Water keeps flowing back into the macerator

There should be a check valve installed in the discharge elbow, check if the check valve is installed or it might just be stuck open so when waste water is pumped out, it slowly drains back into the unit creating water pressure that is making it kick on and off.

The float switch will be the problem.
We do not replace the switch, just change the unit as labour to strip and replace switch makes it un economical.

Hi. I have a saniflow macerator,it's servicing just the toilet. I installed it about 9 months ago. I have had no problems untill this morning. It is making a clunking noise, the pump is working as normal,...

Hi Neil,
The pump is activated by a pressure switch inside the unit and would not normally make any noise, so probably can rule that one out!

From the manual on the saniflo it would suggest either a foreign object in the unit, a defective motor or control unit. It may be that you are unlucky and have a loose macerator blade that needs to be tightened (and loctite applied).

I would double check that the clunking is definitely coming from inside the unit and not a pipe or something else moving (the water pushing the 90 degree rubber discharge tends to move and can create movement around it). When you are sure, it will be the not so nice job of opening up the unit:

FIRST .. RUN THROUGH CLEAN WATER (will make sense later!)

- Empty the Cistern, bowl and disconnect the inlet pipes to the WC
- remove the WC and cistern
- being very careful, disconnect the outlet (some have non return valves, some don't, so you may get some sludge coming back down the pipe). Hopefully none if you pushed enough clean water through initially

get unit out and wear rubber gloves to protect your hands from getting germs in cuts etc. Normally need a star driver and flat blade screwdriver

If it is the macerator blade it should be clear that it is loose and could be tightened up. It could be play in the motor which unfortunately would mean a new unit - to test, gently pull up on macerator blade and feel for movement vertically.

also check for any foreign objects etc.

While it is out you may as well clean it out - I normally do this outside by putting warm bleached water into the unit for around 30mins, swishing it about and then emptying down a drain (cover up the mains cables in a plastic food bag first!). I also sometimes use a hose pipe to really get into all of the nooks.

Good luck with the fix, if this helps pls leave feedback, if not let me know and I'll try and help some more

It is blocked how do i unblock it

Turn off electricity to saniflo.Turn off water to toilet (normally an inline valve). Empty toilet bowl and cistern of water. Remove toilet, cistern. Disconnect inlet pipes to saniflo (careful as backed up water will flow out!).

Take out Saniflo (outside is normally good). Open up top with star driver and use a flat blade for the plastic retaining flaps.Be sure to wear rubber gloves to keep out germs from cuts etc on your hands.

Cover mains cables with plastic food bag and tape up. Use a solution of bleach / warm water, fill up the sanifo and leave for a while. Swish around and empty into a drain etc. I also use a hosepipe to make sure I get it really clean (esp under motor and float switch). Also check inlet pipe flappy bit and the actual pipes that connect to the saniflo

Good luck

How to unclog the macerator - Saniflo TurboFlush P

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.

Noisy Sanifloplus Saniflo unit

Could be that the motor is not sitting straight, instead it cuuld be tilted and when it pumps, it vibrates and makes a loud noise. Or could be something stuck on the impeller or pump cover plate. Pry open the lid with a flat head screwdriver then remove the motor and pressure chamber, therefore you can inspect it. Good luck.

Sounds like a restriction in the outlet pipe, the 2 galls from a flush are OK but the bath or shower is more, especiallly if you have flushed before you shower, try drain unblocking chemicals or flushing the outlet pipe with mains water from a hose
