You probably have a dead short in the line. That should fix the problem.

I know nothing about the Saniflo system but I suggest you check in the supplied literature if any routine maintenance is recommended and if so I think it would be wise to do that before looking for further explanations (problems).

I thought my macerator toilet must be blocked as it wasn't emptying in the bowl and when I flushed again the water (and waste) filled more into the bowl and leaked out of the top of the macerator spilling...


Typical saniflo costs about 500 quid incl vat from plumbase, prices vary according to what you need it to do.

It keeps making noise becasue the pump is still trying to get rid of the water inside.

it can't get rid of the water most likely because their is a blockage in the waste water pipe.

if possible follow where the waste pipe runs to. if it goes in to a loft or somewhere else VERY COLD there is a good chance that it has frozen somewhere along the pipe.

If you are tying to pump the toilet waste vertically (upwards) then as soon as you turn the power off to the saniflo, the waste will fall back down and in to the toilet - or over the top in your case, sorry!

You might want to accept the inevitable and get a bucket and start removing the waste water from the bowl. Make sure that you have rubber gloves and I suggest goggles and something protecting your mouth - in case you get splashed.

Easiest solution, is to remove the excess waste water, turn off the saniflo, pour some bleach in to the toilet bowl, then cover the bown securley with cling film to keep the rank smell at bay.

Other wise, start tring to follopw the waste water pipe and warm it up, either by directly or indirectly (warm air gun) or by warming the area around it.

Personall;y i am using the easy option. the cold werather won't last forever, but can you use a toilet elsewhere in the meantime.

In the meantime, Saniflo claim about 15 years as the lifespan, but i have never know a saniflo to make it past 3! they are not ideal, but may be your only option.

consider whether you could get a proper toilet waste pipe put in, as it WILL save money in the long run...

Hope this helps a little bit.

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

It is blocked how do i unblock it


Turn off electricity to saniflo.Turn off water to toilet (normally an inline valve). Empty toilet bowl and cistern of water. Remove toilet, cistern. Disconnect inlet pipes to saniflo (careful as backed up water will flow out!).

Take out Saniflo (outside is normally good). Open up top with star driver and use a flat blade for the plastic retaining flaps.Be sure to wear rubber gloves to keep out germs from cuts etc on your hands.

Cover mains cables with plastic food bag and tape up. Use a solution of bleach / warm water, fill up the sanifo and leave for a while. Swish around and empty into a drain etc. I also use a hosepipe to make sure I get it really clean (esp under motor and float switch). Also check inlet pipe flappy bit and the actual pipes that connect to the saniflo

Good luck

This could be a problem with the capacitor which drives the blade and impeller. If it goes bad it will pump water only but when solids are flushed, it will jam the blade and cause it not to spin. You may have to replace the capacitor/condenser.

Saniflo keeps blocking?


do you have cess pool or city drain.
if it is cess pool , you need to pump it out. IT IS FULL. if it is city, you need a plumber to check the drain to the city line.
