Environmental & Economic Benefits

Calculated Per Year Water Saved If Sulabh Two-pit System Is Implemented For 700 Million People


Using Sulabh toilet an amount of 8 litres of water per flush is saved per person in comparison to septic tank that requires 10 litres of water to flush toilet (Sulabh requires only 2 litres of water to flush).


If 700 million people use such a toilet a calculated amount of 5,600 million litres of water will be saved per flush. Taking into account use of flush twice a day the figure will be 11,200 million litres per day or 40, 88,000 million litres per annum.
