Sound to me that the toilet is over filling and in doing so water will over flow down the pan. This is definately what I would check first!

We have a basement bathroom. The bath drains away very slowly, but everything else seems fine - toilet and sink draining/flushing fine. Can we use a usual unblocker (eg sodium hydorchloride) to unblock?


I worked on a lot of Saniflo products, they do not recommend using any products that have bleach or chlorine. Make sure the flapper inside the side inlet where the bath drains, is not obstructed.

There is a product called Wham that works very well for this appplication.You will probably have to go to a plumbing supply outlet to find it. Just follow directions on container after you have the system clean and use monthly. It also helps with odor control. Hope this helps you. Thanks.

Saniflow system keeps frequently flushing even when the system isn't being used. the system is working normally but it keeps flushing through the day and night.


Need to check the flapper inside the toilet tank. this is what opens when you press on the toilet handle. you may need to replace it or replace the whole flush valve assembly.

Our saniflo system works ok, its just when left idle, the pump seams to start up every 40 secs. I've flushed it and held up the ball **** and it stills does it. Any ideas?


One thing to check is the check valve may be leaking back, float may be faulty, toilet maye be leaking and filling tank causing pump to come on.

Check out this link with a trouble shooting guide for this unit.

This first kink has information on different types of Santiflo systems.

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.

When flushed pump starts water goes but pump keeps running when level is reached


pump keeps running - again this is indicative of a dirty / scaled saniflo. You need to clean / descale the saniflo. if this does not work then an outlet pipe blockage (22mm) may have occurred (unlikely if the unit is operating ok). Saniflo sell their own cleaner, which can be introduced via the wc bowl. If this does not work, then its time for a proper clean ( remove unit, jet clean, acid descale, wash, replace). Obviously not everyones cuppa tea.

Sanibest toilet is LOUD when flushed


Shut down the power and pull the pump from the unit and give it a exam. There might be something as simple as a item that was flushed down the toilet (pencil, pens, combs, etc.) or just a hair clump. Check that the float is free to track fully up and down. Good Luck!
