Title - Mechanically Actuated Auto Flush System
Problem Statement : Operation and Maintenance of Toilets.
Context : Maintaining cleanliness of toilets, especially public toilets is a critical issue for the organizations operating and maintaining public toilets in India. As a result, despite of spending huge sums of money to build toilets, they are sparingly used and if at all used then they are used under extreme unhygienic conditions, defeating the noble purpose of ‘Swacchha Bharat Abhiyan’ and discouraging people to use public toilets.
As per study, the lack of cleanliness of these toilets is basically due to the following five reasons:
To address this issue, we have developed a new flushing system which is completely manually operated and flushes the toilet seat automatically (without using any sensors or electricity) after every single usage of toilet.
We have developed a U&F Product, based on our patented technology that works parallel on locking & unlocking of toilet door from inside and makes sure that every time in any case the flushing activity is performed eliminating choked toilets due to improper flushing of the toilets.
As the flushing mechanism takes place simultaneously with the unlocking process of door, therefore we have name it U&F(Unlock and Flush).
