Low priced (economy) shot will cause this problem. Also you may want to try cleaning the bore with a wire brush and some solvent as you would any other firearm. Let me know if this helps

Sani plus motor continuing to stay on after the water has gone.

The Saniplus works on a pressure chamber ((float switch) i suggest that you remove all the piping attached the unit, remove the pump completely out the back of the toilet, pry open the lid using a flat head screwdriver, remove 2 or 3 screws from front and back of pump casing. Then the motor with pressure chamber can be lifted out the top of the casing as 1 piece. The pressure chamber is a white casing attached to the motor and where the power cord comes out the top. At the bottom of the pressure chamber you will find a black rubber membrane, it might be warped or solids could be build up at the bottom not allowing it to shut off. If you need to order parts you will have to call Saniflos hotline.

I have ceramic (terra cotta) block walls in my basement (house was built around 1920. The blocks are ridgid and were not laid very evenly, although the walls are sound. Plastering is an option, but with...

My house is of similar age and construction. I built a nice TV room in the basement several years ago. My method was the same as the way interior walls are built in new construction. I nailed a 2x4 to the ceiling near the wall. I nailed another 2x4 (pressure treated) to the concrete floor directly below the 2x4 on the ceiling. Then I toe-nailed vertical studs in place. For the studs I used 2x3's since this allowed me to get a nice flat plane on the front surface while allowing an inch of space on the back for irregularities of the block wall. I then covered the studs with water resistant drywall. The results were excellent and have held up very well. I also use a dehumidifier, since my basement was somewhat damp. I built the dehumidifier into a cabinet so that it draws air from the space between the block wall and the 2x3 wall. I don't need to run the dehumidifier in the winter. For the interior walls separating the TV room from the rest of the basement (furnace and workshop area) I used 2x4s for the studs, but the 2x4 along the top and bottom were just like the first wall I described. And by the way, in order to nail the pressure treated 2x4 to the floor, I used a power-nailer that uses charges that look like 22 caliber gun blanks. This seems spooky, and is wicked loud (use earplugs and safety glasses!), but it is inexpensive and very effective. The nails don't have to resist pulling out, they only have to resist being slid around, since the wall stud holds the pressure treated 2x4 against the floor. Good luck!

Pump will not cut out

Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. There is a pressure chamber (float switch) inside the pump casing. You will need to pry open the lid with a flat head screwdriver, remove 2 screws in front and 1 at the back of the pump casing. The motor with pressure chamber can be removed from the top, the pressure chamber is a small white casing attached to the motor (power cord comes out the top) at the bottom of the pressure chamber you will find a black rubber membrane (float switch) there could be a piece of hard solid stuck at the bottom not allowing it to shut off or the membrane could be warped, if is warped it will need to be replaced. Also the micro switch inside the pressure chamber may be stuck in the on position. Pressing up and down on the membrane manually will help loosen up the micro switch in case is stuck.

My saniplus is not working correctly, it doesn't drain the water from the bath and it makes a funny noise. Its any way of checking inside it?.

Could be something stuck on the blade or the impeller. You can unplug the unit from the GFI, remove all the piping attached, remove the unit completely out the back of the toilet, pry open the lid with a flat head screwdriver, remove 2 screws in front and 1 at the back of the pump casing, then you will be able to remove the motor and pressure chamber out of the pump casing. Therefore you can put it on a work bench and inspect the blade and impeller for obstructions.

On our Gator it is in the front of the vehicle. There is a screw that you have to loosen in the center of the grill under the "hood". Once you take that out there are two plastic latches on the side to be popped out. Then the whole front end will hinge down and you will see the receiver for your charger...although our charger receiver is square not round.
