    either call aplumber or prepare to get a little dirty and youl have to undo the piping wher it goes into your saniflow so you can gain acces to the clog and access the problem

Water is flowing back to shower tray macerator not switching on


Usually Saniflo requires 8" or 9" from top of p-trap to floor level, not from top of shower base to floor level. If the base is raised 8" then you will have enough room to fit a p-trap without cutting the concrete, if you had cut the floor to fit the p-trap then the base is not raised high enough to maintain the water pressure inside to engage the unit.

SaniCompact48 waste water comes up into shower tray when flushing


Got a blockage in your out pipe, could be a rag or a big tur. You need to snake out the main drain going out of your house.

I have a saniplus in a bathroom with a sink & shower. It isn't used often. The water backs up in the shower. The toilet won't flush, only hums. Any suggestions?


If the pump is humming and backing up then there is a blockage on the drain pipe, blades or the impeller. Also the capacitor may have gone bad and it will need to be replaced. The capacitor drives the blade and impeller, if it goes bad then it would just hum and not pump out the waste.

When our toilet is flushed there is a lapse of a few seconds before the pump kicks in and during this time some water comes back up the shower drain. It does not seem to be waste from the toilet but we'd...


The plumbing under the slab floor has been roughed in wrong and without breaking up the floor and replaceing you cann adjust the floats in the pump pitr to come on earlier to avoid pit filling up as fast causing the waste to back up in the tub/ shower area.

Waste coming up shower trap


Installed in a basement I assume. You do indeed have a clog (before it reaches the maserator).

Cleaning tank on Saniflo/Sanibest


We have a maserator in en-suite which serves the toilet & shower, We moved in to house 6 years ago and it was already here. After having guests stay a couple of months ago the maserator hasnt worked properly. When we flush the toilet, the water rises and whilst the cistern is filling with water, there is a humming noise for a couple of minutes, then the water rushes back down and there is a clonk and the water bubbles back up through the shower plug hole.Any suggestions as to what this problem is & how to fix it please?

Our Saniflo - Saniplus works fine and efficiently when we flush the toilet, if we use the shower or bath,when emptying the water the flow is not as strong/as much pressure like a toilet flush & the...


Sounds like a restriction in the outlet pipe, the 2 galls from a flush are OK but the bath or shower is more, especiallly if you have flushed before you shower, try drain unblocking chemicals or flushing the outlet pipe with mains water from a hose

Hi, I had my sani plus for a year now , the shower doesnt work


so the wc works but notthe shower, where the shower connects in on the saniplus is a not return valve which could be stuck in the closed position??
Have you checked thatthe shower trap isnt blocked with hair etc.
If the wc works & the unit is pumping away then the motor is working ok, so it could be a flow switch problem or as i said thers no flow through the shower waste pipe-work due to a possible blockage
