The study and discovery of toilets

The human anatomy creates a state of balance between food consumption and excretion. When either of them is dysfunctional, an urgent health operation is a must to save your life. The question now comes where you dispose of your human waste. Since the reflex does not understand the place and location, the earlier the better. Since time immemorial, you had to remove urine and feces from the body in an orderly manner, because they harbor germs, which can be a source of diseases and infections. The innovation of toilets has made numerous milestones to the current modern flush toilets. However, some developing countries associated with poor access to water and sanitation facilities still use the old pit latrines. Many countries give more value put water on kitchen faucet ( water than toilet.

The Roman Empire, about 2000 years ago was the first people to have a toilet but it was a topic mentioned in low tones since they believe it as an immoral subject. Over the years, various researchers in collaboration with manufacturers have improved and designed better sanitation facilities to accommodate the changing lifestyles. Currently, we have various forms of toilets to meet the demand especially during different events in private and public places. This is the order of discovery and study of different type of toilets

Pit latrines

When various health awareness programs came in existence, it was mandatory for safe disposal of human waste. Pit latrines became the cheapest form of sanitation fixture; since it just involved digging a deep hole with an enclosed walls and a door for privacy. In more advanced cases, the wall is made of bricks and cement and even painted. To remove the stench and keep it fresh always, a pipe was inbuilt to act as ventilation. In Africa, it is still the widely used type of toilet in rural areas. In urban areas, it acts as an emergency room when there is the shortage of water.

Flush toilets

This is a better version of pit latrine since it can be fixed inside the house “self-contained homes” It requires water to flush off the waste. The plumbers connect it to a pipe through to a septic tank, which can be emptied when full. Some flush toilets are inbuilt together with bathrooms to save on cost and space. Flush toilets have undergone different modification on the toilet bowls; some are toilet stools while others are pit-like in nature. The flush system is just the same.

Portable toilets

It is a sanitation policy for event organizers to design a way of human waste disposal. Portable clean toilets come in handy to solve this for they just offer assistance during the time of the event.

Chemical toilets

When you need a touch of tradition and modernity, chemical toilets fill the gap. It uses a septic-like pit and some chemicals to dilute the human waste for recycling.

Public toilets take any form of the four types of toilets, the only difference is the location and the city policy of sanitation. Water is a necessity in any type of toilet to maintain hygiene and prevent diseases and infections.
