Here is some info about Vastu for toilets. If the toilets in the house are not constructed according to Vastu guidelines they affect the health of individuals staying in the house in an adverse way. So here are a few important things to keep in mind before you start building toilets in your house.

Guidelines of Vastu for Toilets

  • One can build a toilet in the North West with an attached drainage pipe. But building a septic tank here is a bad Vastu according to some consultants.
  • The other places where the construction of a toilet can take place is in between the South and the South West. But avoid building it in the exact South West. Septic tank should not be attached to it in the South West. Also, the water closet in the toilet may be fixed on a platform higher than the floor level.
  • The proper location for a septic tank should be in the Central North or the Central East.
  • The location of the water closet should be on the North-South axis. Care should be taken to see that it is not directed towards East or West as it is related to disgracing the Sun.
  • According to Vastu toilets should never be built in the North East direction. If built it may cause severe health problems and sorrows in the family. Male members and children may be affected more.
  • Similarly, toilets should not be constructed in the North direction as well. If constructed it will cause severe money problems, conflicts in the married lives of the female members(daughter’s family) and also nervous problems and eye problems.
  • A toilet in the East North East may cause infertility problems in men in the family. It might also cause them to lose their moral values and become wayward, untruthful and spendthrifts. They often join the bad company and suffer from income loss.
  • The position of the toilet bowl should always be in the North-South direction if one is desirous of healthy bowel movements. This helps prevent piles, constipation, and other health problems.
