There child be a float with the pump to let it know when to start. I would check to make sure the float is not sticking and replace if it is.

good luck

Toilet wont flush


Main 3 (or 4) inch drain under the toilet is clogged. Requires removing the toilet and running a "snake" down the pipe. Alternately, you can (carefully) try manually filling the toilet bowl all the way to the top----to apply pressure to the clog....it may push it through.

Poor draining toilet checklist


1. Is the toilet plugged or partially plugged. I have removqed toothbrushes, combs, toys etc. from toilet traps so check for any obstructions.
2. Rust and scale buildup. The buildup of rust , sediment and or scale in the internal passages of a toilet can greatly affect their performance.clean the small holes under the rim with a small piece of wire. Use Limeaway or CLR to remove rust and scale. put some in the tank and flush toilet. Let sit for a while and repeat.
3. Improper venting or plugged vent. A toilet needs a properly vented drain to work correctly. Check the vent to make sure it is not plugged or in the northern climates frosted shut.
4. Mechanical issues. Is the flapper lifting high enough when flush lever is flipped. Is water at correct height in tank. If it is a pressure assist is water pressure high enough. Is pressure tank waterlogged.
These are just afew of the many things that can cause a poor flushing toilet. Hope this helps.

Think my young son put somthing down the toilet filled up with watre wont flush but hums intermitently


Definitely there is an obstruction on the blade or impeller inside the pump casing. Pry open the lid using a flat head screwdriver and remove the motor with pressure chamber out of the pump csing as one piece. Once the motor is out inspect the blade (on top of motor) and the impeller which is at the bottom of the motor. Also the starting capacitor may have seized up. If the capacitor goes bad it tend to hum and not pump any waste out.

We are not getting water to our toilet. When you step on the flush pedal the pump does not kick on and no water comes. We have water to all other taps and shower


There is a valve that is probably stuck....when the water empties from the cistern the float will lower with the water as it flushes...this opens the valve to allow new water in, when the float rises to the required level it shuts the valve. there is no pump just check clean or replace the valve.

My saniflo has started to go slow- it now does small pumps - one every 30 seconds so takes 5 minutes to drain the bowl. I'm pretty sure no foreign objects have gone into it as it's only me and my wife...


Typically when solids don't leave the toilet after one flush or if it short cycles like is doing, then is definitely a pressure problem. Is the unit vented via an 1 1/2" vent pipe to the open air? Please disconnect the vent pipe and leave the vent connection open to the room, flush the toilet and check if it makes a difference. Air must flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times so it can work properly. An obstruction on the vent pipe can cause this issue. Also could be calcium build up inside the rim of the bowl. Pour a few cups of vinegar on the toilet tank and then flush the toilet, it should get rid of calcium right away.

My saniflow dosnt allways come on when you flush


That can be a problem with the pressure chamber, the membrane might be warped or the micro switch may be defective. Open the lid and remove the motor and presure chamber. Inspect the unit for damages or any broken pieces. Check that the membrane is not warped. This can be tested manually by placing the motor on a work bench and putting pressure on the membrane to manually start the pump on and off. If parts are needed you can buy them through Saniflo directly. Their website is www.saniflo.com

Sanigrind pump don"t always start on all fushes


certainly indicates that the unit is not holding water (hence not starting on every flush). as you are seeing water in the shower - this is obviously where it is going. It may be that the internal flap (non return valve) is stuck open or damaged. If damaged you can put a new non return valve in your 40mm pipe run where the shower pipe enters the saniflo - about a tenner from most suppliers.
