Question about Saniflo SaniPlus-Round SaniPlus Macerator Toilet with Round Bowl

1 Answer

Saniflo Saniplus pumps intermittently, and I hear a a trickling somewhere back there in the pipes or the unit, but do not know how to find the leak if that is what it is. What pipe could be leakiing back in to the pump? This all started after shutting off the water flow to the house while away on a long weekend...might something have dried out that shoudn't have?

If the discharge pipe runs vertically then the non-return valve is letting water drip back in to the tank and then it will self activate

My Saniplus unit has a very slight leak from the top seal which I noticed when we flushed with the electricity turned off by mistake. I figure this has been the cause of a very slight smell from the unit...

First remove all the piping attached to the unit, remove the whole white box sitting behind the toilet, is only 1 screw holding it to the back of the toilet, then you can remove the 2 screws on top of the lid, pry open the lid using a flat head screwdriver, there is a lid seal in between the lid seal and the pump casing, the lid seal may be kinked or defective which could be the reason why is leaking. You can remove it and re-attach it to make sure is sitting properly. You can also contact Saniflo to order parts.

Saniplus toilet when toilet is flush the masorator tank leaks around the lid, nnot nice seeing \yuck streaks run down

Is not recommended to use 90 degree elbows in the discharge pipe. Is recommended to use 45 degree elbows back to back with a small piece in between or long sweeping elbows. Using hard 90 degree elbows creates resistance in the discharge pipe and does not allow the unit to pump out the waste as efficiently as it should.

The SaniPlus toilet was just installed in my basement about a month ago. The water and waste will not go down. The motor continually runs, but the water level does not go down. Could it be blocked or is...

There could be a blockage somewhere in the drain pipe or inside the pump casing not allowing the waste to be pumped out. Refer to the installation manual/technical data manual and take a look at the schematic diagram for the Saniplus, It will show every component inside the pump casing, the short discharge pipe (# 7c) and long elbow (# 8) may be split open or not attached properly and waste water is just cycling inside the pump casing and not pumping out.

Sanipro continuously runs,however, not pumping waste away and waste water has filled toilet bowl. Any suggestions

There can be a blockage somewhere in the discharge pipe, the blade or impeller. Also the short discharge pipe or long elbow inside the pump casing may be split open or not attached properly and waste water is just cycling inside the pump casing. Worst case scenario could be a bad capacitor, the capacitor spins the blade and impeller, it that goes bad the unit will just hum and not pump any waste out until is replaced. You can also order parts through Saniflo if needed.

Continually pumps

Probably the waste pipe blocked, it should have a rubber join that has worm screw clips securing it, I connect a hose to the"up" pipe and flush the blockage out.

Our Saniplus pump runs for no apparent reason. Do I need a plumber, an electrician or a new unit?

if the pump operates then the pump is ok. if the pump switches on for "no reason", this indicates that the saniflo unit is filling slowly with water. as you have a saniplus, then you probably have a handbasin and bath / shower connected to it. If the taps / valves drip, or the wc cistern "leaks" into the bowl then these could be the sources.

Saniplus motor (flushing noise) keeps repeating

I believe you have a problem with a leak. The pump is filling back up. See is the water is leaking out somewhere. Hopefully, you don't have a leak under the house. The water coming into the pump is going somewhere when it comes on.
