Toilet bowl, and pump housing are full, drain pipe clear? pump not running correctly. how do i drain it to get acsess to pump?

Prepare to get dirty. Use a mug with a handle to lift the water out of the toilet bowl into a bucket. Reduce the water level until it stops increasing from the backflow from the Saniflo. Disconnect the electrical connections (isolate the unit first) Disconnect the outflow pipe but be prepared for some spillage from any vertical pipe in your domestic installation. Ease the boot off the WC soil pipe, Disconnect any breathers. Slide the unit out from behind the toilet but maintaining a backward tipping angle to prevent water inside the unit from spilling out of the boot. Take the whole unit outside, keeping it tipped backwards. Take the lid off, noting how the seal is oriented for reassembly. Use a high pressure garden hose to clean out the interior and inspect. Check the rubber diaphragm on the bottom of the sensor unit. These develop corrugations and become slack over time. If so it will have insufficient power to depress and release the microswitch within the sensor unit. If your unit filled the toilet bowl with soiled water and the pump kept running, it is likely that the non-return valve beneath the outlet pipe is faulty. On some models the valve is Y shaped and the branch of the Y is a rolling ball that falls by gravity when the pump switches off. Replace the valve. If your unit kept running but with clean water in the bowl, it is likely your diaphragm is faulty. Check for corrugations and make sure it is no longer caked with accumulated solid waste. If you cannot buy a new sensor unit complete with diaphragm, you may need a new Saniflo. Both of my Saniflo units stopped working satisfactorily after 10 years. My German built unit has now been working without fault for 19 years.

Saniflo Saniplus won't stop pumping

is it pumping against gravity? if so there is a non-return flap in the outlet spigot could be stuck or worn.

Saniflo stopped working altogether


It sounds like it has possibly failed. Which fuse did you check .. the fused spur from the consumer unit?

i.e. can you confirm that the unit has power to it?

How old is the unit? , has anything gone down there that shouldn't (toy soldiers, wipes ...)?

It may be worth giving it a clean internally. It could be that the pressure switch is gunked up and no longer working, or that the motor has gone.

If this helps please leave feedback

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.

When flushed pump starts water goes but pump keeps running when level is reached

pump keeps running - again this is indicative of a dirty / scaled saniflo. You need to clean / descale the saniflo. if this does not work then an outlet pipe blockage (22mm) may have occurred (unlikely if the unit is operating ok). Saniflo sell their own cleaner, which can be introduced via the wc bowl. If this does not work, then its time for a proper clean ( remove unit, jet clean, acid descale, wash, replace). Obviously not everyones cuppa tea.
