Either the rubber membrane or the microswitch is at fault.

My neighbours saniflow toilet is drivng me mad. The motor keeps whirring every 5 mins. Whats the problem, please!


Water pressure is what makes the unit kick on and off. If its kicking on by itself most likely water is somehow draining back into the pump. Start by checking the flapper in the flush valve inside the toilet tank, it may be leaking water into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump. Also inspect the check valve inside the 90 degree elbow where the waste is pump out from. The check valve may not be closing properly and is allowing waste water to drain back into the pump creating water pressure making the unit kick on and off by itself.

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.

Hi every now and again we are getting a sewer smell from our bathroom we have only recently moved in the house so not sure what to do, but it doesn't seem to happen all the time and everything flushes okay...


The smell may be coming from the sink trap if there is a problem with the vent pipe (that's in the wall from the sewer line to the roof). Do you ever hear gurgling in the sink drain when you flush? When you have the smell again, stick your head in the sink and see if that's where it's coming from. If you have a floor drain, the smell may be coming from there. In either case, a bit of water added to the drain will fill the trap and stop the smell. Please vote if you found this helpful. Good luck, Al K

Saniflow pump keeps comming on without flushing toilet


Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. If it's turning on by itself then most likely somehow water is draining back into the pump. It could be leaking water from the toilet tank, to the bowl and from the bowl to the pump. Or the check valve inside the discharge elbow may not be closing all the way down and is allowing waste water to drain back into the pump creating enough water pressure that makes the pump kick on and off. Inspect the flapper on the flush valve and the check valve on the discharge elbow on top of the macerating pump.

The saniflo keeps cutting in even when not flushed


Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. It will turn on by itself if water is somehow draining back into the pump. It could be water leaking from the toilet tank into the bowl and from the bowl to the pump or the flapper on the check valve inside the discharge elbow may be stuck open or could be defective and allowing waste water to drain back into the pump, once it builds up enough water pressure inside the pump, the unit will kick on and off by itself.

My saniflow dosnt allways come on when you flush


That can be a problem with the pressure chamber, the membrane might be warped or the micro switch may be defective. Open the lid and remove the motor and presure chamber. Inspect the unit for damages or any broken pieces. Check that the membrane is not warped. This can be tested manually by placing the motor on a work bench and putting pressure on the membrane to manually start the pump on and off. If parts are needed you can buy them through Saniflo directly. Their website is www.saniflo.com

My macerator turns off and stops working for 10 - 15 minutes


the macerator is over heating.check the maintenance opening and clean it ,but you may need a more powerful macerator,some are made only for flushing systems (as in toilets) a pro-longed use may be making it overheat.. good luck
