SOURCE: The macerator wont turn off after toilet flushed -

try cleaning with an acid descaler. if that doesnt work then its time to replace the pressure switch (micro-switch). These often give up well before the unit has reached its last legs.

First unplug the unit from the GFI, remove all the piping attached to the pump, remove the pump completely out the back of the toilet. Pry open the lid with a flat head screw driver, remove 2 screws in front of the pump and the motor and pressure chamber can be pulled out the top as one piece. Inspect the blades (on top of motor) also inspect the impeller which is at the bottom of the motor, you must turn the black pump cover plate counter clock wise to unlock it and inside there you will find the impeller. Also check the drain pipe for obstructions.

If you flush the toilet at least 3 times and water does not back up on the toilet then is working. In case the pump fails the pump will fill up about 3 to 4 gallons of water before it overflows or backs up. You can also try disconnecting the discharge pipe off the discharge elbow and place a bucket at the end of the discharge elbow and flush the toilet into the bucket, if water is discharged into the bucket then is working properly.

Typically this will have if the pump is either not vented at all or lack of air flow on the vent pipe. Most of this units have an 1 1/2" vent connection on top of the lid which should be vented to the open air to allow air to flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times. If you already have a vent pipe connected, disconnect it from the top of the lid and leave the vent connection open to the room so air can flow in and out, then flush the toilet, one flush should get rid of all the solids. Also check the rim of the bowl, water should enter evenly all around the rim of the bowl. If you see more water on one side than the other, then could be calcium build up or an obstruction inside the rim of the bowl.

This seems like a problem with your cistern and not your macerator - I have a similar set up and if your push button is stuck you need to check the mechanism in the cistern - also you should have an overflow that drains into your loo within the cistern so you should check this for blockages as well.

Gain access to the macerator float(s), and make sure that they operate freely. You may have some packaging or other material preventing it's correct operation.

Sanicompact motor operates continuously but bowl doesn't clear. Have emptied bowl manually and poured Saniflo cleaner in.


This problem occurs when the flush button is damp after cleaning the whole toilet with a shower. Solution: Wait till it dries up 2) if you have installed a main switch put it on and at the same time press the flush button.

At the moment we have a saniflo plus but the whole system has blocked but the pipes are clear what should we do next


If the toilet doesn't flush but the rest of the plumbing works fine you may need to buy a closet auger to clear the toilet stoppage, they cost around $20 and do wonders much better then plungers

Bad smell fro macerator when toilet flushed after being left overnight


Typically on macerating or grinder pumps there is a small 1/2" breather hole on top of the lid, about the size of a dime or nickel. That breather hole must be kept plugged or seal cap. If left open, odor will escape through there. Make sure the pump is vented using an 1 1/2" vent pipe which must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times. Also you might want to check for loose connection or waste water leaking from the pump, toilet or any of the connections.
