This study denoted the evident potential of the baffled septic tank for the treatment of toilet wastewater in tropical regions and demonstrated the potentials of this system compared to the conventional septic tank. The introduction of baffles can lead to considerable increases of the treatment performance. Fluctuations of the effluent quality are very well equalised, especially in treatment units with a high number of baffles. This is an important aspect considering the requirements towards potential post-treatment steps.
