The SmartSan is a new modular latrine that is made up of durable, reinforced and precast concrete blocks. The SmartSan components are made of concrete i.e. roof slab, wall blocks, slab and the blocks are joined using metallic pegs. The doors can be made of wood, metallic sheet or iron sheet. The SmartSan is constructed in 2 to 3 days depending on the number of stances, the stances range from one to six, and it can be connected to sewer line/septic. It is long-lasting, it can be deployed using a sanitation loan obtained from microfinance institutions (MFIs) since it can readily be disassembled and removed if a client fails to pay. , and it avoids the common problems of other latrines arising from poor workmanship, delays by masons and over-charging.
