You can try using it first (Mr. Muscle Sink and Drain Cleaner). It it will clear the pipeline, that's ok. Otherwise,
you have to use a mechanical declogging tool to clear it.

Toilet and shower runs great for a year> just had a sink hooked up and now toilet and shower back-up> was the sink hooked up wrong? to a vent or wrong pipe>


Nah, that doesn't sound like the toilet or sink were hooked up wrong, your sewage tank is probably full, you can have it pumped out for $100 or so. They fill up every so often for w/e reason.

Vent on top is blowing bubbles and toilet pan is filling up with effluent


If you have a Saniplus model then the vent connection is on the top right side of the pump casing if you are facing the toilet with pump sitting behind. The vent pipe needs to be minimum 1 1/2" and must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out at all times. To the left side of the vent connection is the discharge pipe which should be a 3/4" or 1" discharge pipe. You can try disconnecting the vent pipe and run it with the vent pipe open, also you can disconnect the discharge pipe and put a bucket at the end of the discharge elbow and flush the toilet into the bucket, it will free flow into the bucket and there are no restrictions. That way you can tell if the problem is the pump or the installation set up.

I have a saniplus in a bathroom with a sink & shower. It isn't used often. The water backs up in the shower. The toilet won't flush, only hums. Any suggestions?


If the pump is humming and backing up then there is a blockage on the drain pipe, blades or the impeller. Also the capacitor may have gone bad and it will need to be replaced. The capacitor drives the blade and impeller, if it goes bad then it would just hum and not pump out the waste.

Shower does not drain. everything alse works good


One of my customers had a similar problem. The solution was that the shower base needed to be elevated. From top of shower drain to floor level should be roughly 8" to 9"

My saniflo will not pump out and water is backing up in the sink


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

My saniflow toilet is blocked and a plumber has told me i need a new motor. where can i get this and how much are they?


If you hear it making noise the motor isnt blown, but it could be clogged.

A quick an easy fix is by filling a 5 gallon bucket with hot water (or warm water) and slowly pouring it into the bowl. The warm water breaks the particles up further, and will help flush the unit out. Make sure you run the water alot after its cleared out (to flush the debris). You can do that by turning on the shower or sink (if connected). If you dont have a shower or sink just keep flushing the toilet.
