Question about Saniflo 013/003/005 Sanibest Toilet with Grinder Series Pump in White Round

1 Answer

Sanibest toilet is LOUD when flushed

My sanibest pump was working properly for a while and would drain out the pump with a medium length burst when full (I also have a washing machine and sink draining into the unit). Now, it seems to drain out using an endless series of short bursts. The main problem, is when you flush the toilet, it is now REALLY LOUD, so I am assuming there is a problem with the macerator. It actually shakes the house now when flushed. When the toilet is flushed, it gives a short burst, followed by the long, loud burst, followed by another short burst. Is the macerator maybe plugged up with something? Is this something I can fix myself, or does it need to go into the shop? Any info would be great! Thanks.

Shut down the power and pull the pump from the unit and give it a exam. There might be something as simple as a item that was flushed down the toilet (pencil, pens, combs, etc.) or just a hair clump. Check that the float is free to track fully up and down. Good Luck!

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.
