Saniflow Sanispeed doesnt pump all the water out so it backs up

We have a Sanispeed kitchen pump unit in our utility room connected to the washing machine. It worked fine for a couple of months (it was second hand) and now when the washing machine empties some of the water backs up the tube we put the hose into. We also have a combi comdensate attached. Any ideas

SOURCE: Washing machine not filling with water not washing but will empty and will spin

like the anchor idea?, no sorry, this does sound like the water is not getting to the machine, so, when you turn the machine on does it make a slight buzzing noise, if so the fault is no water in the pipes to the machine (from the house), if no buzzing check the solenoids with a multimeter for open circuit (removing the 2 wires first) oh and the plug obviously / replace solenoid if needed, i am sure this will cure your problem, if so rate me please, thank you

Check the drainpump. It may be clogged with lint or something, or blocked.

SOURCE: Keurig B100 not pumping a cup of water through

After dismantling the B100 and trouble shooting the machine I determined that the hose leading to the air pump on the right side of the B100 allowed water to back flow into the motor. The small amount of moisture eventually caused the motor to fail.

I had to find a scrap machine, which most people that have bought this piece of equipment have just thrown it in the trash, and remove the motor from the opposite side which still functioned. Since it is designed to mount to a specific side I had to appoxy the motor into place. To keep the problem from occuring again I purchased a check valve from a local pet store and put it in-line with the motor.

This solved the problem at the source and has prevented moisture from getting into the motor. Now I am a proud owner of a Frankin Pot. It's alive!

Pump randomly runs


This problem maybe caused by a slight weep of water from the cistern the saniflow has a sensitive float system , once level is reached the unit will turn on until required level is acheaved again . So check toilet bowl to see if the is a trickle of water if so you need to take a look at the flush system in your cistern.

Here is a nice link for your saniflow maintenance.

My washing machine wont wash or spin proprly


the water is not pumping out because you have a blockage in the filter unit which is located at the bottom of your machine or possibly a weak pump. the reason that your machine smells is because the water is not discharging. check the filter first for any blockages, i.e coins, bra wires etc. if that doesn't sort it you may need a new pump

Why does my washing machine (located in the laundry room) back up into my kitchen sink


I it hard to believe that a sink full of water will drain "freely" if the washing machine machine water will not. My suspect is that a minor blockage exists in the main sewer drain line-AFTER the point of connection of the washer. A cleanout point probably exists near that point of connection. Please use it to clear the line.

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 sanivite 3 has a washer connected to the bottom inlet and a sink to the top inlet. when water is run from the sink the system will pump the water out, however when the washer is discharging waste the...


A washing machine discharges water water at a very high velocity and high capacity. This is far more waste water than the pump was designed to handle. The washer discharge must be connected to what's called an "indirect waste", that is, it must discharge into a laundry tub or sump, so that the excess can be stored until it can be taken by the pump. The specific code that governs this is in chapter 27 of the International Residential Code.

Also in the manufacturers instructions, they allow the discharge from a washing machine ,through an indirect waste. [sic] "The Sanivite is a drain pump that is ideally suitable for use in a basement apartment or anywhere in the house where additional fixtures are most wanted. It will pump waste water away from a variety of sources such as: a kitchen sink, laundry sink, washing machine ***(indirect connection)***, dishwasher, bar sink, etc."

This pump will never be able to handle the discharge directly and you need to provide a receptor to accommodate a washing machine. Is there any possibility of adding a laundry tub adjacent the washer and Sanivite pump?

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.

How far can the saniflow be sited from the wc, i want to install the unit in the room next door, is this ok to do


As long as you can connect the toilet outlet spigot to the saniflo inlet, it's fine. Not recommended though as it makes the inevitable servicing more difficult and potentially messier.
