Hi Rhock, we have used the SatoPan in Bangladesh, Nepal and also Nigeria. The current pans (developed by American Standards - who are now called Lixil) and produced in your area by RFL Plastics Ltd in Bangladesh, are squate style pans but they do I believe have a seated version in development as well as products to facilitate these being used with an offset pit. The water usage on these is very low.

They are also relatively cheap ex factory and RFL is able to export easily - e.g. we have sent a container load to Timor Leste. For the information of others, there is also a licensed manufacturer in Uganda now.
