SSG have been testing the Gulper II for about a month now, and the device seems to work quite well with no more breakages. Yes it does pump thicker sludge than the gulper I, making it an improved device.

I would say the device is on sale, but demand is currently so low that no one has purchased it yet. I currently don't see commercial demand for gulper IIs going beyond 5 devices per year, unless the demand is coming from NGOs.

SSG will probably be the main customer as we aim to scale up the piki piki emptying model, firstly in Kampala.

Sam from SaniHub has been working on the device, and can shed further light on its progress.
