My sanitop is not working. i've changed the fuse but no joy. can the motor be burnt as it may have been on for a while since my son left the tap running

If anything goes wrong with the unit it usually happens in the pressure chamber, the motors are very durable, any part in there can be replaced. Im thinking the capacitor might have seized up and will probably need to be replaced.

Need to fit a toilet to an upstairs room with only a 2 inch pipe for evacuations of water and waste ,a hand basin also

The perfect solution will be to use a Sanitop, Sanicompact 48 or the Sanistar model. Visit the Saniflo website at for more detailed information.

Do the saniflow toilet need to be plumbed in to mains waste? I have a patient who needs a toilet located outside the house that needs to be trouble free

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

In short yes it will need plumbed with a smaller drain line to the home waste drain.

The unit uses a fast-rotating blade to reduce waste and toilet paper in the flush water, which is immediately and entirely released under pressure through "small-diameter piping" to the sewer or septic tank. No special maintenance is needed and the pump is sealed for life. This simple and cost-effective alternative to conventional plumbing is ideal for basement renovations and other home-improvement projects. Properly sized, a Saniflo macerating system can handle all the fixtures in a bathroom, including the sink, shower, tub and toilet & endash; even on a septic system. What's more, these fixtures will work up to 12 feet below and as far as 150 feet away from a septic tank or sewer line.

My saniflo pump has stop working, what can be wrong

Have you got power to the pump? .. if it is on a fused spur, check that there is power (i.e. check the mains switch board)

Very Noisy Sanitop Macerator
You will probably be able to find a user manual on the above link. It will tell you whether or not there has to be maintenance on this toilet. I doubt it but it is possible. There should also be trouble shooting advice as well. When all else fails, contact the manufacturer. They will be able to tell you what the problem is and guide you in the right direction.
