Eco-Cistern System / Toilet

Eco-Cistern System
Eco-Cistern System

We have improved the current bathroom drainage system: the upstairs bathroom wastewater is used to clean the toilet downstairs after passing through the filtration equipment.
The residents on the top floor can clean the toilet by purifying the rainwater collected, and the residents on the downstairs can clean the toilet by purifying the wastewater on the upstairs. The design cleverly uses the principle of gravity, so that the wastewater can be filtered under gravity without extra energy supply.
The device used for purification will have water storage function at the same time, and provide sufficient cleaning water for urban residents.
