Piloting and testing the pour flush latrine technology for its applicability in South Africa

This project investigated the potential for modifying the pour flush design, which is used widely in Asia, to
meet the needs of the South African context. The development and application of pour flush systems in Asia
was studied. Three case studies were conducted to investigate the experience of South Africans with low
flush systems in the past and related technologies were surveyed. A prototype was developed and tested
after which the technology was piloted in twenty homes for usage periods of up to eighteen months. The
systems were monitored over the course of the project and performance and user experience were assessed
at the end of the project.
