The Indian state of Uttar Pradesh has unveiled an innovative system to clean toilets with an electro-powered shower, a new trend that has been gaining popularity in the country.
The Bharatiya Janata Party government has launched the project in the western state of UP in order to provide cleaner water for people.
It is hoped that the system, called Solar Shower for Cleaning, will be adopted nationwide.
The shower will be powered by electricity and will deliver water to toilets and showers.
In addition, the government has developed a water dispenser that will supply water to households using an electric tank.
The new system will be rolled out in a pilot phase.
It will be installed on about 2,500 toilets and will be accessible to all households.
The shower is powered by an electrostatic field that is transmitted through the water supply.
It sends a charge to the electric tank and then a charge is delivered to the water dispensing device.
This process is monitored by the system to ensure no leakage of electricity and that the water is not contaminated.
The water is then used for household chores such as washing, washing clothes and using the toilet.
It has a capacity of 1,200 litres per day, which is equal to about two and a half litres of water per person.
The state government has already installed the device in several toilets and has promised to roll out the technology nationwide.
