The Saniplus takes about 1.6 gallons of water to turn on and off. Is it tripping the GFI? If it trips the GFI then the pressure chamber might be broken and is where the electrical components are. The pressure chamber will need to be replaced if cracked or broken. I'm a handy man and one of my customer had the same issue. We replaced the pressure chamber complete and it fixed the problem. Also make sure you are using a 15amp ground fault interruptor.

Local authority state saniflow may choke at rainwater trap and will not accept saniflow going into rainwater drain

Your description sounds like plumbing from before bacteria was discovered. The output from a Saniflo macerator should be sent to a foul drain or cesspit and not a rainwater drain.

Some authorities allow local rainwater runoff into foul drains but this situation is gradually being designed out.

Could be your Saniflo installation didn't meet building regulations when it was installed. The fact it has been working fine for 2 years doesn't count for anything if it doesn't.

Brand new dishwasher wont run

Because it doesn't have legs??? Seriously, I need a little more information. Make/model, new unit or replacement? I presume you installed it because an installer can't leave until it works. Is this dishwasher replacing an old one or a new install? Is the electrical tied in correctly? Is the water hooked up and running? Info, info, info!

Can I get a replacement cap for the vent on the lid of my Saniflow system ?

I've been told that any spare part can be purchased through Saniflo at 800-571-8191. If you are buying a brand new pump then it will have to be purchased through a Saniflo distributor.

Pump wont shut off


You need to check the following: Nothing connected to the saniflow is running e.g. tap dripping, ball valve in toilet cistern stuck/faulty

Any of these faults will cause the saniflo to run continuously. If none of these are visible then there is a chance that a flow switch is stuck or faulty within the unit.

I would carry out the checks first then call in an expert to service the unit.

I hope this helps.
