Hi ya,

the macerator will dispose of most stuff, providing its within the manufacturers requirements.

The unit is made of stainless steel so it should be ok, however the seals are made of neoprene & according to the amount of perm solution put down the unit, especially as its quite acidic, so it could be leaking due to the seals being eaten away by the perm solution etc.
My advice would be to dilute the solutions as soon as you put them in the unit & run water so as to make sure it doesnt sit in the unit.
But however my professional advise would be to dispose of it down a suitable drain point.

If you look on the saniflo website they will direct you to a service engineer in your area

Kindly

Richie

I have a saniplus toilet, the macerating unit runs about every 2 minutes for 1-2 seconds at a time. I'ver replaced the flapper and even turned off the water to the unit and stopped using it, but it keeps...


Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. Water could be leaking from the toilet tank into the bowl and from bowl into the pump. Or the check valve inside the discharge elbow (on top of the lid) may not be sitting properly or is being obstructed causing waste water to leak inside the pump, creating enough water pressure to make the unit kick on and off by itself.

Bad smell fro macerator when toilet flushed after being left overnight


Typically on macerating or grinder pumps there is a small 1/2" breather hole on top of the lid, about the size of a dime or nickel. That breather hole must be kept plugged or seal cap. If left open, odor will escape through there. Make sure the pump is vented using an 1 1/2" vent pipe which must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times. Also you might want to check for loose connection or waste water leaking from the pump, toilet or any of the connections.

Pump cycles often


The following are the possible problems and solutions:
  1. The tank flapper (Flush Valve) leaking allowing water into bowl. Make sure flapper is fully seated. If flapper is fully seated and still is leaking replace flapper.
  2. Faulty Non-Return Check Valve, water leaking back into Macerator. Clean and Inspect check valve replace if after clean water still flows back into Macerator.
I hope this answers your question and gives you a few more places to look. Please rate the answer on it's helpfulness. Good Luck and have a great day. Jeff

Pump wont stop


The following are the possible problems and solutions:
  1. The tank flapper (Flush Valve) leaking allowing water into bowl. Make sure flapper is fully seated. If flapper is fully seated and still is leaking replace flapper.
  2. Faulty Non-Return Check Valve, water leaking back into Macerator. Clean and Inspect check valve replace if after clean water still flows back into Macerator.
  3. Check micro switch, the micro switch turns on pump when the water level reaches to a determined level. Location of switch is in the pressure chamber. Check to see if switch is sticking. Note: For safety Macerator should never be operated with lid open

Seems to be leakage out of the hole on the top of the macerator tank


If hole has a carbon filter in it then this is the air vent. If water is leaking from here then a known fault so contact nearest sani engineer (2yr warranty). Check water is not dripping down from above first!

Our macerator allows water to go to top of toilet bowl and the maceraor itself seems to be leaking water on to the floor. Any ideas?


blocked or VERY dirty saniflo. This unit will have to be removed for complete cleaning and descaling. check the 22mm outlet pipework for blockages. Once spotless, check the unit for operation and then reinstall. Se my other posts for how to.

How to install toilet macerator?


on your out put pipe make sure you put as few turns and bends in it as you can, this will help the pump out when it's grinding and pushing it up. also you will want to use schedule 80 pvc pipe if you can get it and make sure you prime and glue every fitting well because you do not want that to leak when it's started up. it's always good to put a check valve on it as well some where close to where it enters the tank and a shut off valve, the glued pvc valves are handy because you dont have to worry about them leaking
