How to install toilet macerator?

I must install Saniflo macerator also for single toilet. Pipe must go 3 metres up in the loft when 10 metres horizontally and 3 metres down and should connect it to the waste pipe next to the washing machine connection. Does it interfere with W/M? Which macerator is best and most quiet in UK and what the right way to do it?
Any simple but important installation advices from professionals or from your experience will appreciate

On your out put pipe make sure you put as few turns and bends in it as you can, this will help the pump out when it's grinding and pushing it up. also you will want to use schedule 80 pvc pipe if you can get it and make sure you prime and glue every fitting well because you do not want that to leak when it's started up. it's always good to put a check valve on it as well some where close to where it enters the tank and a shut off valve, the glued pvc valves are handy because you dont have to worry about them leaking

    im sure you could its more expensive that way but to each his own!, make sure it is what they call drainage waste and vent copper, especially the fittings , the fittings have more of an even bend to them instead of being super short and sharp

Any brand approved for septic should work well in the saniflow system, but the key is to use as little as reasonably possible and flush as you go. Big wads of any type will compromise the system.

Check the vent pipe, most of the Saniflo products require an 1 1/2" vent pipe vented to the open air for air flow purposes. Air must flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times.

Typical saniflo costs about 500 quid incl vat from plumbase, prices vary according to what you need it to do.

It keeps making noise becasue the pump is still trying to get rid of the water inside.

it can't get rid of the water most likely because their is a blockage in the waste water pipe.

if possible follow where the waste pipe runs to. if it goes in to a loft or somewhere else VERY COLD there is a good chance that it has frozen somewhere along the pipe.

If you are tying to pump the toilet waste vertically (upwards) then as soon as you turn the power off to the saniflo, the waste will fall back down and in to the toilet - or over the top in your case, sorry!

You might want to accept the inevitable and get a bucket and start removing the waste water from the bowl. Make sure that you have rubber gloves and I suggest goggles and something protecting your mouth - in case you get splashed.

Easiest solution, is to remove the excess waste water, turn off the saniflo, pour some bleach in to the toilet bowl, then cover the bown securley with cling film to keep the rank smell at bay.

Other wise, start tring to follopw the waste water pipe and warm it up, either by directly or indirectly (warm air gun) or by warming the area around it.

Personall;y i am using the easy option. the cold werather won't last forever, but can you use a toilet elsewhere in the meantime.

In the meantime, Saniflo claim about 15 years as the lifespan, but i have never know a saniflo to make it past 3! they are not ideal, but may be your only option.

consider whether you could get a proper toilet waste pipe put in, as it WILL save money in the long run...

Hope this helps a little bit.

unfortunately saniflo - nor any one else publishes a saniflo repair manual. You can get tips online - but thats as far as it goes.

I recently had a Saniflo unit replaced after 20 years + of excellent service from previous model.The macerator serves a single toilet. It does seem rather noisy ( certainly not 30% quieter as suggested)...


David,

I am not directly familiar with this unit but have worked with others. The bubbling sound at the end of the run does sound odd. My thoughts go towards venting of this discharge pipe; is this properly vented?
Thank you,
Tom
