Pit Latrine Toilets are More than Average Pit Toilets

Pit Toilet - Pit Latrine Toilet, Pit Toilets, Stainless Steel Toilets, Bathroom Toilets, Outdoor Toilets Discount SalesA pit latrine toilet is a special type of ventilated outdoor toilet that provides users with greater sanitation and comfort than the more common, basic pit toilet designs.  This is often the only option a facility can offer to people due to environmental limitations that can nonetheless be overcome to some degree to meet acceptable levels of human dignity when standard plumbing and toilet fixtures are simple not an option.


This is due to the fact that many outdoor areas cannot accommodate standard restroom toilets due to limitations on plumbing design and the lack of sewage facilities.  Toilets here must be very simple in their design.


The original pit toilets were simply pits in the ground covered by steel or molding.  For years, people accepted this out house design as part of life in an undeveloped area where technology is minimal and luxury non-existence. 


Few of these people who are ok with the idea of a slit-trench design of an out house toilet fixture have ever had to actually use one.  If they did, they would realize that there are certain problems with this most basic of designs that only a pit latrine toilet can address.    


The lack of flowing water allows for waste matter buildup that in turn creates noxious gases and odors.  These things, in turn, attract flies and other annoying insects that no one would ever want to have anywhere near them at such a time.


A few simple modifications beyond the basic slit-trench (i.e.: hole-in-the-ground) concept are necessary to build an outdoor toilet that offers a basic level of dignity, comfort, and sanitation in spite of its primitive surroundings.


The pit latrine toilet features very basic upgrades to the traditional, basic design that amount to a world of difference in functionality.  These pit toilets are much more than holes in the ground covered by metal, porcelain, or plastic.    They feature a supporting structure that stands approximately 17 inches above the ground.  A plastic toilet seat covers the opening just the seat on a standard toilet. 


More importantly, the pit latrine toilet also features a through floor extension that draws pit contents and gasses away from the center of the fixture.  This traps odors, flies, mosquitoes, and germs underground at a more comfortable distance from the human user.


These outdoor toilets are made from type 304 stainless steel and come in either a latrine design or a handicapped design. 


There are more applications for these outdoor pit toilets than the average person might first believe.  Conceivably, they can be used in any facility that lacks standard piping and sewer system services.  Pit latrine toilets are routinely used in campgrounds, parks, and rest areas along the highway. 


By minimizing odor, bacterial building, and the insect attraction factor, these simple, yet highly effective outdoor toilets offer users a level of functionality, personal comfort, and personal hygiene than preceding designs could never accomplish.
