Pit Latrines in South Africa

There are an estimated 4 million pit latrines in South Africa. Waste drops into a large open pit, where the organic material decomposes and liquids percolate into the surrounding soil. The open pit latrines are sometimes used to dump foreign objects, which results in reducing the storage capacity and shortening the life span of the pit latrine.

The REPIT pit latrine meets many of the challenges of these unsecured pit latrines in South Africa.
