Hi,
The pump has either gone bad or it is siezed up...you can try to unplug the pum and let it sit for a few hours then plug it back in... sometimes if you jog it on and off a few times you can get tiit to break loose and work again...if not you will have to take it out and replace the pump.

I have a saniflo and the shower doesnt drain straight away and when u flush the toilet it bubbles up the shower !


This sounds like a HOUSE plumbing issue. Is the line porperly vented? Bubbling sounds like the line needs venting. If you cannot go through the roof, they now make local vents that work.

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.

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.

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.
