Toilet construction video

related country: Pakistan
related country: Pakistan

We are looking for good video resources to include as part of a training package on how to build toilets, particularly:

  • Eco San Toilet
  • Twin Pit Latrine
  • VIP Latrine
  • Decentralized wastewater treatment system

We are of course using good old Google, but would very much appreciate links or offline resources from anyone who might have. As the context is Pakistan, anything from South Asia would be appreciated, but of course as these technologies are in use everywhere, videos from elsewhere are equally helpful.

Many thanks

The link shows how to make Eco San Toilet, though it is in Benglai language but by visual it can be understandable.


It's a very nice short video. Are there other type of latrine construction videos available on this link?
