For several decades, my backyard in Marlborough, Harare, has been used as a testing ground for the development of ideas related to technical aspects which might support rural water supplies and sanitation in Zimbabwe. My work in WASH began in 1973.
The range of toilets includes the Blair VIP, the Arborloo, the ventilated Arborloo (light and portable structure), the ventilated Arborloo (with brick structure), the Skyloo (a version of the urine diverting system, a variety of pedestals, tubular PVC vent pipes using 20% shade cloth as fly screen, hand washing facilities and demonstrations of various slabs and ring beams. Most of these have already been described in details elsewhere on the website. Special features include the use of thick walled 110mm PVC pipe as the vent pipe fitted with 20% shade cloth material which is cheap and resistant to solar radiation. This is currently on trial, as stainless steel and aluminium screens are either expensive or difficult to find as fly screen material. Another feature is the use of pedestals in Blair VIP and ventilated Arborloo toilets. We can now go through the range of toilet systems being demonstrated.
