The floating toilet is developed based on Ecosan toilet, which has separated chambers for urine and feces and uses waterless treatment system. During a flood, the treatment can be applied by sprinkling lime on feces and treating urine with chlorine in another chamber. Besides, this toilet is foldable, using 1/3 of its storage, so it is easily moved and increase the amount of delivery per round.

Suggestions for further development
- The material used to make the platform should be changed to fiberglass, and foundation piles should be used only as needed to reduce the overall weight. Embedding metal in the fiberglass when attaching the piles with the foundation will accelerate the assembly.
- When assembling multiple floating toilets, the rope that holds each floating toilet together and the tow rope must be strong.
- The color of the tarp may be changed to yellow or green to appear more public-friendly.
