SOURCE: my saniflo will not pump out and water is backing

Probably blocked on the intake pipework. You'll need to get the Saniflo out, clean out all the build up from the inside and try again. It is probably an idea to try and clean the pipes as well.

Not really advisable to use Mr.Muscle or other drain cleaners on the Saniflo range as it can eat the seals.

Good luck

SOURCE: saniflo pump has a delay, kicks in 15 mins after flushed.

Either the rubber membrane or the microswitch is at fault.

SOURCE: pump keeps running and i unplug it and wait 30

It sounds to me like the impeller is not engaged with motor shaft. I would remove pump and check and see if set screw is loose or if impeller is broke. Thank you.

Saniflo is working its only connected to a sink but only pumps three quaters of the water away then stops and leaves rest of water in the sink


Sounds like the pump needs to be de-watered completely and cleaned. There is a pressure chamber that contains, I am guessing here since I hve never taken one apart, a float and a microswitch. If the float gets heavy with gunk or gets a hole in it, it will not float as well and will take more water in the drain pipe to cause it to rise up and activate the micro switch. I don't know how hard it is to disassemble these units but hope it is fairly simple since they are pricey. You said it was only on a sink, not a toilet or both. It is possible that grease has built up (the gunk) and a hot water flush may do the job for you but it will take a lot of hot water flowing through the grinder, that of some grease dissolving drain cleaner.

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.

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.
