The Urine Diversion Toilet

Model B: Urine Diversion Toilet The CEMFORCE EasyLoo UDS Toilet consists of a toilet superstructure installed over a lined (water tight) pit, but with a pedestal that separates the urine from the faeces. The urine is led through a pipe to a soak-away or alternatively collected in a suitable container and used as agricultural fertiliser.The faeces are collected in a net or bucket where it dries out, and after composting, can be used as an excellent soil conditioner. A simple slide mechanism and lid ensures fast, easy and hygienic removal of the dried faeces. The toilet complies with SANS 10365-1:2004 specifications and bears an Agrément South Africa certificate of approval (Cert. No.: 300-2003).The superstructure

The internal measurements of the superstructure are 1 100 mm deep x 840 mm wide x 2 000 mm high. The door, made from 1 mm thick galvanised steel and measuring 815 mm x 1 800 mm high, opens outwards on a steel pivotal hinge and has a spring-loaded, lockable latch.
The walls and roof of the toilet are manufactured under controlled factory conditions as 40 mm thick lightweight cement panels and assembled on site with 8 mm bolts.The panel construction resembles a sandwich of two 6 mm glass reinforced cement (GRC) skins and a 28 mm polystyrene and cement core.The superstructure for people with disabilitiesThe internal measurements of the superstructure are 1 800 mm x 1 700 mm.  The door, made from 1,2 mm thick galvanised steel measures 1 120 mm x 1 800 mm high.The pitThe pit is constructed from the same GRC panels as the superstructure, measuring 500 mm wide x 1 215 mm long x 600 mm deep, but the joints between the panels are sealed with a bitu-sealer to prevent water from entering the pit. A polypropylene bag easily fitting over a galvanised slide mechanism, is used to catch and later remove the faeces when full.The floor slabThe dimensions of the floor slab are 1 020 mm x 1 300 mm x 75 mm thick and is manufactured under controlled factory conditions from polystyrene cement (density 1000 kg/m3), reinforced with #156 steel reinforcing mesh, and a hard-wearing single 6 mm GRC skin applied on top.The plastic pedestalThe plastic pedestal (Atlas Plastics Urine separator pan; colour: granite) with white plastic toilet seat and cover (DPE FR01 ELF 82) is a standard fitting to the toilet.The vent pipeThe vent pipe, 110 mm in diameter x 2 700 mm long in black plastic (extending more than 500 mm above toilet structure) with patented vent hood is also standard. All holder bats and bolts to tie the pipe to the roof slab are supplied with the toilet kit.

The VIP Toilet

Usually the VIP is built over an open pit, dug in the ground, but in areas with unstable soil conditions a 250mm or 500mm collar is used to prevent the soil from collapsing and surface water from entering the pit. Similar to the ordinary pit latrine, faeces and urine enters into a pit where a process of natural breakdown or digestion by bacteria occurs.
