Does the shower or sink back up into the toilet bowel after running for a few minuits?

If not:


The bowel is clogged. Fill it with water then use a plunger

My saniflo pump turns on about every six hours or so on its own.what could be the ploblem?


Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. Most likely somehow water is draining back into the pump. Check the flapper in the flush valve, inside the toilet tank and see if its leaking water into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump. Also, in the 90 degree discharge elbow there is a check valve with a rubber flapper that opens up to allow waste to pump out and it closes to prevent waste water from draining back into the pump. The check valve may be defective or it may be stuck open allowing waste water to drain back into the pump and is making the unit kick on and off by itself.

Sanipro continuously runs,however, not pumping waste away and waste water has filled toilet bowl. Any suggestions


There can be a blockage somewhere in the discharge pipe, the blade or impeller. Also the short discharge pipe or long elbow inside the pump casing may be split open or not attached properly and waste water is just cycling inside the pump casing. Worst case scenario could be a bad capacitor, the capacitor spins the blade and impeller, it that goes bad the unit will just hum and not pump any waste out until is replaced. You can also order parts through Saniflo if needed.

System works perfect however the pump now has started turning on every 10 or 12 min and runs for about 2 seconds then shuts off


This means that water is draining back into the pump, creating enough water pressure that is making the pump kick on and off at all times. You need to inspect the check valve inside the discharge elbow where the waste is being pumped out, the check valve may be obstructed or may need to be replaced. Also check the flapper on the flush valve inside the toilet tank (water closet) the flapper may not be sitting properly allowing water to drain into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump.

We have a saniflo compact the toilet will flush 3 out of 5 times and the motor sounds fine but the other times when flushed it will sound like it is trying to flush and then just turns off at the end of...


This could be a problem with the capacitor that has gone bad or something stuck on the blade or impeller and is not allowing the waste to be pumped out. Typically when the capacitor has seized up or there is a clog on the drain pipe, blade or impeller; the unit will just hum and not pump the waste out and eventually back up on the toilet and overflow.

Saniflo Top: Pump


indicates perhaps a faulty pressure switch. otherwise: this happens often in hard water areas due to build up of limescale. Use a descaling agent (acidic) to clean the saniflo - can be introduced via the toilet bowl.

My daughter flushed he winter hat down the toilet. How do i get it out?


Kids eh?

.. I had my son flush LOTS of wipes down ours ...

*** STEP 1 ... DISCONNECT THE MAINS POWER SUPPLY!!!! ***

You'll need to drain the main toilet bowl of water and remove the toilet bowl away from the sanoflo. This may require that you also empty the cistern and stop the water from entering it (do you have an inline valve to the cistern supply pipe?)

When you have emptied the water and removed the toilet bowl there should be a large Jubilee clip attaching the saniflow to the WC waste outlet. Loosten this and remove it so you can see into the saniflo where the WC waste goes.

You should be able to see the object and reach it with your hands. I would suggest wearing some rubber gloves to protect your hands from getting gunk in cuts etc.

If you cannot get to the object, you'll need to empty out the other pipes to the Saniflo and remove the unit. When you have done this you'll need a star driver to open up the unit and get to the object inside. I would suggest that since most of the saniflo range have an internal grille to stop objects such as this actually hitting the macerator that you should be able to reach it just by disconnecting the WC waste connection

If this helps please leave feedback
