Question about Saniflo & Saniplus& Macerator Pump
I hear a high pitched sound in my house, not noticably coming from the saniflo location but wondered if this could be causing it? As the 2 saniflo units I have are behind tile I was trying to determine if this was the cause before doing a lot of tile work.
The 2 tests I performed were to shut off all the power to the house at the mains and to shut off all the water from the mains at different times. In these two situations does the saniflo still operate as neither test stopped the noise. I'm getting desperate please help. Thanks very much!
Saniflow units are completely silent, except when actually pumping. It's worth noting that because they are electrically operated they will not work if you have a power cut - so don't use toilets or anything else attached to them if there's no power or you'll be in big trouble!
Another point about the Saniflows... it may be neat to put them behind tiles, but they will require regular access for servicing so it's not really practical. I advise covering them with a panel that can be quickly and simply removed, if you must cover them with anything, that is.
With regard to the noise (and I ask this in all seriousness), does anyone else hear it? Although you've tried turning off the water at the mains, it's still possible for noise to be transmitted along water pipes from elsewhere (as can be caused by leaks, for example, which can be quite high-pitched).
Apart from that, thought turn to possible insect infestation - bees, wasps or other things depending where in the world you are! Maybe you also need to consider when it started and whether you can connect other changes in your house with that time. Also, is it continuous or intermittent? If intermittent, is there anything else that happens at the same time?
If you find a cause, please do post a reply, as I'm fascinated to know what this is! If you need more help, please post your question again and I'll leave it for someone else to have a go at.
