Toilet Smart provides biological solutions to the management of pit toilets and septic tanks as it cleans and speeds up degradation process in a pit latrine or septic tank by converting the solids into water and carbon dioxide.

Toilet Smart is an easy to use granular powder, packed in sealed plastic sachets weighing around 300grams containing bacteria with ability to degrade human waste, paper and all organic matter in the pit latrine or septic tank.

Among the benefits of Toilet Smart include capable of lowering the levels in a pit toilet by 6 to 8 centimeters per month, increases the life span of the toilet from a minimum of 5 years to maximum 15 years that’s eliminating the need to dig new holes for a long time.

The substance is also said to be non-toxic that the toilet can be used as soon as Toilet Smart has been applied.
