Question about Toilets & Bidets

Saniflo keeps blocking?

A couple of months ago our saniflo was replaced due to various things wrong with the original. Was cheaper to replace. My letting agent agreed to that and a saniflo plumber carried out the job, he actually commented on how clean the system was (mostly due to it flushing all night i may add). He had to wait on a new flush syphon as this had also broke and would be back to complete the job. He never returned as my agent stated he was a cowboy? Basically they have used there regular plumber who hasn't a clue and since then the system backs up or blocks on a monthly basis. I don't flush anything other then regular loo roll and little of it and can't understand why it keeps occuring, On one occasion he pulled out a wet wipe which my sister owned up to, but other then that its loo roll. He won't show me whats blocking and to be honest his english is poor i wouldn't understand?! But back to my question, my shower and bathroom sink plugs are also blocking or very slow to drain as if they had a blockage too, is it possible the outlets are connected or would you need to see to say? He is meant to be looking at it tomorrow and i'm going to the letting agents to look at the evidence that they have collected on me, as i don't understand how this could be? Becoming paranoid to use the loo.

Do you have cess pool or city drain.
if it is cess pool , you need to pump it out. IT IS FULL. if it is city, you need a plumber to check the drain to the city line.

I have a Saniplus in my bathroom its connected to a sink, toilet and shower. The thing is when it is used its fine but after the pump stays running, until you tap the machine in the middle on the right,...

Your saniflo has a membrane that covers the electric and switch, it is probably starting to get covered in limescale, have you tried descaling the unit, you can get descaler from saniflo and the instructions are on the bottle, its very easy to do, there are otherb cheaper makes of descaler but as far as I know saniflo descaler is the only one with the instructions on the bottle.

There are other things it could be like a faulty switch or heavy/hardened lime scale on the same membrane mentioned above or the membrane could of be deformed and lost it's shape causing the problem, but all of those problems would need a engineer and maybe even parts, so try decaling first

Unfortunately the systems are desiged to pump out. The disintegrated screen thing is part of the maceration end of the system. Your going to have to clean the thing out and replace the macerator.

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.

What size toilet seat fits a sanicompact elite?


The manual shows that the lid and seat is of an elongated design and I think that you would need to get a direct replacement instead of trying to fit a standard seat/lid combo as a replacement. A normal seat/lid may line up with the fixing holes, but would probably not be the same elongated design.


You should be able to get a direct replacement from your plumbers merchant (may need to order), or from Saniflo directly

If this helps please leave feedback, if not let me know and I'll try and help some more!
