Either the rubber membrane or the microswitch is at fault.

Fusty fishy smell coming from saniflo unit


Dean:

You need to check and see if the unit cycles immediately after you flush. After that, try tapping on the outside of the unit with you hand (thump it) to see if the unit will cycle again. If it does, it is not emptying completely. The issue is then with the air cycle valve.

If it seems to be cycling ok, go to Home Depot or Lowes and look for the Zep (Brand) enzyme drain cleaner. Put the enzyme cleaner down the sink (if one is connected) and let it sit for 24 hours. This will help clean out any sludge in the unit. You might try the enzyme treatment once a week for a month and see if that helps.

Normally, I have found the smell comes from the units not cycling properly and completly emptying the units to the proper level. They stay overfull and generate the smell.

If its the air cycle valve, let me know and I will tell you how to address that issue.

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.

The amount of time that the pump operates is determined by the amount of water that is drained into the unit. If the amount of water from the sink is less them the amount flushed then the pump will run accordingly.

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.
