to local legislation by making use of a licensed hauling company.
