Check to make sure that the float is not hung up on something.

How to increase water pressure on wall mounted shower


Yes,,,
You could fit a shower boost pump if you water supply to the shower is gravity fed. Pump both the hot and cold so that the water pressure is equal...

Salamander pumps are the best and have flow switches which activate when the shower is turned on..

There are cheaper pumps available... you get what you pay for...

Water is flowing back to shower tray macerator not switching on


Usually Saniflo requires 8" or 9" from top of p-trap to floor level, not from top of shower base to floor level. If the base is raised 8" then you will have enough room to fit a p-trap without cutting the concrete, if you had cut the floor to fit the p-trap then the base is not raised high enough to maintain the water pressure inside to engage the unit.

Can I ajust the pump to turn on sonner . Some small water back up in shower .until pump turns on.would like to ajust pump level on / off thanks


You will need to get into the pump float area and there should be a float ball that can be adjusted. So the answer is yes.

Saniflow plus works allright for w.c but will not work for shower


Thanks for the clarification - This rules out power supply to the unit, motors/pump and points more towards why the water would be pumped from the WC flush and not the basins ...

1. The Saniflo range of macerators have a pressure switch that engages when the water pressure inside the unit activates a microswitch that is encased in a waterproof container. It is possible that the water pressure from the shower and basins is not great enough to activate the internal switch.

So, I would propose two checks

a) If the unit previously worked for the shower and basins something has changed and it is most likely to be gunk inside the unit causing the switch to be less sensitive and only activate on the high pressure that the WC would provide. The fix would be to open up the unit and clean it - please let me know if you need info on how to do this

b) If this is a new install and the shower and basins never worked, you should check the fall in the pipework into the Saniflo is sufficient (should be 1 in 70 from memory - full install instructions are available from the Saniflo website)

c) It could be that if the unit has been in for a long time with a large number of operations that the microswitch is starting to fail and is not as sensitive as it once was (quite unlikely) - but always a possibility!

Replacement microswitches are freely available online and you should also be able to get the exact match spares from Saniflo

If this helps please leave feedback - if not please let me know and I'll try and help some more!

Good Luck :)

How best to install 3.5 atmosphere water pump to drive shower, bath, toilet and wash basin to two bathrooms, particularly connections to cold and hot water supplies?


Typically a water pump or booster pump would be placed on the main water feed (this assumes this line feeds not only the main cold line but the hot water system too. I work heavily with booster systems and would ask for futher information. Is this system runing off of a pressure switch such as starting a lower pressure and will shut down at a higher pressure or is it a constant pressure system where as the pump is expected to slow down or speed up to met demands? Either way the system will require a pressure tank, the first method of running will require a larger tank. With regadrs to connection this could be sweat in (with copper) or the use of mechanical connections. A proper "spring loaded" check valve would be required too.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom
