Back to Construction manual for the Bathroom Toilet unit

7. Or prepare for a temporary pit top construction that can be moved when the pit is full

If composting human excreta is not pracital or acceptable for the future users, the Bathroom/Toilet can be assembled over a deep pit. For the construction of the structure above the pit view the chapter "Temporary pit top construction".
Spil water from the Bathroom/Toilet can best be guided to a sink and not directly into the pit. This will reduce stink coming from the pit. Prevent the pit to be dug into groundwater for the same reason. Do not dig a pit close to a water well.
