Hi,

Yes you can make the unit sound a bit quieter by sitting it on some foam or bubble wrap as I am guessing it is presently on floor screed or tiles?

I have mine boxed in and tiled (plywood with tiling on top and plastic edging). It is put together so that it can be removed for maintenance of the Saniplus unit. You can also put foam or some insulation in between the Saniflo unit and the boxing-in to deaded the sound.

It unfortunately will never be as quiet as a conventional toilet flush but that is one of the trade-offs

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

Saniplus pump sounds like a jackhammer


I'm glad you asked today, and not 3 months ago!
We also have this model, and ours is hooked to a septic tank, and with a whole lot of trouble, I believe we have your answer.
It is: Toilet paper.
You can pull up the Sani-flush people on line, and they will help you disassemble your unit and clean it. You should find it bound up with a big wad of toilet paper. The newer toilet papers, particularly the softer/gentler/stronger ones, are more glue than paper, and will clog up everything. After our latest go-around a few months ago, we had to go to some stores and buy an assortment of toilet papers, and put samples in glass jars with water, and shake them, to see which would disintegrate, and which stayed together. Because of this, sounds like you will find this the problem. Best not push the motor, or it may burn up, and be quite expensive to fix.
Be blessed,

We have a basement bathroom. The bath drains away very slowly, but everything else seems fine - toilet and sink draining/flushing fine. Can we use a usual unblocker (eg sodium hydorchloride) to unblock?


I worked on a lot of Saniflo products, they do not recommend using any products that have bleach or chlorine. Make sure the flapper inside the side inlet where the bath drains, is not obstructed.

We have a saniflo. We were out, and our babysitter (who isn't familiar with saniflos) was in the bathroom and suddenly she said water was flooding out of the toilet - she said she had heard a loud noise...


If the apple core was right at the pump intake at the time the pump kicked on it very well may have been the problem. The pumps in those units are not the strongest in the world anyway. They are not made to grind up anything that has any bulk to it.

So the answer to the question in my opinion is yes. But you well want to keep a close eye on it for a while.

Bad smell fro macerator when toilet flushed after being left overnight


Typically on macerating or grinder pumps there is a small 1/2" breather hole on top of the lid, about the size of a dime or nickel. That breather hole must be kept plugged or seal cap. If left open, odor will escape through there. Make sure the pump is vented using an 1 1/2" vent pipe which must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times. Also you might want to check for loose connection or waste water leaking from the pump, toilet or any of the connections.

Sounds like a restriction in the outlet pipe, the 2 galls from a flush are OK but the bath or shower is more, especiallly if you have flushed before you shower, try drain unblocking chemicals or flushing the outlet pipe with mains water from a hose

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.
